To assist in your decision-making process, we would like to share some of our wisdom and advice. Let’s start with some essential factors to consider when determining what type of pool is best suited for your family:

Start by asking yourself:

What kind of use do you want to achieve from the pool? (think long term)

Do you want the pool for exercise? Entertaining? For the kids? Playing games or just cooling off on a hot summer day?

Look at the space where you want to put the pool. Incorporate your patio, decking, green areas, and possible play areas for kids. Consider all the factors and visualize what it will look like when finished; will this be the focal point of your back yard.

Ensure you don’t lose the functionality of your yard. Remember, this is going to be your retreat and a place to entertain or relax. And think long term… kids are going to grow, so make sure the pool is the size so those little ones can enjoy it well beyond this year.

Access to your yard can also determine what your options for a pool may be:

You will need to have adequate access to the appropriate equipment to get into your yard and may also require access and permission from your neighbour.
