How Long Does It Take?
New pool construction timelines have increased significantly in recent years due to the extensive scope of many projects that include outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, and covered structures. The length of time for each project depends upon the city’s plan review process, the scope of the project, and the availability of materials selected, such as travertine or marble. You can estimate that construction may take 4-8 months, which is why it always recommended to get started early.

Do You Build In My Area?
We have 2 design centers with display pools located in Murphy and Rockwall and typically build within a 70-mile radius of Dallas/Fort Worth.
How Much Time Is Required to Take Care of a Swimming Pool?
With innovative technology and equipment today, owning a pool is easier than ever. Most owners will choose some sort of automation to operate their pool, which will be set on a consistent schedule. You can estimate to spend 5-10 minutes per week doing minimal pool maintenance or you may opt to have our maintenance department clean your pool weekly, so all you have to do is spend your time relaxing.
Will a Pool Increase the Value of My Home?
Yes. Most studies show that a pool will increase the value of your home anywhere between 5% and 15% and tremendously aids in the resale of your home to prospective buyers.
What About Is There Any Truth to Ads Promising Pools at Very Low Prices?
It is possible to build a pool at a low price, however, equipment, structural elements, and craftsmanship will all be compromised. Poor quality construction will undermine the integrity of the pool and possibly put your family at risk. At Hobert, we are committed to delivering a quality product that will fit within your budget and achieve your backyard dream.
What About Warranties?
Warranties are extremely important and Hobert Pools will stand behind its warranties, especially the structural guarantee. Hobert Pools has been in business for 45 years and will continue to operate well into the future with the same attention to quality and integrity.
