SA Pools Offers the Market Some Tips for Planning Home Swimming Pools

Home swimming pools are a sought-after property feature in this day and age. Renters actively seek out properties with pools for comfort and convenience, and homeowners benefit from having pools installed, as they makes their properties more desirable and also increase their overall value exponentially. One of the greatest perks of this type of property value increase is that it doesn’t cost too much in terms of the initial investment. When you feel that you’re ready to take the plunge and get your first pool installed, here are a few tips to make the process simpler for you:

  • Create a wish list and do a little homework – it’s good to know precisely what your dream home swimming pools are. Once you have a list of pool types and designs, research them online. See just how difficult or easy they will be to achieve, and what you can expect to pay. Once you have a better idea of your options and what’s possible, you can get ready to speak to your builder.
  • Gather pictures of what you like – you might be able to scribble a rough sketch or explain your desired pool design to your supplier or pool builder, but having pictures to back up this information will go a long way. Gather home improvement or lifestyle magazines, or browse around online to find images of pools that you feel would work for you.
  • Get to know the types of pools available, and understand how much effort care and maintenance of each will be required. There are typically 3 types of in-ground pools that you can opt for: vinyl, fibreglass and concrete. Each of these types must be cleaned and water filtered in a different way, so get to know how this will be done. You will soon realise which option would be more affordable and convenient for you.
  • Measure up the available space properly and be realistic about your swimming pool design. If you have a very limited space available, it is best to consider a splash pool instead of trying to squeeze a large and elaborate pool into the space. Your pool builder should be able to advise you on which size and shape will be best suited to your property.
  • Don’t forget about all the features that you might want. It’s true that it’s much easier to build a swimming pool with all the features that you want than it is to retrofit it after the fact. Take the time to consider the available features and see where your budget can cater to these straight from the start. After all, a home swimming pools is a long-term and valuable investment – get the most out of it from day 1.
  • Ensure that you only choose an experienced and reliable pool construction expert to handle the building of your pool. Home swimming pools require proper planning and creative flair – choose a builder, who has both of these qualities to offer.
