Having built DRC Pools from the ground up, Dylan spent many years working in the field which enables him to ultimately understand the build and all functions.

Who will I be dealing with during construction? How often will I be updated on the progress of construction?
You will have a single point of contact. We are in constant communication with our clients throughout the construction project. You will often be updated daily as to progress made. At a minimum we will reach out at least 2-3 times per week with updates and we are always here to answer any questions that arise.
Dylan, the owner of DRC Pools, will be your point of contact on your project and work closely with our field superintendents throughout construction. Our expert Field Superintendents have years of experience building both residential and commercial pools.
Just about every city has their own requirements for providing a safety barrier to your pool. Some require fencing, some do not, and some site conditions will require different perimeter protection. Your designer will inform you of your city’s requirements and all options available to you.
After we fill your pool with water, Dylan will go through a start up orientation with you and provide initial chemicals, brush, pole, net and test kit. He will also provide you a thorough explanation of all pumps, systems, and maintenance requirements. We also work very closely with a pool cleaning and start up service that we can refer if that would make your more comfortable.
A properly designed pool and spa should require less than 15-20 minutes of maintenance a week by yourself or a professional.
It depends on the individual situation. We use small sized equipment to obtain access to walk-thru gates. When necessary, we will take down a section of your wall or gates in order to dig the pool and replace it after we finish digging. I am sure that we have a solution to fit your situation.
A difficult site brings out the best in our designer. We specialize in creating unique designs for unique situations and thoroughly enjoy a good challenge, pending the setbacks and codes for each city…anything is typically possible.
Pools and landscapes are among the most frequent home improvements in the nation and can add monetary value as well as perceived value. There is no real answer to this question, some people love pools and only look for homes for sale with pools, while other people only love spas but not pools. There are many variables to this pending each individuals perceived value of what it is worth to them.
All projects are different, but typical DRC Pools projects range from about $100,000 up to $1 million +. Therefore it is important to try and get your budget number in place while in the pre-planning stage. Not only will this help keep everyone on the same page while in design, but it will also allow us to tell you what is and what is not possible to build, it will also help with material selection, and design features. We always want to give you the highest quality product and best design within your budget parameter.
The average project takes 12-16 weeks to complete. More elaborate projects can take up to 6-12 months or more depending on the design, location, size, features, and complexity.
Our base package includes approximately 3-5 changes to your custom 3D Design, pending the complexity of the design sometimes more will be needed. Once the project is awarded and the contract has been signed— all documents, details needed to obtain building permits and for construction of the project will be provided. Additional detailing, engineering, HOA submittals, and renderings will be calculated to the level of detail required. Your project will come with a detailed scope of work showing you exactly what is included and not included. Any 3D design fees paid are credited toward your project total upon signing your contract with us.
Every project is unique. Our competitive design fee will account for the detailed scope of work involved. Contact Us today for a free consultation and we can go from there.
Your design will be completed in phases. First, research will be done to hang the parameters for design. This will include a survey of the existing site and structures if necessary. We will ask for your detailed input at your initial on-site meeting with Dylan regarding the desired form and function of the project and will also need to discuss budget. Next, we will prepare preliminary 3D concept design for your approval. Once the preliminary designs are complete and approved, construction documents will be prepared for permit submittal.
