The thought of building a pool in your backyard can be overwhelming! How do you choose a company? How do you choose a design? How long will it take? The number one thing is to be sure you hire a company that is properly licensed and insured. Use the Find a Florida Pool Prosm search for FSPA members in your area. Get references and verify licenses at www.MyFloridaLicense.com. Your pool company can guide you through design decisions that need to be made to come up with a final product. Visit our What to Expect page for a few things you may not have thought about before, like how much the weather can affect a project. On the Phases of Construction page is an outline of how a pool takes shape including permits, plumbing, equipment and interior finish. And of course, enjoy the swim once your pool is finished!
