New Pool Build In Tx Please Advise Proposal Included

2 posts in this topic

I am currently in Afghanistan and in the process of selecting a pool builder upon my return home for my new home in San Antonio, I already have narrowed my selection to the best two builders in town which are Blue Haven Pools and Gary Pools. Below is a proposal from Blue Haven Pools, this will be my first pool and I do not have much experience only what I have learned in this forum, I will appreciate any assistance I can get that will help me make the right choice. I have a $25,000 to low $30,000 budget. I am looking for reliable energy efficient equipment, also equipment that will offer the less cost to operate and maintain. Also I am interested on the Salt system. How does this proposal looks for you if you were getting this exact set up? Anything missing or needs to be added? This pool will have 3 water falls on one side. I have pics of the design that I can email anyone interested on helping us a little more, please let me know. Thanks to everyone in advance!

GT95, I am also in San Antonio and am having my pool built at this time by

Blue Haven. We also looked at Gary and Keith Zars. BH has excavated,

shot gunite, completed flagstone coping, and completed the deck,

tomorrow (17 Aug) they hook up all electrical and

Monday they will plaster and acid wash. They have done a great job.

I know you have a lot of questions just like I did when I started. By the way

I'm retired AF and I have a daughter in Afghanistan. Whatever, questions

you have don't hesitate to e-mail me (mersin99@aol.com).

Be safe and thank for your service.
