    Re: Pool design-price advice

    Get names and model numbers for every piece of equiptment.

    1- Pool pump name,hp rating, service factor, voltage/amperage and gallon per min. Is it single speed, 2 speed, or a variable speed?

    2- Pool filter package- What type of filter ( DE, Cartridge,or sand ) Name brand, filter area.

    3 - Piping size , pvc or flex, How many skimmers and returns. how many and what size main drain(s).

    4- Lose the test kit if it will yeild 68 bucks and get a tf-100 from here.

    5- Who pays to hual off dirt?

    6- Will the pool be plaster, liner etc? The type of finish should be listed as well as any other info like color.

    7-what type of valving ( jandy or pentair valves, or el cheapo )

    There is more but its all about specification. Have every thing spelled out in writing. Do not accept any verbal agreement. While your pool is not the most expensive I have seen its still a great deal of money, and you are smart to ask questions now.
    Be sure to post on your progress, often there are questions that come up.
