Total Pool Project


And the renderings:

A few other notes:

- There are many more trees to the left of the of the pool when looking at the renderings.

- The fire pit is included in the quote.


1. Anything that jumps out to you that is wrong/worrisome/change/etc...?

2. Anything that I should include?

3. What can I do to reduce this project to under $40k? My immediate thought is to reduce the size of the tanning ledge.

Beautiful plans! I live in Richardson and am just beginning to get pool bids. May I ask what company this bid is from? I might like to get one from them, too. From the one bid I've gotten so far and the little I know about pricing in our area, yours looks to be a good value. Best of luck!

That is a fantastic quote. In Shreveport you only get about 500 sq ft of pool for that cost. If they have a good reputation ( good BBB score) I would stick with them. I'm gonna pay that much for a 520 sq ft pool with only one bench and on flat land. Almost identical plan, looking at your pics. I'm a little jealous. Good luck.

Go with a Pentair Legend pool sweep. It's the same price and just as good as a Polaris. You will get the three year warranty on the sweep also. Polaris only has a one year warranty.

Great price for all of that! I would probably use the Pentair Clean & Clear Plus Cartridge 520 filter for that size pool and I would also go with the Pentair Legend PLATINUM pool cleaner to get the 3 yrs warranty on it as well. reducing the size of the tanning ledge won't get you much of a price break. I would be sure you get a good sealant designed for salt water pools for your flagstone to avoid erosion. All in all, you are getting a lot of pool for the price!
