Many people spend years dreaming about a beautiful backyard pool. But before you invest in a custom pool construction, it’s important to take a step back, think about the process, and do your research. The pros here at J&M Pools have outlined the 5 most important things to consider:
1. What do you actually want from a pool?
Consider the environment you want for your new pool: a place to entertain guests, a secluded and relaxing oasis, or an area for the kids to enjoy? These things can determine the materials used in the building process, the size and shape of your pool, and any add-ons like a spa or slide. Once you envision how your pool will be used, it will help you narrow down your options.
2. Think about location and landscaping.
The space around your pool is just as important as the pool itself. Do you want tree shade, access to an outdoor cooking area, or a show-stopping water feature? Beyond aesthetics, it’s also important to check your local zoning ordinances for pools.
3. Decide on your budget.
The cost of owning a pool is determined by size, shape, design, materials used in the building process, as well as the ongoing maintenance after the project itself, is finished. If you have an idea of how you want your pool to look, give us a call and we can provide an estimate.
4. Consider your water circulation and filtration systems.
A pristine pool starts with an excellent water pump and filtration system. Whether you decide on a traditional chlorine-treated pool or a saltwater pool, our experienced staff can help you find a reliable water pump and filtration system that’s affordable and efficient. If you’re unsure of your options, contact a member of our team for more information.
