When is the best time to install an inground swimming pool?
Any time is a terrific time to build, although a lot of people definitely believe that spring and summer are the ideal seasons. Since it is the busiest time of year, this isn’t always the case. We believe that the fall is the best time to start a construction project because your pool will be done long before the following spring, allowing you to enjoy your brand-new pool for a full season. Additionally, there are fewer delays in the fall and winter because the weather is more predictable, and town building inspectors are less busy for necessary inspections.
We’ve been known to dig pools in the snow merely to get a head start and provide our clients with a complete season. The sight of water in your pool while enjoying the wonderful weather is far more pleasant than watching it be constructed. As a result, you can start using your new pool at any time, even in the fall or winter. It really depends on how quickly you want to use your new pool.
How much does an inground pool cost?
Since every pool is specifically created for each customer, there is no simple answer to this question. The cost of the project is significantly influenced by a number of variables, such as the site’s characteristics, the pool’s features, and the design.
A typical pool costs starts in at $70,000 and $80,000 with decking and several accessories. Concrete pools start in on the highest end of this range.
How long does a pool take to install?
After obtaining the required pool permits, the majority of projects are typically finished in 4 to 6 weeks. Compared to our concrete pools, which take more like 5-7 weeks to complete, vinyl-lined swimming pools typically take 3-5 weeks. If there are delays past these deadlines, they are typically caused by factors outside our control—weather being the main one. The conclusion of site inspections may also contribute to delays. A building permit is required for all swimming pools.
Do I need regular weekly pool cleaning services?
Chlorine rapidly decreases in warmer climates with more swimming activity. Algae must be kept at bay with routine service and maintenance, which includes brushing and vacuuming. Always keep in mind that just because a pool appears clear, it may not actually be clean or suitable for swimming.

Can I add the same level of chemicals to my pool each time?
No, adding chemicals to your pool doesn’t have a straightforward formula. There are many variables, including environmental, biological, chemical, and physical ones. Each swimming pool is distinct and needs a varied quantity of chemicals.
Why does my chemical budget fluctuate each month?
You may be using more chemicals this month than the previous month for a variety of reasons, including increased pool use and rising pool water temperature. Weather and several other environmental and physical elements that affect chemical use are other prevalent considerations.
Why do I have to clean and change out filters?
Your system’s efficiency can be affected by dirt, debris, and other impurities, including iron, phosphates, and calcium. They result in an increase in pump pressure, which prevents optimal performance and adds to the equipment’s wear and tear. This can be avoided by routinely maintaining and cleaning your cartridge filter.
Why is my water level going down?
At various periods of the year, evaporation can reach 1/4″ or higher. The use of the pool and the water’s temperature are factors. A pool leak may be indicated by a significant loss of water.
How soon can I use my pool after opening it for the season?
When your pool is clean, the water is balanced, and it is warm enough to swim in, you may use it.
