    Installing a pool railing stair handle $425

    Hello All,
    I'm getting ready to have a pool railing installed received a quote of $425. Does this sound reasonable?
    It's a basic Stainless Steel handle. Will not be mounted in the water, but in the deck. The concrete deck will need 2 holes drilled, the mounts installed, hydraulic cemented in, 24 hours later they mount the handle.

    That rail should be electrically bonded. $425.00 sounds cheap.
    I would not trust a railing held in place with hydraulic cement (too much torque when using the rail).

I think the practices regularly espoused on this forum (especially the BBB method) are outstanding; however my comments will be often oriented towards the goal of getting it done, and getting it done right now!

    That must be one big a$# drill bit.
    When it comes to a regular porch step handrail, i thought being cemented in was better then having a 4 bolt base? because of kids loosening nuts from playing around.
    How do you get it bonded?
    hey thanks
