Building a well-designed pool requires you to consider several aspects. To start the project, you’ll need to decide on exactly what kind of pool you want.
Your choices are basically divided into three types: concrete pools, vinyl, and fiberglass. Each has distinct advantages and peculiarities. Concrete pools are durable and ideal for making custom designs with, but are difficult to maintain. Vinyl pools, on the other hand, can be easily installed although they are fragile and can effortlessly be punctured by sharp objects. Meanwhile, fiberglass pools occupy the middle ground between the two: robust and easy to maintain, but available only in limited shapes and sizes.
Once you’ve chosen the pool type, you’ll have to think of the specifics of the pool, in particular how deep and how big it will be and what features it will carry. The size of the pool is just one of the things that can affect the construction’s overall cost. Special features like an added spa or a slide can increase the final price.
After you’ve decided on the features and the budget for your pool, you need to familiarize yourself with the local codes and building regulations in your area. Although your trusted pool builder can take care of this aspect of the construction (i.e., getting the necessary permits, ensuring that building codes are followed, etc.), it still wouldn’t hurt for you to make sure that your pool meets standard requirements.
