Getting a Professional Vs. DIY Pool Installation

Getting a Professional Vs. DIY Pool Installation

We’ll be going over whether a professional or DIY pool installation is better for you.

With COVID-19 still impacting many areas around the country, it’s difficult to enjoy time outside. However, for those who own pools, you can still get a lot of enjoyment from your yard, especially as we inch closer to summer. If you don’t have a pool yet, you may be considering getting one installed. One question might come to mind before your pool installation, however. That question is whether you should install it yourself or bring in professional help. We’ll be going over whether a professional or DIY pool installation is better for you.

Choosing a DIY Pool Installation

It’s definitely possible to build a pool on your own. It takes a lot of effort, but you could create a hole in your yard and use it to create your swimming pool. The real question, though, isn’t whether you CAN install a pool yourself, but rather, SHOULD you?

The main reason people will try a DIY pool installation is because they want to save money. The idea is that you don’t spend money hiring professionals to help you with the installation, which makes sense in theory. In practice, however, you usually spend more money than you would think.

You have to purchase all of the supplies yourself and even rent out some sort of excavator so you can form the hole. Beyond that, you still have to perform the installation, which is highly challenging for people without pool-building expertise. Mistakes can very easily occur, and you will likely spend a great amount of time and money fixing these mistakes. Sometimes, you’ll even end up hiring professional help to clean up mistakes regardless.

Choosing a Professional Pool Installation

When you bring in the help of a professional pool installation company, the installation is so much easier. You will have experienced staff members in your corner who have been installing pools for years, meaning the likelihood of mistakes is lower.

The pool installation is also quicker because there are more people working on the project. This lets you enjoy your pool much sooner.

There are even some areas that will only let you have a pool if it is built with the help of professionals. This would prevent DIY installations from being an option.
