You have many options when it comes to getting the swimming pool you have in mind, so be sure to consult with our experts to make your dream a reality. Check out the answers to these custom pool questions and be sure to contact us if you're ready to get started or have additional questions.
How Long Does it Take to Build My Pool?
The amount of time it takes to build your pool depends on a variety of factors. Since all our swimming pools are custom, no two builds are the same. The time from when you contact us to your first swim depends on the size, features, and depth of your pool. A good rule of thumb is to expect your in-ground pool to be ready in 60 to 90 days. Our team prioritizes communication, so you'll be informed about where we are in the process and the expected completion date. That's important to remember if you're planning on having your new pool ready for summer.
Can I Have a Pool in My Backyard?
The great thing about custom swimming pools is that they can be just about any size. If you have a huge yard, we can create a humungous pool in addition to extra features like a spa, water feature, outdoor deck, and more. If your backyard isn't so big, we can design a more modest swimming pool for you. Other important factors to consider include the slope of your yard and access to it. You'll also need to check HOA restrictions as well as potential setbacks and easements. Our team would be happy to help ensure you have all your bases covered!
What Kind of Equipment & Maintenance Will I Need?
Once you have your dream pool, you'll need some equipment to keep it clean and safe. A pump and filter will be necessary to keep your swimming pool clean and clear. You'll also need to chlorinate your pool to keep it sanitary. A pool heater can also extend the life of your swimming season. Our team will be sure to go over all your options with you and ensure you have everything you need to enjoy your new pool.
Do I Need a Pool Heater in Central Florida?
Living in the Greater Orlando area means enjoying beautiful weather, but we all know the winters do still get cold. Many area residents can enjoy their pools during the spring and fall, but if you truly want a year-round swimming season, you'll need a pool heater. Our team will help you choose from options, including a gas heater, electric heat pump, solar heater, or pool cover.
Do I Need a Fence Around My Pool?
While adding a custom swimming pool to your home is a luxury, it also comes with added responsibility. If you have children or pets, a safety barrier like a fence should be considered. Our team will help you understand the benefits of a pool fence, as well as the Florida swimming pool safety barrier laws.
Do You Offer Anything Besides Just Pools?
Yes. In addition to beautiful and luxurious custom swimming pools, our experienced team can also construct spas, water features, pool decks, lighting, and outdoor kitchens for your backyard. There's no job too big or too small for us.
Can I Afford a Custom Swimming Pool?
Our team would be happy to discuss your budget with you to determine if a new pool is realistic. Because all our swimming pools are custom, we can work with your budget and help you find an option that will work for you. We'd be happy to help you determine your custom swimming pool cost, so contact us today.
Why Should I Consider a Custom Swimming Pool?
If you live in the Orlando area and you don't already have a pool, it's time to consider one. Swimming pools are tons of fun for the entire family! Whether the kids like splashing around or the adults are looking to get some exercise, pools offer numerous benefits.
