3 tips for choosing your pool shape
Deciding to invest in a swimming pool can be a daunting process because designing and installing a swimming pool is not as simple as picking out a new piece of furniture. There are many factors to consider from budget to safety considerations and style. The shape of your pool can speak to the type of person you are; whether you opt for a basic oval pool, square shape or more extravagant double roman end shape.
If you’re thinking of installing a pool, here’s what you need to think about:
Buying and installing a pool can be an expensive activity – make sure you research plan your budget before you start digging. Some companies charge more than R1000 to drill just 1 meter and considering that the average size of a pool is between 18m² and 40m², this could add up quickly!
An open area in your backyard needs to be carefully examined before calling out a pool installation company. Think about the fact that your pool needs a lip around the perimeter and cannot be too close to the house or else it becomes a safety hazard. Make sure to seek advice from professionals before allocating a piece of land for your pool.
Users vs uses
Your pool should match your needs. If you are looking to train for the Olympics, your requirements will be vastly different to those of someone who wants to simply cool down in summer. You need to consider who will be using your pool and for what.
A kiddie pool which is intended for babies and young children can be smaller and is also suitable for the elderly who do not intend to do any extensive exercise. In addition, a pool intended for training purposes would need to be long and rectangular whereas one intended for frolicking could be kidney, oval or L-shaped.
Taking these simple factors into account can help you to design and implement the perfect pool for your home, lifestyle as well as your friends and family who intend to use it.
