A majority of people that decide to add a pool to their property’s amenities don’t understand the time that’s actually required to install a swimming pool. Each pool construction project is different with its own set of variables. The installer’s workload may be especially heavy or ground-related issues may arise, but a total time estimate is generally in the vicinity of 6-10 weeks.
Pool construction is a multi-step process. They must be installed to a specified set of criteria and permits must be obtained. Excavations will be part of the process and care will be required to avoid utility lines. The process begins by selecting a company that specializes in pool installations and talking with a designer.
The designer will make a physical visit to the property and examine the location where clients want their pool. He or she will discuss the details of what the client envision, make suggestions, and be able to assess the area for potential problems. When the details have been settled, it can take one to two weeks for the designer to present individuals with a rendering of how the completed project will look.
Securing the appropriate permits can be a tricky process. Some cities approve permits quickly if they’ve worked with the company before and they have an impeccable record. Other governmental units may require multiple approvals by the city’s engineer, appearing before a planning board, and obtaining input from neighbors. It can take a week or two, but in some instances it can take up to six months.
Jobs are completed in the order in which they’re received and a highly skilled and reputable builder often has a backlog of projects. This is especially true at certain times of the year. It may take one to four weeks from the time permits are approved until excavation begins. Add another week or two for installation of plumbing, electrical, and any special features such as lights and stereo systems.
A pool can be installed and have water in it in as little as two to seven days after excavation begins. Most problems arise from the construction of the patio area surrounding the pool. The hole around the pool must be filled and given time to settle to adequately support the patio. It can take one to four weeks for this step.
It may seem like forever from the time individuals begin the pool process to its completion since every pool installation project has a set of variables. When individuals are enjoying their new swimming pool and sipping cool drinks at poolside during the hottest part of the year, it will be well worth the wait.
