You have decided that this was the last summer that you will go without a pool; understandably, you want the best pool installation that is available. After reading a few articles on the internet, you realize that building a swimming pool can be a daunting task. One of your first questions is, “How will I find the best pool builder?” Talk with several pool builders, ask every question you can think of, look at their work, and consider a contractor who will listen to you and help you to turn your ideas into the ideal pool installation.

What is the right pool for me?

The first thing you will need to decide is the size, shape, and depth, of your swimming pool. The topography and the landscaping surrounding your pool will be factors that you will need to consider. Lifestyle will also determine a lot of your choices. For example, do you have children that are grown or in their late teens, or are they toddlers? Perhaps you have no children at all and a smaller pool with a spa attached is an important feature? Maybe you have a very large backyard, and you want your pool area to fill that space. There are specific questions that your pool builder will ask you in order to determine the best pool for you. This is why it is important to choose a qualified and experienced pool builder, because together, you will discover what you want and what works for you.

How will you use your pool?

How will you use the pool? Many pool owners want their pool to be a centerpiece for entertainment in their home, and for hosting lively gatherings. For others, their concept is a nice pool to relax in, where sitting by the pool side and listening to a waterfall or fountain is just as important as swimming. More and more pool owners are opting for pools that are low maintenance because of their busy lifestyle. Some families will have an empty nest in four or five years, so it is important to consider your current lifestyle, but also recognize how your needs for a pool will change in the next few years. This includes the possibility or the reality of grand kids in the future.

Shape and safety

Have you considered the shape of your pool? Do you want a rectangular pool or a unique shape/design? Are you seeking the largest pool for the money? A rectangular pool can provide you will the greatest amount of square footage, and will lend itself to the safest type of pool cover. However, for many, aesthetics and ambiance are major inspirations for their pool. Perhaps you want a unique shape that compliments the house and landscape? Many pool owners forget that safety and access are often regulated by local ordinances. The best pool builders see this as another opportunity to be creative. The law may state that you must have a locking gate to prevent access by small children; however, this is only an opportunity to create an ornate or natural looking barrier that adds to the beauty and atmosphere of your pool area.
