So you’ve made the exciting, wise, and wonderful decision to not let your family melt away in the summer heat this year! You are finally going to jump in and buy a swimming pool. But how do you decide which pool is right for you? Here are a few key factors to consider when choosing the right pool for you and your family:
Location is the first consideration for pools and should be based on available space. It is important to select an area with no underground lines, septic tanks, dry wells, tree roots or stumps.
Next, select the pool size that fits you and your family as well as the yard. There are many shapes and sizes to choose from including round, oval, freeform and Grecian. All of these shapes are available in multiple sizes. Make sure you allow for plenty of room for the average number of swimmers you expect to regularly use the pool. Don't forget to allow some space around the pool for lounge chairs and sun soaking!
After that, you'll decide between an in ground pool, above ground pool, or the Radiant pool. The quality and type of material you choose, along with your budget, will help you decide which pool is right for you. If you have challenges involving yard shape, water table, or HOA considerations, we find the Radiant pool can often solve these issues.
