What To Consider When Planning For A Pool

Investing in a pool is a great decision, but you want to make sure you have considered all that goes into it.

Investing in a pool is a great decision because it add great value to your home and you never have to go far to take a swim on a hot day! However, installing or building a pool requires quite a bit of time and planning. You want to make sure your pool is built correctly and is the best quality possible, so here are some things to consider when planning for a pool.

Price Of Construction

The first thing you should consider when planning for a pool is the cost. Since in-ground pools have to be designed and constructed, they cost significantly more than an above ground pool. They start around $20,000 depending on the size that you want it to be and other features you’d like to include. If you want a more elaborate design with bonus water and patio features, you can expect to spend anywhere between 40 to $100,000 on your new addition.

Ongoing Costs

After your pool is built, your job is not finished. Planning for a pool means you have to commit to keeping up with regular maintenance to keep it safe to swim in. You should consider the costs of equipment such as filters, pumps, and pool vacuums. You also have to buy the chemicals for the pool every so often, which can cost you anywhere from $50 to $100 per month depending on your pool’s needs. Your utility bill will also likely increase because you have to run the pool filter quite often.

Choosing A Contractor

 You want to choose a professional contractor that will give you the best quality for the best price. Getting referrals from friends and neighbors is always a good idea because they will likely give you honest feedback on their experience. You don’t want to settle on the first company you come across, rather it’s best to do your research. It is important that the contractor is insured. Sunrise Premier Pool Builders will surely be the best pick for your pool installation.

Construction Time

An in-ground pool isn’t going to be built overnight, so it is important to consider the time that will go into constructing your new pool. On average, a pool can take between three and twelve weeks to build depending on how complex your pool design is. You want to plan for your backyard to be off limits during this time, so it’s better to plan to have your pool installed during the spring season so that it will be ready by the time the warm summer months come along.
