Buying factory direct
Came across a website 'Swimming pool now' who sell fiberglass pools direct from multiple manafacturers. Noticed that they sell the model that we want from Leisure Pools here in central Texas. They also have a 'name your price' option which is set up as a three way negotiation between the buyer, swimming pool now and the manafacturer.
We are still looking at pool companies to do the install but were wondering how buying the shell would change the dynamics of the whole transaction. Could the pool builder purchase it even cheaper and would they even want to get involved if we purchased the shell? We'd be wanting a deck and outdoor kitchen too so it wouldn't just be the pool. Any thoughts about going this route?
