We live in Northern NJ and just had a guy out for an estimate for an inground pool for about 45k (without heater). We are going to try to get some different estimates too but would love any advice or tips that I can get as we really have no idea! We are in a rocky area so we will be using boulders in the landscape and are debating about shape, size, concrete patio color and liner color. We are leaning toward a tan liner because I love the look and have heard it increases the temp of the pool a lot. Do you think we need a heater in Northern NJ? Also, I love the lagoon shape but am open to rectangle or free form. Also if you have any pool contractor recommendations for NJ that would be awesome! Thanks!!!
