Pool Construction Timeline

The Armond Aquatech Pools Process

The length of your pool construction process depends on the design and scope of the work. A typical pool construction process will take 4-6 weeks. More involved projects can take 8-12 weeks. Only after a completing a site visit to analyze your property and an overall project plan is developed, including all desired options, can a more accurate timeline be estimated. Many of you are aware of local township requirements and the time involved in obtaining a permit. In some cases it takes longer to pull a permit than it does to build the pool. Your Armond Pools design consultant will be happy to guide you through this process.

General Construction Timeline

The first step is the Permit Phase. Most townships require a certified engineering plan detailing metes and bounds, topography, impervious calculations and, in some cases, storm water management. It can take 2-4 weeks for this plan to be developed and submitted, then another 2-4 weeks for the township to review the plan and grant the grading permit. Once the grading permit is approved it typically takes another 1-2 weeks to obtain the building permit.
