We are building a pool and having a 400K BTU installed. The pool company doesn't run the gas line, so I have been working this and got our first quote today.
Of course our gas comes on the opposite side of where the equipment will be. Our gas line for our furnace and water heaters runs up the side of our 2 story house into the attic where the equipment is. So we need a new gas line for the pool heaters. To trench around the house is 170' of hard, rocky south Texas soil. Up and over through the attic would be 20 feet up, 20 feet down and about 50 feet across. So here is the shocking first quote.
With a 10% Angie's List discount --- $7,011. Yep. Thats right. That is 7K. To me that just sounds like highway robbery.
Anyone have any similar circumstances for comparison. I was expecting to pay around $3000 or less for up and through the attic gas line.
