New swimming pools, repairs and renovations

How long does it take to build a pool?

Depending on the season and type of pool, it normally takes approximately 04-12 weeks. Fibreglass premoulded pools take around 04 weeks and concrete pools between 08 and 12 weeks.

When is the best time to install a pool?

Subtropical Garden & Pool Services cc builds pools year-round, regardless of the weather. However, the best time to build or renovate a swimming pool is during the winter months, June, July & August, before spring and summer. This allows you to have your pool and surrounding landscaping done by the first warm day… and gives your family a full season of fun!

There are many factors that determine the price of a pool. How big is the pool? What extras and custom features are added? The price of a pool is also determined by:

  • Quality of materials and craftsmanship.

  • Soil conditions and the presence of water or rock.

  • Warranties provided by the pool builder.

Subtropical Garden & Pool Services cc offers the highest quality of work and has the best warranty of any builder in the industry. However, our pricing does not always reflect it.
