If you are an inground swimming pool owner, chances are you are already involved in the maintenance and care of your pool. Or you may have a contract with a company that comes weekly to clean the pool, adjust the chemicals and take care of repairs as they crop up. Perhaps you handle the cleaning and chemicals yourself and just call in a professional swimming pool repair company when you know that you have a major problem. Maybe you have just purchased an older home that has the swimming pool you’ve always wanted but it is old and looks unappealing. Weather it is your own aging swimming pool, or one in a home you’ve just purchased, you want to remodel and upgrade it to add to the asthetics and ambiance of your backyard, conserve energy, and increase your enjoyment.

If your swimming pool is between 15-20 years old, now is the time to undertake a total remodel and upgrade of your inground pool, equipment, coping, tile, lighting and decking. When starting such a project, begin at the foundation. In this case we’re talking about all of your pool equipment, wiring and pipes. Any possible swimming pool leaks must be repaired and the source eliminated before work is undertaken. This includes a total evaluation of your equipment. If minor pool repairs have been made over the years, now is the time to go ahead and purchase new pool equipment if necessary or do a first class repair job on what you already have such as pool skimmers and your swimming pool motor. If you have a heated pool or lights in the pool, now is the time to bring your swimming pool’s electrial wiring up to code.

Next comes the actual cosmetic repair of your swimming pool. If you have a fiberglass pool, damage such as chips, cracks and discolorations are usually limited to the top layer which is a kind of gel coat. That kind of damage can be repaired by a company that basically resurfaces your pool with one of several processes that would be similar to painting the surface layer of the fiberglass. The more common gunite or concrete swimming pool in need of repair usually presents with chipped plaster, cracks, discoloration, or a wearing down of the plaster through erosion. The proper swimming pool repair service can resurface your pool so that it looks brand new. Enjoy!

How much does a pool cost?

Since Pool Captain builds and installs in-ground custom concrete (gunite) and fiberglass swimming pools in Flagler & Volusia Counties we are unable to give firm quotes via email or phone. This includes those people looking for “just a basic pool” or “just something to get wet in”.

There are many different phases and facets of swimming pool construction that affect the cost. For example some issues that affect construction and final cost of your pool are:

Pool surface area size?
What type of pool? Infinity edge, fiberglass, gunite, lagoon style, geometric?
Pool deck area size?
What type of decking? Pavers? Acrylic Decking? Stamped Concrete? Flagstone?
Spa or no spa?
Water features?- waterfalls, spill-overs, sculptures, deck-jets…
Deck raises?
Beach entry?
Zero Entry?
Screen enclosure size (footprint, roof shape, and wall height)?
Fencing?
The type of soil on your property will determine whether or not we need to bring in “good soil” to back-fill with.
The amount of area we have to access your property with our construction machinery
landscaping.
Is there a sprinkler system currently running through the area where the pool is going?
Do any trees or stumps need to be removed?

We do not like to “guess” or “ball-park” a figure without seeing the actual construction area. We think it is unfair if we quote low over the phone then come to find out there is more to the actual construction and must charge you more. Pool Captain believes in being honest and fair with their customers, so we take some additional time in order to give you an accurate, precise quoted amount with no “surprises”.
