    Newbie - Need Advice on New Pool

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm VERY new to this process but have finally given in (well almost) to build a pool in my backyard. Because I'm still in the educational phase I was hoping if you could give me some guidance on a proposal I received. I actually have 2 but I like this PB the best and it appears as though his references are pretty solid.

    This is the proposal:

    16' x 28' shotcrete with pebble tec plaster
    392 square feet
    3 1/2' x 5' depth (i'm thinking it should be deeper)
    6' x 5' tanning shelf with 3 entry steps
    (2) 4 x 18" love seats
    goldline salt purification system
    maintenance kit, telescopic pool, bruch, thermo, ph test kit
    polaris 280 automatic pool cleaner with dedicated booster ppump
    plumbing with 40PVC, 1 skimmer and 3 return lines dedicated & separat w/ schedule (40) 2" PVC; 30 skimmer-to-pool plumbing run
    electrical disconnect subpanel
    12" flagstone coping
    (1) swimclear 500 watt pool light (is color logic LED better?)
    automatic timeclocks & freeze protection
    (1) hayward 1.5 northstar pool pump
    (1) hayward 1 HP cleaneer booster pump; jandy neverlube valves
    hayward swimclear 425 cartridge filer
    hayward 250,000 BTU header with electronic ignition; 25' run
    700 sq ft sundeck decking
    6" ceramic tile at waterline
    double main drains in deeper end of pool
    36 square feet of raised bond beam faced with tile
    3' sheer descent waterfall
    price = $40K

    open to ideas, recommendations, etc.

    2001 model 16'x26'x52" AG, buried 2 feet
    pentair sand filter
    WaterCo pump w/2 speed motor

    just wanted to say HI, and glad you found us, so after you build you will have a Trouble Free Pool!

    8000 gallon 20' x 48" round vinyl frame pool, 12" sand filter (don't have the specs on the pump), TF100 test kit
    Handy Links: PoolMath, TF-100 Test Kit, Pool School, CYA-Chlorine Chart
    "Shock" is a process, not a product!
