The #1 reason to build a swimming pool is to improve your quality of life.

Part of improving your quality of life is by building a good quality pool.

  •   Florida Building Code standards

  •   commercial grade pool equipment
  •   efficient water circulation system
  •   easy maintenance
  •   fair and reasonable prices
  •   long-term pool satisfaction

getting started

Getting started on your new pool construction is easier than you think.

Step 1:   Budget, Site Conditions, Setbacks and Survey

The first step in building your swimming pool tropical paradise is by knowing your budget, site conditions, setbacks, and have a current property survey.

How much does a swimming pool cost?

Starting costs for our swimming pool packages are $27,000 for 12x24 and $28,000 for 15x30.

A complete pool project with a large deck, material upgrades and/or custom features may cost upwards of $35,000 or more.

Starting costs for our swimming pool and spa combination packages are $33,000 for 12x24 and $35,000 for 15x30.

A complete pool and spa combination project with a large deck, material upgrades and/or custom features may cost upwards of $45,000 or more.

Smaller 10x20 pools may cost just as much to build.

Smaller pools typically will be built into a small backyard with limited access and will often require small machinery, additional deliveries and staging, and additional manual labor to construct.

When average is not enough, there are endless options in designinng and building custom swimming pools that are only limited by your budget and imagination!

How do I apply for a loan?

You can Apply and get Pre-Approved for a loan to ensure you have all the financial resources to build the swimming pool you have always wanted, that not only becomes an asset but, your favorite place to be with your family and friends.

How to determine site conditions?

It is important to know the pool site ground conditions beforehand and the building setback requirements that may determine the size and construction composition of the pool.

To know what ground conditions you may expect to ecounter before you begin excavation, we recommend you do a sub-soil investigation or soil test by a geotechnical engineer.

A soil test for swimming pools involes drilling deep holes to extract core samples where the pool is to be built and having studies performed on the core samples to determine ground water conditions and the load bearing capacity of the ground that may or may not support the pool and water.

Why would I need a soil test?

We always recommend you do a soil test before you begin the pool construction project especially, if you need a loan or financing for any part or for all of the swimming pool construction.

If the pool requires de-mucking, de-watering, a thickend structure, or pilings, the additional cost can be substantial.

You don't want to find after you have taken out a loan and begun excavation that the pool needs to be de-mucked, requires de-watering or water control systems, or even pilings.

When you are that far along construction, if you do not have the financial resources, the cost for the additional foundation work can literally break your pool construction project.

What are setbacks?

Setbacks are established distances, usually from the property lines and the house to the pool water's edge, that limit where you can and cannot build the pool.

The setbacks are usually determined by the Miami Dade County Zoning Department or by the municipality your home is located in.

Why do I need a recent property survey?

In addition to the setbacks, your property survey, which is a map of your property, may also show utility easements, show septic systems, or areas that also limit where you can and cannot build a swimming pool.

The property survey should be certified, which means it was signed and sealed by licensed surveyor. The certified survey means that as of the date of the survey everything as shown on the survey is correct and existing.

We need the survey to design and engineer the pool plans and the county or city need the survey to review with the pool plans to issue the permit.

When choosing the pool site with the conditions and restrictions and setbacks in mind you can figure the size and shape your pool while incorporating elements of your property that will compliment and add to your vision of the ideal backyard resort.
