    PebbleTec upgrade cost sound reasonable?

    PB quoted me $7,500 to upgrade from Diamond Brite to PebbleTec Pebblesheen for ~600sqft pool and 100sqft sun shelf. The pool is 105 linear feet. Does this sound right? I was expecting more like $3k-$4k.

    80 views and no takers? I'd imagine this is a common consideration for pool builds, no? We can't afford $7500 either way but with some good reference points perhaps there is an opportunity to negotiate.

    Sounds pricey imo, but I'm in AZ not FL, so prices may differ. I paid something like 4-5k for mine in a 580~sqft pool.

    I just got a quote for $7200 stonescapes mini pebble, which I wasn't expecting. I had budgeted more like $6000. That's for 130 linear feet, not sure of the rest. I'm going to have to call around.

    Does 7500 to upgrade means paying $ 7500 over and above what was already priced out for Diamond Brite?

    If it is a straight 7500, I think it is in the ball park.

    That would be a high price in California. Part of the reason may be that your PB can do the Diamond Bright himself while he must bring in an authorized dealer for the Pebble-Tec. See if you can cut a deal with the dealer directly.

    Remember its an upgrade.

    Re: PebbleTec upgrade cost sound reasonable?

    I am from central FL and the upgrade price to pebble finish is NOT reasonable..but it's common. I had multiple quotes for my pool. One company quoted me 8600 for pebbletech finish for I believe a 560 squareft pool. Eventually we found a pool company who quoted us 2700 for stonescape mini pebble finish for a 720 squareft pool! The entire pool build is roughly 35k cheaper than any other company!

    As you can see, HUGE differences for people who don't shop around.
