    No ozone needed. Residential pools don't benefit.

    No Oklahoma Flagstone coping either. It doesn't last due to it's softness.

    Go with Watercolor LED lights, not incandescent. You won't be sorry.

    Your water supply should dictate the filter. If you need to minimize water consumption, i.e. backwashing in a drought, I would go with a large cartridge and a 3 way valve on the pump exhaust for draining and vacuuming to waste.

    Pricing is very regionalized and I don't build pools, just fix and augment existing ones.

    Where are you in Texas? Is there a lot of rock in your ground?

    That sounds like a fair deal to me. We live in Austin & got similar bids for a pool without a spa (we have a lot of rock).
