DIY Swimming Pool?
So how will you save money by doing it yourself and going for a diy swimming pool? Well a diy swimiing pool means you can cut out the “middle man”, which is the pool construction company, by contracting out the work yourself to teams of subcontractors who would ultimately have been doing the work anyway. By doing it this way you can also avoid the additional fees charged by the pool construction company.
This does not mean extra work for you, because you will have to deal with the people who work on the pool construction anyway, so there is not going to be any additional hassle.
How much will i save if i go the DIY Swimming Pool route?
You can save anywhere between ten thousand to twenty thousand dollars by hiring the contractors out yourself. If you want to go the extra mile you can get a list of the materials they need and source those out yourself, usually that amounts to another five thousand dollar saving. If you are going the DIY route or direct i recommend you read this book, i learnt everything i know about pools from it.
