Building your own pool? People are often under the impression that a swimming pool contractor builds swimming pools. In truth, an inground swimming pool company simply acts as the middleman between you and the swimming pool subcontractors, and then is paid for what you could easily do yourself.

I got exactly what I wanted and saved about 30K in the process while getting better equipment and finishes. I highly recommend BYOP!

Doug and the rest of his organization was awesome and very responsive. I believe I saved between $15,000 and $25,000 dollars. 


Brian M.

We did our entire backyard with top of the line equipment, finishes and landscaping and paid about $45,000 when it was all said and done. Doing the math the same job from a pool company would’ve easily cost $65,000 or more.

I had a wonderful experience building my pool with BYOP. You learn the in and outs of the pool, which increases your confidence in it.
