Pool prices vary widely based on location. I’d recommend getting several quotes and speaking with several customers for each of the pool builders. For what it’s worth, that pool would likely be $10-$20k more in my neighborhood in Oklahoma City.

I agree with what RU4Cycling2 said, best way to judge is get multiple quotes. I would add, get them as similar as possible, meaning, don't change size or depth or anything major so you can compare apples to apples. I would review this one in detail, is it everything you want...chlorination system, number of lights, equipment size, number of skimmers, decking type, etc. then you'll be able to be more specific with the other PBs. Or you could just see what each PB recommends but it will be harder to compare to each other...but you can go back to them afterwards and ask for changes. Also ask what their payment schedule is when you meet with them and make sure you are ok with it...some front-load it way too much.

Hi there! New to the website. I came across your post as I’m looking for other DIY experiences in Vegas. I received bids from 2 contractors in Vegas recently and the one you received is not far off. I decided to go owner build and will be saving around 30%. Contact me if you want to discuss.
