Swimming Pool Construction
Below are our most frequently asked questions regarding our swimming pool construction process. If you have any questions you don’t see here. Please get in touch. We’re happy to help with any additional questions you may have.
A custom pool is a pool built to fit your backyard. We don’t offer pre-fabricated or base model pools. All the selections from plaster, to wall tile to decking is custom selected by you. Each pool we design is different based on the needs of our clients.
Because our pools are all custom designed to fit your backyard and needs specifically, there is not a base price for a pool. A standard size pool and spa combo will generally run between $80-95,000. We do offer free estimates so you can get a full design and price without any obligations to buy.
Every pool build time can differ depending on a variety of factors like:
- Size of the project – The larger the project, the longer it can take to build. If you have other outdoor living elements incorporated into your project, like an outdoor kitchen, that can also extend your build time.
- Permitting – If you project requires a City permit, the build time can take longer because of inspections required during the build.
- Weather – Mother Nature plays a huge role in the length of time it takes to build a pool. Dry weather means shorter build times. Rain of course can sometimes cause delays in your build.
It generally takes anywhere from 4-8 weeks to complete a pool from the markings to the finishing touches.
The construction process is made up of several steps or segments to properly install your swimming pool. We have compiled all you need to know about the build in our Construction Process Guide. Click here to check out the process.
Most neighborhoods have HOA guidelines and requirements on installing swimming pools. Here at Suncor Outdoors, we strive to make it an easy submission process by putting together your HOA application packet for your to submit. Each HOA application packet includes:
- Completed HOA application form
- Property survey with swimming pool overlay
- 2D pool drawing with all required dimensions
- Photos of project
While we don’t offer in-house financing, we do have several lenders who can help. We have lenders who can help with home equity loans and lines of credit, as well as unsecured pools up to $100,000. Click here to view our financing partners.
A deposit of $1,000 will be collected at the time of contract signing. This deposit secures your start time for your project.
When construction begins, we have a payment schedule for each step of the build. A typical payment schedule would be due at dig, due at gunite, options payment, due at deck, and the final check is due at plaster.
Prior to digging, we follow the guidelines of Texas811 to know where and what we are digging. We also contact a private locate company to mark any lines that may need to be moved during the building process. We do our best to ensure no utilities will be disrupted during the process. However; sometimes utility lines can be cut, causing disruption. In the case this occurs, we will ensure the utilities are restored as quickly as possible.
At the completion of the building process you will be provided with a “Pool School”. Pool school is a process you will walk through once the equipment is hooked up. During pool school you will learn about your equipment and your app to control your pool features.
During the initial startup of the pool, we will provide chemicals. After 10 days, you will be required to maintain your pool. We recommend taking a water sample to your local pool store so they can guide you on what chemicals to add to the pool to balance the water chemistry. It is important to learn water chemistry when you have never had a pool, as you will need to ensure it remains in balance weekly.
