1st off.... does anyone else think its stupid that I have to have pool fence around my pool when my house is 100 feet away from a 3 acre, 18 ft deep community pond?
anyhoo.... preliminary #s coming in for buried doughboy pool:
16 x 32 autumn breeze: $5599.00
+200 liner upgrade for 7 ft deep end
+259 for cake steps (they gave me a $140 credit since i wont be getting a ladder, steps are $399.00.)
+ 270 upgrade from Doughboy pump and filter to Hayward 250lb sandfilter and 1.5 hp pump.
- $500 coupon I received from doughboy for typing in my email address on their site a week ago.
+ tax 8.375%
+ install (3400 because its on slope and it will be buried 2 feet on one end, 3 feet on the other, plus excavate for deep end)
+ 1,100 to extend out our already big back porch to reach pool (basically an 8 x 30 concrete pool deck on one side of pool)
+ 700 for electric ( this is rough estimate, have electrician coming by to consult on monday)
+ 300 bucks for stupid vinyl fence around any part of pool that is less than 35 inches above ground, per stupid city codes
+1000 bucks rough estimate for metal pool fence to close off back porch
total cost $13,800.00, give or take a grand depending on electrical, fence, the builder unearthing Hoffa when he digs this thing out......
anyone have any ideas on pool fence cheap to satisfy the code? i know the safety aspects and all, and I do have a 3 year old, but I dont let her out without me or momma, we have top locking bolts on all doors, plus alarm chimes since we already have to worry about pond.
