If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you're definitely a candidate for this do-it-yourself project! You'll save THOUSANDS on a sparkling new inground pool from In The Swim. Build it yourself with pride and do it for half the cost of local pool builders! Give us a call today at 1-855-342-4741. We are happy to walk you through the process and answer all of your questions. And after the sale, we'll be there every step of the way, with FREE expert answers and construction advice, to help you enjoy your new pool as soon as possible.

Why Not Buy from a Local Pool Builder?

• Because most homeowners will do a better job than their local dealer ever could. Why? Pool owners make sure that everything is right. They tighten every nut and bolt. They measure twice. They're not concerned about how fast they can get the pool installed, they want it done RIGHT.
• Because many pool dealers try to scare customers into thinking they can't do it themselves. Their business depends on selling you their pools along with installation, so it's in their best interest to steer you towards a complete package.
• Because you can save thousands of dollars by doing it yourself! In fact, most DIY vinyl inground pools end up costing around half the price of what local builders quote.
