I've been researching this site for a while now and we’re getting ready to sign a contract with a pool company and trying to get a good grasp on budgeting. Right now, we have the below list of options we are interested in going with our selected pool company:
18’x36’ Permacrete Rectangle w/1 Roman End (w/a possible upgrade charge for freeform)
Concrete Walls & Bottom
2 Bottom Main Drains
8’ Wide Concrete Stairs
Built-In Swim Out
Mineral Springs Chlorine Generator
750 sq. ft. Stamped Concrete Decking
ColorLogic 12v Underwater Light
28 Mil Liner
1 Stair Jet
Stainless Steel Handrail (Ladder also included)
Hayward 1.0 H.P. Super Pump
Safety Line & Floats
Complete Project Management
We have an existing 4’ vinyl fence that does not meet pool code so we are planning right now to knock down part of it and enclose the pool in it’s own chainlink or aluminium fence that meets code.
After pricing everything out, we decided to hold of purchasing the dolphin pool vacuum and winter safety cover until we have a better idea of the overall cost of the project.
Can anyone out there give me any advice on my list of spec’s or tell me any “gotchas” that might arise. I know it’s hard to know what’s going to happen during excavation until it happens. They believe we have very good soil for backfill.
Thanks for any input.
