    That doesn't sound bad for what you list.
    The first thing you need to do is ditch the Nature┬▓ and go with an swcg or liquid feeder.

    It's a system where liquid chlorine is injected into the pool to maintain the FC level. Usually a tank and pump system.

    Did you get other quotes yet? If not, I suggest you get 2 or 3 others. I just went through this process as well. I'm actually finishing up my build this week.

    Send me a PM if you have any specific questions about those builders. I actually got bids from them all as well. I ended up chosing Riverbend.

    River bend Sandler built our pool in 2002. Cost was $46K, the decking lifted, the pool is unlevel. I had them come out and they gave me a bid of $30K to fix it after 5 years of use. I would stay away from them.

    your specs are almost identical to ours except our perimeter is slightly smaller 99', and our pool was 18x36. last summer we paid $33k for our pool but we're in the houston area. i would dump the nature 2 fusion.

    You could save half a grand by dropping that svrs pump and going with the vf model. 2 lights is a good idea for LED. I wish I had put two in.

    The svrs is unnecessary if you have multiple drains and vgb compliant covers.

    According to the PB.. Frisco, TX is one of the few city's that require the SVRS pump for safety reason.?? PB also was not too big on the LED lights since they are not as bright. Said the LED's go better with the lighter plaster colors bottoms.. Said the regualar lights are much brigher and more powerfull..
