Make next summer the season you luxuriate and relax by your own Crystal Pool. It happens with planning and preparation, adequate time set aside and an expert team to guide you. Find our guide to building your dream pool below and be on the way to enjoying your completed pool sooner.
What’s The Process Of Building A Crystal Pool?
First, consider the building process. There’s a helpful pool construction process map on our website. Keep in mind that this can take around 16 to 20 weeks, with variables for a longer or shorter time depending on a wide range of factors, such as:
- Weather, particularly rain
- Stock availability
- Speciality products
- Council approval (this varies depending on your local council, with some taking much longer than others)
- These factors can either increase or decrease the amount of time the overall swimming pool installation process will take.
When Is The Best Time To Build My Crystal Pool?
Crystal Pools has been operating since 1957. As a trusted swimming pool installation company we build pools throughout all times of the year, but our busiest period is frequently summer. Quality and control are among our biggest priorities, so we ensure each pool receives the dedication and attention required.
We recommend choosing to build earlier in the year, if possible, to account for the varying factors. If you want to enjoy your bespoke Crystal Pools installation by Christmas, you should have decided on a pool builder by June. After this, you should begin your contract by August at the latest. This time frame allows you to still make decisions without feeling under pressure. With an exciting new pool arriving at your place, you’ll likely be the next Christmas host (for better or for worse), in good time to get those invitations out.
How To Avoid The Rush To Get Your Swimming Pool Installation?
Once you’ve decided to have that dream pool installed, it’s helpful to have made all of your key decisions. Changing your mind is possible in the design phase, but can obviously add delay to the process. Here are a few ways to stay at the top of the list for your construction commencing, and to progress your completed swimming pool construction sooner.
Have A Clear Idea Of What You Want
If you’re considering having a pool installed, you’ll most likely be doing a whole lot of Pinteresting and searching online for ideas and inspiration. This is a great start to getting the process moving. Having a clear idea of what you want can certainly fast-track your design process.
When having a swimming pool installed, it’s not just about the pool shape and size itself. We will be there with advice to help you choose the particular style of pool that suits you, your home and your lifestyle. We also help you decide if you want pebbles or tiles or both? What colour you want to water to appear? What style of coping? The more information you have, the easier it is to come to decisions with surety. Afterall, we don’t want you to feel rushed. So before reaching out, we recommend that clients look through our gallery and select a few of your favourites to help narrow down the selection process and offer a good starting point.
Planning Is Key
As we mentioned earlier, the process of building a Crystal Pool is one that can take up to six months from the initial stages to completion, depending on the many factors we’ve listed. Being organised and setting time aside at the beginning to establish what you want not only influences time in the design phase, it can also give the Crystal Pool team and landscapers a helping hand in shortening your swimming pool installation times.
Onsite Property Assessment
To ensure we can bring your dream pool to life, we offer an onsite property assessment at the start. We come to you and discuss the following:
- The possible locations for the pools and the variables such as slope, light direction, etc.
- Existing services such as water, sewer and gas
- State and council regulations
- Budget range and how we can accommodate a pool to fit your budget
- The current aesthetic of the home and how we can create a pool to match
- Any practical and compliance challenges to functionality requirements
This is a no-cost service; we provide this so our team can discuss how our process can work and what we offer. Opting for an onsite property assessment earlier in the year (March-May) is a great way to then begin the design process within the first half of the year.
The Crystal Pools team is always here to help. While we understand that building an enduring concrete pool can be quite a process, the outcome is sure to add value to your home and create a space that gives you and your family a chance to make memories.
