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

As experienced Adelaide pool builders will explain, the dry season in Adelaide, from November to March, is the best time to build a pool. During this time, there is less rainfall, making it the perfect time to build a swimming pool. This is because dry conditions are ideal for pool construction work to be completed quickly and efficiently, avoiding any potential pool building delays caused by rain.

Unfortunately, summer in Adelaide is also when demand for pool builders is at its highest. This means that getting quotes from pool builders during this time can be more expensive and the timeframe to build a pool can be longer due to the high demand.

To get the best possible pool building experience in Adelaide, it is best to get quotes from the best Adelaide pool builders with Poolz today.

The team at Peressin pools were exceptional. It's particularly important that you find the right trades for any job that you do, I certainly found the right company for our installation. They were true to their word right after the contract was signed. Communication was exceptional with all stages of the build and Phillip kept to his timeline and made it clear what to expect next, certainly a man of integrity. I never review businesses however Id like to give credit to Peressin as its certainly due with our case. Our kids have been in over 50 times in the past week and a half... Thanks a heap Peressin!!!

We could honestly not speak more highly of the team at Narellan Pools. Their friendliness, communication, professionalism, and just genuine willingness to help was second to none and made the whole process from design to approvals to installation so easy and seamless. They were so patient and worked with our builder and us to ensure that everything was done to fit in with the timeline of our build and nothing was ever too much. The knowledge that everyone has from the office to the guys on site completing the installation is incredible. Our builder also advised us that he was so happy with the installation as he has had some not-so-great experiences with other pool companies but said that Narellan was fantastic, and he would not hesitate to send future business their way. We cannot wait until our build is finished and the pool area can be completed. Bring on Summer! We would 100% recommend Narellan Pools to anyone considering getting a pool. The whole team work together to make the experience fun and exciting. Thank you so much to Pete, Chelsea, Jen, Annette, Dion, and the rest of the crew! We cannot thank you enough.

We were understandably nervous about installing our first concrete, fully tiled pool and spa. We were after a resort style pool. After speaking with John at Alpha Pools, we were soon put at ease. We showed John our basic design and he did the rest. The whole team at Alpha Pools are very professional, always friendly, and they sure know about modern pools. John, Phil, Connie, Marina, Andrew and Dion (their perfectionist tiler) made our experience pleasant and even fun. We wanted the pool of our dreams and its exactly what we got, on time and on budget with zero hidden costs. Huge thanks to everyone at Alpha Pools.

Great experience dealing with Pleasure Pools from the initial consultation to the completed pool. The team at Pleasure Pools upgraded our leaking and dated Vinyl in-ground pool to a modern sleek, fully automated pool with the benefit of a Naked pool System and robot cleaner. The construction team arrived on time every day and we had water in the new pool by day 4. Great communication throughout and Naked Pools Specialist even came around to provide instruction in testing and operation. The coping took slightly longer than expected but this was due to the team completing construction ahead of schedule. I would highly recommend if you are looking for a new pool or refurbishing an existing pool.

If you need to replace the vinyl on your in-ground pool this is the company to go with. Highly professional, excellent customer service, brilliant job and all done by a bunch of blokes who are really good at what they do and obviously enjoy doing it perfectly. Cannot recommend them any higher

Peter from Adelaide Classic Pools was great to work with in addition the team who re-tiled the pool did an impeccable job. The pool looks amazing and the work was completed in a very timely manner in a matter of days. The cost was also good value compared to three other quotes we received. All in all it was a great result from start to finish and I could not recommend them enough for a pool refurb. James N

Best decision I ever made. Signed contract earlier in the year and now waiting for tenants to get out so we can build. *sigh* Mark has gone beyond what most will, girls in the office any time I go in are always busy but more then happy to chat. Bring on 2022, that black pool can come home.

Matt and his team did an amazing job with our pool. Matt gave us ideas on the design of the pool and spa, recommended pool mosaic tiles and pool surround tiles to complement the leafy suburb of Turramurra. He takes a lot of pride and professionalism in his work. Our pool & spa is stunning and I would definitely build another pool with Splish splash pools. I couldn’t speak highly enough of Matt and his team.

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. Every pool build location is different and there isn’t a single pool builder who will provide an accurate quote without seeing your property.

With your permission, we share the information you’ve provided with the matched pool professionals to help kick-start your project quickly.

Pools come in various shapes, sizes, and designs, and the pricing can vary significantly. By understanding your pool preferences and specific requirements, we can match you with builders who specialise in building the type of pool you desire. 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.

Will my personal details be visible to everyone?
