Thank you for choosing to Build Your Own Pool, LLC (BYOP).  We want you to understand the process of the pool that you are designing and building.   BYOP provides you with design assistance and sequencing information for your new pool construction project.

In exchange for your payment, BYOP provides you:

  • (1) 2-D Custom Pool Design
  • Pool Studio 3D Composite Drawing
  • Construction Drawing Plan
  • 2 Revisions Included
  • Construction Process Checklist
  • Application/Submittal Check Sheet
  • Property Site Plan (Where Applicable)
  • In-Floor Cleaner Design (If Applicable)
  • Sub-Contractor List Provided
  • Backyard Planning Designs
  • A Pool Specification list that makes it easy for subcontractor bids, quotes and construction takeoffs.
  • Pool schematics including: depth details, equipment list and in-floor cleaning schematic (if applicable)
  • Your plans sent to you in a PDF format, also found in your BYOP portal. Easy to attach/forward to subs and pool professionals.
  • Pool Equipment Quote W/ Spec Sheet
  • Pool Sequence/Bid Sheet


BYOP will also review planning considerations, including your home’s construction access, city or county setback requirements and evaluate utility considerations.

BYOP will provide you with a pool construction drawing and plan for your review and approval. Once you approve the plan sheet BYOP will upload into the BYOP portal for the bidding process.  The portal is designed to provide you with a baseline (1 bid per phase of construction) for you to understand the costs associated with your pool project.  It is your responsibility to acquire additional bids, if needed. 


Once you have approved your plan sheet and your project costs, BYOP will provide you with an application(s) for your submittal to your municipality (city or county) for a residential pool and/or spa permit, if applicable.   The standard engineering detail may or may not be applicable to your pool project.  Based on your plan specifications, features, options and/or site requirements, you may need additional engineering, both structural and civil engineering (drainage and grading retention) plans.

During your sub-contractor bid and selection process you can request a bid for these additional engineering requirements at your cost.  Your project costs may change because of  these project engineering requirements.  You must provide the additional details to your pool sub-contractors and your municipality as part of your permit submittal.

You may elect to make two revisions to your pool plan sheet during the planning or bid process.  Any additional changes may require an additional design fee based on the amount of required design work.  Additionally, if you make a change to your pool, it’s features and/or it’s position in the yard may require a revised plan for re-submittal to your city or county.  You understand that a change to an approved permit will require additional costs for engineering details, site plans, drainage & grading plans and fees with your municipality.

Your fee is non-refundable once you commence the planning and design process.  You may choose to put your plan on hold at any point in the process (pre-construction) or choose a pool builder or management consultant. BYOP is not responsible for repayment of your fee or any services not used as part of your plan package purchase.

You understand that BYOP is not responsible for any permit fees, engineering fees and fees associated with submittal, revisions and approval of your pool project. You must arrange to pick up and pay for all fees associated with your pool or project requirements.


Customer understands he or she is designing and building his or her  own pool. BYOP is not a contractor and is not responsible for the planning, permitting, engineering or construction process.  The customer is responsible for the supervision and management of each phase of his or her pool construction project.
