What's it cost to build a pool?

Perhaps you’re a “do it your-selfer” and you want to know what it costs to build a pool. Is there such a thing as a “cheap pool”?

The simple answer is YES, there are plenty of cheap pools available today. Above ground pools can be installed by DIY’ers and depending on the size and materials, you could probably get one for a few thousand dollars.

As for in-ground pools, you can probably get a cheap pool if you’re a professional pool builder. Or you may hire a contractor who’ll build a pool for you for a nominal fee. Just remember the old adage: “You get what you pay for” because for this type of investment, it is not a good idea to cut corners to save money. If you think your pool was not built up to par, we do however fix cheap pools. 🙂

Ongoing maintenance for your swimming pool

Once your new pool has been chemically balanced and all plaster dust has been filtered out, you will want to establish a routine maintenance schedule to thoroughly enjoy your pool and protect your investment.

Once the pool is complete and the 30 day complimentary pool service is over, you can either maintain the pool yourself or contract with Pool Pros for monthly maintenance. It is very important that the pool chemicals be closely monitored to maintain the proper chlorine, acid, and pH levels.

Your heater, solar water heating system, cleaner, and filtering system should also be checked and maintained throughout the year.

Can Pool Pros handle my entire pool renovation project?

Pool Pros has the capability to manage, both by the utilization of its employees and by the selective use of other contractors, just about every facet of the pool renovation process.

We specialize in specific aspects of pool construction and when other areas of expertise are needed we rely on relationships built up over the last twenty plus years to supply the necessary services.

Pool Pros’ goal is to establish efficient integration of these services to provide you with a swift and professional pool remodel experience.

How long will it take to remodel my pool?

The length of time a pool will be under construction for renovation is directly related to the extent of the work we are performing.

Pools that are being refinished with plaster or Pebble can be operational in ten days or less.

Pools that require tile and coping or are being extensively remodeled require additional construction time.

Be assured that when a project commences, Pool Pros will make every effort to consistently move the job along and complete your project in a timely manner.

Pool start up procedure

Once your pool is full of water, it will require extra attention. A pool start up includes brushing, filtration, and chemical balancing. All of our renovations at Pool Pros come with complimentary 30 day pool service.

Additional guidelines to be followed during the start up period:

As plaster cures, especially during the first 30 days, it is important to remove plaster dust in a timely manner by brushing and to stabilize water chemistry in the pool. Since chemicals can have a significant impact upon the life of your plaster it is suggested that only persons trained in this area introduce chemicals to the pool.

A re-plastered pool must be brushed until there is no longer visible plaster dust churned up by the brushing. Inadequate brushing may result in the plaster dust becoming permanently affixed to the surface of the pool. Pebble pools surfaces require limited brushing.

Start the pool equipment once the pool has been filled. Run the filter 18 hours per day for at least a week subsequent to plaster. Make sure that there is main drain suction to filter the dust from suspension in the water. Monitor filter pressure as the filter may need cleaning during this period due to the accumulation of plaster dust. The filter can be set for normal operation with a Pebble pool surface.

Do not swim in the pool until there is no longer evidence of plaster dust in the water and chemicals have been balanced.

Do not use the pool sweep cleaner for at least ten days subsequent to the application of plaster or Pebble finish.

Do not turn on the heater for at least ten days and longer if the pool is not in chemical balance.
