Frequently Asked Questions
Interview your prospective builder carefully :
- What is his reputation in the community?
- Do you know a friend or neighbor who has used the same company with good results?
- How long has your contractor been in business and what is his experience?
- How is his standing with your local Building Department, the State Department of Consumer Affairs and/or Contractor's Board?
- Are you comfortable that your property will be treated with dignity and respect?
At Aquarian Pools, customer service is the first and foremost concern for our entire staff. We believe our expertise in construction, our experience in all types of challenges, and our effort to provide supreme service to all customers is not matched in the pool industry.
It is possible to build a pool at a very low price. But you should be aware that to build a very low cost pool, equipment, structural elements, craftsmanship, and design are compromised. The old adage is still true: You get what you pay for.
At Aquarian Pools, we have learned that the cost difference between a great job and a poor one does not have to be significant. Your Aquarian Pool professional will help you determine a budget and secure financing that works for you. We will design your pool to fit within those financial parameters you set, and will give you quality and beauty you can depend on.
The price of a pool is determined by much more than just the size and shape of that pool. And, unfortunately, many contractors do not include some of the most important factors affecting cost in their printed estimates. Those factors include:
- Quality of materials
- Underground strength and durability
- Customer Service
- Time required for construction
Aquarian Pools estimates incorporate the highest quality materials, craftsmanship, design, and customer service. In addition, Aquarian Pools never submits a low introductory bid with the intent of making expensive changes later during construction. Remember: Good work is never cheap, and cheap work is never good.
Good builders, like Aquarian Pools, can construct pools in yards of all sizes and shapes. Our expert design and engineering staff will handle the most challenging properties. You will be surprised and pleased with our innovative ideas that change your dreams into realities. Before you give up on that small yard or hillside location, call us for design advice. It's free!
At your request, a design expert from Aquarian Pools will meet with you at your home to discuss your pool needs and desires. He or she will ask you how you intend to use your pool. Is exercise important? How about family use? Where will the pool look best when viewed from your home? Our expert may take photographs, video, and sketches of your yard and will then prepare a custom design at no charge to you...a design that fits your needs AND your budget!
Surprisingly, construction costs for the pool structure itself do not vary much from pool to pool. Prices can be affected slightly by ease of access onto your property, demolition requirements prior to construction, and local permit costs. The size and design of the pool affect cost, too, but not as much as you might think.
Much of the variation in price is based on what is called "hardscape." Hardscape is what is placed around your pool to enhance its design. The size and materials used in your deck, patios, waterfalls, gazebos, planter walls, and many other features can be simple or sensational. As the customer, you have the greatest influence on your total budget as you control the design of your pool's hardscape.
Yes! It's Easy: Financing is approved over the phone and documents are brought to you in your home. Inexpensive: because of our sheer volume, we attract the very best lenders in the industry. Tax wise: Every dollar of interest paid is taken as a direct deduction from your taxable income. At the same time, your Aquarian Pool will increase in value over the years right along with your home.
You can also use your swimming pool financing to generate additional funds for other home improvement projects or to pay off other high interest, non-deductible credit cards. This often results in savings that literally pay for the home improvement.
Warranties are very important. At Aquarian Pools, we provide you with the strongest guarantee in the swimming pool industry. We are confident in the product we build and we offer a warranty that backs up our confidence. You should always ask for and compare the warranties when requesting estimates from builders. You should also remember that a warranty is only as good as the company that issues it. Aquarian Pools has been building pools since 1972. We build our pools to last, and we will always be here to stand behind your swimming pool in the future. Anyone can offer a "lifetime warranty," but if they aren't in business for the duration of your pool's life, then you haven't got much of a warranty at all.
With today's conveniences, owning a swimming pool is easier than owning a car! Pool chemical testing and maintenance, cleaning, and preprogrammed filtration and heating can all be automated if you choose to include these options during your construction. Automatic pool cleaners and various sanitizing devices make your pool a pleasure to maintain. Many pools cost less and are easier to maintain than your lawn. Your only concern will be finding more time to enjoy your pool or spa!
Never! Even experts encounter challenges during pool construction. Years of experience, knowledge, and training lead to wise solutions which give high-quality finished products. At Aquarian Pools, we can offer efficient buying power, swift construction time, and coordination with all crews so that you have no hassles, no headaches, and no cost overruns. Be assured that equipment suppliers and contractors will charge you more than the actual value of the work. With an Aquarian Pool, you come out the winner with an outstanding, well-built, guaranteed project every time.
