Having a new pool installed on your property is exciting, but it’s not without its pitfalls! There are a number of things you and your family can do to make waiting out your new pool construction more fun and less of a stress.
Be Patient With the Timeline
Having an in-ground pool installed on your property takes less time than most people imagine. In most cases, pools are ready to use in just a couple of weeks. Of course, weather and other factors can increase the timeline significantly. Talk to your contractor about how long they expect the construction process to take, then mentally add on a week or two. This will help prevent you or your family from becoming impatient with the construction process. You might even be pleasantly surprised when the pool is done early!
Accept That There Will Be Some (Temporary) Mess
One of the first tasks when building your new pool is excavating the site. There is no way around this: it’s a messy process. Taking out the dirt necessary to create your oasis means that there is going to be more dust and dirt in the area. It’s likely to make its way into your home, too. Remember that this is a temporary step in the process. Experienced contractors will take measures to help ensure the dirt and dust is kept to a minimum and will clean up the site as soon as they possibly can.
Get All Your Poolside Accessories Together
One of the best ways to prepare for your new pool is to make sure you have everything that you need to make it into your dream space! Now is the time to go shopping. Get the pool-side loungers, toys, patio furniture and other accessories you need to complete your outdoor space. Just make sure you have room to store it all until the pool is ready to be furnished!
