    New Pool Build Quote - thoughts - Upstate New York

    I am so happy I found this website, and have been quietly reading for some time. Thank you all for your helpful comments and information!

    I received this quote for a freeform, vinyl pool in upstate NY. In addition to this quote, I also received a quote of 60k for a grotto, from my research that is extremely high.

    Any thoughts? I already know from lurking that the flex pvc pipe is not ideal.

    Thank you in advance for your time, thoughts, comments and help!

    Welcome to TFP!

    $75K sounds really high. Your pool is rather large, which does justify part of that, but usually for that kind of price you get something on the order of custom stone work and pebble tec plaster.

    By the by, I hate gate valves. It is well worth the tiny price bump to get never lube, or equivalent, valves.

    Thank you for your input! This is such a great place and I am so happy to have found this community.

    The difference in valves is something that, despite all of the research I have been doing, I wasn't aware of.

    I agree with the price - extremely high - in fact, significantly higher than the gunite quotes I have been getting in. Hmmmm... wonder why...?
