Hello form Jacksonville, FL
So we have decided that after selling our wonderful boat after 10 years of ownership, instead of a new boat, we will be installing a pool. We are in our 30's and have a very energetic 6 year old who loves to swim. Over the last 2 weeks we have met with 6 local pool builders and have just started to receive some bids and designs.
PB's we are considering:
Pools By John Garner
Pools by John Clarkson
Superior Design Pools and Spas
We are looking to do an IG 20x40 rectangle with a roughly 10x10 sunshelf, SWCG, VS pump and paver deck. We will cover existing concrete porch and continue out into the pool deck with pavers. ~1200 sq. ft
Have noticed just from initial meetings that there is clearly a different vibe between each PB. Who's listening to what we want, who is pushing what they want to do... etc.
Just some initial differences I have seen on the basic construction side is a couple of the builders use #3 rebar installed 10" on center vs. 12" centers. They also use 5000 psi concrete as well. Some use gunnite and some use shotcrete. Any benefit to one vs the other?
All PB's use Pentair or Hayward.
I'll post a picture of the blank canvas later on today and a rendering or 2.
