How Long Will it Take to Build a New Inground Pool?

It’s exciting to install a new pool in your home! You’re now wondering how long you’ll have to wait between breaking ground to making that first dive.

How long it takes to install an in-ground pool depends on a few factors. Our team at Somar Pools in Ft. Lauderdale explains what to expect.

Pool Material

The fastest pools are made from pre-fab parts like flimsy liners or vinyl shells. These pieces are shipped in and then placed in the prepared site. Everything is done in a matter of weeks.

Gunite pools, on the other hand, are built to last. These pools are created with rebar-reinforced concrete. This method allows for greater flexibility of design. You have more freedom to choose a shape and finish you like. Plus, the pool will last for many years. The only setback is that concrete needs more time to set.

A concrete in-ground pool in Ft. Lauderdale takes about two months to complete.

Season Considerations

Once we start a project, we’ll see it through to the end. But we may not be able to get started if you call at peak season when we’re already booked. Start calling now, well before the hot summer weather rolls in so that we can get started on pool construction ASAP!

Permit Approval

You’ll need to ensure you have necessary permits to start building. The sooner you get them approved, the sooner construction can begin. Delays in the permit process will only add to the wait time.
