Frequently Asked Questions

Before you start building your swimming pool, be sure to check out some of the most frequently asked questions we receive from customers to decide on the overall design of your swimming pool.

How do I choose a good swimming pool contractor?

Checking credentials is a good place to start when selecting a pool builder. Request the phone number and physical address of the company, as well as the full name and phone number of the sales representative.

Additionally, find out how long they’ve been in business and how many swimming pools they installed in the previous year. Also, be sure to inquire about who is in charge of swimming pool construction and check the licensing and certification of everyone involved in the pool installation.

How much value does a pool add to a house?

California pools can increase the value of your home by about 7%, which is roughly $15,000 for a $220,000 home.

How long does it take to have a pool built?

Building inground pools typically take 8 to 12 weeks to complete. In some cases, it may take less or more time, depending on the process.

What are the stages of building a swimming pool?

Following the signing of your contract, you will receive a custom schedule as well as a detailed/customized plan for the construction of your pool. Followed by:

Step 1: Layout and design
Step 2: Excavation of the land
Step 3: Installing the steel
Step 4: Plumbing and electrical installation
Step 5: Shotcrete
Step 6: Installation of tile and decking
Step 7: Interior finishing
Step 8: Finishing touches

What is the life expectancy of an in-ground pool?

A well-maintained concrete pool should last for at least 50 years. In addition, a well-built in-ground concrete swimming pool should last a lifetime. The liner or finish on a pool, on the other hand, will wear out quickly, resulting in the need to resurface the area every 10 to 15 years.

April V. from Yelp


“There are TWO Calimingo Pool contractors in Orange County. Make sure you're contacting the right one. Apparently the one with the 714 area code does not get back to people and is not the one to go with.”

Jen O. from Yelp


“You absolutely get what you pay for with Calimingo. The quality they put into their work is top notch. All my neighbors went the low cost route with their contractors and you can just tell the difference in quality. Check out the pictures how great everything came out. They even came back to put in the floor I wanted in the fire pit! If you want top craftsmanship go with Calimingo you won't have to worry about anything once the work is done!”

Arun A. from Yelp

Jeremiah M. from Yelp


“We went to Calimingo to design our dream front yard with a pool... they came up with a beautiful design. It really exceeded our expectations! Jonnie, Jeff, and Steve really went above and beyond for us. We haven't started the project yet but we cannot wait to get to it! We will post photos here once it's all done. In the meantime, here is a photo of their design.”

Nicole K. from Yelp


“We have a dream outdoor space because of Calimingo Pools. They worked with us and crafted a pool and backyard that fit our budget and tiny square footage. Jesse, Russ, and their team made communication a breeze, and it was easy to know what steps were next. The craftsmanship and quality of the work is spectacular.

Bob V. from Yelp


“I don't know where to even begin. I literally described my vision to them and they brought it to life. These guys are the real deal. The most rewarding experience after shopping around and having a fallout with a previous company but Calimingo made it up to me by delivering a fast, clean, and absolutely immaculate service. My pool and jacuzzi look like they're out of a movie and I cannot get tired of my view. Thanks again Jesse!!”

Hamun H. from Yelp


“Covid may have delayed our backyard reveal party, but it was well worth the wait. Two and a half years later, we continue to enjoy our outdoor oasis, day or night! We couldn't be happier with our decision to remodel and to use Calimingo Pools. They are the most creative and innovative around!!”

Laura Z. from Yelp


“I can't say enough about Calimingo Pools and how great they are to work with. I am the envy of the neighborhood and by the time I wrote this review they've already started one of my neighbors homes and are in communications with at least two or three other of my neighbors. You guys are awesome. Keep it up!”

Susan J. from Yelp


“Called in to inquire about their services and Mike was excellent and patient . He took the time to answer my questions and was very polite during my conversation. Most construction companies dont seem to have experienced phone consultants that are patient and willing to help, Mike made me feel at ease and I am hopeful that we will hire them in the future. Thank you Mike for your great service , it seems to difficult to find nowadays!”

Evelyn G. from Yelp


“I can't imagine ever recommending anyone else to anybody besides Calimingo Pools. I wish they sold cars and built houses and opened a restaurant too lol :)”

Greg F. from Yelp


“It's rare these days to find a company that just cares about their customers the old fashion way and somehow at the same time they seem to be running it like a fortune 500 company. From beginning to end I was taken care of and handed off from One expert to the next from sales to design to the construction process and even educated on the care of my finished project when we were done. These guys are just a bunch of winners. Thank you so much to everyone at Calimingo Pools!”

Chad H. from Yelp


“My family and I are absolutely in love with our new yard. It's everything and more than we dreamed of. They actually did my yard many years ago, so we knew they would do a great job for us. We always said that we would hire them to do another yard for us when we moved and we finally did!”

Mike C. from Yelp
