Inground Pools - Enjoy Your Summers

Jul 31, 2008
You would love to take a swim in all this hot weather in one of the varieties of in ground pools available wouldn't you? You would like to be able to entertain guests at you own pool even better. This all sounds real nice as hot as today was. Paddling around or floating in the pool with family or friends is always enjoyable. It is easy to have your own pool these days but you need to educate yourself a bit first before building one.

It is a responsibility to own one of the in ground pools. You must keep your pool clean and the water clean to have a it sanitary to swim in. Never swim in an unclean pool. So before making your decision find out what it takes to maintain a pool. This way you will be sure if you want to take on the task.

Now that you have decided that you will take good care of your pool you need to examine your yard for placement. To do this figure the logistics of where you want the pool. To do this look at the ease of getting to and from the pool from the house. Make sure you can conveniently access your bathroom too.

Now time to decide on how you want the pool to be shaped and the size of that shape. Does a circular one fit what you need or are you thinking square or rectangle? Maybe you have a custom shape in mind for you pool. Have you ever seen a guitar shaped pool? Even shapes like that can be built. Don't forget you can add other water features like waterfalls too.

This maybe a good time to call in a pool contractor or pool designer to help you plan. If you are not a pro at doing pools you may have trouble with the rest of the planning and work that a pool entails. A pool designer or contractor can help you not make mistakes that could cause you problems later.

When you hire someone to help you design and build your pool and you have made the decision on how your pool will look and the size it is time to decide what to make it out of. There is more than one choice on what the pool can be create from. We will look at some of the options available.

The three main materials to do pools from are vinyl lined, concrete and fiberglass. Vinyl lined pools can be stunning with all the choices in colors and designs available in them. But vinyl liners can get tore which can cause problems. Concrete is so versatile as far as being able to mold into different shapes. Concrete can help create some real unique pools. The bad thing about concrete is how much cleaning it requires and that it can get cracks as aging occurs. Fiberglass is the tougher of these materials. A fiberglass pool last longer with less maintenance than the others. Fiberglass pools come in preset shapes though so you are limited to your choice shape wise using it.

Now that you have decided what material to make your pool from, you can start to have your style of the in ground pools built. Once it is built you will need to landscape the surrounding area. Now fill your new pool with water and treat it with either the salt-water treatment or the chemical treatment. Let the water come to proper PH. Now you can have fun splashing and swimming around.
