5 Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Pool

Building a pool on your property can add value to your home and make the summer even more enjoyable. There are many things to consider, particularly if you have never owned a swimming pool. If you have decided to start the process, here are some questions you need to consider before committing.

Why Do You Want a Swimming Pool?

Knowing how you will use the pool is very important during the first stages of design. If you are planning on doing lengths every morning, then you’ll want a practical design. If you want a space where you and your family can relax and add visual appeal to the yard, you can be more adventurous with the design.

Will Children Use the Pool?

If you are thinking of building a child-friendly pool, it will need a shallow end or even a designated area for the little ones. A pool that is intended for a family with older children and teenagers will most likely require deeper areas for splashing about, but a seating ledge is still appealing. All these possibilities need to be discussed when you begin the planning process.

Is My Property Suitable for a Swimming Pool?

Swimming pools come in many sizes and you can surely find one that will fit your space but there are other things to consider. Will it be in the backyard or would you like to fence and make use of the front? You might need to test the area if it is on sandy or rocky ground. Although these characteristics will not make it impossible to build a swimming pool, they will present different challenges. Building on a hillside will require support structures and decking, which makes fibreglass inground pool installation an excellent choice. Fibreglass pools are a great option in most cases and can be quicker to install than concrete if you hire reputable pool builders like Darwin Fibreglass Pools & Spas.

What Added Features Do I Want?

Your pool can provide endless hours of enjoyment and you can choose additional water or lighting features to make it more attractive. Darwin Fibreglass Pools & Spas offers black powder-coated aluminium fencing to surround your new swimming pool safely.

Can I Handle the Maintenance?

All swimming pools require regular maintenance. You will need to keep the pool clean and monitor the chemical balance of the water. This might seem overwhelming if you have never had a swimming pool before, but you will soon get the hang of it. If you don’t want to worry about it, talk to us about our regular pool care.
