Choosing the Right East Tennessee Pool Builder

Choosing the Right East Tennessee Pool Builder

Adding a swimming pool to your backyard is a smart investment, but also a big decision. So, it’s important to always choose a reliable, experienced East Tennessee pool builder. At Campbell’s Pool and Spa, we have been building pools for nearly 50 years and can offer some pretty solid advice on choosing the right pool builder.


Word of Mouth

Perhaps the best referral is from someone who’s already worked with the company. Start your search for the best pool builder by asking around to see if you know someone’s who already worked with them. They will be a reliable source for valuable information.


Inground Pool Options Offered

Choosing a pool builder that offers a wide-variety of options is always a good decision. At Campbell’s, we offer the three most popular types (vinyl, fiberglass, and gunite) of inground pools. Each has their own advantages and we can help you choose the right one for you. Choosing another East Tennessee pool builder that doesn’t offer all three inground pool types will definitely reduce the chances of getting your perfect backyard swimming pool.


Certifications and Affiliations

With so many people willing to charge you to dig a hole in your backyard, it’s important to choose a pool builder with the right certifications and affiliations. Standards have been set to ensure the overall reputation of the swimming pool industry and reputable pool builders always strive to go above and beyond. Campbell’s Pool and Spa is a proud member of the leading pool industry groups, so you can feel confident knowing you’ll get only the highest quality.


Actual Business Location and Number of Years in Business

When choosing the right East Tennessee pool builder, take a look at their showroom. They should have an established brick-and-mortar business location. Avoid builders that work out of their house or truck – as they could easily disappear with your money without completing the installation of your pool.

Also, how long have they been in business? If you want to know you’re dealing with a great pool builder, choose one that’s been doing it for a long time. We’ve been doing it for nearly 50 years and have had the pleasure of building thousands of pools for folks all over East Tennessee.


References and Testimonials

Get references from your pool builder. Ask for a list of happy customers and make a few phone calls to verify your pool builder performed a satisfactory job. A trustworthy pool builder should have no problem providing you with some references. In fact, they should be happy to.


Do Your Homework

The internet easily allows you to find all kinds of information about companies. Go to their website and research any potential pool builder. Check out pools they’ve built, read about their history, and see what kind of equipment they use. They should have a contact page that allows you to easily reach out and get quick answers to any questions you might have.  

By following these simple suggestions you can help ensure that the East Tennessee pool builder you choose can be trusted to build the swimming pool you have been dreaming about. We pride ourselves in quality work at Campbell’s Pool and Spa, so contact us today to let us help you build your dream pool!
