Is The Biggest Builder Better?

Many people think that the bigger the builder the better they must be. Actually the opposite is true in most cases. Builders that have showrooms, advertising and a large staff also have huge overhead. Many times the way they combat the overhead is to use knock off materials, valves and equipment. There is a sweet spot of about 30 to 50 pools per year that allows for unsurpassed quality, great customer service and proper project supervision. We have found the sweet spot and our reputation is spotless.

Why Do Pool Estimates Vary So Much?

The price of a pool is determined by much more than just the size and shape of that pool. Unfortunately, many contractors don’t include important factors that affect cost in the actual estimate they give you. This also means that you can get hit with hidden charges after construction has begun. Some important things to consider are:

  • Quality of Materials
  • Craftsmanship
  • Design Expertise
  • Underground Strength and Durability
  • Customer Service
  • Time Required for Construction
  • Warranties

A Polynesian Pool estimate always includes the highest quality materials available, superior craftsmanship, expert design, and unparalleled customer service. You also get the knowledge and expertise of more than 30 years of custom pool building experience. And we never submit a low introductory bid with the intent of making expensive changes later.

What Affects The Price Of a Pool The Most?

Surprisingly, construction costs for the pool structure itself do not vary greatly from pool to pool. Prices can be affected slightly by ease of access onto your property, demolition requirements prior to construction, and local permit costs. The size and design of the pool affect the cost too, but not as much as you might think.

Much of the variation in price is based on what is called “hardscape.” Hardscape is what is placed around your pool to enhance its design. The size and materials used in your deck, patios, waterfalls, gazebos, planter walls, and other features can be simple or sensational. As the customer, you have the greatest influence on your total budget as you control the design of your pool’s hardscape.

How Do I Choose a Design For My Home?

Each property has unique features that should be considered when your pool is being designed. So does your family! At your request, a design expert from Polynesian Pools will meet with you at your home to discuss your pool needs and desires. He or she will ask you how you intend to use your pool. Is exercise important? How about family use? What about location? Where will the pool look best when viewed from your home?

What If My Backyard Is Small?

Expert builders can construct quality pools in yards of all shapes and sizes. Our expert design and engineering team can work with the most challenging properties. You’ll be surprised by our innovative solutions that can turn your dreams into a beautiful backyard resort. Before you give up on your impossibly small yard or hillside location, call us for design advice. It’s free!

Does The Equipment Brand Really Matter?

YES! Most large companies are locked into their brand and have negotiated prices for volume buying. This means that they are also usually exclusive to the brand. All brands have their good, better and best products. We use Pentair brand equipment because it is the best for easy repairs and parts are readily available for their products. However, if and when your project can benefit from another product we have no agreements to keep us from recommending another product as an option if we feel it could be a better solution to your particular needs.

  6. Increase the Value of Your Home – Recent studies show that owning a pool increases the value of your home by as much as 15%. It also makes your property more attractive to prospective home buyers. If it comes time to move, owning a pool may be the difference between selling your home quickly or keeping it on the market.

  10. Long Lasting Fun – Building a pool is a great investment that will reap rewards for a lifetime. A vacation, a movie, or a visit to a theme park will all come to an end, but a pool will be enjoyed by your friends and family for years to come.
