    What???!!!!! $1300 for a gas line


    We are/were thinking about getting a heater for the pool we're getting. I just got 2 quotes $1395 and $1200!!!!!
    Is that outrageous or is it just me?
    FYI the distance between the meter and the pool is approximately 50 feet. If you have a heater, how much did it cost you?
    Does it cost a fortune to run it to?

    Thanks for any input!!

    That is a reasonable price in MD. I got 3 quotes and each were around $2500, but they also installed the heater for me and didn't dig the ditch - I did. But let me say this - I LOVE gas heat!!! and it was worth it.

    Sounds reasonable considering the cost of the copper (pretty high right now, as with many other metals), the cost of skilled labor to install it and all of the "extras" like digging, permits, inspections, etc.

    I looked into running a gas line to my house a few months back for a new gas instant-on water heater and a gas dryer and stove. Just the cost from the gas company to the house (about 60 feet) was $3200! From there, I'd do my own runs to the pool, BBQ, etc. That said, just the materials on the do it myself install were going to be over $1000.

    That's not bad at all You'll find with an AGP that the pool itself is the cheapest part of getting the pool up and running. I ended up paying $899 for the pool and about $9k for the rest... deck, electric, permits, solar panels, pump, filter, SWG...ugh, ok time for me to forget that time and look fwd to enjoying the pool

    The line goes underground? Just the risers are pretty expensive.. and then they charge you a lot because they can.
