Swimming is one of the most popular recreational activities in the world, particularly if you live in an area with some of the more hotter summer temperatures. Installing a pool is a great idea for those looking for ways to cool down, and they have multiple benefits including having fun, exercising and entertaining family and friends. 

However, there are some factors that can turn your pool building experience into a nightmare which is why using custom pool builders is a great option. 

We’ve put together some tips for a hassle-free pool install. 

Search Pool Contractors for the Type of Pool You Want

Most homeowners will have an idea of the pool they want to install, so it’s a matter of researching quality custom pool builders who have designed and built pools similar previously. If you aren’t quite sure what you want, spending some time researching pool designs and trends, as well as the various options available when it comes to water types and filtration systems is a great idea. A quality custom pool builder will be able to sit with you and work through these areas. 

Request Referrals

When you are spending so much money on installing a pool, requesting referrals is important. If you can, meet with previous customers, take a look at their pool designs, and ask them about their experience during the entire pool-building process. Ask questions of the pool builder on how many pools of similar style they have built previously and any difficulties that normally arise. 

Get Everything in Writing

It’s important to get everything in writing. Dealing with custom pool builders is different to dealing with standard pool builds – there’s going to be different items included, different features, sometimes speciality products. Written proof of description of service, payment terms, warranties and everything else you need to know including deadlines and responsibilities of all parties should be documented very early on in the process. 

Check for Certifications and Licenses

Good quality custom pool builders will have up-to-date licenses and certifications and will happily produce these upone asking. Talk to them about their staff and the qualifications and experience of those who will be working on your pool. 

Try Visiting a Pool Store

It may seem like a funny step but take a visit to your local pool supplies stores and see if they have anyone they recommend. Many stores will have contacts for custom pool builders which will give you a great place to start.
