We are thinking about getting a pool with cage built. I would like to get an idea of what prices people have been paying for an average 14 X 28? Are you happy with what you built or what would you do differently.

Thanks

the common consensus is around 25-30 thousand.
dependant factors - are you in a flood zone and need a stem wall -higher cost
what heating do you want ? - none cheapest, solar higher, electric higher still.
spec - lowest or highest

the 3 most mentioned companise are Tropical ,Casa and Popa (I think) we got prices from the first 2 (plus 2 others) and went with Casa. very happy with them. I am sure Harbor Hopper used Popa and was happy with them. I know 2 people who used Tropical and were genrally happy with them !! you take your choice.

We used Fulton. We got quotes from three contractors and all were in the same range. We chose Fulton because it seemed everyone recommended them. They did a great job and couldn't be happier.

I agree with Mr. Sunshine. There are several good pool companies in town. I'm partial to Jerry over at Casa Pools. Everyone I've sent them have been very satisfied

My GF wants a pool...I want a boat lift. I keep telling her it would be cheaper to just sell or rent our house and buy a new bigger house with a pool and boat lift already in place .

We used Grant Pools when we lived in North Port and were happy. And we used Fulton Pools in the home we live in now in Port Charlotte and were very happy. Fulton provided better customer service. We did get quotes from 3 different companies and they were all pretty much the same within a few hundred dollars. Have a few give you quotes and go with whoever you feel most comfortable with and provides you with the details you are looking for.

Pool +/- $30k. Boat lift +/- $2,500. Tell her she can have her pool if you get a lift AND a new boat. Fair's fair, right?
