Here are some other items to consider when you choose a pool builder:

  1. Find a pool contractor with whom it have a consultation with. The pool contractor will come to your home and look at your landscaping and where you want to place the pool. During the construction consultation phase you will determine the size and shape of the pool. The contractor will determine whether he can get the necessary heavy equipment into the backyard and the two of you will begin discussions on the project.
  2. You may have a pool design in mind before you meet with your potential pool contractors and it is good to let him know what you’re hoping for so he can let you know whether you have the yard space to accommodate it. A pool contractor will also give you an idea of what the finished project will look like and might even offer a bird’s eye view of the home and yard so you can visualise the finished project.
  3. After you’ve hired a pool contractor and made the decisions on the type and size of the pool and its construction material your contractor will begin excavating the area where the pool will be installed. Plumbing and electricity will be run and you can anticipate having inspections performed by local zoning and code enforcement officers throughout the project.
  4. After the pool has been completely constructed and any pool accessories installed, you will fill the swimming pool — either by buying water and having it trucked in or by filling it with a hose at the house. Once the pool is full, you will need to have the water chemicals added and the water balanced to assure the water is free of bacteria and is ready for use.
  5. Don’t forget to plan for swimming pool upkeep and maintenance when you are planning the budget for your swimming pool project. Whether you plan to service and maintain the pool on your own or hire a professional, experienced swimming pool service contractor, ongoing maintenance and an increase in utility bills should be budgeted for as it is part of the entire project.
