Design For Your Lot

Different in every city, town, and village, we start by helping to decode lot setbacks and easements to determine the appropriate size, shape, and location for your swimming pool.

Get Permits & Approvals

From municipal and building permits to Home Owners Association blessing, all new pools require a series of permits and approvals before construction begins.

Coordinate Trade Partners

An important last step, we help coordinate the electricians, landscapers, masons, and other trade partners who are involved with each new custom pool we build.

An Inclusive Installation Process

There are 10 steps in our new pool construction process – each essential for the successful outcome of your project. Perhaps that’s why we prefer to only service pools we’ve built – because we know that comprehensive quality and skilled workmanship during construction means a better pool for years to come. Our inclusive installation process includes key elements like:

  • Site Access, Zoning, Permitting, and HOA Drawings
  • Inclusive allowances for Coping and Fence
  • Coordination of all mechanical subcontractors and services
  • Site preparation and excavation with Bob’s-owned equipment prevents delays
  • Water, system startup, and initial chemical treatments
  • Equipment and maintenance training
  • Coordination of landscaping and masonry subcontractors
  • First winterization and installation of winter pool cover at closing included, as well as first opening

From site preparation to closing your pool at the end of your first year – Bob’s Pool Builders provides an inclusive experience.
