We have just began the construction of our first pool. I wish I could of found this site prior to starting the process. I live on a very steep lot, so I had a hard time finding reasonable quotes. The good thing is I still have time to make changes to my equipment. Please take a look of what I have and answer a few questions for me. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Gunite pool/spa combo
spa will be level with pool deck
perimeter of 89 about 97 with spa
34 x 19 free form

Jandy flopro pump 2hp dual speed - one pump will run pool and spa
Jandy JS sand filter 30"
1 Jandy led color pool light

Polaris 280 pressure cleaner
400 sqft of pool decking Belgard Lafitt pavers ( will be adding 500 more on my own. (i didn't want to pay the price to have them do it)
1- The price as of now is right at 50k. Is that a good price for what I'm getting?
2- Should I pay 400.00 to add a light to the spa?
3- What is everyone thoughts on the equipment? Should I upgrade anything?
4- I would like to ad some automation down the line, what should i change now to make that process easier?
5- They dug my pool on Friday and put rebar in of Sunday. What they have done so far looks very good and professional. Should I be concerned that I haven't seen them all week?
6- Please provide any general ideas or thoughts on the project.
