So - if your average newbie asked a lot of questions consider a risk aversed guy from the UK - a place where owning a pool is a pipedream even from the rish and famous
We are new to the pool game and the USA (about 2.5 years). We are looking to buy a house in Sussex county and ideally one with a pool but there is limited inventory on but still many we like without a pool. Next comes the 'how long is a piece of string question' - how much will it cost to get the yard complete with an inground pool (inground we are certain of). We ha heard the 50/50 split of get/don't get a pool (cost, maintenance, resale hazards and safety (we have our second child due in August)) however going back to my opening statements - in our home country nobody has a pool so this feels like a 'within reach' luxury that is all part of our american adventure.
So looking at vinyls versus Fiberglas (edging to fiberglass) and some reputable instlalers who can do the pool and fence and land scaping.
Did see some +4 year old posts here and mention of njpoolguy but if anyone has any pointers on total costs for pool and landscaping and fence or installers it would help out a lot. May help us decide on whether to buy a property without a pool at a given price and then install right away.
Thanks in advance
