If you are considering adding a pool to your property, there are two main types; the in-ground pool, which is the most popular, and the above ground version, which is usually the choice when an in-ground pool is not possible.
Assuming you are looking at an in-ground pool, you have two choices; concrete or fibreglass and there are benefits for both types. The obvious benefit to fibreglass is the much lower cost and the ease of installation makes this a very attractive alternative to the traditional concrete pool. The downside to a fibreglass pool is you are limited to the shapes and sizes available, although the range is comprehensive and there should be something suitable.
Regardless of the type of pool you choose, the area will have to be dug out and if you have the access, an excavator would make short work of this, with trucks ferrying the soil away. Unless you happen to be very experienced at pool construction, you should leave this to the professionals, who have the resources and know-how to install the pool correctly.
This would be a major feature of the property and pool safety must be taken into consideration when designing the pool and the barrier. Whether looking for pool compliance in Kings Langley or Merrylands, the pool contractor is very familiar with state requirements and will leave the pool in a condition that is fully compliant and you can book a pool inspection to receive your swimming pool, compliance certificate.
The fibreglass pool is coated with a special gel and that last for 10-15 years, after which, it needs to be resurfaced. If you are choosing concrete, then you have a number of finishing options; tiled or painted, with tiles being the most popular, as this is the best long-term solution. When you sit down with the pool designer, there are many aspects to consider and you should explore all the avenues, with colours and types of tiles.
Pool Filtration & Equipment
Regardless of which type of pool, you need to have a suitable water filtration system installed, which is a significant expense, but one that is necessary. The system would have filtration that needs regular cleaning, plus you have a control panel to empty and refill the pool, then there’s the pool cleaning equipment, which is not something you can overlook.
Once the pool is complete, check with the state regarding pool compliance and make sure that your pool enclosure and fencing is compliant, then you can book a pool inspection from an approved pool certification company and get ready to enjoy the ultimate accessory.
