Depending on the area in which you reside, when the temperatures drop and the leaves fall off the trees, your desire to own a pool may be ebbing ever-so-slightly. But did you know that installing a pool is actually best done in the fall? Although it might need a little exercise of that underutilized delayed gratification muscle, it will undoubtedly be worthwhile next summer.
Check out these 5 reasons why building a pool in the fall is a great idea.
A Budget-Friendly Approach
You already know the drill: purchasing during off-season or during season-ending sales is usually a frugal move. That general rule, however, also applies to pools, not just to apparel or seasonal decorations. Pool demand often declines in September, leaving builders with inventory that they are frequently eager to sell. They frequently agree to give those things a discount in order to make room for the inventory for the next year.
Spend More Time in the Pool
We’re not proposing you go full Polar Bear Club on us with your new pool, so don’t worry. However, if you build your pool off-season, you’ll have a lot better chance of finding a builder who will give your project first priority. You can be sure that your new pool will be ready and waiting when the weather warms up again if you install it before the cold season arrives. On the other hand, if you wait until the following spring to do construction, there may be delays that prevent your pool from being installed until far beyond Memorial Day. We promise you’ll regret not having your pool installed in the fall when you’re staring at your half-finished swimming pool in June during a stretch of 90 degree days!
You’ll be happy your pool is already installed when you’re ready to continue transforming your backyard, whether you decide to DIY a deck or landscaping or hire out those spring jobs. Some projects won’t only be hard to complete before the installation, but most budgets will benefit when those extra costs are spread out rather than thrown on top of your pool installation.
A Wonderful Christmas Gift Idea
Wouldn’t a “coupon” for pool time make a wonderful Christmas present for family members who live across the city, neighbors with children, or acquaintances who live nearby? If your pool has already been installed, you may simplify your holiday shopping by getting everyone a pair of goggles or floating koozies – with an attached invitation to your freshly installed pool!
Alleviate the Winter Blues
Looking out over your new pool may make it easier for you to picture summertime enjoyment and help you get over the winter blues if you or other members of your family suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) throughout the winter months.
Therefore, quit second-guessing yourself and install a pool in your backyard to start making next summer greater than the one you just finished.
