Making the decision to build a swimming pool in your yard is huge. It’s a decision that some homeowners can struggle with for years, going back and forth on whether or not to do it. Not only do you have to decide if it’s right for your home, yard, and needs, but there is also the budget to consider. A pool can be a great way to stay cool in the summer, create a vacation-like feeling in your own yard, and socialize with family and friends.
So once all the cards have fallen into place, and you know a pool is what you want, the next question has to do with timing. When is the “right” time to have a pool put in? Here we’ll take a look at 5 reasons to get that summer swimming pool built now, rather than waiting for fall or spring like so many people do.
Contrary to What You May Think, there is No “Right” Time
When it comes to building a pool, contrary to what many homeowners may think, there is no “right” time to do it. Instead, there are times that it can be easier and work with your schedule better, but at the end of the day, as long as the weather conditions allow, there is no “right” time. Obviously, for those who live in climates that experience cold winters, one whole season a year will be a write-off, but that usually leaves the rest of the year open.
Enjoy It into the Fall
Another reason to go ahead with that pool right now, in the middle of summer, is that you may still have time left to enjoy it into the fall. As long as you have a heater in the pool, you can go ahead and turn it up and enjoy swimming right into October, and possibly November depending on where you live.
Shop for Pool Accessories and Deck Furniture and Enjoy End of Season Sales
By putting in your pool late into the summer months, you’ll also be able to take advantage of end-of-the season sales. You can stock up on your pool toys and accessories, plus invest in new deck/patio furniture to create that backyard oasis vibe all at a discounted price.
Beat the Rush of Bookings
Because the middle of the summer isn’t always the most popular time to put in a pool, there’s also a better chance of getting the date you want. If you wait until the following spring, you could be in a big line-up of others waiting for their own pool, which means you may not get a full season out of it.
It Can Make for an Easier Process
Depending on the type of summer you are having, it can also make for an easier process. If you’re having a particularly dry summer, then the ground will also be dry and therefore easier and faster to dig into.
By going ahead with the pool right now, then you know it will be done and you can enjoy your own spa-like backyard in no time.
