Having a swimming pool installed is a significant investment that must be thoroughly thought out. You need to think about what type of pool or spa you want, where it will go and if you are sticking around long enough to make the most of it. There are many different types of swimming pools out there, such as fibreglass, concrete or vinyl-lined. Before choosing what materials to use, make sure you are familiar with the pros and cons of each. Read more on considerations for swimming pools here.
It's no good dreaming of a swimming pool with custom features like waterfalls and fountains if you can't afford it. Instead, familiarise yourself with what your money can buy and decide on materials or add ons afterwards. Additionally, make sure that you have a sound circulation system to keep the water clean and fresh.
Who is the pool for? Are you installing one for your enjoyment, or is it to add value to your home? A pool for yourself can be customised with whatever you desire but if you are planning to sell up soon, then consider a stylish and long-lasting pool that is attractive to buyers.
