If you’re thinking about building a pool, spring is the perfect time to do it. It’s important, however, to take into account how long it takes to build a pool. You might be wondering when is the best time to contact a professional pool builder and begin the process. The answer is now. As the weather warms and your desire for a swimming pool grows, you’ll be more frustrated with the extensive construction process the longer you wait. On average, swimming pool installation takes around 8 to 12 weeks, but can vary greatly depending on your circumstances. So the sooner you start, the sooner you can enjoy your amazing new swimming pool.
Designing & Permitting
This part of the process takes around 1 to 6 weeks.
The design phase begins with a visit to your builder. Depending on your wants and needs, this can go really quickly or it can take a while to get it just right.
Permitting relies on a lot of outside factors that will vary greatly on how long they take. Some municipalities will have your permit approved within a week, while others will require several forms and meetings with the potential of taking months to complete.
Construction & Installation
This part of the process takes around 3 to 6 weeks.
In most cases, construction and installation will be the most time-consuming part of getting your new pool. The steps involved in this process include excavation, plumbing, and electrical, followed by the installation of your pool’s shell. A concrete pool will have to be poured while fiberglass and similar pools will have the shell delivered and dropped into the excavated site.
If you don’t have any landscaping or hardscaping to install, this step will also involve post-installation clean-up and finishing touches to make sure your pool is ready to go.
Landscaping & Hardscaping
This part of the process takes around 1 to 4 weeks.
Many pool installations will be accompanied by landscaping and hardscaping to create a cohesive pool area that can easily be fenced in and decorated. Wood decking, stone patios, and beautiful plants and bushes are installed during this phase to really bring your pool area to life. This can also include some pool additions such as laminar jets and plumbed statues. It entends installation, but the finished product will make it worth the wait.
