Hi! I just found this forum a few weeks ago and have read just about all of it now, I think (can we say obcessed with getting a pool?) We have a 6yo and 7yo and we want to enjoy the time we have together. The kids love to swim and we love the idea of them bringing their friends to our house instead of us sending them out somewhere all of the time.
Gunite, fiberglass etc are probably going to have to be ruled our due to financial constraints. We got a ballpark figure from a couple of places. The vinyl liner pool people tols us around $23000-$25000 for a basic 18x36 setup. We talked to a Doughboy dealer who told us about $10,000 for a similarly sized pool. We would still need to build a deck at that price.
We are planning to have them and others come out to the house and give us actual quotes, but I have a few questions in the meantime. Basically, I am wondering if anyone can elaborate on the pros and cons of one over the other. Thanks! I am looking forward to your responses!
(PS I posted this on another forum but did not get many responses)
