Once you decide to install a swimming pool, you will need to decide whether you would rather install and above ground pool or an in ground pool. There are many options, depending on what you are looking for:
- In ground pool – generally adds value to your home, especially if you are in a warm climate, though this is the more expensive option. Pools are made of either concrete, vinyl or fiberglass.
- Above ground pool – less expensive and easier to install, but does not add to the value or your home.
Regardless of the type of pool you select, you will have additional costs of increased use of water, chemicals, and heating systems. Swimming pools require water, sewer and electric lines, and possibly permits for installation.
Make sure you have a professional plumber install your pool, ensuring that you have proper water circulation through the filtering system with two or more drains at the bottom and multiple drains at the top of the pool. Water is pumped though a filtering system and back out to the returns.
Once your installation is complete – enjoy!
