Have you been thinking or getting a swimming pool for your family home? Owning a swimming pool can lead to some of the best moments for you and your family’s life but to make the most of these experiences it’s important to note and understand what options you have.
Above Ground Pool
The biggest selling point in having an above ground swimming pool is the cost. Above ground pools are significantly cheaper to construct than any type of in ground pool, it’s all the extras like decking that increase the costs.
A disadvantage is how they look. Many people think above ground pools are ugly, even with a deck build around them they will enhance no one’s garden. There is also a limit to shapes that these pools are available in, they only tend to be made in circle, oval or rectangle shapes. Above Ground pools are good if you want something that is easier to move, replace or won’t be factored as an improvement when a house is being valued or when you are trying to sell.
Vinyl liner inground pools
Vinyl liners are the best option if you are on a budget because they are made out of low cost materials. Unlike above ground pools there are many options for size and design when it comes to vinyl liner pools, with modern technology they can be as deep or as curvy as you like
Vinyl Liner inground pools are not built to last, they can tear and will break down over time due to their polymer construction. These pools were last between 7-12 years but are expensive to fix, often looking cheaper due to this deterioration.
The main advantage to a concrete pool is that it’s customizable to fit any size, depth or shape necessary for either practical of aesthetic reasons. Concrete pools will usually add value to the property if you sell your home.
The biggest disadvantage to a concrete pool is the high level of maintenance require to keep it sanitary and the water clear. There are added expenses in buying chemicals, filters and also the resurfaces required every 8-15 years.
Fibreglass pools require the least amount of maintenance, mainly because no algae grows on the fibreglass surface. Because they are constructed doff site they are easy to install once a hole is dug and cause minimal bother to the homeowners. They can also come in various designs, shapes and colours to match the style of your home, the problem is that if you want a custom made design it will cost significantly more as the manufacturers will have to build a specially designed mould.
Fibreglass pools can be a cheaper option once you factor in the costs of up keeping other styles of pools and that it will still add value to your home.
