Questions to Ask About Installing a New Pool - TMC Custom Pools

An in-ground pool is a great way to boost your home’s value and get more enjoyment out of it. But it’s also a big investment, and you’ll want to make sure that you’re completely comfortable with the process before moving forward. Write down a list of your questions to ask the pool contractor. The following questions can help you get started.

What’s the right location for my new pool?

The pool contractor will evaluate the available land to determine the ideal location for your pool. However, you shouldn’t hesitate to give the contractor your input. Do you want the pool hidden from view from the front of the house? Do you want the pool close to the house so that you can build a deck or patio that extends to it?

What’s the right size and shape for my pool?

While you’re thinking about the best location for your pool, consider other factors like the ideal size and shape. The contractor will design your pool to suit its intended purposes. If you want to use it primarily for exercise, then a rectangular pool would be best so that you can easily swim laps. If you want to use it primarily for relaxation, then you could have a smaller pool with a more creative shape.

What sort of equipment will I need?

There’s more involved to installing a new pool than just excavating the ground and installing the gunite. The pool contractor can provide you with a full list of everything else your pool will need, from the pool heater to the plumbing and electrical service. You’ll also need pumps, lights, and filters.

This company exceeded my expectations on every level. They were very courteous and showed up on time. The work was outstanding and they were priced very competitively too. They worked very quickly and did everything that was promised. Their quote beat other pool companies by a LOT and we were very pleased with the finished job. I would not hesitate to call them again in the future and most likely will. Very happy with this work.

Had some cracked bricks around the edges and they did a quick repair job and didn’t get much debris in the pool at all. Definitely will call them if I need a pool contractor again. This was so pain free we’re talking about remodeling all the bricks around the edge of the pool!

Amazing customer service. I felt like we were taken care of like we were a part of their family. They went the extra mile to make my grandmother feel extra special and not pressured to make fast decisions. Always professional. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family for any pool needs.
