Fall Pool Builds: Demand, Availability, Weather and Soil

In part one of this two-part blog series, we looked at some of the key reasons why some swimming pool clients opt for the “off-season” for installation of new pools on their property. The fall and even the winter are often ideal times to install a new pool, and there are several specific reasons behind this. 

At Packman’s Pools, we’re here to help with a variety of swimming pool design, swimming pool construction and related services, and we regularly assist clients with fall or even winter swimming pool builds. What are some of the other key reasons why some people choose to handle pool design and builds during the off-season? Here are several.

Less Demand for Permits

Permits are often a major stumbling block for those looking to install a swimming pool. It can be more of a challenge in the summer – when many people are seeking permits and approvals. During the off-season, however, there tends to be far fewer people requiring permits and related authorizations, making it easier to get yours approved quickly and with minimal headaches.

Contractor Availability

Down similar lines, many pool installation contractors are also busier during the summer months. As a result, they may not be able to accommodate your timeline or work with you in terms of price. During off-season months, there’s often more availability and flexibility.

Better Weather Conditions

While there are certainly some limits here, such as installing a swimming pool when there are large quantities of snow on the ground, there are also many cases where fall and early winter weather are ideal for building and installing a pool. This is hard work that can be grueling during the heat of the Utah summer; during the off-season, however, it can be much more pleasant and comfortable.

For instance, the fall often features cooler temperatures – but not accompanied by heavy snow or blizzards. This can help to make the work easier and more efficient, saving you money in terms of labor and construction time.

Dry Soil Can Make Construction Easier

Relatedly, dry soil during the off-season can actually help with construction and installation, making it much easier to work with in terms of pool design. Finally, it’s also worth noting that you’ll often have more time and flexibility to consider options and make your decisions when not working on a tight summertime deadline.

Ultimately, there are many different ways in which installing and constructing a swimming pool during the off-season can be beneficial.
