    Phoenix/Anthem meeting with pool builders but considering OB

    That is what happened to me, i got quotes from multiple builders and it was too high. I decided on OB and realized after the fact i didn’t save much money on the pool. Now on the landscape and hardscape part i saved a lot. If i was doing it again i would ask a pool builder to do the pool part...

    Phoenix/Anthem meeting with pool builders but considering OB

    I just finished OB here in Phoenix and i can tell you i will never do it again. It took a very long time and when you have issues with subs (and you will have) you have no way of fixing them without paying extra. Per example my excavator forgot to dig for my lights and rebar came and did rebar...

    Planning a new pool and backyard build, Phoenix, AZ

    I figured it out. The plumber rough plumb it first. Then after shotcrete is done the coping people will elbow it under the coping. Then start up crew will install the aerator.

    The plumber did rough plumbed it all the way to the spot in needs to be at. Shotcrate created a groove for it. Now, who does the finishing work on it? e.g. running it in the groove? what do they attached at the end to spray?

    Planning a new pool and backyard build, Phoenix, AZ

    For who doesn't know, i used a service to get design, engineering, permitting and contacts to subs. I believe now a General contractor would have done this cheaper than what i am getting it for. If you know a general contractor you trust run your plans by them first before you start the process...
