When Can I Get a Pool in Kansas?

When Can I Get a Pool in Kansas?

So, when can you get a pool in Kansas? With spring and summer rapidly approaching, many people are looking ahead for ways to make the warmer weather extra fun. With the addition of a backyard pool, you and your family can enjoy months of swimming, poolside chats, pool parties, relaxation, and more! However, installing a new pool in your backyard takes time for a variety of reasons. 

At Energy Center-Manhattan Pool, we are currently taking reservations for pools into 2023. With ample experience, certified know-how, and highly skilled craftsmen, it’s easy to see why so many people choose Energy Center-Manhattan Pool for all their pool needs. Here are some of the reasons building a pool takes time.

Preparing for your Kansas Pool

Before installing your pool even begins, there is a list of things that need to be handled. Many of these pre-pool steps cannot be rushed or hurried. This is one reason pools cannot be done more quickly.


Regardless of the pool type you choose for your backyard, it required some measure of planning. You can also plan and prepare for ongoing pool costs and adjust your budget accordingly. If you are interested in financing options, Energy Center-Manhattan Pool partners with HFS Financial, the trusted leader in home improvement financing.

Permits and Approvals

Before a pool can be added to your backyard in Manhattan, Wamego, or Junction City, you have to obtain a pool permit. This permit is issued by the city and can take time for approval. You may also need to apply for HOA approval if you live in a neighborhood. 


This is the fun part! Dream up and design the pool you’ve always wanted for your backyard. Choose shapes, size, and features. When making these decisions, it’s best to not be rushed so you don’t regret your choices later.

Installation Time for a Pool in Kansas

Inground Pools

Inground pools include gunite and vinyl liner pools. Typically, the installation time for an inground pool formed with gunite is anywhere from two to three months depending on the size and features. Vinyl liner pools can be done more quickly, usually installed in two to four weeks.  Also, check out this inground pool we recently built!

Above Ground Pools

Semi-inground Pools

Being partially in the ground and partially above the ground, semi-inground pools have a lot to offer! Semi-inground pools can be installed at a variety of depths to give you just the look you want. They require a small amount of excavation, though much less than an inground pool. As a result, installation time is typically a couple weeks.
