If you’re thinking about working with a local swimming pool design company to install a custom, built from the ground up pool before the summer begins, there are several things you’ll want to keep in mind. Most notably, all swimming pool designers / installers are not alike.
In the early phases of this project the goal will be is to hire the best possible company, that can do the work professionally and efficiently, at a fair and equitable price.
You’ll want to get multiple bids while at the same time, keeping in mind that the cheapest bid isn’t always the best bid. It’s always best to do your homework before you sign your name to any contract.
First things first
It can be easy to get carried away in the swimming pool design phase, so it’s best to go into things with a solid, realistic budget. This will allow you to pick and choose features based on what you have available to spend. If your kids are really pushing for a water slide, but your budget won’t allow for something extravagant, you’ll need to make this decision in the design phase.
In-ground or above ground
This is also a decision you’ll need to make during the earliest part of the planning phases. If you’re leaning toward an above ground pool, this may be something you can install with some friends. On the other hand, if you know that you’re wanting an in-ground pool, this is most certainly something you won’t be able to do on your own (unless you happen to be an experienced swimming pool designer / installer.)
Size, shape matters
This will tie into your budget, because you’ll need to decide how much pool you want. The shape of your choice will also be important. As we’ve said in the past, a kidney-shaped swimming pool isn’t ideal for doing laps. Will you be using your pool to entertain? Will you mostly use it to keep the kids busy during the summer? Both of these things are important to consider when it comes time to pick the size and shape of your new pool.
Chlorine or salt water?
When it comes to installing a pool in Denver, CO, you’ll need to decide whether you want a salt water pool or if you’re leaning toward a chlorine-based pool. There are pros and cons associated with each, so the best thing to do (if you’re still on the fence) is to contact a reputable installer and ask them to go over the upsides and downsides of each choice. This will allow you to make the best and most informed decision as possible.
