When you think pool then the only thoughts you really have are very positive thoughts about long summer days lounging by one and drinking some kind of lethal cocktail. It definitely sounds like the life, doesn’t it?
There are disadvantages to inground pools or any kind of pool really but who wants to focus on the disadvantages of an inground pool when you could focus on the advantages and talk yourself into potentially buying one? Well the pipe dream of a pool is at least better than not having a pipe dream of buying a pool!
Let’s face it even if you take the vanity out of buying an inground pool the benefits are still numerous and wide ranging enough for you to buy one. For starters a pool increases the price of your home so even if it costs a bit to buy and install a pool you could potentially make that back in any sale, and even if you are not planning on selling any time soon what’s the harm in increasing the resale value anyway?
You could even get fitter and healthier from an inground pool because you have a pool in your backyard that promotes swimming, which is one of the best and most rigorous forms of exercise. In addition to this an inground pool will give you and the family hours of unbridled fun and amusement as that is something you cannot really buy… unless you buy an inground pool!
Here are some of the steps you will need to take to get your perfect pool.
Picking an inground pool is the first and probably most important decision you will make with regards to your pool because this decision sets off a domino effect on every other factor of the pool.
Firstly there are three main types of inground pool, ranging from concrete and vinyl to fibreglass, and you will have to pick which one you prefer and which one best suits your needs. For example concrete inground pools are the most popular and durable pool but they are the most expensive so if you don’t have the money you might have to go with the fibreglass inground pool which is the cheapest.
With something like a pool you can’t just have one put in your backyard and you will have to check with the appropriate agencies whether your pool meets the regulations and guidelines. Some factors which can affect your bid for planning is the setback distance from the pool to the surrounding property lines sewer lines and septic tanks.
