So you’ve come to the decision that a backyard swimming pool is the one for you, but aren’t sure who one is best for you? This article will help you decide which one is best for you based on your needs.
Why Do You Want a Pool?
Determining the reason why you want a pool will help decided which pool is best for you. If you have a family, maybe it’s because they have been asking you for one for ages? Perhaps you are an athlete who wants to train in the comfort of his/her own home? Whatever the reason, knowing exactly why will go a long way to deciding what pool you should get.
Choosing the Type You Want
Now that you’ve worked out why you want a pool, now it’s time to source a pool specialist or decide for yourself what type of pool you want. The two pools you will most likely want to choose from are in-ground and above ground. Both options have their strengths and weakness, however an in-ground pool has the advantage of adding value to your home and is visually more appealing than the cheaper and easier to install aboveground.
The Perfect Spot
How will you decide the perfect spot in your backyard for your pool? Hopefully you’ll have a few positions in mind. Most importantly you will need to take into account the existing landscape features as well as the shape of your yard. Talking with your local council is a good idea so you are abiding by their fencing regulations.
Talk to the Pool Experts
You’ve found the ideal spot and so it’s now time to get in contact with your local pool store and have a chat to one of their many experts. You can often book an appointment with them or they can come out to your home. However if they can’t do that, take some photos of yard and bring them in with you so they have an idea of what they are going to be working with. Not only this but they can advise you on heating and perhaps suggest some design features that will have your pool looking amazing.
