When is the best time to build a new pool in Hervey Bay?

Building a pool in Hervey bay is best done in the dry season, which runs from April to November, as experienced Hervey Bay pool builders know.

With less rain in the dry season, the ground is firmer and it's easier to dig and build the pool foundation. It's also less likely to be affected by rain and storms that can stop the construction process.

Summer is typically when demand for pool builders is at its highest, which can have an impact on the timeframe and cost of construction. To ensure you get the best timeframes and prices, it is worth getting quotes from the best Hervey Bay pool builders with Poolz today.

100% would recommend Jarred and his team. We appreciated his ability to communicate, provide top level advice, stick to timeframes and produce an amazing pool! We were stoked with the whole process and outcome. Thanks again.

Narellan Pools Sunshine Coast

Craig at Narellan Sunshine Coast answered my hundreds of questions & patiently guided me through the process. Liam was on site almost always to make sure construction was completed according to plan. Mark was very knowledgeable & also very patient whilst teaching me about all the equipment at handover so that I’m able to maintain the pool by myself. I cannot recommend these guys enough. Everyone was so professional & patient from day one to completion.

Complete Fibreglass Pool Kits

Rohan and the team at Complete Fibreglass Pool Kits were amazing from start to finish. We wanted a pool and got quotes from traditional pool builders but the costs were way too high so we looked around. After speaking with Rohan several times as he was very accommodating we decided to do the owner builder option and do it ourselves. The information and support along the way was great and no question was too big or small for them. In the end we saved at least $10K on the install and got a bigger pool than quoted by the builders. There is some work involved but its well worth it in the end. Great range of high quality pools and equipment on offer and excellent help along the way. We are so happy with our end result.

Solution Pools

We were so pleased we selected Solution Pools to build our pool. Aaron was great to deal with. He not only has great knowledge of pool construction but is genuinely a nice person which gave us confidence throughout the entire design and build process. Even after handover, he was contacting us to see how everything was going and providing assistance with the testing and chemicals required. We couldn’t be happier with the whole experience and would not hesitate in recommending Solution Pools to anyone.

Marvel Pools

Jeff and I were extremely happy with John Forrest and Marvel Pools from start to finish - he helped us with the design and we worked out between us what would suit us and our lifestyle the best. At each stage of the project we were extremely impressed with all tradies that came on-site, they were professional, friendly and worked well to ensure each aspect was finished to a high standard and John was here to oversee it all. Many of our friends and family from all over the world have watched my documented "pool journey" and been impressed and wowed by the finished are we? We highly recommend this company and feel sure you will be as happy as we are if you engage them to undertake your own pool journey. Thanks so much, John and Marvel Pools :-)--

Factory Pools

As part of this project we shopped around for Pool builders, as we where on a budget we looked at price first, Factory pools came in thousands under the rest and we thought they must not be that good then so then we looked at customer reviews, Factory pools had lots of good reviews so we took the plunge. They were great from start to finish, they explained each stage so we really understood how the process would go and they put as at ease by happily answering all our questions. They do this everyday and we have done it just this one time and they gave us much needed advice. Each team of people we dealt with were fantastic, from the guys who dug the hole to the ladies in the accounts department and everyone in between. We would happily recommend them every time. Thanks everyone at Factory pools, great job and a pleasure dealing with you. Here`s a few pics from the begging to the end of our pool build.

Century Pools Queensland

Although we had to wait a whole year for our pool build the staff at century pools were very professional at their job and knew exactly what they were doing. I did find I was chasing them at different stages of my build but communication was excellent and I guess it is just the fact that they are so busy. Our pool was functional as promised by Xmas and fully completed end of January. They also laid an extra big slab for my new shed to house my filtration at no extra charge.

Fluid Pools

We love our new pool!! The job included removal of old pool through to completion of the new pool. Ty and his team did a great job on a difficult to access site. Can't recommend Fluid Pools enough. Thanks Ty!
Hervey Bay

Norfolk Pools

Norfolk did an amazing job on our pool. All the tradies that work with Norfolk were professional and their attention to detail was exceptional. The ability to be able to ring our Norfolk consultant at any stage of the construction and ask questions was fantastic. I highly recommend the team at Norfolk and the tradies they recommend to complete other works that is required. Thanks Norfolk, Craig and the boys from Outline fencing, Mark the Sparky and Duncan from INsnrg. Clem & Trudy Gribble Nundah Qld

Concept Pools

We rang to make a first time contact appointment, Graham was there that very day, at the exact time he said. We sat down around our flood damaged fibreglass pool and discussed the options of a concrete pool. Graham understood our problems and was very helpful in explaining how to solve our dilemma. Within 15 minutes he measured it up, and gave us a quote to remove the old pool and install a new one. He said think about it, and give me a call. We decided then and there to go ahead. He gave us a time frame, which was done to the day. We highly recommend Concept Pools, from first contact, to completion they were exceptional. Thank you Graham, Chris and team….you made the whole process so easy. We love our new pool

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.
