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

As experienced Queensland pool builders know, the dry season is the best time of year to build a swimming pool. This is because the dry season in QLD (which runs from May to October) has less rainfall, less humidity and milder temperatures than other times of the year.

This means that the pool construction process can be carried out with fewer interruptions from bad weather and the pool can be filled with water faster. However, the warmer summer months are usually the time of year when demand for pool builders in Queensland is at its highest which can lead to longer waiting times and higher costs.

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 Bayside

Tan, Daniel, Mitch and the guys from Narellan were absolutely fantastic to deal with from start to finish. We had a few delays with starting construction due to council permits, but Daniel and Mitch worked through all the problems and their main goal was getting us a pool, and they sure did that! In extremely challenging circumstances too, especially dealing with council, and our house backs onto a main road, so lots of problems to solve! And they always communicated everything and did a great job overall. Couldn't recommend these guys more!

Busy Bee Pools Townsville

Yeah the wait list is long but the team at Busy Bee Pools make it all worth it. Love our new pool Matt and thanks for going above and beyond to get our pool finished just in time for our Son's birthday party.

Wahoo Pool & Landscapes

We are delighted to share our experiences working with Wahoo Pool and Landscaping. Wahoo are great to deal with, both professional and friendly. They always respond quickly. The designs they provide for our concrete pools are impressive. We value our working relationship and we look forward to working with them in the future. We highly recommend.

Riparian Constructions

We used Ben and his team for our pool construction. The whole process was excellent and top quality from start to finish. The area we had was limited yet Ben came up with a great design and we went with it. Ben spent a bit of time with us even on his weekends to ensure the design was within our needs and the construction started. The entire time through the construction care was taken to ensure no damage to property and the area was kept clean inside our yard and out (even high pressure cleaned dirt on the road, how many builders do this?). The process flowed well the entire time and Ben always kept us in the loop or would answer if we had any questions or concerns. The quote originally supplied was adhered to and there were no surprises delivering the pool on budget and time. In my opinion Riparian Constructions are a Top quality pool builder and highly recommend Ben and the team from Riparian Constructions.

Kirratech Lifestyle Pools

Very helpful and courteous Kirratech staff member helped me on a site with some lifting of my CCTV camera equipment. Thank you from Internal Spi.

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

Cityscapes Pools & Landscapes

We have had the best experience with Cityscapes Pools. From the initial meeting with Alison we felt like we had made the right decision and investment with the team. The design and contractual process was seamless and once Jules and the team started on the site, we already felt like we were in good, reliable hands. There was never an issue with questions we had or accessibility with both Alison or Jules. The contractors they used on site were professional and courteous. We had small children at home during the construction and the site was always secure and safe for us to continue to use parts of the yard. All in all we just couldn't be happier with the decision we made to put the pool in and landscape the yard. It's been a game changer for our famliy! I would highly recommend Cityscapes!

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.
