My problem is that it was never explained to me. When I walked the yard with the PB and we discussed the distance from my panel to the pool pad, there was never any discussion about - well, you have 3 lights that are each 50' away plus the distance from the house to the pad - you're going to need 400' of electrical run. The contract even says from the owners panel - doesn't say where to and my assumption was to the pool pad. The bonding loop was included in the pricing and not extra.Our PB did. something similar with the electrical and gas contract. We got a certain number of feet included and then it was x/ft after that. It did not exclude filling the trench, which seems especially chintzy. In our case the crew who did the skimmers and pipes are employees of the PB. The electricians are subs who work nearly exclusively for the PB. I think that is where the difference is in their minds.

My PB did everything in house except the electric. They also told me I got something like 200 or 150 feet included and it was only after many questions I finally discovered that they included distance from lights to panel and not just the distance from panel to my Pad.
Then right before the electrician came he sent me a contract that referenced an additional fee if he had to go under a patio.
My sense is that if you were misled it was probably intentional. He might not have deliberately lied to you, but likely knew you misunderstood and made no attempt to clarify.
