Best Time of Year to Start Planning Your Pool

Use the Fall and Winter Months to Build Your New Inground Pool

Summer has come to an end, and if you spent most of the summer wishing you had a swimming pool, now is the perfect time to start planning your pool for next season. In fact, the pool building experts at Anthony and Sylvan Pools highly recommend that our customers start the planning process in the fall and winter months, especially if the goal is to have a new swimming pool by next summer.

Understanding the Steps Involved With Pool Building

Although it may be hard to think about swimming as the weather turns colder, fall and winter are the perfect months to start the inground pool planning process. People who are swimming by Memorial Day generally hire a pool builder sometime between October and November.

While many homeowners consider the time that it takes to install a swimming pool, they are often unaware of the steps involved before the installation even begins! Every project is different, but Anthony and Sylvan Pools recommends you spend at least one or two months on the design of your new pool. If you start in October, you can be digging in late fall or be on the schedule for early spring.

Here are some steps to planning your swimming pool in the fall and winter months.
