How Long It Takes To Build A Pool

One of the most common questions we receive from soon-to-be pool owners is, �How long will it take to build my pool?”

Much like the question, �How much does a pool cost?� � it�s not easy to answer in a straight-forward manner. Since each of our swimming pools are unique (just like each of our amazing customers), the best we can do is give you a general idea of when your pool will be completed.

We typically tell our customers that it will take approximately 6-8 weeks to build their pool. This time frame does not necessarily include the time it will take for everything to be completed pre-construction (like the permits, HOA approvals, and financing), so if you�re trying to have your pool swim-ready for a particular event, we suggest you start the buying and building process early. For more information on when you should buy a pool, read our previous blog: �When is the best time to buy a pool?�Keep in mind, your pool is unique and may take a longer (or shorter) time to build than your neighbor�s pool may have.

The length of time it takes to build a pool is also affected by weather conditions. For example, when it rains, we lose 2-3 days of work because the ground stays wet. Also, our crews cannot work in freezing temperatures.

Also keep in mind that many people decide to build a pool in the Spring and Summer months, so because of the demand, you may have a delayed start time.

What Happy Customers Are Saying About Us

We had a cocktail pool installed by KZP and the pool turned out fantastic. We received quotes from two other pool companies, and while KZP was the higher, they were also the only ones willing to work with our custom design. They use top-quality materials and offered a huge selection of pool fittings/finishes. Kent Ely in sales was easy to work with and was pressure-free at making the sale. Bill Sturgis was our site supervisor (we didn't see him very often but was very responsive to email, phone calls, or text messages). Elizabeth, in the design department, was fun to work with while we picked color scheme and tiles. They had a very small space to work with and they did what they had to do to make it work. I would recommend KZP to anyone.

We are very excited to start using our Kieth Zar's pool this summer. They turned our backyard into our dream. Tony came out and answered all our questions on the initial visit, and measured everything in our backyard, including trees. He returned the next week with an outstanding design on paper and a 3-D model on the computer that made it come to life. We had some delays and struggles with HOA, but knowing that Zar's was in our corner and doing all the work to get everything approved, we had no worries. Work was completed on schedule, even with weather delays. John and Toby walked us through and answered all our questions along the whole build process. We also know we can still call with any more questions we have along the way, even though the job is complete.
