How much does a new pool cost?

The cost of a new pool varies based on the size of the project, the features included, existing site conditions, and more. On average a standard pool can range from $45,000 to $75,000 or more depending on the scope of work. You can schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our experienced designers to explore your options and determine the cost of your pool project.

Do you take care of the permitting for my project?

Yes! Our dedicated Processing Department not only takes care of pulling the permits for your project, but also professionally drafts the construction plans, obtains professional engineering, and provides you with a plan packet to assist with HOA approval.

Are there codes and requirements I should consider when designing and building a pool?

Every city has different building codes your pool must abide by for us to obtain a permit. They also have varying barrier and child safety requirements that must be followed for your project to pass city inspections and ensure pool safety. Your designer will assist you in identifying your city’s specific rules and requirements. It’s also important to consider your individual HOA requirements when designing your new backyard.

How long does the pool building process take?

The length of the pool building process varies based on several factors, your jurisdiction, the scope of work, and even weather conditions. The time it takes for us to obtain your permit depends on your jurisdiction, some process permit applications in a week, others can exceed 6 weeks. From excavation, the average standard pool is completed within 9-12 weeks. Projects with a larger scope of work and more features will take more time.
