New Inground Pool - Built in Massachusetts
I've been researching this site for a while now and weÃ¯Â¿Â½re getting ready to sign a contract with a pool company and trying to get a good grasp on budgeting. Right now, we have the below list of options we are interested in going with our selected pool company:
18Ã¯Â¿Â½x36Ã¯Â¿Â½ Permacrete Rectangle w/1 Roman End (w/a possible upgrade charge for freeform)
Concrete Walls & Bottom
2 Bottom Main Drains
8Ã¯Â¿Â½ Wide Concrete Stairs
Built-In Swim Out
Mineral Springs Chlorine Generator
750 sq. ft. Stamped Concrete Decking
ColorLogic 12v Underwater Light
28 Mil Liner
1 Stair Jet
Stainless Steel Handrail (Ladder also included)
Hayward 1.0 H.P. Super Pump
Safety Line & Floats
Complete Project Management
We have an existing 4Ã¯Â¿Â½ vinyl fence that does not meet pool code so we are planning right now to knock down part of it and enclose the pool in itÃ¯Â¿Â½s own chainlink or aluminium fence that meets code.
After pricing everything out, we decided to hold of purchasing the dolphin pool vacuum and winter safety cover until we have a better idea of the overall cost of the project.
Can anyone out there give me any advice on my list of specÃ¯Â¿Â½s or tell me any "gotchas" that might arise. I know itÃ¯Â¿Â½s hard to know whatÃ¯Â¿Â½s going to happen during excavation until it happens. They believe we have very good soil for backfill.
Thanks for any input.
