The Best Time To Plan Your Pool Installation in 2023

Is 2023 the year for your backyard pool installation? Fabulous!


Although the Rising Sun Pool team generally recommends scheduling your pool installation process during the fall – as an autumn installation will save you stress, time, AND money – there is still plenty of time to install your pool before the 2023 Raleigh, NC warm season.


But if you’re hoping to be able to swim in your in-ground or above-ground pool come summer 2023, you better act fast! The ideal window for pre-summer pool installation is somewhere between January and March.


Why start your pool-build in winter?


The pool installation process is not quite as simple as you might think. From the type and design of your pool to pool permits and placement, there is a LOT for you to consider when planning your backyard oasis.


And depending on the type of pool you want to build, you can expect anywhere from a 6-week process to a 12-week process.


Therefore, the longer you wait to kickstart your pool installation, the more likely you will be to miss out on any enjoyment of your new luxury pool this summer.


The average wait time to begin installing a pool is typically shorter in winter than in other seasons. It makes sense – it’s chilly outside! Going for a nice, cool swim is that LAST thing on our minds. However, by initiating your pool build in the earlier months of 2023, you’ll ensure your pool will be completely finished and ready for use when temperatures rise into the 80s and 90s.


Plus, installing your pool in early 2023 will give your yard plenty of time to recover from the excavation process before June and July. You will also have a chance to stock up on all the necessary pool accessories and maintenance supplies you need in preparation for swimming season – no rush and no stress!


What happens if you wait until spring?


But what if it’s already spring? Is there ANY chance you’ll be able to start now and finish by summer?


Possibly. It simply comes down to demand.


Spring and summer are considered prime “pool-building season.” Therefore, the Rising Sun Pools’ spring and summer installation schedule is ALWAYS jam-packed…which means, you very well may lose out on your goal to have a summer-ready pool.


However, IF you do start the installation process in spring, you have some good options.
