1. Easier & faster installation
Pool installation requires a dry construction site. After the snow melts, the ground stays pretty wet for a long time. In our area unexpected spring showers are very common. So, before crews can proceed, the soil needs to dry out so that only minimal moisture remains. The ground must also be hard enough for heavy machinery to drive over it without getting mired in mud. When installing your pool late summer or fall, a random thunder shower has minimal effect on our seasonally dry ground.
2. Less invasiveness to yard & property
Since the pool installation always requires access for machinery and equipment through customer’s yard to the installation site, the dryer ground of a late summer or early fall installation, means there is less yard repair, if any, compared to a spring install, saving you work, time and money.
3. Hot weather—equals best fit for liner
The sun’s heat & higher temperatures warm up the vinyl of the liner, making it more pliable and easier to work with. With more consistent favorable late summer weather, you’ll get the best fitting liner installation without waiting for that perfect day to materialize in the spring.
4. Potential cost increase
As with everything else, inflation may play a big role in a purchase of your new pool. There is always a chance that pool manufacturers will increase their price, which they typically do at the beginning of the new season. Also, if you’re planning on financing your pool, interest rates may increase too.
5. Enjoy your new pool & landscape at the same time
Typically, if a pool is installed in the spring season, you won’t see your final landscape design until next year. By installing your pool now or in the fall, you have plenty of time to design & create the backyard oasis you’ve always wanted. When you open your pool next spring, you can enjoy your beautiful landscape and / or decking at the same time!
6. Less Stressful installation process
Avoid the waiting list competing for job completion by Memorial Day or next summer’s great weather, and eliminate frustration from frequent spring rain delays.
