How long does a new pool construction generally take?
Building a new residential swimming pool will normally take approximately six weeks from the start of excavation.
How long do I need to run my pool in the summertime?
This will vary from pool to pool, but generally a pool should run 8-12 hours per day.
Will a pool increase the value of my home?
Yes. Most studies show that a pool will increase the value of your home anywhere between 7 percent and 15 percent. It will also continue to increase in value throughout the years, just like your home
How much work is involved in owning and caring for a swimming pool?
With today’s technology and conveniences, owning a swimming pool is easier than owning a car! Pool chemical testing and maintenance, cleaning, and pre-programmed filtration and heating can all be automated. Automatic pool cleaners and various sanitizing devices also make your pool simple to maintain.
What about warranties? Is my investment well-protected?
Warranties are very important. You should also remember that a warranty is only as good as the company that issues it. Remember, not all pool installation and landscaping companies are created equal.
How should I decide on the design of my pool?
At your request, a design expert from Wood Duck Pools will meet with you at your home to discuss your needs and desires for your pool and patio designs. We will ask you how you intend to use your pool. Is exercise important? How about family use? What about location? Where will the pool look best when viewed from your home? Our design expert may take photographs, measurements, and sketches of your yard. Then, he or she will prepare a custom design at no charge…..a design that fits your needs and your budget!
What about equipment differences?
There are two main manufacturers of pool equipment: Hayward and Pentair. Both make excellent equipment. Our pool builders use Pentair because if there is a rare problem with their equipment, the factory service is very quick. They have a local repair company on contract with the stipulation that any call be answered within 24 hours.
