Once you’ve decided to have a swimming pool installed in your Austn home, how long can you expect to wait until it’s fully installed and ready for you and your family to enjoy?

As you might imagine, the Austin pool installation process takes a bit of time given all the details involved. That said, some projects take longer than others. Here’s roughly what you can expect when it comes to the timeline for your pool installation.


The most basic and obvious step in the pool installation process is digging the hole where your pool will eventually be. All that dirt that’s being dug out and excavated can take around a week or so to complete. 

Keep in mind that you’ll need a permit to do this digging, so you’ll have to account for the time it takes to obtain that permit before the digging can begin.

Electrical and Plumbing

The lighting, heating, pool pump, jets, and other features that keep your pool operational require electrical and plumbing lines to be run, which takes roughly one to two weeks to install. 

Frame Installation

Your Austin pool builder will lay a steel frame to provide your pool with the strength and durability needed for a long-lasting structure. This task takes about a week or two to complete.

Pool Installation 

Finally, the installation of the pool will take place once the foundation has been laid. The time it takes to complete this step depends on a few things, including the size and complexities of the pool design. That said, you’re looking at about one to three weeks to complete this phase.

Surrounding Pool Area Features

A pool area isn’t complete without some decking and landscaping. This can be as simple or complex as you want it to be, which is why the time needed to complete this step can vary to a great degree. 

When you consider all the steps mentioned, you could have your pool ready in as little as a month, or to up to a few months to complete. Your Austin pool builder will guide you every step of the way to keep you in the loop.
