Pool design and installation in Bakersfield

Bakersfield skyline

Hot summer temperatures and plenty of sun year-round make pools very popular in Bakersfield. Many homes in newer developments in northwest and southwest Bakersfield have large yards with space for backyard pools. Homeowners in the Westchester/Riviera area, where properties are generally larger than other central Bakersfield lots, might consider inground pool installation to maintain competitive property values.

Above ground pools are a great option for Bakersfield residents with small backyards or who want a pool that can be installed in a matter of days. Above ground pools are less expensive and easier to maintain but aren’t as long-lasting as inground options.

Above ground pools are made with an aluminum or steel outer wall and a vinyl liner on the inside. Bakersfield residents who are installing an inground pool have several materials to choose from: fiberglass, concrete or vinyl.

  • Fiberglass pools are durable and resist algae growth because the material is nonporous, but they are expensive. Because these pools are prebuilt by manufacturers, you’re limited to a selection of designs.
  • Concrete (gunite) pools are highly customizable and can be built in any design, making them the choice for many Bakersfield residents who are installing a pool to complement a landscaped yard. These pools are harder to clean, however, and take longer to install.
  • Vinyl pools are the least expensive inground option. They’re the least expensive type of inground pool and easy to customize, but less durable. The liner typically must be replaced every 6 to 12 years.

Maintaining your pool in Bakersfield

Some pool builders also provide maintenance services. If the company you work with doesn’t, its employees may be able to recommend a professional pool maintenance service. You can also choose to maintain your pool yourself.

To maintain your pool, you must keep the water pH-balanced by adding pH increasers or reducers, usually in the form of powder or tablets. Chlorine tablets or granules must be added to prevent bacteria and algae from growing in the water and on the pool surfaces. Other supplies you’ll need for daily cleaning and maintenance include:

  • Pumps and filtration devices
  • Chemical test kit
  • Vacuum head and hose
  • Pool brush, net and leaf rake

How to choose a pool builder in Bakersfield

Once you choose what type of pool you want, find a company that specializes in that type of construction. Contact a few contractors and see if they do on-site evaluations and provide advice if you’re unsure what type of pool would be best for you. When you contact a pool builder, consider asking them:

  • How much experience do you have building pools?
  • What types of materials do you use?
  • Do you provide a free consultation?
  • Do you work with customers to produce custom designs?
  • How long will it take to build the pool?
  • Do you provide warranties on the labor or parts?

Pool builders in Bakersfield must hold a swimming pool (C-53) license with the Contractors State License Board. Verify the company’s license is valid before signing a contract. The CSLB provides basic information for consumers researching swimming pool contractors. All California contractors must also carry a minimum of general liability insurance.

Inground pool installation in Bakersfield requires a building permit and installation certificate. Above ground pools must meet specific fencing and locking requirements. During drought conditions, some Bakersfield inground pools are also subject to water use regulations, depending on the water district. Pool contractors in Bakersfield should be able to help with the permitting process.
