Save your landscaping
The home building process can be messy and chaotic. Crew and equipment create a busy and noisy environment. The same is true when building a pool, but on a smaller scale. Your lawn will endure some wear and tear, as will the landscaping. That’s why having your pool installed before the landscaping — while your yard is nothing but dirt — really is the best option. Your plants will thank you!
Save your driveway and sidewalks
The last thing you want to do is risk cracking your brand new driveway or freshly poured concrete sidewalk under the weight of construction equipment. The homeowner may be held responsible if the sidewalk is damaged, so be sure you are aware of your city and residential rules. To prevent this, schedule your pool to be installed before the driveway and sidewalk are poured, or instruct crewmembers to avoid driving heavy machinery over the concrete.
Save on electrician and plumbing costs
Inform the electrician who is working on your new home that a pool is going to be installed so he or she can take steps to make sure the build is seamless and as cost effective and timely as possible. The plumber will also be mindful when installing the necessary hardware to ensure that the home is pool- ready.
