Things to Consider When Planning to Install a Swimming Pool at Home

Are you planning to install a swimming pool in your home? We have listed the things that you have to consider before you search for before you reach out to some of the best swimming pool contractors in UAE.

  1. Location

Where will you place the pool? Do you want it in the backyard, on your rooftop, or inside the house? To help you decide, consider you water pipelines and electrical wirings. Some people also base the location of their pools on the sun and wind exposure.

  1. Size and Depth

What are the dimensions of your pool, and how deep do you want it to be? Four feet, five feet, or six feet deep? You might want to consider including a slope on the pool to incorporate different depth levels. For example, the sides of the pool would be four feet deep only, and then the middle part of the pool would be six feet deep. Meanwhile, if you are installing the pool for your kids, it’s best to include a three feet level on the pool.

  1. Shape

The shape of your pool also matters for aesthetics and safety purposes. The most common shapes are oval, rectangle, and kidney-shaped. If your goal is to have an Olympic-like pool, or if you want the pool for long swimming laps, opt for a rectangle shape. On the other hand, if you want something that would blend well with beautiful landscapes, choose the kidney shape.

  1. Materials

You can choose from different materials for your pool. For outdoor pools, we highly suggest concrete because it is flexible, easy to customize and not slippery. Finish it with tiles, marbles, pebbles and high-quality paint. If you will install the pool indoors, you may opt for fiberglass. However, fiberglass is usually pre-made so you won’t be able to personalize your pool if this is the material you’re going to use.

  1. Budget

How much are you willing to spend for installing your swimming pool and for its maintenance? Review the prices of the materials you prefer, including the cost for add-ons. Ask a quotation from a potential contractor and compare it to your budget. Never go overboard the ceiling of your allocation unless otherwise the additional money will be worth the quality.
