1. GET YOUR ESTIMATE QUICKER
You may have heard it said, “When the sun comes out, people want a swimming pool.” That’s true! When it’s hot and sunny we are busy building and remodeling pools and spas, but we’re equally as busy meeting with potential new clients. We’re happy to do it, but with the influx of calls we receive during the warm seasons sometimes the wait to meet with an estimator and get your proposal can take longer than desired. Instead, try calling during the cold seasons when builders across the country generally receive fewer calls since folks are most likely focused on staying warm. That’s usually the best time to book an appointment. Don’t let the rain stop you!
2. GET YOUR POOL IN TIME FOR THE HEAT: PLAN AHEAD!
We love turning people’s backyards into living paradises. But sometimes folks wait a little too late to call, and their pool doesn’t get built until the summer season is half over. Plan several months ahead of spring. Call to book an appointment when during the fall and winter so that you can have a nice splashy pool in time for the heat.
3. RAIN WASHES AWAY CONCERNS OF DROUGHT
Folks in California tend to be more conscious of water usage than other neighboring states. But the truth is that water loss from a swimming pool is less than watering your lawn. READ: Water agencies are learning pools aren’t a big factor during drought. Regardless of the facts some people are still skeptical. They feel local agencies may restrict water usage to the point of preventing their dreams from becoming reality. One thing seems to be certain: worries of drought get washed away with the wet weather. And rightly so… pools conserve water. And with all the rain we’re getting officials won’t soon be putting moratoriums on any pool building in the near future.
4. “BANKED” WATER MAKES IT CHEAPER TO FILL YOUR POOL
I heard an interesting point being made the other day. The rainy weather has saved residents money who in other drier years would be spending their hard earned cash on watering their lawns. Building a pool can use your “banked” water to fill it with. Not only that, but as we pointed out in Point #3, swimming pools use less water than irrigation. So does a year with a rainy season make it cheaper to fill your pool? We think so!
5. SPEND TIME ON YOUR DESIGN
It was pouring rain this weekend in Southern California – one of the worst storms in 20 years I heard. For many of us it gives us excuses to relax and devote time to things we may otherwise not find the chance to enjoy. Some folks bake, others may read. Why not cozy up with your iPad and a cup of hot chocolate and Browse Our Gallery? Other idea sites such as Houzz are also great resources to consider. While you’re relaxing and listening to the rain… Plan… Design… Imagine… what could be yours this year – a sanctuary of escape of your own. Give us a call, your backyard paradise is just around the corner.
