New Pool Buying Guide
Confidently start your new pool process with our 6-step New Pool Buyer Guide.
- Geometric shapes are great for people wanting a classic or contemporary look. They also work great for playing games or swimming laps.
- Free-form styles offer a more casual and natural look. They work well with waterfalls and boulders.
If you select pool builders who have a showroom, schedule a visit there. Often, these showrooms display model pools, finish samples, tile options and decking solutions.
Once you choose your select builder, share your inspirational photo book to provide a clear understanding of the environment you wish to create. In most cases, the pool builder will arrange for an on-site visit to your home to evaluate the space and take measurements.
After the site inspection, the pool builder will create a drawing of the pool design for your review. Once the design is finalized, you’ll need to choose the materials. Based on your selections, the builder will put together an estimate for your project. This estimate should include all labor and material costs including electrical, plumbing, excavating, equipment, tile, finish, etc. Many pool builders offer financing programs if needed.
Before signing on the dotted line, carefully review the following items for accuracy.
Your drawing should include exact dimensions, depth elevations, step and special feature placements, along with the pool’s specific position in your yard.
Make sure the details document exactly what you want. The specifications should include interior finish – brand type and color, equipment – brands and model numbers, plumbing details, special features – size and quantity of each, electrical and any other special options (landscaping, decking, etc.). If you want a real PebbleTec pool, get the finish brand name and color in writing on your contract.
Prior to construction, your pool builder will have to submit a building permit for approval. Afterwards, you should be given an installation schedule outlining excavation, plumbing and electrical, gunite, coping, decking, interior finish and start up. (Again, confirm that your finish type and color is in writing on this schedule.)
Once the pool is filled and the water chemistry is balanced, it will be time to celebrate the new addition. Throw a party and have fun. Don’t forget the toys, games, floats, patio furniture, etc. Accessorizing is half the fun!
