Benefits of Installing a Pool in the Fall and Winter


If you’ve been dreaming of having a custom pool installed in your backyard, now may be the perfect time to start working with a pool builder. In the Sarasota area, there are many advantages to building a pool in the fall and winter months. Here are a few reasons why you may want to start your project now.

1. Better Weather

Installing a pool during Florida’s rainy season can be a challenge. Beginning in October, the Sarasota area typically experiences dryer and cooler conditions. Dry ground makes pool installation easier and cleaner. There will also be less damage to your yard and you’re less likely to face delays caused by daily lightning storms. 

2. Less Demand

When the temperatures start to rise, many homeowners feel the pressure to start their pool installation projects. This creates a surge in demand that may lead to long wait times and, sometimes, higher prices. Planning ahead and installing your pool during cooler months can help you get your project done faster. 

3. Avoid Potential Cost Increases

With the cost of just about everything going up, many pool suppliers use January 1st as the start date for new pricing. Working with a pool builder to get your contract in place before the end of the year may help you avoid having to pay higher costs for your materials, accessories, and upgrades. In some cases, you may even be able to take advantage of year-end sales and discounts as suppliers make room for new inventory. 

4. Best Time for Landscaping

The fall and winter months are the perfect time for starting your pool-area landscaping projects. Completing your pool installation and adding your landscaping now will give the plants time to take root and give your yard time to grow back in. This can help ensure that everything is lush and healthy by the time spring comes around. 

5. Enjoy Your Pool in Early Summer 

In Florida, the cooler weather doesn’t last long. By starting your pool installation project during the fall and winter months, you can be sure you won’t miss out on your opportunity to enjoy your pool as soon as the weather warms back up. While your neighbors who procrastinated may just be starting their custom pool projects, you’ll be able to spend your days relaxing on your float and congratulating yourself for thinking ahead.
