    Thanks for all the suggestions Brentr. Great points all around. I have a 32x15 covered lanai off the future pool deck that's been wired and plumbed for an outdoor kitchen - its also pre-wired for 4 speakers and TV so I'm good on that front. Will be building the kitchen as part of the project...

    Thanks! Believe me I know about the jets. Didn't want them at all but the Mrs insisted after I killed her fire bowl ideas. Was planning for just planters on the columns. I suspect the jets will run a little after the pools done, when the novelty wears off for her I'll just shut off the valve...

    Nice ;). The idea initially was to have two really nice planters on the columns. Then the whole water bowl thing started last night. Waiting for PB to tell me how much. My guess is 5k considering the grand effects bowls which he uses start around 1.5k each for the bowls alone. Wow thats a...

    Thanks for taking the time to look it over Kim. Wife wants the deck jets. I didn't see the value, but she really likes the idea so I said whatever since they are cheap. Pool builder sided with her since so I was outnumbered. I agree with you, will be a cool trick for a while after which...

    Second, settled with a pool builder I am very happy with. Designs attached and equipment below. Any suggestions or recommendations before I proceed? Wife is pushing for two water bowls sitting on top of the two columns. I think it would look great but my budget doesn't agree. Already...

    Updates: First I would like to share my question list that used to evaluate builders. Someone else posted a list containing those questions somewhere here and I just prettied it up for anyone to use as necessary.

    Thanks for chipping in tommy. Landmark, Ultra Custom, Natural Springs. Still waiting on multiple quotes. Must tell you I think the electric cost is absurd too. I had a 120/30AMP service put in with construction at the planned location of the equipment pad. There's also a 240/50AMP service...

    Congrats! I hope it all goes well. Still waiting on three quotes. Never called Olympus though. Maybe I should.

    Awesome thanks for the feedback. I did specifically say neverlube or similar but you're right not in the quote. Given Ninjanurse's similar experience above I think I'll move on.
