Help need Swimming Pool Advice
Live in Morris County, NJ. Have five kids ages 1-9 and am doing research on installing in-ground pool probably around 500-600 sq. feet. Our lot is 5 acres but mostly wooded,sloped and mosquito infested. Have gotten estimates from 5 pool companies - Anthony and Sylvan, National, Posiden, Creative, Waterworld Pools.com.
Now I am totally confused.
Gunite vs. vinyl liner vs. fiberglass?
Heat pump vs. gas?
cartridge vs. DE?
Paver deck vs. concrete?
Every company has a long list of reasons why their competitors are crooks, why their type of pool or filter is best.
We are basically looking for the lowest maintenance way to have a useable backyard space for our kids to play safely.
