WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN BUILDING A POOL

Building or installing a new swimming pool is a multi-staged undertaking. From the moment you decide to invest in the health and happiness a backyard swimming pool delivers, it helps to understand the various project phases and the time each will take to complete.

6 | Choosing Your Pool & Spa POOLSPALIFE.COM.AU

Installing or building a pool is a big undertaking, with lots of variables to consider along the way. Autumn is a great time to kick off, ensuring everything is ready when the warm weather returns. The process is not quite as simple as digging a hole in the backyard and filling it with water, so it’s helpful to understand the process and how long it will take.

SOME CONSIDERATIONS BEFORE YOU BEGIN

A bit of groundwork is required before you schedule an initial consultation with a builder. Do you have house plans and do they show the elevation of your block? How much of the yard do you want to utilise? Do you have sewer or stormwater drains running under your property? What is the plan for the rest of the landscaping? Do you have enough access for a machine — minimum of 2 metres is required — and do you need neighbours’ consent?

The material construction of your pool will largely determine the entire project timeline. You can expect a concrete swimming pool project to take around four months to complete. Fibreglass pool builds are typically slightly shorter, at about three months, and prefabricated plunge pools can be installed ready for swimming within days of council approval being provided. Composite or vinyl-lined pools are usually installed in just under three months and above-ground pools will take as little as nine weeks.

STAGE ONE — INITIAL CONSULTATION

Once you’ve decided to take the plunge, your first interaction with the pool and spa industry is seeking an initial consultation. This will probably take a couple of weeks and may involve a pool supplier, builder or contractor, designer, architect and/or engineer. You can expect the following things to take place:

• An initial visit to your home, where the contractor or builder will conduct a site inspection and discuss your requirements in detail.

• Design consultation, which may include engaging an architect, engineer or other design professional. This will depend on the nature of your site including access considerations or any engineering complexities that will influence the overall design and construction.

• Provision of a written quotation, along with particulars on contract terms, applicable warranties etc.

• Contract finalisation and signing. The contract will incorporate the physical design details of your pool: shape, size, water depth, the interior finish, the type of filtration and access. It will also outline the progress payments schedule — you will be expected to pay instalments throughout the construction and installation process. The contract should detail when payments will become due, what those payments specifically cover and what will happen in the event of unforeseen circumstances or delays. It should additionally outline warranty terms on both the pool and associated equipment like filtration systems.

The initial consultation period should also include explanation of the types of insurances required including building indemnity and/ or contract works cover.

STAGE TWO — COUNCIL APPROVALS

Approval is usually the lengthiest stage of a pool build or installation, taking anywhere from just a few weeks to a couple of months, depending on the approval process in your state or territory.

Choosing Your Pool & Spa | 7 POOLSPALIFE.COM.AU

Things may move a little slower than you would like at this stage, but getting an approval is required to ensure your pool is built to plan. You should check with your local council if you are unsure about what is involved in getting an approval. This is to ensure that your pool meets all of the applicable legal requirements including local structural and safety obligations, along with any state mandated conditions.

You may need to check with your water provider regarding any water restrictions that may be in place before filling your pool. You will also need permission from the local water authority prior to filling your pool or spa with mains water. There are a number of variables depending on your location — especially at times when water restrictions are in place — but the issued permit will clearly outline conditions that must be met in order for you to comply with local requirements.

STAGE THREE — INSTALLATION OR CONSTRUCTION

Installation or construction is the largest variable in a new pool project. A prefabricated plunge or above-ground pool can take as little as two or three days, but you’ll be looking at close to eight weeks for a concrete construction. Fibreglass and composite/vinyl-lined pools will generally take around three to four weeks to finish.

Processes include:

• excavation and earthworks

• construction (in the case of concrete or composite/vinyl-lined pools) or shell installation (in the case of fibreglass pools)

• tiling

• laying the coping

• safety barrier installation

• filling the pool and balancing the water.

