    Bids are in, here is the one we are thinking

    We got 3 bids, and have been narrowing it down. Please find below the equipment/cost, plus some items I bounced off the PB to get his thoughts.

    This is for the one we are liking so far. We are located in Missouri.

    Pool Specs
    * In ground vinyl liner 20x34 lagoon shaped 6' deep
    * Hydra Pinnacle panels
    * Liner by Premier (PB says liner seamless this year, big improvement visually)
    * Wedding cake interior steps
    * Rock backfill
    * Drain Tile around perimeter of pool, Pool Krete under liner (is this drain tile enough??)
    * EasyTouch 4 or 8 with actuators for water feature and deck jet ($1800 upgrade)
    * IC40
    * Pentair Cartridge 420
    * Pentair IntelliFlo (or IntelliPro) VS pump ($600 upgrade from single speed)
    * 48" stone planter water feature with 36" Pentair MagicFalls sheer descent ($4000 upgrade)
    * Single Pentair deck jet ($200 upgrade)
    * 2 Pentair IntelliBrite 5g pool lights ($1400 upgrade)
    * Pacific mesh safety cover ($2900 upgrade, seems high?)
    * 2 Skimmers, individually plumbed for equalization
    * 2 Main Drains, plumbed separately
    * Stone coping around perimeter of pool ($4500 upgrade)
    * 1274 sq/ft of concrete decking, fiber reinforced ($1800 upgrade)
    * Spray deck type coating ($5000 upgrade)
    * One outlet on pool backside
    * Four umbrella sleeves
    * 120' of 54" aluminum fencing, with 2 gates
    * 24' of 6' vinyl fencing, to hide equipment
    * Gas line for future heater
    * Gas line to 3 gas tiki torches
    * Demo existing deck
    * Rebury downspouts

    Total Cost: $66,000

    Questions
    * PB stated stamped concrete can be really slick when wet, and hot - Recommended their "spray deck". Similar to SunDek/KoolDek. Is a $4 sq/ft upgrade. Worth it?

    * PB stated variable speed pump would be IntelliPro VS-3050, but this shows discontinued on some sites. I was wanting IntelliFlo VS. Not sure what the difference is, or which would be best??

    * Stone Planter (48" by 24" by 18" tall) will sit on gravel before concrete deck pour, any recommendations for extra support? This one is very similar, but much larger: http://www.troublefreepool.com/under...t52104-20.html

    Any input would be much appreciated!!

    Also I would lean toward a sand filter instead of the cartridge since you aren't putting an auto cover on. Also personally I would get a solid cover not a mesh. Everything else looks pretty good to me.
