Building a pool requires working to a number of factors including weather, material curing times and site conditions and of course general layout.

With over 325 pools now installed by Ultimate Pools, we have the expertise to install pools to the highest standard with efficiency.

One of the key things people ask us when they’re looking to build a pool is, “How long will it take?” There are a few factors to consider that will influence how long it will take to construct your pool. These include (but are not limited to):

  • Planning your pool
  • What type of pool you choose (e.g. concrete or fibreglass)
  • The time of the year you build
  • Approval from local authorities
  • Any other contractors required
