It seems that the majority of the people having pools built (at least the ones who post build threads on here) are displeased with their poolbuilders. There also seems to be a growing number of posters who knock builders frequently. I have to wonder is it really that bad? Is it that hard to find a good pool builder? I just don't hear that much negativity locally but most of the pools around here are vinyl. Could it be that the pool builds people document on here are more complex and more prone to delays and mess ups? Are buyers that are the type to post build threads too particular? Is it like the homebuilding industry was here a few years ago when everyone that didn't need to build houses was resulting in a massive amount of inferior homes being built? Are pool builders in general just that crappy and untrustworthy?
Honestly, had I read these build threads prior to building a pool I probably never would have done it. What is your opinion on the reason for the angst (or am I just imagining things)?
