Pool construction is more in-depth than many people realise, especially concrete pools. There are specific requirements for installing a pool in your section to ensure its safety. In some instances, bulk concrete, pool footings, or screw piers may be required to maintain the pool’s structural integrity.

Building Time

You might be interested to know how long it will take before you can safely splash around in your new pool.

From the start date of excavation, it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks to reach the stage of having a concrete pool shell in place. It takes time to cure before we can start adding titles and other elements. If you’re having your pool tiled, this is a time-consuming process that can add weeks to the build.

The entire pool construction process can last between 3-6 months, as it can take a while to reach the excavation stage. This is because of permits and the structural requirements that must be in place first. It all depends on how difficult the job is and which elements are needed to complete the construction. You will also need to make design decisions quickly to order products such as tiles for the pool.

Building Permit

A building permit is required for pool construction, and this can take up to 4 weeks to be approved. The length of time it takes to attain depends on factors such as the difficulty of the project and the distance from your neighbours. If you have multiple existing buildings on your property, this can complicate things as well.

The Final Step

There is still more to come after we’ve engineered the pool structure, built the pool interior, and added design elements. The final step is filling up your pool, and we won’t be able to do that until all legal requirements are met.

This includes having a pool fence constructed that meets height and safety specifications. Therefore, we will prioritise the pool landscaping before you can even use the pool.

No two jobs are the same, so it’s difficult to predict the amount of time any project will take. We can offer you an estimate dependent on the pool size, project difficulty, and other considerations.
