Let me know what ya'll think of the pool quote below Likes, dislikes anything I should add? We like the builder and quote as they are willing to take care of everything landscaping and sprinklers. . I will be requesting to add another light. Backyard is limited in space long, but not very wide and sprinkler system will need to be relocated. I will be inquiring about plug in robot cleaner and Pebble tech vs. wanna be pebble tech finish.

Total Co$t is below. I'm in Houston Texas
