1. Will a pool affect the value of my home?

Some studies show that a pool can increase the value from 7%- 15%.

2. What should I look for in my pool builder?

The company’s reputation is important. Get references. Talk to some of their customers.

Also ask:

  • How long have they been in business?
  • How many pools have they built?
  • Will I get a clear, precise, written estimate?
  • Is there are guarantee or warranty?

3. What are the factors that affect my total cost?

  • Permits
  • Demolition
  • Excavation
  • Pool structure
  • Hardscape – permanent fixtures like deck or patio
  • Extras – spa, waterfall,
  • Landscape - plants, planters

4. Why is there so much variation in pool estimates?

  • The quality of materials used can greatly affect prices.
  • Shoddy workmanship can save money on the front end but you will always get you what you pay for in the end.
  • There is no substitute for Craftsmanship, Expertise, and Experience.

5. How much work is there in maintaining a pool?

Keeping your pool clean is easier now due to technological advances and automation of most of the pool chores.

  • Automated chemical testing
  • Automatic pool cleaners
  • Sanitizing devises
  • Automated heating
  • Pre-programmed filtration
