Selecting a Fiberglass Pool Dealer
- Don’t just go with the first dealer you find. We recommend talking to a few. It’s essential that you feel comfortable with them. After all, these folks will be working in your backyard for at least a couple of weeks.
- Get multiple estimates. It’s helpful to get more than one estimate to know that you are on track and not missing something significant in communicating your wants and needs and the dealer’s capabilities.
- Ask for referrals. A quality dealer should have referrals at the ready when asked. You can also go online for reviews. Either way, make sure that the referrals or reviews are recent and not from several years ago.
- Talk to other pool owners. Neighbors or friends with fiberglass pools are good sources. And so are home builders and landscape architects as they often subcontract pool dealers.
- Check online review sites. Beyond Google and Facebook, there are services like the Better Business Bureau or Home Advisor that can help distinguish the best pool dealers from their competition.
- Talk to pool manufacturers. You may have zeroed in on a pool and pool manufacturer you like in your research. A fiberglass pool manufacturer can let you know what dealer services your area and get the two of you connected.
