Everyone’s looking to save money where ever they can, and while this is possible in many respects, when it comes to your pool, homeowners should do anything but settle for budget pools.  While the initial costs of having a less expensive pool installed in your backyard may seem attractive, within a short period of time you’ll quickly discover that that pool you thought was such a bargain is going to cost you a whole lot more in the long run.  Here’s why:

Bargain Labor

One of the primary reasons why you may be saving a lot on swimming pools in Arizona is because you’ve selected a pool company that’s providing unqualified and inexperienced labor.  Many less than reputable pool companies will hire random contractors who have no experience working with pools to help construct and install pools, from gunite to vinyl to fiberglass.  This means you can end up with a bad, cracking and crumbling foundation which will require significant repairs in a few years, shoddy decking that may begin to deteriorate or be poorly constructed so it is uncomfortable or looks bad, or your whole pool may become a safety hazard and be unusable until significant repairs are undertaken.

Bargain Materials

Another way that budget backyard pool design companies will help trim back on costs is to choose inferior materials to build your pool and decking with.  While you don’t have to choose the most expensive pool material or best pool decking material, you certainly don’t want to settle for the cheapest option of the lot.  Generally speaking, the less expensive the materials, the less durable they are. Components and materials used for budget pools end up needing replacing years before moderate to expensive materials and equipment will.  Homeowners often find that they spend more money replacing cheap materials than investing in quality materials that can last for decades when properly cared for.
