Background scaled Our designers are working diligently to make sure that you get the initial drawing in 7-14 days after you approve the design. Once you send the design to permitting and engineering you will be looking at varied time frames. If there is nothing that the municipality is requiring in addition, you should have your permits within 2-3 weeks. Engineering is taking approximately 1-4 days.

With BYOP, we want to be as transparent and upfront with you in your time expectations as we possibly can. We are working diligently with the trades to get your pool built as quickly as possible. The trades are experiencing longer than normal waits on materials as well. They have also been faced with staffing issues due to crews not being able to work due to Covid-19. We have encouraged them to add staff, keep the communication open and active through this.
The surge in new Pool Builds for the entire Nation has more than doubled in 2020 and the start of 2021. The designers, Cad Department, customer service department and trades have worked hand in hand to make sure that every BYOP customer has been kept updated on a regular basis as the process moves forward.

Due to the extremely heavy demand on the trades, we recommend starting your process as soon as possible. Our staff and the trades that work on your backyard project want to make sure that you are aware of the expectations and time frame that new construction of the pool and back yard will take.

Have questions for build your own pool?

Save Time and Money…

So you can start enjoying your pool

For more than 25 years now, Build Your Own Pool has been working with its customers to design custom pool plans.  Designing pools, spas and water features for your backyard with specifications and notes so that local pool sub-contractors can provide you with cost information and construction sequencing for your new pool project.

Saving Money & Time requires a plan, and BYOP provides you with that.  A plan based on industry standards, in a format that the pool sub-contractors can read and are familiar with, that spells out the specifications of your pool – all of this – Saves You Time and Money.

Stop trying to compare three or four different pool designs with options and features you didn’t even want.  You select the team, the finishes, and the features you want all at a price point that you can manage.  It’s your pool project so you decide how much you want to spend based on the pool sub-contractors you choose.  You get to choose subs based on their warranties and your schedule and eliminate the hidden markups of a traditional pool buying experience.

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.

Once you finalize up your plans with your subs, if needed, BYOP can also provide you with tutorials to help you prepare the paperwork thats necessary for your new pool submittal to your City or County.  In addition, we can also provide you with referrals to experienced engineers who can provide you with all the structural engineering details you might need for your project.

With our experience and easy to follow guides, you’ll speed up the permit submittal process and minimize the permit review and processing time which helps you save even more time in getting your pool project started.

With your new pool construction plan in hand, your selected sub-contractors chosen and your approved permit, you will have all the information needed for your new pool construction project. We even have a package that can help answer questions about sequencing and understanding all the pool building jargon throughout your new pool construction process. 

Build Your Own Pool has helped thousands of homeowners and people just like you save money and time building their own pool, spa and water features that they can enjoy with family and friends all year round.
