I just called our local furnace service people to see how much it would be to run a gas line from our meter to the potential pool site. I just about fainted when I saw the cost. 1300.00 for the line and fittings for a 400K BTU pool heater. It is a mere 1100.00 for a 300K BTU pool Heater. That is running it through the house instead of trenching outside. (plus that would be a lot longer run than through the house)
So do I call a plumber to do this kind of stuff for less money? I was hoping to only spend 500.00 on this. It doesn't make sense that to install a heater it costs as much as the heater itself. Cripes, I'd have to make that pool heater heat my home for this price!
We are in Minnesota, so I'm sure costs are a little higher since pools aren't that popular around here (we do have 10,000 lakes after all. I don't like swimming with fish).
Thanks for the help!
