Did you know? Approximately 680 pools are sold per day in France. The main reason for these new buyers is to increase the value of their property.

Although you may be in a hurry to enjoy your pool, you should be aware that a project takes a lot of time to draw up, especially if you want a custom pool. It is essential to think about your project months in advance. And we are here to give you the best practical tips for buying a pool with peace of mind.

When to buy a pool?

The desire to buy an in-ground pool usually appears in summer, but it is a time-consuming project that will only be ready for the following summer.

Fall is the best season to start building your pool, as this allows you to confirm your pool design after you've given careful thought to what you need and how you're going to use it. The ground is usually wet, which makes the earthwork stage much easier.

Winter is not the best season because of the frost that can occur and prevent progress on building a pool.

Spring is a slower season for pool specialists, who can, in principle, carry out your project for the summer if you contact them at the beginning of the season.

How long does it take to build a pool after I have bought it?

Many factors can influence the delivery time of your pool, including the weather, which is why certain seasons such as fall and spring are preferable. However, the size of the pool, its lining, the finishes and the optional extras affect the building times, which means that custom pools take longer. This is especially true if you want a high-end pool with the best equipment and home automation systems on the market.

The previous criteria are important, but what will most influence the project is the type of pool:

Custom pools

This type of pool is the longest, usually between 8 and 12 weeks. It is the design and the addition of specific equipment that generally increases the time compared to a pool kit or a more generic model. SolidPool works with you and advises you on the creation of your project and takes care of the entire construction to deliver your pool without you having to worry about anything.

Be aware when you build your swiming pool; you also need to consider the time needed for landscaping. To be sure, it is recommended to allow 1 to 3 months for the construction of a swimming pool, excluding the time for planning permission, etc., which can take from 2-3 weeks to 2-3 months.

Pool kits

A self-build solution for families and DIY enthusiasts, these models let you build your pool in your spare time and at a lower cost. SolidPool also offers unique patented kits that let you build your own pool easily with the help of our professionals to advise you and approve each step.
