Wife and I are at a spot where we're considering putting in a pool, which would be our first. We're planning on staying where we are for the foreseeable future, probably at least the next decade at a minimum. Perhaps it's being in the midst of the normal Texas summer which has given us the itch, but nevertheless it's something we think our family would use and enjoy and we're at a place financially where we feel comfortable spending the scratch.
Our backyard is average to small, but large enough to accommodate a decent sized pool. Anyone have any tips or thoughts about what we should look for or consider? For those of you who own one or have built one, anything you would have done differently or added? We're in the process of starting to get bids from several different companies both with a spa/hot tub and without. We're definitely cost conscious and not on an unlimited budget by any stretch, but okay with spending a little more for the right product. Any info or feedback is appreciated.
