I live near Tucson and plan to put in a pool this coming winter (figure February/March). My install will include:
Running a water line about 20 feet (underground)
Running electric about the same distance, also underground
Installing the pool
Installing a solar heater (water flow through powered by the filter pump)
Installing a water cooler (same as the solar heater only the coils will be buried underground to cool the water)
Building a 400 square foot redwood deck
Interested? Figure either a 20 foot round or 11 by 20 oval.
It might be hard to find people that are experts in all these areas. You might be better off to separate it into multiple contractors. I could give you a professional pool installation and possible subs for electrical and the deck. The heater and cooler should be done by local contractors.
