South Texas pool cost sanity check
I am in South Texas and am currently getting quotes for a pool/spa built. The first official quote came in and I was dumb-founded. I have down a lot of research, compared pool prices with neighbors who built pools within the last two years and feel this particular PB is crazy. The attached picture is the design that we like (with some minor tweaks) and the details follow of the $140,000 pool (yes, 140K - that is not a typo).
Pool/Spa Size: 22'8" by 36' with 8x8 sunledge 637sqft, 109 ft perimeter
Spa: 40 sq ft with 1/3 cascade of leuder stone
Depth: 3' to 6'
Steel: 9" on center grade 60 1/2"
Thickness: 8 to 10" 4500PSI shotcrete wet mix
18" raised beam for ~ 25 feet with two 2" water sheers with stacked stone
Coping: Grey leuders
Tile: Basic tile
Decking: 1195 sq ft Sun Deck (#3 steel at 12" on center)
Pump: Jandy variable speed
Filter: Jandy DE Filter
Heater: Jandy 400,000 BTU
Cleaner: Polaris 3900 with 3/4 HP booster pump
3 Jandy LED pool lighting (2 pool, 1 spa)
Extras & Notes
Fire Pit in area of one of the patios
The decking is multi-level - the 1195 decking is on three different levels around the pool
Steps copped with leuders
Additional 87 linear feet of 18" wall around parts of the decking, faced with stacked stone (both sides) and coped with leuders
