Deciding to take the plunge and turn your backyard into a pool paradise can be…
Do you spend time and gas money carting your kids around to the country club pool or find yourself envious of your neighbors who can throw pool parties every weekend? Do you like to swim laps but wish you didn’t have to drive to the athletic club and use public showers and locker rooms? Maybe it’s time you got a pool of your own and consider a fall pool installation.
If you’ve been thinking about installing an inground pool in your backyard, stop thinking and start planning. While most people think you have to wait until spring to install a pool, there are several reasons why the end of summer is a great time to start planning for a fall pool installation.
Let’s take a look.
Reason #1: Your Pool Installation Project Gets Started Faster
The weeks of spring and early summer are peak pool installation season. That means your average pool builder is not as busy as summer winds down. Opting for fall pool installation means you are more likely to be able to schedule design consultations faster, choose a pool builder, and get the permitting process moving along. In addition, the permitting offices are generally not as busy at the end of summer as they are in the spring.

Reason #2: Your Costs May Be Less Than If You Wait Until Spring
Some pool builders may offer incentives to book your inground pool installation in autumn. But the main reason it may be less expensive to install a pool in the Fall rather than Spring is because of the annual rise in the cost of goods.
Manufacturers of all kinds raise their prices every year – concrete, fiberglass pools, pool pumps, pool decking, etc. all go up in price. In addition, labor costs go up each year as pool companies strive to keep experienced workers.

Reason #3: Your Pool Landscaping Gets Established Easily
Fall is a great time for planting trees, shrubs, and grass. Summer, not so much. This is due to the generally cooler temperatures in the Fall. Your pool landscaping has time to establish a strong root system so it will be in peak condition by next spring. Contrast this with trying to plant things in spring or summer – everything needs constant watering and may die anyway due to extreme heat.
