When is the best time to build a new pool in Northern Territory?

The Northern Territory is known for its long dry season, which makes it the perfect time of year to start a pool building project. As experienced NT pool builders know, the dry season spans from May to September, and is the ideal time to build a swimming pool.

With less rainfall, building a pool is much easier and faster during the dry season, meaning it's possible to enjoy your pool sooner. It’s also important to note that demand for pool builders in the Northern Territory is highest during the summer months, which can lead to longer wait times and higher costs.

So to ensure your pool project is completed on time and within your budget, the dry season is the best time to start. Get quotes from the best NT pool builders with Poolz today.

Gary, Dave and the team at Darwin fibreglass pools and spas provided us exceptional service from our order, through to delivery and after purchase support. We purchased the lagoon pool and within three months it was installed and ready to be used. Gary initially paid us a visit to talk about our requirements and was very helpful. During install the team worked hard to ensure nothing was missed and we were swimming in no time. The after sales support was fantastic with great communication. The reason we chose a fibreglass pool was for the long life and ease of cleaning. They do not become as dirty as concrete pools which require scrubbing. By far we are so very happy with the service and we look forward to working with the team once again for a spa replacement in the coming years and even the possibility of more swimming pools on our property. Thank you team and look forward to seeing you on our next pool water sample.

We have built our pool with Rod Hardy Plunge Pool. We are very happy with the final outcome and the whole process. Rod was very supportive, providing suggestions and making the complex project very clear and easy to follow. Rod and his team are very professional and definitely know all about pools and construction. I am impressed with excellent quality and great attention to details. In addition, all work had been carried carefully and such major construction had a minimal impact on already established garden. Highly recommend Rod Hardy Plunge Pool. Well done !!!

Peter is LITERALLY the go to guy for pools if you want to build one in Darwin. The quality of work as well as the service is just beyond exceptional. Darwin Concrete Pools waste no time and get to work straight right in & the best part is they involve you in the process. From the size of the pool, the depth, the tiles & colour you want for your pool, you'l get a variety of options. And even after the pool's all ready for a swim & you got any questions regarding maintenance/cleaning you can shoot Peter a message & he'l gladly assist you. Just love how my pool turned out!

Why do you need so much information to match me?
Curved Arrow Icon

No two pools are the same, so we need to know a little about you and the location you plan to build in order to help you.

The pool build location

We ask for your address for the following reasons:

  • your property, pool positioning and soil conditions have a big impact on pricing and vary on every pool
  • pricing varies in different areas.

When you provide your address, we are able to assist you far more effectively and provide you with more accurate information.

Your personal details

Whilst Poolz gives you an instant price estimate, in order to get an accurate quote from a local builder, they need to get in touch with you to arrange a site inspection.

This ensures that you receive accurate quotes from builders who can bring your vision to life.

All the information we ask from you is necessary and helps to ensure we provide you with the best possible outcome. We don’t ask anything a pool builder won’t ask if you went directly to them. Rest assured that the information you provide is securely handled and used solely for the purpose of delivering the best pool-building experience for you.
