Frequently Asked Questions About Building A Pool

At Hawaiian Pool Builders, we understand that deciding to build a swimming pool is a big one and often comes with many questions. Below are a few common questions.

If I have a small yard, is it possible to build a pool that will fit my budget and dreams?

You might be surprised at what a finished pool can look like in a smaller backyard. After seeing the available space and setting, our designers can help you create a custom swimming pool which may include add-ons such as a spa or fire feature. We use Pool Studio which creates a visual of your entire backyard space. With 3-D you can look at the pool from virtually limitless angles, and in varying light conditions.

Why does the cost to build a pool vary? 

There are many factors that determine the price of a swimming pool. Some of these factors include:

  • Size of the pool
  • Custom features
  • Selected finishing materials
  • Soil conditions
  • Presence of water or rock

How long does it take to build a pool?

Depending on the season and weather, the process takes approximately 6-8 weeks.

When is the best time to install a pool?

If you want access to your pool at the beginning of the pool season, it’s best to build in the fall or get on the schedule early for the spring season.

Will my pool have a warranty?

Yes. Your warranty is one year on materials and workmanship and three years on your pool equipment. We use quality equipment when building your swimming pool and provide a warranty that covers all aspects of the pool build.

What features can I add to my pool? 

Our designers are capable of incorporating almost anything you might want. Some custom features we incorporate include rock waterfalls, complete automation controlled from a smart phone, glass finishes, deck jets, colored water bubblers, tanning ledges, love seats, enhanced lighting features, raised walls with sheer waterfalls and automatic pool covers. Our motto is “Imagine the Possibilities”.

What pool shapes are available?

Your choices are unlimited when it comes to shapes and design. Freeform, geometric, classic… it’s up to you. Our expert designers will offer suggestions on the best way to utilize the size and shape of your yard. Wherever your imagination takes you, Hawaiian Pools can design and build it.

How does the design process work?

A Hawaiian Pools and Spa designer will set up a meeting to discuss your pool interests and budget. He or she will find out what you envision in your backyard, and then help you design the perfect pool for your lifestyle, yard and budget. Prior to meeting, you may want to browse through our swimming pool pictures to get some ideas.

How much does a pool cost? 

The average cost of the basic pool varies.  Customized options, automated features, and the cost of finish materials contribute to the total price of your pool. Our design experts are trained to create a pool that fits your imagination, yard and budget.

Can I finance my pool? 

Yes. Many people are taking advantage of lower interest rates and the equity they have in their home. Hawaiian Pools works closely with lenders who specialize in finding a loan that suits your budget. For more information, contact Hawaiian Pools and we’ll be happy to help.
