Blog | Pool construction and what to expect.

Okay you got your estimates and decided on a pool builder. Signed your contract with your chosen pool contractor. You and your family are all excited and ready to get going! Now what?

First you should get an idea of when the pool company is going to start construction. Then usually in order to build your pool you will need a permit from the city you live in. Ask your builder if he is going to get the permit or if you need to.

After your permit has been applied for your yard will need to be checked for location of underground utilities. There should be a utility locating company in your town. If you can't find what company that is, call one of your utility companies and ask them who locates underground utilities in your area.

After your permit is issued and utilities are located you are ready to start construction. Now where is your pool man?

Most pool companies have limited resources to build swimming pools. So he probably is working on other pools that are ahead of yours in his pipeline of projects.

If your pool builder is actually a pool contractor he usually can start right away. You may be asking yourself "Whats the difference?" The difference is some pool companies have employees that actually build the pool and some companies do not have employees. The pool contractor has a list of sub-contractors that he calls for each phase of the pool construction. Typically pool contractors can start sooner and finish sooner. The down side to them is they usually build a large number of pools and that means the supervision is usually not as good as it should be.

Now your awesome pool guy is ready to start your pool. What happens now? Click the link below for our previous article on phases of pool construction.
