Recommendation for an in ground pool company
We are looking at getting an in ground pool put in and would like any recommendations for a company? We have been in touch with Freedom pools and they have qouted $27-28 for a small 6.5-8.5 pool (which did inc the coping and solar heating)this seems rather expensive to me?
Any help much appreciated
We got ours from adelaide pool and spa, and would recommend them sort of .....but would severley warn you not to get pool lights.....ours have rusted after only a few months.
PM me for more details, I will go into more that way might get in trouble on here!!!

As far as lights go, just go for plastic.
What type of inground would you recommend? conrete or the plastic preformed ones? I have been looking at a few (for when i get there) but don't know the average costs of either.
Personaly i would go for preformed fibreglass and if i had heaps of cash a tiled one.

It really is your choice.
With concrete at least you have the choice of any shape you want.
With fibre glass you are limited to the range they produce from moulds - not saying that's a bad thing.
$27 - 28 seems a little on the high side $22-23 should be more like it.I would haggle a little and try and get some extras thrown in.Knowing what to ask for is the key.Try having a separate pump with thermostat for the solar heating for a start.Pool cover thrown in as well (saves water and keeps heat in).Deffo play one against the other as I'm sure not as many pools are been built now.;)
I think $27 was our original quote with coping done, 8x4 fibre glass, including pool cover, pump and solar heating. Be careful with your dumpiong costs, we saw how many 10 ton truck left so we knew how much they dumped, didnt stop them trying to charge more dump fees!!! We asked to see the wiegh bill, when they couldnt produce it we didnt pay the extra.
Thanx sarah - they are doing our pool - so will keep an eye out!
