We've decided on a vinyl pool (to keep costs down) with an upscale look (which is driving the cost back up).
I would love some feedback the proposed equipment and how we might get our costs down w/o sacrificing too much.
For instance, we want a slide but have decided to plumb for that with the build and put it in the following year. We have a similar plan for a heat pump in the future. Not sure if there are other options like that that we haven't considered yet. TIA!
