My family are ready to build our first pool, we got two bids so far. The following bid is quite attractive, but is there any thing I want to modify for better pool performance.
I will change to variable speed pump for extra $500. Add two deck jets for $450. Change the depth to 5ft and change the sun shelf to a shallow water area about 2.8 ft that is about 1/4 the size of the pool for my young son. I perfer salt water system but PB said not a good idea because of the corrosive nature.
Thank for all the help.
