Benefits of Hiring a Professional Pool Builder


If you want to add a feature to your property that will increase the value of your home and proved a place for you to build memories with your friends and family, then there is no doubt that a pool is the ideal choice for you. However, this is only the case if you take the care to build and install a premium quality shell and landscape the area around it – and this generally requires the skill and expertise of professional swimming pool builders in Melbourne. If you’re considering taking the DIY route, read this article first.

Take advantage of quality workmanship

There is a reason that pool builders charge what they do to design and install your pool and surrounding area. They have the skill, experience and background that allow them to do so. If you’re working with a new company, look through their portfolio to ensure they can build to the standard that you’re looking for – we recommend no fewer than 20 years’ experience, especially if you’re looking for a pool that stands out from the crowd!

Dive into your new pool sooner

It should come as no surprise, but professional pool builders can design, build and install your pool while you’re still researching different excavating methods. While the project itself will take between two weeks to three months (depending on the shell material), you can be confident there will be no nasty surprises. Even if there are, these will be resolved quickly and efficiently.

Receive ongoing support

If you build your own pool, you will have no one to turn to if (when) things go wrong. However, if you work with a professional team, your new pool will be covered under warranty! The issue will be addressed, and you likely won’t have to pay a cent! Even if the problem arises outside the warranty period, you still know exactly who to call if you want a team who knows your pool inside and out.

DIY Myths

Still not convinced? Read through these common myths about installing the pool yourself, and then make a decision.

It will be cheaper

Many people are under the impression that choosing to install a swimming pool themselves will save them time. Unfortunately, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Unless everything goes exactly according to plan (which doesn’t even happen for professional pool builders with decades of experience under their belts), unexpected costs will arise. Whilst a qualified team has the skills to quickly rectify this, your expenses can quickly add up. You may even need to employ a professional team to repair the mistake!

You can’t tell the difference

The short answer: You can. A beautiful pool isn’t only made from the shell – it requires tiling or painting, landscaping, decking, coping and fencing, just to name a few. Not only will these all need to be completed to a high standard, they will also need to complement both each other and your architectural style to ensure a cohesive look across your whole property. Unless you have a keen eye for detail, creative flair, and a reasonable skill level across all of these aspects, you most definitely can tell the difference.

It’s clear that working with a professional pool builder is the ideal choice for almost all circumstances – as you can’t control the weather, the soil conditions, the installation process, and a wide range of other factors, it pays to have the skill of a qualified team onboard to rectify any issues as soon as they arise. Indeed, working with an experienced company will likely save you both money, time and stress! Whether you’re considering a custom concrete pools or a fibreglass shell, employing professional builders will be a decision you won’t regret.
