4. Will a pool increase the value of my home?

5. What about warranties? Is my investment well-protected?

Warranties are very important. At Wells Pools, we provide you some of the strongest guarantees in the swimming pool industry. We are confident in the product we build and we offer a warranty that backs it up. You should also remember that a warranty is only as good as the company that issues it. Dozens of pool builders go out of business each year. And if they’re gone, so is your warranty.

6. How much work is involved in owning and caring for a swimming pool?

In the past, pool maintenance was somewhat of a chore. But with today's technology and conveniences, owning a swimming pool is easier than owning a car! Pool chemical testing and maintenance, cleaning, and preprogrammed filtration and heating can all be automated. Automatic pool cleaners and various sanitizing devices also make your pool simple to maintain.

7. Why do I see advertisements promising pools at very low prices.

It is actually possible to build a pool at a low price. But you should be aware that to build a low cost pool, equipment, structural elements, craftsmanship, and design are all compromised. The old adage is true: You get what you pay for.

8. Why do cost estimates vary so much when the pools seem to be the same?

The price of a pool is determined by much more than just the size and shape of that pool. Unfortunately, many contractors don’t include important factors that affect cost in the actual estimate they give you. This also means that you can get hit with hidden charges after construction has begun. Some important things to consider are:

  • Quality of Materials
  • Craftsmanship
  • Design Expertise
  • Underground Strength and Durability
  • Customer Service
  • Time Required for Construction
  • Warranties

 

Wells Pools’ estimates always include the highest quality materials available, superior craftsmanship, expert design, and unparalleled customer service. We never submit a low introductory bid with the intent of making expensive changes later.

9. Should I consider building my own pool as an owner/builder?

No, never! Even the experts encounter incredible challenges during pool construction. Years of experience, knowledge, and specific training lead to wise and innovative solutions that produce our superior quality finished products. At Wells Pools, we offer you enormous buying power, efficient construction, plus we coordinate all of the work so that you experience no hassles or delays. And remember, it can be very difficult if not impossible to manage your warranties without a General Contractor. We have been called on many times to finish a pool started by an Owner/builder or to correct costly mistakes done by sub-contractors that would not honor their warranties.

11. Do pools contribute to the drought?

Water agency studies have proven that residential swimming pools require considerably less water to maintain than the landscaping they replace.
