FREQUENTLY ASKED POOL QUESTIONS
Do I have to pay for the pool installation estimate?
No, we provide a complimentary in-home estimate of costs.
How much mess is the excavation going to take?
The work will be shocking. It is major excavation. So try to look past the mess and visualize the bright sun and sparkling water.
How long do I have to look at the mess?
Normally and weather permitting, it actually takes about two weeks on the average.
In looking through various pieces of literature, why don’t I see diving boards?
The idea of a pool with a deep end diving board needs some serious thought. Most homeowners don’t need deep pools. These models are more expensive to build, maintain and present serious safety factors to be considered.
What about resale value of my house?
The value of a pool when it comes time to sell your home depends on geographic location, the type of pool and its condition relative to your home selling. When a pool is in good condition, it greatly enhances the value of the home.
What type and kind of maintenance do I need to do to the pool?
Owning a pool requires attention on your part to keep the water clean and safe but you should also plan on performing some minor maintenance to keep equipment running at peak efficiency. Every pool is different and the requirements to keep the water clean differ for each one. Keep in mind that a large pool party, using the spa more often than normal or even a heavy rain storm can change the dynamics of the water chemistry and require additional maintenance.
What permits will I need?
Easy Living Pools will secure any and all permits.
It’s not raining today, why isn’t the crew out here working?
One must remember just because the sun is out, doesn’t mean the sub-grade is dry. Safety must be observed at all times during the construction of an in-ground pool. When you’re working next to an 8-9 foot hole, the soil must be sure footed so that one does not slip.
Who will be my contact person?
You will be provided with our office phone along with our foreman’s cell phone. We also keep in touch with our clients via email and offer updates regularly during construction.
How long will my pool liner last?