Depending on your location, there may be a requirement for staged inspections by council or a private certifier at certain points in the installation or construction process, so ask your contractor to explain this process in more detail.

STAGE FOUR — HANDOVER

Not long now till you can take that first anticipated swim in crystal clear water. Handover should include provision of a checklist and a comprehensive run-down on how to maintain and protect your new investment.

Elements of a handover include:

• provision of a certificate of completion or similar

• explanation of statutory and manufacturer warranties

• provision of equipment and accessories information, including instruction or operations manuals

• explanation of pool safety instructions

• start-up and running procedure instruction

• maintenance schedule steps and recommendations

• referral to a qualified SPASA service technician for ongoing maintenance and advice.

Once handover is complete, the pool is officially yours and you can start swimming!

It’s important to note that we’ve provided this information as a general guide on average installation and construction time frames. As every pool is different, your unique project may take more or less time. The average times provided do not take into account any extraordinary circumstances or events, like access difficulties or material choices that may delay construction. These times also exclude additional after-the-fact processes like paving or landscaping. Your contractor can provide a more detailed and accurate plan based on your specific circumstances.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT POOL BUILDER

Installing a new pool or spa is an exciting endeavour. From the moment you start researching to the day your new pool is filled with water, you can feel the sense of anticipation growing. If everything goes according to plan, you’ll end up with a sparkling pool and bubbling spa just as you envisaged. But if things go awry, your dreams could turn sour as you encounter unexpected costs and unnecessary heartache. You can easily avoid the pitfalls by working with a member of the Swimming Pool and Spa Association of Australia (SPASA).

THE MESSAGE IS SIMPLE

Happy swimming! This is the simple message you’ll hear from any SPASA member. Sure,

10 | Choosing Your Pool & Spa POOLSPALIFE.COM.AU

the actual words may vary, but the intention is the same. Whether a manufacturer, builder, installer, inspector, retailer or service technician, industry members know from experience that people are happier and healthier when they swim more often... and they are keen to spread the word.

PEACE OF MIND

SPASA is the industry’s peak body, representing hundreds of individuals and businesses in the Australian pool and spa sector. Whether you’re looking to install or renovate a pool or spa, view the latest products or simply maintain your existing investment by keeping it in tip-top condition, a SPASA member has all the advice and expertise you need. Bound by a strict association code of ethics, our members are committed to delivering all goods and services to an established industry standard and with the highest levels of professionalism.

Our pool builder members are the only builders with access to SPASA contract documents — developed to comply with relevant state

and federal legislation, ensuring you are receiving the utmost levels of consumer protection. Choosing a SPASA member delivers additional peace of mind, as association members must comply with provision of statutory warranty entitlements, which means your contract will be completed even in the event of unforeseen circumstances including contractor insolvency or death.

When you entrust a SPASA member to bring your dream oasis to life, you are dealing with not only a fully licensed builder, but a qualified pool specialist as well.

SETTING THE BENCHMARK

As a professional association, SPASA is committed to self-regulation of the industry. The association’s representation on various government and Standards Australia Committees means that any changes to existing standards are of maximum benefit to both industry and consumers.

To maintain the highest levels of expertise within the industry, the association administers a comprehensive annual industry training program for members. In addition, it is the only registered training organisation in Australia dedicated to the swimming pool and spa industry, meaning SPASA members enjoy a level of credibility and confidence in the marketplace that outstrips the rest.

There are five key reasons to work with a SPASA member:

• Members join their industry association on a voluntary basis to advance the swimming pool and spa industry.

• Members have a demonstrated history of successful ethical trading and knowledge appropriate to their membership category.

• Members are at the forefront of the industry regarding their experience, professionalism and reputation.

• Members have access to the latest technical standards and consumer relevant information.

• Members are bound by the association’s code of ethics.

Our members stand apart from the rest of the industry, setting standards of skill, workmanship and ethical business behaviour that deliver the best outcomes for pool and spa owners.

