Bellagio Pools |


It’s certainly exciting to build a pool on your own. However, a DIY pool is easier said than done. People often underestimate how challenging it can be. Either they don’t consider all the approvals, or they think that the pool will be ready in no time.

Constructing a pool is a niche job that requires the expertise of a swimming pool contractor. They can deliver the highest quality pools that combine the latest technology and innovative design that are suitable for a variety of lifestyle preferences.

Unless you are armed with construction knowledge and equipment, costly blunders can be committed. To help you avoid such errors, Bellagio Pools has compiled a list of the most common mistakes people make when attempting to build a DIY pool.

1. Underestimating the strength required. The biggest mistake people make is that they think that building a DIY pool is like digging a hole. Keep in mind that an inground pool is a huge undertaking and with no experience, you may need to pay some hefty fines. For example, many people are unaware hat inground pools have to be submitted to a permit office. If you start building a DIY pool without the necessary permissions, in the best case scenario, you will have to pay a fine. In the worst case, you may hit something unexpected, and the authorities will make you pay the cost of repair and also a fine.

2. Underestimating the size of a project. Any construction type comes with certain kind of complications and unexpected delays. For instance, the weather plays a huge role in the construction of a pool. It is essential to consider multiple factors and know that there are delays that cannot be controlled.

3. Bargain hunting. Often, people choose the lowest quoted price without realizing that it will not give them the best quality pool. Besides, once a sub-par pool is built, it will be an expensive proposition to repair and improve. Also, the lowest quoted price is not usually the lowest price on completion. It would be best if you looked for a builder to help you construct the highest quality pool that you can afford.
