    Worried if I Paid Too Much?

    It's been in the back of my mind to post what I paid for some major equipment work I had done to the pool this past summer. I'm interested in getting some peace of mind over whether I paid too much or just right. The prices include installation and equipment. I live in north central Florida.

    $3100 install Rheem P-M206A-EP-C heater
    $2500 install Hayward EcoStar SP3400VSP pump and Hayward Star Clear Plus C17502 filter
    $900 Regrout pool tile and deck area
    $699 Replace Hayward Turbo Cell 15
    30' x 15' ~ 15,000 gallon pool & spa, Diamond Brite, Hayward Aqua Logic PS-4, Turbo Cell T-Cell 15 SWG, EcoStar SP3400VSP pump , Star Clear Plus C17502 filter, Rheem P-M206A-EP-C heater, Caretaker 99 5-port 1.5 inch valve

    Well, that certainly is a tough question. What value do you gain if someone posts and says you paid too much or just right or too little?

    It seems to me if you are satisfied with the work, then "just right" is the answer.

    The pricing certainly seems reasonable but without knowing the complete scope of the work, no one on the internet can answer your question.

    While those prices look to be about the range I'd expect to see, And Dave has a great point. You paid for it, it's installed and as long as it's working as expected I'd say you got your money's worth.
