Do Not Install a Swimming Pool Without Considering These 5 Factors

There’s a lot to love about swimming pools but they are not a great option for every background. Read on to discover five factors you should carefully consider before deciding to install a swimming pool. If you are having plumbing issues, contact High Speed Plumbing at 1-888-958-1394 for help.

1. Do You Want a Pool for the Right Reasons?

First and foremost, think long and hard about what you really want from a pool in the first place. Pools require a lot of work so your reason should be well thought out. Do you want to use it for exercise? For throwing parties? To relax? Are you considering the installation of a pool to be an investment and if so when do you expect to see a return on that investment?

2. Where Will You Install the Pool?

Next, think about where you are going to install it. They are much easier to install on a level site that has stable soil and a low water table. If you’re not sure if this applies to your property, ask your local plumber. While you can install a pool just about anywhere, it is much easier if these things are already in place. Also think about who much sun the imagined location gets, and how much wind it gets.

3. What Type of Pool Will You Get

There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all swimming pool. You will have many options to choose from, including above ground or in-ground. You will need to choose between concrete or fiberglass. You will need to decide on the size, shape, and how deep you want the pool. The decisions you make will affect how much it costs to install the pool, how long it takes, and other factors, such as what type of fence you must install around the pool.

4. Do You Have the Budget for It?

Are you surprised to learn that the average in-ground pool costs between $30,000 and $50,000? An above-ground pool can be much more affordable, between $1,000 and $3,000. Again, remember that you may also have to install additional infrastructures such as fences and decks.

5. Who Will Install It?

You need a company that is highly experienced in installing pools. At High Speed Plumbing we have seen enough plumbing emergencies caused by poor pool installation to warn you against hiring a company that does not have experience. Ask around to see if you can find someone your friends or family trusts. Read online reviews. Do your due diligence and increase your chances of a positive end result.
