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

As experienced South Australia pool builders know, the dry season in South Australia is between October and April, making this the best time of year to build a swimming pool. During this time, the weather is generally sunny and dry, allowing for the pool building process to be completed quickly and with minimal disruption. With less rain, there is also less risk of damage to the pool or delays in the construction process.

Summer is also the time of year when demand for pool builders is at its highest, which can lead to longer wait times and higher costs. To ensure the best price and service, it is important to start the process early and compare quotes from the best South Australia pool builders with Poolz today.

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.

A huge thankyou to everyone at Peressin Pools. This family business is one of the most professional outfits I have ever dealt with. From the first contact through to handover, Peressin have been professional, friendly, on time, super responsive, honest and reliable. They have built us an exceptional quality pool surrounded by a gorgeous paved area. They go the extra mile with their attentiveness and attention to detail. Before embarking on building a pool, we thoroughly researched SA pool builders and couldn't go past Peressin. Their excellent reputation is well deserved.

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.

Riverina Pools Adelaide

Our experience with Riverina pools began with a reference from our builder as a reputable company to work with so we decided to give Riverina a go. From the onset of our relationship with Riverina we realised the high level of customer service and personalised approach to dealing with customers. Mark, Sian and the team were extremely helpful and professional right throughout the process. We especially appreciated their patience and understanding especially when making decisions around colours and the look of the pool and coping. Their prices were competitive and they also provided some upgrades depending on which promotions were running at the time. But most importantly Riverina were there from beginning to end providing support and advice with a high level of professionalism. They are a company who are keen to ensure all aspects of the pool are compliant with regulations and are very familiar with working with various councils in Adelaide. This too gave us peace of mind regarding compliance. Riverina's customer service was also great with follow-up post the handover to ensure everything was working ok. We would highly recommend Riverina pools as a reliable pool retailer, a company who are easy to deal with and provide the best possible pool for your budget. Many thanks to the Riverina team!

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 had our concrete pool tiled and coping redone. Eric from ACP managed the whole process from start to finish. His management of the job was superb. Eric was on-site everyday and oversaw the workers doing the job to ensure the highest of quality. He is quick to respond to any concerns and has great attention to detail. The quote for the job was very competitive and the end result exceeded our expectations. I can't recommend them highly enough. I will not call upon anyone else for any future work on our pool besides Adelaide Classic Pools. They are simply the best.

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.

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

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

o so happy with our first concrete pool and the Alpha team. From day 1 Phil was amazing with our quoting etc took the time to give us all options and even communicated over the Christmas period. Jacob, Andrew, Steve and all of the trades were fantastic. I haven't dealt with a company like Alpha Pools for a long time where the communication is second to none. It has been a nice change in this day and age. Every step of the way even if someone was running a little late we were advised. To say we are over the moon with our overall result is an understatement. Thanks so much to ALL of the team at Alpha Pools. (Grey marble from Stone Craft and Sea Breeze from Tiles on Bradman)

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.
