Frequently Asked Questions for New Pool Construction
Gunite vs. Other Pools - What's the difference?
MEMPHIS POOL builds only gunite pools. Gunite is a seamless, superior strength concrete construction applied under high pressure from a special machine, then finished with the interior surface of your choice. No other pool can match the long term durability, creative designs or beauty of a gunite pool. Gunite will cost more than vinyl-lined or fiberglass pools, but the added value of gunite is something most homeowners can easily see and appreciate. Your gunite pool will last much longer than a vinyl-lined
or fiberglass pool.
How long does it take to build a pool?
Most of our pools take 30-60 days to complete from the day we first excavate, weather permitting. Our gunite pools are custom handcrafted on-site. They are very labor and material intensive, involving many different steps and specialists to work on the project. The finished product is well-worth the time. Your gunite pool will maintain its beauty and functionality for years to come.
When can you start?
As you might expect from any quality pool firm, there are generally other pools already on our schedule. We understand your excitement and desire to go swimming now; however, we want you to be sure your pool meets your long-term dreams. Our design/sales representative can give you an idea of how many dry working days our crews currently have scheduled. Be assured, a pool from MEMPHIS POOL is worth the wait.
How do we pay for the pool?
Most homeowners find a significant tax advantage and interest advantage by obtaining a home equity loan through their bank. MEMPHIS POOL can recommend an institution if you don't have one
You will pay a 30% deposit when your contract agreement is finalized. Then, you'll make progress payments as the pool is built. 50% when the gunite work is done, 15% when the decking is complete, and the final 5% when all work has been completed as per the agreement and to your satisfaction.
