Frequently Asked Questions
Q? How long does it take to build a pool?
A. While each job is different, it generally takes about 30 to 60 days for construction.
Q? Once my pool is completed, will my utility bills go up a lot? What other monthly costs should I consider?
A. Each pool is different, and utility rates can vary greatly depending on your location and even the time of year. However, your electrical bill will go up about $40 $80 per month. Also, you can expect to spend about $20 $40 per month on chemicals. These costs vary based on the size of the pool, the temperature of the water, how much the pool is used, and other factors.
You should also plan on more costs associated with entertaining guests. Once your pool is complete your old friends will be coming out of the woodwork and youll meet neighbors you never know you had. Just make sure they bring some snacks and drinks too.
Q? Do I have to be home during construction?
A. There is no need for you to be home during construction, however, your input is needed from time to time. Over the years weve learned that getting input from the homeowner early and often is the best way to ensure a successful project, and a happy homeowner.
Q? I live on a hill, can you still build a pool in my yard?
A. Absolutely! Weve built pools with as much as a 20 foot elevation difference from one side to the other.
