I need help please to understand something. We started off with a 1,280 sq ft pool and it came out to be $23.58 a sq ft base price for just the pool. Then we scaled down to 1,152 sq ft and it then was $25.68..both were L shape. People keep telling us those are way to big, so I priced a 1,000 sq ft rectangle is it was $26.63 sq ft. What I'm confused about is he just told me that a rectangle is a lot less work and that the cost is significantly less on a rectangle. I told him I didn't understand because the sq ft price is more?? He said they come up with a base price and for example if I decided to go with a 20x40 instead of 20x50 it would be $3,000 less because they figure $300 x 10ft= $3,000. He told us before with adding and subtracting is was $300 a ft. He can figure it however he wants but the 20x40 rectangle is more expensive which is opposite of what he is saying. Is there something I'm not getting??
