As I explain in this video, this is my personal experience building a swimming pool as an owner builder. I think the vast majority of people should use a pool contractor when they decide to build a swimming pool. We spoke with several pool contractors in our area here in Southern California and all of them were months out from being able to start the project and some were not even considering taking on new projects. 

Be sure to watch both videos, part 1 and part 2 to see all the entire project from start to finish. If you have any questions please leave them as a comment on YouTube. I will do my best to answer these questions.
