I just found this wonderful board while researching pools. I am located in NJ and am a new homeowner looking to build a pool by next summer. Any advice that can be given or links to answer my questions will be greatly appreciated.
I am looking at a 20x30 gunite pool. It is on sale now for $39,999 installed and ready to swim. I checked them out with the BBB and they had 12 negative reviews. Should I run? They have been in business for a longtime.
Oh I chose Gunite because my back yard has water and all the pool places told me a fiberglass pool would float as did my neighbors who own pools.
I am going to finance my pool and am wondering what is a realistic number? I am thinking $75,000 total. Is $35,000 in the ball park for cement and extras? Or should I budget higher? My dad is an architect who works for a builder. I will get a few breaks.
Thank you in advance for your help,
