Frequently Asked Questions

There is an old adage that a contractor is only as good as his subcontractors. We have found that most swimming pool contractors will use up to 7 different companies or subcontractors to build your pool. Most pool builders in Nashville hire a separate subcontractor for each of the following specialties: digging the pool, placing the rebar/steel, installing pool plumbing and filter system, shooting the shotcrete, installing water line tile, plastering the pool, and installing the coping. At McMillion we provide all phases of building your pool with our own in house crew. This improves quality and enables your pool to be built much faster.

Believe it or not, there are individuals in the Nashville area who perform pool construction and do no maintain a current license. They will often offer lower prices or sometimes charge a premium while masquerading as a fully licensed contractor!

McMillion Pool Company is a fully licensed BC-A Residential and BC26 Commercial Swimming Pool Contractor with the license number 79407. Maintaining this license means that the employees are covered by workers compensation should an accident occur on your property, meaning you are protected from liability. This also means that the proper electrical and natural gas permits will be obtained for your new pool or swimming pool remodeling project.

The answer is yes. Many times a pool is accidentally built (the concrete structure) with one end of the pool lower than the other. Improper measures are the only choice at this point and usually taken to correct the problem which causes the pool tile and coping to come loose and fall off after 3 or 4 years. At McMillion Pools we know we have one shot at building your pool correctly and that is why we insist on controlling all phases of construction with one group of technicians who handle all 7 phases of pool construction.

Many high volume pool builders will show you beautiful pools built by their "A" crew and then send a "C" crew out to build your pool. At McMillion Pools we are not a high volume builder. Our crew builds between 10 and 20 pools a year. We have the same crew of technicians on all 7 phases of construction on every job. We have greater quality control which translates years of enjoyment for our clients, instead of cracked stone and tile on brand new pools that we see built by many of our competitors.

A common problem on improperly built swimming pools is efflorescence. This is caused by improper construction of the waterline tile or raised stone around the pool. It is caused when moisture seeps in to the concrete and forces calcium out from behind your stone. We have encountered the problem on countless newer pools in the Nashville area, sometimes on pools less than 3 years old.

We repair many newer swimming pools in which the pool skimmer is improperly constructed next to the bond beam around the shotcrete structure of the pool. The brand new pool has cracks in the patio/deck around the pool within 2 or 3 years due to this improper construction. We can show you photos of the after effects of this mistake.

We do have options for those on a lower budget, including above-ground pools. However, our custom, inground pools are of superior quality and come with a higher price tag. Just like with anything else in life - cars, houses, food, clothing - you get what you pay for. The craftsmanship is unmatched in our pools and the price reflects that. If another company is offering your dream pool at a discounted rate, they are cutting corners somewhere and you'll likely be disappointed in the end result.

Regularly check and clean pool filters, monitor water levels, and address any issues promptly to avoid greater damage.
