Tips when comparing pool builder quotes

When it comes to selecting a pool builder it can be difficult to compare “apples with apples”. There can be so many finer details overlooked that could lead you to a choice that wasn’t exactly what you had in mind.

Here are a few tips to help ensure you make the most educated decision possible.

Key questions to ask

  1. Level of experience
  2. How long the company has been around for
  3. Are they licenced
  4. Which industry bodies are they members of
  5. What type of payment system they use
  6. What quality of products do they use (find out warranty duration also)
  7. Have they built a pool similar to what you have in mind before (experience is important)
  8. Discuss any complexities your pool will encounter to gauge extra costs or concerns in this area
  9. What is the timeline for construction
  10. What pre and after sales service do they offer (if any)

When comparing quotes ensure that you have similar inclusions and finishes. Quite often a price can be worlds apart purely because the products quoted on are not the same. It seems too good to be true, it probably is – you tend to get what you pay for.

If you aren’t sure whether the inclusions are the same – ask. When it comes to a large investment like a pool, peace of mind is vital. In the building industry it is common to gather a few different quotes so feel free to be honest and open about the information you seek.
