When looking to put in a new pool one of the main questions we get is, “When should I start planning my pool installation?” Our answer—right away. There are several steps involved in getting that new pool to completion. Some of those tasks are things like designing your pool, getting your permits, and having the excavation done. But one thing that you don’t have to wait on is planning your pool build.

To make things easier, we’ll outline some of the main things that you can be doing to plan your pool build. When you’re ready, contact us so that we can help you get started with your pool installation.

How Do I Start Planning My Pool Installation?

The best way to start is to talk to friends that own a pool and look at websites like houzz, Instagram, etc. for inspiration. Once you have a basic idea of what you want, contact several contractors to set up a time to speak to them about the project. While we recommend speaking to multiple contractors, it rarely is a good idea to work with more than 3 or 4 for a bid. Spend time researching them, review their projects, and focus on the best fit for you and your family. 

What you can expect to get out of your meeting with your pool contractor is:

  • A pool installation timeline
  • Tips from experience for the best location for your pool
  • A general overview of the design of your pool
  • The costs associated with your pool build
  • Warranty terms and items that are included in the build
