    Newbie: Arizona DIY Pool Sub Contractors Needed

    Ready to dig! We are re-locating an 8" irrigation line from Roosevelt Water to allow a pool, that's a feet in of itself as the pipe is oval after 30 years in the ground so matching up a new fitting to re-locate is cumbersome but getting done.

    A little help is needed for an in-ground build in Mesa, AZ,

    Does anyone have a list of subs for the following:

    Pool Designer for city and build prints
    Re-Bar Installers
    Shot Crete Company
    Wholesale Equipment House for the pumps filter etc.
    I have the hookup for electrician and slab decking tile work...

    Pool is 14 x 26 depth 3 - 4.5 - 3 w/ Baja Step, sm. Feature
    Design Print 500
    Permit 350
    Excavation 3000
    Plumbing 1500
    ReBar 1100
    Electrical 1200
    Shotcrete 3500
    Tile 500
    Decking 3000
    Equipment 2000
    Pebble Finish 4000
    Water Feature 1500

    You're underestimating overall costs by around $10K. I realize you're barely scratching the surface with those depths, but hard costs don't vary that much with a shallow pool over a sport pool (4-5.5-4 water depth). If you can end up getting the pool you've described done for under $35K you will have done extremely well. Your estimate of $22,150 is wishful thinking I'm afraid.

    Following up on the depths...please be sure to consider those depths carefully. That is very shallow. 4-5-4 is a depth I frequently see people going with that get sports pools here. Most start shallower and then after further consideration and input from TFP, end up making it deeper. I'm 5' 7" and 3' is still well south of my waist.

    Best of luck with your pre-install details and finding contractors.
