The first thing to think about when deciding what kind of pool to get is your budget. There are many things to consider beyond the outright cost of the swimming pool and installation. For example, you need to keep the recurring pool maintenance costs in mind over the long term. You will also want to ensure that the pool you choose lasts well into the future. Do your homework, learn what you need and be wary of low-cost estimates, because you get what you pay for.

The design you choose for your pool should accommodate everyone in your family, and also friends who may enjoy your pool from time to time. Make sure that your pool is big enough for safe use, but also ensure you have enough space in your backyard to put the swimming pool. Another thing to think about is whether you want an in-ground, on-ground, or above-ground pool installation. Each option carries pros and cons, so talk with your pool consultant to choose the perfect pool for your family.

Zoning Laws

Each state and locality has zoning laws to follow when installing pools. The requirements of the location of your pool will vary depending on where you live. Restrictions such as how close to property lines you may build your swimming pool are crucial to pay attention to. There are other laws regarding safety as well.

Fencing is an absolute must for any home with children. A pool poses a great danger to pets and small children, so ensuring you have a fence with a childproof latch will go a long way to protect your family. Slipping is also something to keep in mind. Wet stones or wood decking is very slippery when wet, so consider slip-proof materials when building around your pool.
