What Do I Need to Know Before Getting a Custom Pool in Westchester County?

With a custom pool, you can enjoy time at the pool when you want, how you want, and with the look you want, all from the convenience of your backyard. But, the decisions, the process, or even just knowing where to begin can all seem a bit overwhelming. That’s why we invite you to partner with our premier pool building team at Orange County Pools & Spas. Together, we will walk with you from start to finish, making it as simple, stress free, and speedy as possible. What do I need to know before getting a custom pool in Westchester County? Here’s where you should start. 

Custom Pool Building Regulations for the Hudson Valley

Building a new pool in your Hudson Valley backyard requires following the regulations and codes for your local municipality. Some of these local regulations include obtaining a pool permit, getting approval of plans, meeting construction compliance, meeting pool design specification (e.g., maximum slope requirement, minimum water depth in diving area), and passing county inspections. Our team at Orange County Pools & Spas is experienced and knowledgeable about specific pool building requirements. We will handle obtaining a pool building permit and walk with you through each of the other steps. We do also recommend that you check with your local HOA for any additional requirements they may have.

Westchester County, as well as the other counties in the Hudson Valley, requires a pool fence to be installed. It must be a minimum of four feet in height with a self-latching gate. No openings can be more than four inches wide, and the gate handle must be at least 40 inches from the ground. 

The Design Process for Building a Custom Pool

When building a custom pool, the first step is to meet with our design team. Whether you’re not exactly sure what you want or you already have a grand dream pool fully imagined, our incredible team can help you plan, visualize, and design the perfect pool for you. After a property inspection, we will create colorized 2D and 3D renderings to give you a true vision of exactly what your custom pool will look like. Once you give final approval, your project will be scheduled, and your beautiful pool will be in our construction queue.

Custom Pool Features and Options

When it comes to building a custom inground pool, your options are endless. First, you will need to decide between a concrete, vinyl liner, or fiberglass pool. There are perks to each, so consider which might be best for you

Then comes the fun part: choosing fun features for your custom pool! These features might include pool entry types, built-in pool entertainment, water features, in-water seating, LED lighting, and more. There is no right or wrong answer when selecting pool features. Consider what your family would most enjoy having.
