Building a brand new pool is fun, but it can also result in costly mistakes if a pool owner isn’t carefully considering his or her pool design, budget and builder. Today’s pool school is geared to help you best navigate your Phoenix pool design options so that you’ll be able to build a pool that you’ll love for the next several years to come.

Know What Is Most Important About Your Pool

Not everyone is looking for the same features in their pool. Is having a low maintenance pool important to you? Are you looking for a highly customized Phoenix pool design? Are water features the most important part of the pool? Step back and think about what’s most important to you and then rate them in order before you even have that first visit with a pool builder. This will help you focus on the best pool with the best options for you and your family.

Know Your Budget

Now that you know what it is that you find most important in a pool, you can begin to get more realistic about your real budget. Given the drop in property values over the past decade, it can be more difficult to obtain a loan for building a pool, fortunately at Shasta we can help you secure your financing before sitting down with a pool builder.

Know What You Want In A Pool Builder

Once you know what you want and what you can afford, now it’s time to find the person to make your dreams come true. Much as with the first pool school tip above, make a list of what you believe are the most important aspects to about the pool company you will use. It may be finding the lowest price, or having access to rare building materials. Perhaps you’re looking for a specific guarantee or warranty. The most important thing to remember is there is a difference between a Pool Broker and a Pool Builder. You want pool builder who not only is an expert in their field but who also cares about what is best for you.
