FAQ

How much does a typical pool cost?

Hydro-Dynamic Services offers basic pool packages beginning at $60,000 plus utilities and decking.

What sizes and configurations are available?

Because we custom build all of our pools, an unlimited number of sizes and configurations are available. We can design and build anything from a simple backyard spa to a commercial, recreational water-park.

Why does Hydro-Dynamics build only custom, reinforced-concrete pools and spas?

Concrete pools are the most durable pools available. With reinforcing steel and high-strength shotcrete, the integrity of the shell can be maintained for a lifetime of use. All of the pools that HDS builds are custom engineered for the climate and soil conditions found in the Rocky Mountains and Colorado.

Is it difficult to keep a swimming pool or spa clean?

Residential pool maintenance is easily learned. However, if your time is short, HDS is happy to perform pool maintenance through our professional service department to keep your pool functional and your water sparkling clean.

How long does it take to construct a pool?

From excavation to final filling and chemical balancing, we can complete your pool in 6 to 7 weeks. Permitting duration varies by jurisdiction, it can add days to the process; however, once we start a project we utilize every available day to finish.

Should I consider an automatic cover?

An auto-cover will add safety, conserve heat, keeps leaves and dirt out of the water, and stops the loss of water through evaporation. Though expensive, the benefits of an auto-cover are definitely worth considering.

Where should the equipment be located?

The pumps, filters, and heater should be placed at or below the water level and as close to the pool/spa as possible. Indoor equipment rooms are preferable, but not necessary since the equipment is designed for outdoor placement.

Is a pool a good idea in a drought-prone Colorado?

Yes! A covered swimming pool will actually require less water to operate than if that same area of your yard was green grass.

Safety First!

Around the deck and in the water, the rule for pools is always safety first. Your custom pool conforms to both the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP) safety guidelines. Following are some safety tips for both children and adults.
  • Never leave children alone in or near the pool.
  • Teach children and others who use the pool how to swim.
  • Do not run on or around the pool deck.
  • Never hold someone under the water, even for a second.
  • Install a fence around the pool deck area to separate it from the rest of the property.
  • Keep rescue equipment and a phone near the pool for emergencies.
  • Learn CPR in case of an emergency.
  • Remove toys from the pool after use.
  • Post safety signs and instructions around the pool.
  • For commercial pools, always have a lifeguard on duty.
  • Never swim without a lifeguard or adult present.
  • Do not mix alcohol and swimming.
  • Do not dive into shallow water.
  • Keep the pool clean to avoid contamination.
