So we are getting closer to our new home. Have been looking at lots to build and existing homes, Looked at a few with pools and a lot with out. Started to design my pool as after having an in ground pool for the last 9 years, its pretty much a requirement to have one lol. IM personally hoping we find a house with out a pool so I can concentrate 100% on building the dream pool.
Anyway I have questions and want to know if im demanding too much. I know the old saying goes "if you have the money anything is possible" but want to know if im being too ridicules here and over budget.
This is the design I have done on my program after having lived with my pool and the thoughts we have all had of "that would be nice to have" All equipment is pentair.
Our budget for the pool is 100k. I know build costs vary by state. But keep this in mind. IM in western Va.
32x18 vinyl liner rectangular pool
intelliflo 4x160 pump with 400 pound sand filter (have a d.e. cartridge hybrid now and its way to much work)
salt water system.
400k BTU heater.
3 foot shallow end and 6 foot deep end.
Steps in shallow end run entire width of the pool
Paramount in floor cleaning system
Fiberglass Spill over spa on right side of pool in the middle. On either side of it a plant bowl with sheer decent (lit as well).
Spa is hooked up to main pump for circulation. Has separate 2 hp pump and 1.5 hp blower for jets.
On deep end of pool a Cozy cove, also with a 2 hp pump and 1.5 hp blower for jets.
1 Hp pump for sheer decents.
Water slide 1/2 hp pump for slide. Neighbors have a slide running off the main pump and its just not enough water when running. And it makes the jets very weak
recessed ladder in deep end.
2 lights in pool, 1 in spa.
Non recessed automatic cover (that way it can cover the cove, not just the pool)
I understand the cove and spa are a bit redundant. But the cove is the temp of the pool and the spa is hot, so that way you can have your choice as to what to relax into. This currently its an argument in the household between which one is better to have so my way of settling it is just installing both.
I am a developer with lots of connections for supplies and subs so I will be the general contractor. So factor this in.
Anyway im sure this formatted badly and is hard to read. AS soon as I figure out an online picture place I will upload the design I have done. Thanks for any help or tips.
