Pool design and installation in Phoenix

describe what the image is

When summer temperatures climb into the triple digits, a backyard swimming pool can provide welcome relief. In Phoenix, you’ll typically find inground pools in neighborhoods with large backyards, such as Ahwatukee, Arcadia and Paradise Valley Village. Homeowners with smaller yards or who want to install a pool on a lower budget may opt for above ground pools.

Inground and above ground pools have different advantages, and which is best for you depends on your needs and how much you plan to spend.

  • Ladders
Average cost $30,000 - $80,000 $2,000 - $10,000

Above ground pools generally have a resin, aluminum or steel outer wall with a vinyl interior liner. While these materials have different levels of durability, they all function in the same way. Inground pools are built from concrete, fiberglass or vinyl, and each of these materials has different properties and customization options.

Inground pool materials commonly used in Phoenix

  • Concrete pools are the most popular and can be formed to any shape or size. These pools take the longest to build but can be used as a centerpiece for your backyard landscaping, and they can be built with features like integrated hot tubs and waterfalls.
  • Fiberglass pools are made with pre-built shells, which limits their customization options. These pools are extremely durable, easy to maintain and can generally be installed more quickly than concrete pools.
  • Vinyl pools are the least expensive option for those wanting an inground pool. These pools aren’t as durable as fiberglass or concrete pools, however, and the vinyl must be replaced every six to 12 years.

Maintaining your pool in Phoenix

Once your backyard swimming pool is installed, it’s important to have the proper pool supplies to keep it safe and clean. Some pool essentials include:

  • Water test strips
  • Shock chemicals
  • Filter cleaner
  • Pool net and vacuum
  • Algae brush

Pool builders offer advice on what is needed to maintain your pool yourself. If you plan on having your pool professionally maintained, pool builders often perform that service or can recommend another company that does.

Choosing a pool builder in Phoenix

Arizona pool builders must be fully licensed, bonded and insured. You can verify a company’s license online. A permit is required for new pool structures, but you don’t need a permit for renovation unless you’re having structural or mechanical work done.

When getting a quote or more information about a pool company in Phoenix, remember to ask the following questions:

  • How much experience do you have?
  • Do you provide free on-site evaluations and estimates?
  • Do you specialize in a specific type of pool?
  • What is your warranty?
  • Do you use your own crews or subcontract the work?
  • Do you have a portfolio of your previous work?

Finding a reputable swimming pool builder that does quality work ensures you’re getting a good deal on a pool that will last for years.
