Build Your Dream Pool

How Long It Takes To Build A Pool

News March 11, 2016

One of the most common questions we receive from soon-to-be pool owners is, �How long will it take to build my pool?”

Much like the question, �How much does a pool cost?� � it�s not easy to answer in a straight-forward manner. Since each of our swimming pools are unique (just like each of our amazing customers), the best we can do is give you a general idea of when your pool will be completed.

We typically tell our customers that it will take approximately 6-8 weeks to build their pool. This time frame does not necessarily include the time it will take for everything to be completed pre-construction (like the permits, HOA approvals, and financing), so if you�re trying to have your pool swim-ready for a particular event, we suggest you start the buying and building process early. For more information on when you should buy a pool, read our previous blog: �When is the best time to buy a pool?�Keep in mind, your pool is unique and may take a longer (or shorter) time to build than your neighbor�s pool may have.

The length of time it takes to build a pool is also affected by weather conditions. For example, when it rains, we lose 2-3 days of work because the ground stays wet. Also, our crews cannot work in freezing temperatures.

Also keep in mind that many people decide to build a pool in the Spring and Summer months, so because of the demand, you may have a delayed start time.
