Very Nice Build, I am in Western MA and thinking about putting one in next year. Mind sharing about how much this cost?


 o
RE: New Pool Build Massachusetts

Including the cost of about 1100 sq ft of techo bloc (blu 60) pavers, about 75k.

RE: New Pool Build Massachusetts

Wow I expected it to be more. I was set on Steel or Polymer due to the Cold up here, but I might look into this option also.

It looks outstanding, very well done.

RE: New Pool Build Massachusetts

Very nice. I know you will enjoy it. How many months will you be able to enjoy the pool each year?

Your pool came out great. I love the shape of the deck and the pool! It is nice you were able to also put in a spa.

I am sure you are now enjoying it -- I am in NH, so I know the weather has been hot!

RE: New Pool Build Massachusetts

Thanks! This website was so helpful, I felt I should post the results. We are very happy with the pool and in this heatwave it has been a popular place!

Just curious I spent half the day today with a Gunite Company, they highly recommend the In Floor cleaning system, every pool they took me to had it.

They did say there are a regualr system and an advanced system that has its own pump, do you have a separate Pump? Also how are you liking the Gunite so far??

I love your pool, it is one that has me looking at Gunite now.

I have the Paramount PV3 system. There are 10 heads along the floor of the pool. Honestly, I'm not sure how I feel about the in floor system- we have a Polaris 280 which does most of the cleaning, I think the main benefit of the in floor system is to circulate heated water more evenly. If I had to do it again, I'm not sure I'd get it. I've heard it makes winterizing more costly and of course it provides more potential points of failure. Our in floor set up does not have a sep pump....it uses the 1.5 hp pump for the pool.

So far we have been very happy with our build. Hope this helps!

RE: New Pool Build Massachusetts

That helps a lot, thank you!!!

Again stunning pool, can not wait to see what you do with the Landscaping.

RE: New Pool Build Massachusetts

cambridgefarms, would you by chance be willing to share some of your quotes? Just thought I would ask :)


 o
RE: New Pool Build Massachusetts

Our quotes ranged from 75k - 110k. Included 1000 sq ft techo bloc pavers. Fence and water fall were extra.


 o
RE: New Pool Build Massachusetts

Love your pool! Do you mind sharing what your waterline tile is called and the manufacturer? I am trying to pick mine now and love how yours looks!
