What To Know Before Building Your Home Swimming Pool

Installing a Swimming Pool

There are a variety of things you should know before breaking ground on a swimming pool.

One of the most important aspects of installing any pool into a home is the planning process.  Planning your pool design with the pool contractor and architect can take several months depending on the intricacy of your pool.  Sometimes people aren’t able to have a pool because of where their property lies.  There are several critical things you should know before even breaking ground to build a pool for your home.

Know Your Purpose

How you want to use your pool will greatly affect the design and installation process.  You should go into the meeting with your pool architect with knowing your specific purpose for your pool and what you want to get out of it.  The architects at Rhine Pools will design a pool differently for someone who wants to mainly exercise compared to someone who wants one for entertainment purposes.  If you want to be able to relax and unwind in your pool, then a design will likely recommend a heated spa in addition to your pool.

Can You Have A Pool On Your Property?

Although you may want a pool in your backyard, sometimes county regulations may not allow for you to have one.  In some cases, you might have a large private septic system under your property preventing you from installing a pool.  Make sure that you meet all the standards and laws in your county or city so that you can build a pool on your property.

Where Will It Be Located

So along with knowing if you can have a pool on your property, you should know where specifically on your property you want your pool.  Depending on your residential zoning laws, you might have to your pool be a certain size and be located in specific place on your property.  You should know how much space you have to work with and if your pool will consume your whole backyard.  Review your local zoning laws when deciding on building a pool on your property.
