One Pool at a Time
The Sooner You Call
The Sooner You Swim!
STATE OF THE POOL INDUSTRY UPDATE
We used to have Feast or Famine economic situations. We now have a hybrid situation. There is absolutely a feast available for any pool builder that wants to sell a record number of pools. This however has led to a famine of labor and materials. Currently instead of 3-5 days between crews or subcontractors it's now 3-5 weeks, maybe 3-6 months to complete, we don't really know anymore and it's still getting worse for many of the trades. At the rate this is going there will probably be a vast amount of pools that will eventually go "work stop" for an indefinite amount of time. There are a few builders out there still trying to sell as many pools as they can with no regard for time frame or the customer. This may not end well.
The new subdivisions are exploding here in the S.E. Valley and a vast amount of those new homeowners also want new pools.
As a result of all of this we are now at a point where we are not going to build again until things eventually stabilize along with the new housing market and that is going to take some time.
I do have another builder I can refer you to that is still continuing on for the time being if you still want to move forward.
SO WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BUILD? MAYBE NOT NOW. THINGS WE CAN DO NOW.
If you have already called a few builders only to be told "call us back in 6 months" or "we're not taking on anymore projects at this time" then you will have some understanding of what I was explaining above.
So what if we "reserve" part of your property for the pool and go ahead now with any of your other plans for a Paver Patio Deck, BBQ Grill, maybe a Hot Tub etc.
We can install any gas, electrical or water sleeves and conduits needed for the pool later. It's never good when someone decides to do a pool after a lot of hardscape or other features have been installed and access to these utilities have been cutoff.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS WE CAN DO NOW:
So Here’s How it Works
You tell me about all of your Swimming Pool or Project Plans. I answer all of your questions. I can help you with any ideas you may need. We go over all of your options and the potential costs involved. I get all of the measurements needed to do a construction plan, take a lot pictures of all of the critical items on your property. We set our follow up appointment to go over the plan and pricing that I will bring back.
I bring back a completed plan with the calculated cost, all according to what we’ve gone over in the initial meeting. You’ll see if you like it all, I explain all of the costs line by line. If you need anything adjusted, or if in the mean time you’ve come up with any other ways that you want to do the pool, we can make those adjustments. If you come up with changes while I’m gone just update me so I can bring the plan back the way you want it.
Once we have a plan and price that you are happy with we can do a contract and down payment and get you moved into construction.
We dig the pool, next is plumbing, then rebar and electrical.
Then we have a pre-gunite inspection and then we shoot the concrete shell. After that we do tile, coping and decking.
Then we have a pre-plaster inspection and then we pebble to interior of the pool shell.
Meet the Owners
Ed & Chai Long
Ed is on the Job at Every Phase
You will have to text before calling. The robo calls are so relentless we don’t answer unknown numbers anymore but will return a text or message pretty quickly.
Ed will be the person that meets with you and works with you to get a design and plan together. He will also be the one that paints the pool out on the ground to be sure you like everything and so the pool diggers know what to dig. When everything is done by Ed with no salesperson in between nothing gets lost in the translation and the pool will be done exactly as we planned.
ED MEETS EACH CREW
Ed meets each crew when they show up to do their phase to make sure they are all on the same sheet. They go over all the fine details and if it’s a critical phase he checks back with them again during the day and sometimes again before they are done. This is why we only work local here in the S.E. Valley. We’re on the job too much to be all over both counties.
WE ARE ALWAYS THERE FOR YOU
Ed can always answer any of your questions when he is out there with the crews. You will have his number and can call or text him just about anytime day or night. Late night communications might have a delayed response but we really are there for you more than anyone else would normally be.
Give it a try.

START TO FINISH SUPERVISION
Here is Ed putting the finishing touch on a pool plugging in the Venturi Powered Surface Returns during the pool equipment start up. Most companies hire many different people to do all this construction over-site and to handle all of these loose ends. We have found that only working local and taking care of these things personally works the best for us.
