It’s Already May. Is It Too Late To Install A Pool?


Is it too late to install a pool? Rising Sun Pools North Carolina

If you’re anything like us, you’re probably thinking… Wasn’t it just Christmas? Where did March and April go? When you’re busy, you don’t have the time to worry about your summer entertainment plans.

We totally get it!

But, now that the weather is warming up, you’ve probably just remembered your New Year’s Resolution to install an in-ground pool this year. But is May too late to put a new pool in your backyard?

The challenge of spring in-ground pool installs

In the swimming pool industry, we refer to late spring and early summer as the peak “pool-building season.” And the bottleneck makes total sense. Raleigh area homeowners just like you realized in March or April that they needed to act fast in order to build their dream pools before the end of summer.

That’s why Rising Sun Pools’ spring and summer schedules are always jam-packed. More often than not, our team’s availability frees up significantly during fall and winter months.

When everything goes perfectly according to plan, you can still expect to wait up to 8 (or even 12) weeks from the start of installation. There’s a lot to consider when building a pool, from the initial design to the landscape planning to the excavation, plumbing, electricity, and permitting.

Consider scheduling an autumn installation

Now, you can probably see why we recommend ‌our customers plan their pool installation well in advance.

Chances are, if you call us now, we will ‌start creating a game plan for autumn right away. You can begin preparing your yard for the install over the summer, and come fall time, there will be nothing to slow us down.

BUT… if you are dead-set on a pool installation this summer, you have one more excellent option…

Go for an above-ground pool

It’s not what you had in mind, but there are some fantastic benefits of above-ground pools. Not only can Rising Sun Pools install them easily and efficiently, but the process can have you swimming this summer.

And the benefits don’t stop there. From the affordable price to the enhanced safety features and low maintenance requirements, an above-ground pool may be just the thing your family needs this summer!
