If you’re ready to install the ideal swimming pool in your backyard, there are many features to consider. Here are some elements to think about before purchasing a pool.
What to Consider Before Pool Construction
There are certain questions you should ask before making a purchase. First, you should ask about the final cost, including landscaping, decking and any features you want. Also, consider the required maintenance, including what you need to do to keep the pool consistently clean and the chemicals you need to use. Installation time is another factor to consider, along with the services that the pool builders offer to maintain the pool.
One of the two main types of pools that homeowners can buy is an above-ground pool, which is the least expensive option. Above-ground pools are great for families that don’t necessarily want to commit to a permanent in-ground pool installation.
There are several benefits of owning an above-ground pool, including that they:
- Are moveable;
- Offer quick installation;
- Are available in different sizes, shapes and decorations; and
- Are ideal for smaller yards.
They also come with aluminum, steel, or resin sidings, each with its own benefits such as long lifespan and rust resistance.
In-ground pools are great if you’re ready to build a permanent pool in your backyard that appears more luxurious than an above-ground pool. They are more expensive but can add visual appeal and value to the home.
In-ground pools allow for more depth options, ranging from kids’ play pools up to 5 feet deep to depths of 12 feet or more if you enjoy diving. Consider the overall use for the pool, and it will help you decide.