LOOK FOR THE SPASA MEMBERSHIP LOGO

Installing a pool is a major construction project, often involving significant amounts of new information with lots of finer detail. As a consumer, you should approach your project as the substantial investment it is and be sure to carry out the due diligence that will guide well-informed decisions throughout the process. You can never ask too many questions, so take your time and choose builders, contractors, suppliers and technicians wisely.

If you want the best advice and highest levels of knowledge, experience and expertise, look for the SPASA logo and speak with a member.

Every homeowner that has been through the building process can tell you there’s a lot to think about — type and size of pool finishes and fittings, equipment choices, fencing regulations, maintenance considerations and more. That’s why the industry relies heavily on reputation and word-of-mouth referral, because no-one will ‘tell it like it is’ better than someone who has lived through the experience.

POOL LANDSCAPE DESIGN

COS DESIGN

The Mount Martha project is the quintessential modern coastal garden. Utilising the property’s natural topography, the pool, spa and multiple decking levels naturally lead to various carefully designed family and entertaining spaces. The design exploits the exquisite views of Port Phillip Bay, as well as creating a seamless connection to the home. This is a wonderful example of sophisticated coastal design.

PORTABLE SPA SPA WORLD AUSTRALIA

A major architectural renovation of this 1940s timber home in central Brisbane turned it into a state-of-the-art, modern and energy-efficient home.

Lighting for a pool or landscape can sometimes be an afterthought — or not even thought of at all — but is an absolute must when it comes to showcasing a premium-style outdoor space. A landscape or pool should be just as enjoyable at night as it is in the day and strategically placed lights can add a spectacular dimension. There are so many easy and efficient ways to include lighting that makes your space come alive at night with a simple touch of a button. Never underestimate the impact!

SWIM SPA

SPA WORLD AUSTRALIA

Recent home builders Jay and Lucy were in the market for a pool. Unfortunately, with a small backyard, a full swimming pool wasn’t an option — but a swim spa was! The couple brought in a local hydraulic cover expert to design the cover using the same material as the decking and the result is incredible! With the cover down, the swim spa is completely invisible and the area can be used for dining, playing or relaxing. With the click of a button the decking comes up and reveals their amazing swim spa.

RENOVATION OVER $60,000

AQUASTONE POOLS AND LANDSCAPES

We are so happy with this project. It was much more than a standard renovation as it included the installation of a spa as part of the design. The end result is a beautiful pool which looks more like a new build than a renovation. The client is equally as happy, which is always our aim in any project.

TRANSFORM POOLS AND SPAS

We call this project ‘the backyard wonderland’ because it has so many features that fit seamlessly into the design. This space really called for a multi-dimensional and multi-use zoned design. It is easy to picture yourself reading a book under the umbrella or splashing around in the pool by day, then enjoying a few wines around the firepit by night while the water features light up the pool. What was once an entirely unused space is now a place to entertain and enjoy.

RESIDENTIAL LIGHTING FEATURE

TRANSFORM POOLS AND SPAS

Lighting for a pool or landscape can sometimes be an afterthought — or not even thought of at all — but is an absolute must when it comes to showcasing a premium-style outdoor space. A landscape or pool should be just as enjoyable at night as it is in the day and strategically placed lights can add a spectacular dimension. There are so many easy and efficient ways to include lighting that makes your space come alive at night with a simple touch of a button. Never underestimate the impact!

SWIM SPA

SPA WORLD AUSTRALIA

Recent home builders Jay and Lucy were in the market for a pool. Unfortunately, with a small backyard, a full swimming pool wasn’t an option — but a swim spa was! The couple brought in a local hydraulic cover expert to design the cover using the same material as the decking and the result is incredible! With the cover down, the swim spa is completely invisible and the area can be used for dining, playing or relaxing. With the click of a button the decking comes up and reveals their amazing swim spa.
