First thing, get several price quotes from at least 3 pool companies. You often get a better offer if the pool company uses their regular aluminum enclosure people than if you go trying to find separate contractors.
Also, even do upfront cost will be 1,000 to 1,500 more to have a Salt System (instead of a chlorine system) pool, go ahead and do it. It will pay for itself in savings and in ease of care in about a year....buying chlorine tablets gets expensive fast.
A basic pool will start at about 20K with screen, an average pool will be in the 25K range. We were very satisfied with Blue Haven Pools. Dixie pools did an awesome presentation also but we went with the other company. Were not impressed with Holland pools, even thought many builders use them...
