If you don’t have a pool at your home, the idea of having one installed can fill you with equal parts excitement and dread. On the one hand, a new pool is the perfect addition for your home in the hot summer and can make it the coolest spot in your neighborhood. On the other hand, the thought of the actual work that goes into the project can be a little scary, and that doesn’t even begin to address the basic maintenance that goes into a pool! Let’s address some of these concerns and help you make your new pool installation as smooth as possible.
The Process of Preparation
First, you’ll need to make sure that you choose a pool installer reputed for high-quality work. Check out their work online and ask around for references. Have a budget in mind for how much money you’re able to spend on the new pool and begin to do some research on the types of pools out there. What size and shape would you like for your new pool? Are you looking for a pool that blends in with your landscaping or something more modern? Want to add any water features to make your pool stand out? Your contractor can present you with all the options to suit the design you’re looking for.
Maintenance is definitely a serious part of owning a pool, so make sure you’re aware of what will be required once the pool is all set up. Pools require regular checkups and frequent cleaning. If you know this before having one installed there shouldn’t be any surprises.
Protecting Your Family
If you have a family with small children, you should give some serious consideration to having fencing installed around your new pool with a self-closing, self-latching door. In addition, you’ll have to have your homeowner’s insurance updated.
A Word About Your Yard
Finally, know that a new pool installation will make your yard look like a mess for a little while! A pool installation, depending on the type of pool and features you want along with the weather, can take between two and twelve weeks to complete. However, don’t panic! An experienced contractor will make sure your yard looks good as new after the installation is complete.
