Swimming Pool Installation
Decided to install a swimming pool, but not sure where to start? It’s no mystery. Your swimming pool installation begins with an assessment of your terrain. In order to determine size, shape and type, firstly consider your landscape to ascertain how a new pool installation will affect your topography.
The various types of pool installations:
In-ground swimming pools.
The classification of an in-ground swimming pool depends on the material it is constructed of. Pros and cons abound, but Fibreglass and Marbelite are two of the more popular choices. Mostly, your budget, soil type and even your lifestyle will determine your selection.
Fibreglass Pool Construction
Fiberglass shells are pre molded in a factory and delivered to your site in its entirety. This makes for quick and easy installation. The construction crew digs a hole to accommodate the mold, lays the plumbing, add sand filler, and gently lowers the structure into the ground. They then level the pool, connect the plumbing, and backfill the surrounding area. Consequently, you could be splashing around within a week or two.
Marbelite pool Construction
Your pool builder excavates the hole and installs the plumbing. Following this, a reinforced steel grid is set in place, assembled and secured with wire. Once this is in position, they spray on a heavy coating of concrete and leave this to cure for an average of twenty eight to thirty days This provides the structural strength of your pool. Hereafter, a Marbelite application lines and waterproofs your construction.
Pool Size matters
How big do you want the pool to be? Keep in mind that a bigger pool means more upkeep and higher chemical costs. Furthermore, the price of your swimming pool is of course in direct correlation to the dimensions. So, if you have a limited budget, an Olympic size pool is too adventurous a choice.
Now, consider the following:
Who will use the pool and how often will you utilize it?
If your intent is mainly to cool down and give the kids a place to splash around, then bigger might not be better. However, if you are intending to do laps every afternoon, you might consider a larger size.
How much garden is left after the pool installation?
Take into account that you will have a deck area around the swimming pool. How large an area will that cover? Moreover, you will probably entertain guests there in summer, so consider where your patio furniture will fit. Will there be an area near the pool for a braai? Are there any large trees or shrubs that might influence the size of the pool or the deck?
Might your family change size in the coming years?
It could just be the two of you now, but will you still be happy with that splash pool once the children arrive?
Splash Pools and townhouse Pools
If you are a townhouse dweller or the proud owner of a compact back yard, a splash pool can be the ideal way to cool down. These little swimming pools lend themselves to small spaces. Of course, their small size simplifies pool installation and cuts costs.
Take into account that these little pools are much lighter on chemicals and need less maintenance than their larger cousins. As an added benefit, you can easily turn them into a luxurious spa. You can also heat them at a much lower cost.
