Deciding which swimming pool to build, and even when to begin construction, are key decisions that can affect cost and enjoyment.
The odds are that the swimming pool contractor won't be the builder, so the homeowner will need to stay alert during construction and insist on good communication among all parties.
Future maintenance, service and repair on the swimming pool should also be considered up front when choosing a contractor.
The key to a happy ending when installing an in-ground swimming pool is for homeowners to ask the right questions and get clear answers at the beginning of the process rather than later.
