Adjustments to the intial quote we already requested but have not yet recieved an updated quote: The PB said he has an SR Smith Vortex in stock that he got "Display pricing" on over the off season and he will give us a great deal on. We are thinking of switching from the PAL 3 LED system to a single Intellibrite color LED in the deep end. The auto cover is from Cover pools, and we want to go with the flush track rather than the top track as spec'd, unsure on hidden reel vs bench kit. PB is ALL about sand filters and does not normally stock cartridge filters. He is also very against SWG saying that a normal 3 step process is not as difficult as some make it out to be. He was pushing a UV sanitizer along with the 3 step chlorine, but I think we are going to pass on that. Concrete is listed as broom finish but he was displaying some sort of acrylic sealant (I am assuming sundek or equivalent). Initial thought was for the concrete used for coping to be dyed for contrast from the rest of the patio. At the present we are thinking broom finish with cantilever edge. No color, no stamping.
Here is a rough "blueprint" of what things will look like:
It was drawn with excel so it should be fairly accurate. Top of image is South, Right is West, etc.
We are looking for the most bang for the buck, willing to spend extra for features that add value, not as interested in things like water features, extensive landscaping, etc. Thanks in advance for any feedback!
