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

In exchange for your payment, BYOP will provide you with:

Pool design with one revision/modification, phone & email communication support, a color conceptual rendering of your pool design, Links to standard engineering pool or spa detail companies (when applicable, Paid by Homeowner), a construction plan sheet with pool specifications that you will use with and by your selected subcontractors to bid and build your pool. When applicable, an application for submittal to your specific municipality (city or county) for a residential pool and/or spa permit.  

BYOP will provide you with a pool construction sheet (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.  You understand that it is your responsibility to acquire additional bids if needed. We have also included a change order form in your personal BYOP Portal that we recommend you use in case of any changes you may make during your construction process.

Once you have approved your plan sheet and are comfortable with your project costs, BYOP will provide you with an application(s) for your submittal to your specific 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 possibly civil engineering (drainage, grading retention) plans. During your sub-contractor bid and selection process you can request a bid for these additional engineering requirements. (From 1 of our qualified Engineering firm)  Your project costs may and possibly will change based on the requirements provided by 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 one revision 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 design work required as part of the change.  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 start 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 or even permanently place your pool project on hold.  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 engineering, permits and/or fees associated with submittal, revisions and approval of your pool project. The customer must make arrangements to pick up and pay for all fees associated with your pool or project requirements.

The premier package landscape design option does not include the permitting or details need for the construction, permitting or engineering of any masonry, HOA fees or additional site plans need for the permitting of ramadas, pergolas or shade structures.

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