    New build in Oklahoma

    Good evening all! I have been reading quite a bit on here and love all the useful info that everyone has shared on here! We are currently in the bid stage and ready to move forward once we find everything we like. We are looking at gunite free form pools and have a bid we would like some opinions on. The bid is 90 perimeter apprx 33x22.5 free form with shallow 3' and 6' deep with no diving accessory. The bid comes with flagstone coping, 500 sq ft of stamped, stained and sealed concrete, 2 skimmers, 1 light, 2 drains, quartz finish, sun shelf with 2 bubblers, as many benches in the pool as we like, Pentair whisperflo 1.5 hp pump, kreepy krauly legend cleaner, and Pentair 420 cartridge filter system. The pool can either be saltwater or ozone, but they really like the ozone system. We will have to have a small border wall on one side of our pool due to the way our backyard is sloped. Bid is coming in right at $50,000. What are your opinions?

    New build in Oklahoma

    Welcome to TFP !!

    One thing I would like to comment on is the ozone. Don't waste your time or money on it. Do a search on the forum about it. Search alternative sanitizers. Go with the SWG over the ozone.

    Others will be along to make some more comments on ozone and the rest of your build.

    Good luck with your build and be sure to include pictures.
    Hope you enjoy the forum !

    Welcome!

    Ozone doesn't make sense for an outdoor residential pool. If you want to get into the technical details, see: maintaining-fc-with-ozonator-t43923.html#p358992.

    SWG adds convenience, and is a good way to maintain the right chlorine level. Consider getting a 2-speed motor. You can run on low speed most of the time which will save electricity costs, and the motor itself isn't much more than the cost of a single-speed.

    Just repeating, but Nix the ozone. If your PB "really likes it", I would not trust his chemistry advice from here on out....period.

    thanks for the insight guys, I will do some more research on here and see what I come up with on the ozone. I am hopeful the price for the prize is in range as well. Feel free to chime in that as well.

    prices obviously vary in different parts of the country for different reasons.
    I live 100 miles East of Dallas. 50K would be in the ballpark for that pool where I live.

    thanks for the insight bud, I really appreciate it. I know there are so many variables with each set up. I just want to make sure I might be paying out the nose for something I could get for less and the same quality
