Great pool good cost. 3-16-13 Called Desert Springs Pools for quote on 3-28-13The first available day to come calmly to our house for an initial quote wasn't until March 28. 3-28-13 The pool designer ended up being about an hour or so belated but called to explain at that time the visit ended up being scheduled. 4-2-13 Met at their design center to see virtual styles . We were given a quote much like blue haven swimming pools and classic pools nonetheless they were offering us MORE. (we'd also known as completely status pools but the owner took fourteen days for returning to us and we also had gotten 3 quotes and currently signed with Desert Springs.) We liked Desert Springs design the greatest and were getting much more decking and a 83 perimeter pool which was 476 sq ft total. It was larger pool compared to other quotes. Desert Springs began with a 40k price and dropped it down to 33k with regards to incentives. We performed a similar share using them last year for 25k and surely could get a deeper rebate on this pool which introduced that$33k cost to $28k. I asked the pool designer to deliver me personally electronic copies of various display shots regarding the pool plan. I did not get these shots anytime soon together with to inquire of numerous times. The contract had an estimated START date of 4-22-13 and COMPLETION day of 5-30-13. Therefore it begins: 4-18-13 Sprayed out pool. 4-26-13 Bulldozer was delivered Friday. 4/29 & 4/30 Dug share Monday/Tuesday (Moving along in short order :) 5/1 to 5/3/13 gear, metallic, electric (Moving along rather quickly :) 5-16-13 Gunite (Moving along in short order :). I noticed two umbrella sleeves and an irrigation sleeve were lacking. I reminded the company as well as sprayed a reminder on the floor to be sure these were included also to prevent a mistake. I became maybe not home during all the pool construction. 5-18-13 Tile (Felt like a long delay time for next step) 5-31-13 Concrete decking 6-10-13 cool deck 6-12-13 block wall. (Block wall surface men noticed a blunder, the organization was going to install my old gate instead of the rv gates in contract, this was corrected before blunder ended up being made, almost instantly. 6-13-13 gate part 1 6-14-13 gate part 2 6-18-13inspection 6-19-13 pool cleanse 6-20-13 plaster 6-22-13 start up conclusion day had been 3 months more than anticipated but pretty near, Bummer, your fashion designer was flakey this time around. This is actually the situation with him. Delivered text to designer on 4-22-13 for pics of pool. No response. Remaining a voicemail asking a couple of days later on. On 5-21-13 I inquired again and was just a little snippy and finally got the pictures that I initially asked for on 4-2-13 on 5-22-13. I could not necessarily get assistance from the designer once pool docs were signed. Several other individuals assisted me personally within the tv show room with tile and decking. Some were helpful others not so helpful. If you're inexperienced with design and pools I HIGHLY advise making the fashion designer allow you to select you tile, decking, plaster/pebbletek, and cool decking before you decide to also chat rates. Then talk cost and sign docs. There is absolutely no explanation in order to make numerous trips right down to select all of that out later on plus they are so busy its challenging come on design assistance later in the future. Terri, who does scheduling is quite helpful and can also text back-and-forth.
