You have decided to take the plunge and build a swimming pool!  Knowing what to look for when choosing a swimming pool builder in Kelowna and the Okanagan will help you make a more informed choice.


  1. Find a swimming pool builder that has a professional place of business.  When a builder has a place of business it can show you that they have financial stability and have made an investment into their business.


  1. Find out how long they have been in business, how many pools they have build over the years?  How many swimming pools did they build last year?  Make sure you choose a swimming pool company that has been in business for a long time; this is a good indicator that they have a good track record.


  1. Can they provide you with references from previous customers?  Any reputable builder will be more than happy to give you a reference list.


  1. Look for a builder that takes educational classes in pool building and design.  You want someone that keeps current in the industry.  This will also tell you that the builder looks to improve themselves and makes an investment in their career.


  1. A reputable builder will provide you with proof they have Work Compensation and also General Liability insurance.


  1. Ask to see warranties and make sure they are in writing.  Read them very carefully and discuss them with the swimming pool contractor.


  1. If the price seems too good to be true it probably is!  To build a quality swimming pool it does take money.  Choosing the cheapest pool builder is not always the best choice, in the end it could end up costing you more.


  1. When you are quoted a price from a swimming pool builder make sure to find out exactly what is included in that price and ask them to provide that information in writing.
