A swimming pool in your backyard is one of the best possible Christmas presents for you and your family. The weather is great, so this is the time of year when you really want to swim and relax in the water. And what better way to burn off the excess calories we consume over the holidays than by taking a dip in your own private pool? After all, swimming is one of the best all-round forms of exercise you can do, using practically every muscle in the body!

Christmas is also the time when we traditionally catch up with family and friends, some that we might see regularly, and others that perhaps we don’t have much contact with throughout the year. Your pool is the ideal environment for spending quality time and bonding with those you love the best.

But if you want your pool built and ready to use in time for Christmas, it is essential to plan ahead and make sure you are properly prepared.

How to get your pool built in time for Christmas

The summer is the most popular time for getting a backyard swimming pool built, so pool builders are often booked up weeks and even months in advance. Because of this, it is advisable to think about having your pool built much earlier in the year.

By choosing your pool and hiring a pool builder in the winter, you can guarantee availability way ahead of time. This means that work can start quickly and your pool could even be completed by early spring, especially if you choose a fibreglass pool such as those manufactured by Compass Pools Australia. These pools can be installed in a matter of days, while still being as strong and durable as a concrete pool that can take months to install.

Additionally, remember you will need to enlist the help of other contractors, such as a plumber and electrician. By planning your pool project well in advance, you make sure these contractors can coordinate their jobs with the pool builders, so everything can be completed on time and in the right order. This way, your pool will be ready to use before the summer begins, ensuring that you can enjoy it to the full over the Christmas holidays.

All of us at Compass Pools hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
