Help me define my pool needs (MA)
This is my first pool and I just received a quote for 80K if I get all of the stuff they included as options. I read a thread from a while back where someone said you should tell them what you want and then have them quote that. SO. I'm wondering if someone with pool expertise can help me define that? Below is the style I want and here are the details I do know I want. We're on the North Shore of Mass in case that matters.
Shallow end at 3' and deep end at 8.5'
Stairs running the width or the shallow end
Bench running width of deep end.
2-3' coping on the edge - does the pool company have to do this or can my mason?
Lights - how many? What type/brand?
Cleaning system. Again - what type/brand?
I don't want the retractable cover. Code requires a fence and at 12-16K I don't think it's worth it.
What am I missing and any input on the above in case I have something wrong is so appreciated!!
