Paperwork and Permits

There’s a lot of paperwork that happens behind the scenes of any home construction project, and pools are no exception. Once you’ve met with a designer, plans and blueprints are crafted for your specific project; no two projects are ever the same. Your contractor then has to draw up permits and submit the blueprints to your local authorities for approval. Unless you’re already familiar with construction site surveying and drafting, this can be a tedious process. Plans that are not up to par with city building codes are rejected, usually a without refund for filing fees, and it’s back to the drawing boards. Your pool builder will have an experienced team of surveyors, engineers, and designers handling the paperwork for your project so you don’t have to worry. Builders who are well established in your community will know exactly what your city officials want on their paperwork and will probably be able to get their permits approved faster.

Equipment and Construction

When it comes to the construction part of your project, your pool builder will bring in several large pieces of heavy equipment. To dig the hole for your pool, an excavator is usually used. Some builders own their own construction equipment while others rent from a third-party company. While you don’t necessarily need a special license to operate this equipment, most states require that operators take a safety course before they rent or buy heavy machinery. When you use a professional pool builder, you can rest assured that your engineers have met all the state and local safety requirements in addition to logging hours of supervised time behind the wheel of these machines. In addition to an excavator, a cement truck brings in tons of concrete ready to pour once the skeletal frame for your pool has been placed. If you were thinking about building your pool on your own, you’ll probably end up paying more in equipment rental fees and raw materials than a contractor would.

Safety and Professionalism

Finally, when you enlist the skills of a professional pool builder, you’re saving yourself a lot of back-breaking work. Building a pool isn’t a one-man job. At any given time, several experienced pool technicians will be working on your site. The team dynamic is safer as well as more efficient. As a team working together, you’ll pool will be built and ready to enjoy in just a few short weeks.
