What warranties are provided when building a new pool?
Curved Arrow Icon

Swimming pool building warranties are provided, and the warranty depends on the state, pool type and company. For example, most concrete pools have a warranty equal to that of the State building licence requirements. So in Queensland, the warranty requirements for a concrete swimming pool are as determined by the QBCC and are usually 7 years. This varies slightly by State, but in most states is a similar period of time.

Fibreglass pools typically have a longer warrant that covers the structural integrity of the shell, in most cases 25 year or lifetime. That being said, these warranties have stringent requirements on the homeowner to record chemical tests on a regular basis and as such, are not as straight forward as they appear.

If you have any questions about warranties, please get in touch with us and we'll be happy to assist you.

Preparing for a pool building project involves several important considerations to ensure a smooth and successful construction process and end result. The list is too long to cover off in this FAQ, so instead, please download our Pool Buyers Checklist here as this comprehensively covers this topic.

How long does it take to build a new pool?

The time it takes to build a new pool can vary depending on several factors, including the pool type, design complexity, site conditions, and the specific requirements of your project. Generally, the process can range from a few weeks to several months.

For fibreglass pools, the installation process is typically faster, as the pool shell is pre-manufactured and delivered to the site. The installation can be completed within 2 to 8 weeks, depending on the site preparation and additional features.

In the case of concrete pools, the construction process involves more steps, such as forming, steel reinforcement and curing. The installation timeframe for a concrete pool is typically between 10-16 weeks, depending on the pool's size, design intricacy, and weather conditions.

What tradespeople are involved in building a swimming pool?

Building a swimming pool involves a range of tradespeople who collaborate to bring your pool project to life. The key tradespeople typically involved include pool builders, excavators, concreters, plumbers, electricians, tilers, fencers and landscapers. Each trade plays a crucial role in the construction process, from excavating the pool site and laying the foundation to installing plumbing and electrical systems, tiling the pool surface, installing the pool fencing, and completing landscaping around the pool area. 

Poolz connects you with reputable pool builders who have a network of skilled and licensed tradespeople, ensuring that every aspect of your pool construction is handled by qualified professionals.
