Well, it's been a while since I was involved with you all (other place). Anyway, sold the house so had no pool, but NOW we got moved in the new house and are getting bids for pools. Last time I knew nothing and just had them build it. Luckily, he did it right and was a great guy so I was very happy. Anyway, I got a bid from one guy and it was higher than I thought (no big deal though). He kept going on and on about his parts being better. That's fine and I will pay for the better stuff, BUT I would like to know from you all here if his stuff is genuinely better and worth the price difference. They use a Gray Hydra Panel instead of the competition's Black Pacific Panel for the pool walls. Says he runs all 2" lines instead of 1.5". No 90 degree bends. He makes them out of 2 45 degree bends. Says he uses ALL Jandy Valves, not PVC ball valves.
My specs are:
16 x 32 Grecian (diving)
SWG (already have)
Pentair Challenger 1 HP (I thought the 3/4 would be enough)
Pentair FNS 48 DE Filter (multiport valve obviously)(I really want to try this DE thing)
Probably just gonna buy the Blue Pearl afterwards. (never really liked the pressure cleaners)
Any help that anyone could offer me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
