Only The Best Material


Let’s get one thing straight, Swimmin Holes can help save you money on a pool, what that means is we can help you get a high end pool at a reduced cost, we cannot build low cost pools, we don’t use any cheap material or pool products we only use the best material obtainable to the swimming pool industry. If your looking for a pool that takes care of itself, what we mean by that is if you want your pool to test it’s own water and electronically make and add chlorine when it needs it, correct the PH when it needs it, add water when it needs it or let water out when it rain a lot, has a robotic cleaner, maybe some waterfalls and/or deck-jets and/or raised beam with sheer descents and/or infinity edge with the giant sun-shelf or even a cave with all of this being remote controlled and will last 50 years without having to be resurfaced and a stamped concrete deck, than we can save you a lot of money.  WE CANNOT HELP YOU GET A CHEAP POOL CHEAPER!!!!!!! Unless you are interested in our supervised installation program, where we make sure you build your own pool the proper way

Swimmin Holes Saves You Money

How It Works

   Swimmin Holes will save you Thousands of dollars by helping you do away with the contractor. The guy that make all the extra money for doing almost nothing, and sometimes nothing expect making one phone call to pass the job on to some one else, but the contractor still gets his pockets full of your hard earned money. Swimmin Holes will help you be your own contractor, even If you don’t want to lift a finger for the entire construction process, Swimmin Holes can help you keep Thousands of your dollars to use for something else, and you will have the pool of your dreams. This is how it works, we figure out what you want, where you want it, and how much it will cost, for free (Up to this point our time is free all this won’t cost you a dime). Than Swimmin Holes will do the paper work for you to get the permit. The paper work to get the permit includes structural drawing approved by a civil engineer, plotting the location of the pool on the land plat(plat provided by homeowner), and layout at the site, filling out all necessary forms, Home-owner to sign as the contractor and Swimmin Holes will deliver them to the appropriate office(s),Homeowner to pick up and pay for permit(s), for a fee, it takes approx 12 hours time to achieve the entire process, our consultant rate of $65.00 per hour multiplied by 12 is $780.00 paid in advance(This is to ensure we get paid for our time, this is the only advance payment you will ever make to Swimmin Holes). Rather than paying a contracted price you can buy the specialty swimming pool material through Swimmin Holes at the low price of 20% above our cost which is less than wholesale, the material is shipped directly from the distributor to your home you don’t pay for the material until the time of delivery. (Attached is Swimmin Holes material cost pricing list of some commonly used items.) All other material to be used for the construction you pay for at cost Swimmin Holes doesn’t a dime on it. After the pool perimeter forms are installed, space allowing, a large excavator will come to your site and dig the hole fast, you will pay the experienced owner/operator directly; or just for the machine rental and we will operate the equipment, Swimmin Holes won’t add anything on to the bill.   Swimmin Holes will be on site overseeing and doing all the hand work. The Shotcret crew is handled the same way Swimmin Holes will let a quality shotcrete or gunite firm that we have been using for years know when to come shoot your pool for you (The majority of the swimming pool installation firms in this country do not have the equipment to install swimming pool shells they sub contract this phase to a specialty contractor), you pay them directly and you get to pay a contractor rate, Swimmin Holes won’t add anything on to the bill, we will be there to oversee the shoot to ensure everything goes the way it should.  When the pool is ready to be plastered Swimmin Holes will let a quality plastering firm know when to plaster your pool for you (The majority of the swimming pool installation firms do not have the equipment to install the final finish of the pool they sub contract this phase to a specialty contractor), you pay them directly, Swimmin Holes won’t add anything on to the bill we will be their to oversee the plastering to ensure everything goes the way it should. One of the other hyperlinks is for a time schedule, that time schedule is a very accurate accounting of the time needed to complete the phases of the construction. If you don’t want to get involved Swimmin Holes will charge you by the hour to build your pool. The hourly rate for a three man crew is $105.00 per hour. The rate for a two man crew is $85.00 per hour. Our hourly rate is collected on a daily basis. When the Shotcret and the plastering are performed the rate is only $65.00 per hour .Swimmin Holes will make a little profit on the specialty material. And we get paid for our time worked. You will save thousands.   My name is Kevin Boylen I have over 40 years of experience I will be the one overseeing / building your pool.   Swimmin Holes will come out to your home for free and work up the total price for the job including many options that you can choose from. We use only the very best material available to the swimming pool industry and we make sure it is installed properly to insure you get years and years of enjoyment and pleasure from your Swimmin Hole.
