Artesian Custom Pools answers some of the most popular questions asked by customers regarding pool cost, construction, and maintenance. Please click on the question to reveal the answer.
How much does a pool cost?
A basic pool from Artesian Custom Pools starts around $40,000. There is virtually an endless amount of possibilities as to the type of pool we can build for you, so establishing the exact cost is unknown until we have determined the size, shape, features, etc. During our initial meeting we will establish these parameters and formulate a quotation that reflects your individual project’s cost. We work with each customer to deliver a product that meets your individual taste as well as budget considerations.
How much money is required down to start the project?
Artesian Custom Pools only requires a small down payment to start the permit process of your project. Once we have a signed construction agreement we start immediately to finalize design and submit for permits.
How long does it take to get a permit?
Generally speaking it takes between one and three weeks from the submittal date to receive a swimming pool building permit. There are many factors that influence the permit issuance time including your electrical provider and city in which the project is located, scope of work to be completed, homeowners associations and the time of year.
How long will it take to build our pool?
In general it takes between six and eight weeks to build a pool. The complexity of the project, the amenities included landscaping, retaining walls, fireplaces, BBQ’s, arbors),product availability and weather conditions all play a role in determining completion time. Rest assured that Artesian Custom Pools will work diligently to complete your project in the least amount of time required.
How long does it take to fill up our pool?
It usually takes between 24 and 48 hours. City water vs. well, pressure at the nozzle and size of the pool are all elements that will determine fill time. The pool filling process is initiated immediately after a plaster finish is applied and continues uninterrupted until he pool is filled entirely. A Pebble Tech finish is much different as it requires an acid wash the day following application, and then the filling process starts. Filling your pool is an important step in the construction process and needs to be done correctly (uninterrupted) to eliminate finish problems.
Will we need a pool service to maintain our pool?
This really depends on the time you have to spend on pool maintenance.On average it should only take about a half hour or so per week to monitor, brush, empty skimmer baskets as well as debris bags and adjust chemical levels. Periodically, cleaning filters and other chemical delivery systems will be necessary. Your pool is a big investment and requires routine maintenance to keep it looking and performing perfectly. If you are unable to take on the responsibility then a professional pool service may be required.
