First, I just want to say that this seems like a great place to have all my questions answered.
I was wondering if I could get some opinions here.
They may have already been posted in other Forums, but I think I would be searching for a long time.
I am going through the process of dealing with a pool company now to have a pool installed.
They came out for a site visit and took the site survey of my house so they had all the correct dimensions.
Unfortunately, I discovered that the site survey is incorrect, so I had to have them do another one for me which
is causing a delay to have the pool plans drawn out for me.
I've decided to go with a fiberglass pool because from the research that I've done, fiberglass seems the way to go as far as maintenance is concerned. I just bought the house in July of last year, so I'm planning on being there for a very long time.
I'm strongly leaning towards the Riviera 34 from Leisure Pools because you can get different colors and they also have a great warranty.
Does anyone know anything about these pools?
The company that I am working with gave me a costs of just over $36K and that is an all inclusive price including 4 feet of decking around the pool. Does this seem like a decent price?
Also, I'm on the fence as to whether or not I want to spend $4K-5K on a heater/heat pump.
I live in NE Florida, so it would be nice to be able to extend the amount of time we'll be able to swim, but I'm not sure if that much money will justify it. Is anyone here from the NE Florida area, and do you have an opinion if I should get the heater or not.
We will also be getting a screen room installed, so I'm going to assume that's another $10,000-$12,000.
Also, should I get a SWG? I've been reading about the pros and cons of the SWG, and again, is the money worth it?
Well, I guess I'll stop rambling for now.
Any responses as well as any other information for a Newbie would be greatly appreciated.
