Build on an empty block save $1000’s!

June 18, 2018

It’s been said that swimming pools are part of the Great Australian Lifestyle, and a lot of home-buyers look for a house with a pool. If their budget can’t cover it just yet, they may buy a home with a yard, or build their home first, intending to install a pool later. But … did you know building your pool at the same time as your yard could save you money? Plus, constructing on an empty lot gives you much more scope for inground pool designs.

At Blue Haven pools, we don’t just install and maintain standard ready-made pools. We can visit your site and work with you to build a customised pool from scratch in any size, shape, or style you like. Our pools can be salt-water, chlorine, or minerally sanitised, and we have models in concrete and fibreglass, and we can install a linear lap pool or a natural-looking site with rock gardens, waterfalls, slides, and infinity edges.


Save thousands on your pool build

Between January and August every year, we offer pool-building services for vacant lots. Our professional swimming pool builder will construct your pool before the rest of your home is being built. This is more convenient than the usual post-construction pool build that requires workers being in-and-out of your home and having an unusable yard in the meantime.

On average, installing inground concrete pools runs between $35,000 and $100,000, while an inground fibreglass pool is more affordable at $25,000 to $75,000. Above ground, pool installations range from $3,500 to $6,500 for a DIY kit, with an additional $2,000 for optional wooden decking.

Start at our showroom

In comparison, Blue Haven Pools builds residential swimming pools on empty blocks for under $20,000. The shell itself – whether it’s concrete or fibreglass – costs just $19,990. Fibreglass pool shells are pre-moulded, so if you want a personalised design, visit our showroom, and we’ll do a free 30-minute consultation where we can talk about a concrete pool shell – reinforced with steel – in any shape you like, up to 21 square metres.

Weather-allowing, we can build your pool shell in a week, and we’ll include pool heaters, underwater lights, three entry steps, a pool ledge, and a bond beam. Our pricing includes excavation, project management, and labour. There’s an extra fee for pool finishing, which involves installing the filter pump, floor finish, coping, accessories, and manual testing kit.


Less time, less money

Finishing costs start at $5,999, and you’d have to source your selected coping, though we can install it for you if you like. We offer river granules for pool flooring, and we’ll lay them by hand, giving your pool that luxurious touch. So, in essence, you’ll have a glorious, fully-functional concrete pool for as little as $26,000.

That’s almost ten thousand dollars below the industry average, and instead of getting a round or rectangular pool, you can work with our in-house architects to pick an exceptionally eye-catching design – it’s up to you!. So, give us a call today, and remember, your one-week build has to be completed before August 31st, so get in touch now!

To save thousands of dollars and man-hours on your new home pool build, call Blue Haven Pools today on 13 20 25.
