We get asked lots of questions and no doubt you’ve got plenty that you want to ask as well! Here are some that others have asked and hopefully helps you out to making a decision on whether or not you want a pool, and what’s involved.
Having a swimming pool at home offers many more benefits than simply helping you cool off in summer – although there’s nothing like the feeling of jumping into the water on a hot day. Here are a few more benefits that pool ownership has to offer:
1. CONTRIBUTES TO A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
Having a pool at home is a great way to fit exercise into a busy schedule. Swimming is a terrific, low impact way to keep fit and stay healthy. It provides an all-over body workout that uses nearly all of your muscles and protects your joints from stress and strain. Swimming is also a peaceful and calming activity that helps you unwind.
2. AN ALTERNATIVE FOR COUCH POTATOES
Television and computers are quickly becoming the entertainment activity of choice for kids and teens. This is leading to an epidemic of childhood obesity and has also been shown to affect socialisation, inhibit creativity and cause Vitamin D deficiencies. A backyard pool is a healthy alternative to inactive interests.
2. THE LIFE OF THE PARTY
Entertaining is easy when you have a pool. Fire up the BBQ, bring out the banana chairs and serve up some punch while your friends and family enjoy each other’s company and the great outdoors.
Three quotes are a good comparison, anything over this and you are getting yourselves confused.
It’s so important that you get ALL of the information upfront, and as with most things, if you go with the cheapest quote… you will get what you pay for. Do a spread sheet of all your quotes so that you can determine exactly what you are getting from each pool builder and can compare apples to apple. If one quote is very cheap, you may get stung with variations and then the price usually goes over the dearest quote that you have obtained. By doing up a spread sheet with each component listed out, you will be able to see what is missing from the various quotes and make a more informed decision on who you want to work with.Download our pool build comparison spreadsheet
