This means that you will need to invest the time and energy necessary to create a pool that will last a lifetime.

Financial realities of pool ownership

The financial reality of owning a pool or spa must be taken into consideration before you decide to build your pool. Most people are aware that there will be an ongoing expense for chemicals and pool maintenance service. However, it is advisable that while you are planning your pool budget, that you call your insurance agent to find out how owning a pool will impact your insurance premiums.

This is the time to find out what your insurance company requires in order to maintain coverage. For example, many policies require that a locking fence is installed around the pool; or a certain type of pool cover may be required. Make sure that your insurance protection begins before pool construction. Swimming pool contractors and subcontractors are required to carry liability and property damage insurance, make sure this is the case before you sign a contract.

You will also need to consider that there are varying levels of maintenance costs, depending upon the pool design that you choose. Routine pool maintenance includes the expense necessary to keep the water chemically balanced and sanitary, regular maintenance and repairs of support equipment, as well as periodic cleaning of the pool surfaces. Cost will vary depending upon many factors, including contracting a Charlotte pool company to perform these services.

Designing your pool

Pool design depends upon much more than just your personal preference in materials and shape of the pool. You must take the dimensions of your yard, the slope of the ground, your type of soil, and the accessibility for construction equipment for a start. Challenging conditions such as steep slopes, rocky soil, and limited access will add significantly to the initial cost of construction. Consulting with your pool builders will determine the shape and style that will suit your needs.
