Why ‘Fast-Building’ Isn’t Better: The Importance of Meticulous Pool Construction

In this world of next-day deliveries and instant gratification, it’s tempting to opt for quick solutions, even when it comes to building a custom pool. However, “fast” does not equal “efficient.” Cutting corners may save time upfront but it could cost you so much more when easily-avoidable issues later arise. At Aqua Blue Pools, we firmly believe that quality should never be sacrificed for speed. 

Cutting Corners Leads to Complications

Whether it be financial, emotional or time-related, your custom pool is an investment. Ensuring you get the job done is not enough. It is imperative you get the job done correctly. By avoiding fast building, you can also avoid these common (and costly) pitfalls:

  • Compromised Structural Integrity: Rushing through the construction process may lead to shortcuts that compromise the structural integrity of the installation. This can result in issues such as leaks, cracks and uneven settling over time.
  • Subpar Materials: Fast-building can mean cutting corners when it comes to materials selection. Using subpar materials may initially lower costs but can lead to the financial burdens of repairs and replacements down the line.
  • Lack of Attention to Detail: Building a custom pool requires careful planning and execution. Speeding through the procedure can result in oversights and mistakes that detract from the overall quality and aesthetics of the finished product.
  • Limited Customization Options: Fast building may also limit your options for customization, as builders prioritize speed over design flexibility. This can result in a cookie-cutter pool that fails to reflect your unique vision and preferences.

A quality pool-building partner will understand this and prioritize craftsmanship in every aspect of the process to avoid these issues that expedient building may yield.
