Finding the Perfect Spot for Your Pool

09 February

Installing a pool at home takes a lot of planning and preparation, and the first thing to think about is where to install the pool. To narrow down your options and eliminate your worries, here are some considerations in finding the perfect spot for your pool.

Think About the Pool’s Use

Knowing what your pool will be used for can help you determine its spot in your home as well as the type of pool to get. Is it for exercise or recreation? Will the pool be available for visitors or is it going to be a private pool?

If it’s to enjoy the summer sun, then your pool should be in an open space outdoors where the sun shines brightly. However, if you are planning to install a plunge pool that’s meant for cooling-off, then it might not be wise to install it at the sunniest part of your home.

How Much Space Does Your Home Have?

After identifying what your pool will be used for, you have to know if your house can accommodate that kind of pool. A pool that can accommodate both your family and visitors would require a wide-open space, while a spa pool or a plunge pool can be installed in a smaller yard.

If your house only has a small area to work with, you might want to install your pool near or next to your home. Otherwise, provide some extra space for chairs, tables and other amenities for relaxation and recreation.

Consider Ground and Surface Level

Finally, it is important to install the pool on a level surface. Installing a pool on a slope or an uneven surface would mean you may have to retain some soil with a small wall etc. There could be extra site costs involved if this is the case. Find a spot in your yard that has a nice level area.
