You have been thinking of installing a backyard oasis for a while, and you are now ready to take the plunge and buy a pool.  The question in your mind now is whether to buy a pool in the summer or winter.  It all comes down to what time you are ready. This can vary for different people.

What you need to know is that before you buy a pool, you should have a budget in mind and a basic design and layout of how your pool will look like. All these should preferably be done before the installation begins. You also need to get quotes from several pool contractors long before your installation time. This will allow you to get the best deals.

Here are some advantages and disadvantages you should consider to help you decide which season to buy a pool


Summer is a prime swim season with lots of water activities for the whole family.


Summer typically has hot and dry weather which is easier for contractors to work in. This makes the installation process faster as there are no delays caused by bad weather. Above ground pools have a quick completion date, and you can enjoy a swim in your pool before summer ends.


Pool companies have busy schedules, and it is challenging to get a discount or great deals during summer. Also, materials and labor are also expensive. Finding a pool builder during summer might not be easy, as they have a high workload.


Winter may not be the best swim time for most people, but it is the best time to buy a pool and have it installed.


Pool companies have few customers, and most incentivize customers to do winter installations at reduced prices. This will allow you to buy a pool at a lower price than in summer. Your pool is usually ready for use by the next summer. It gives you time to landscape and plant trees and flowers in your backyard and gives the vegetation time to grow. You can take the time to research on great deals for materials for your patio and deck. Besides, because of the slow season, pool builders are readily available for bookings.


Bad weather may cause delays in the installation process. You also won’t be able to enjoy your new pool until the weather warms up.

Any time of the year is a great time to buy a pool. Once you have considered the pros and cons you can choose a season and book a pool installation that suits your needs. Choose a time which fits into your schedule to avoid inconveniences and frustrations. You can also choose a package that lets the pool company take over the whole project from start to finish, and you can relax and wait for your pool to be ready.
