A new pool is a significant addition to your property. That is why we suggest seeing it as an extension of your home – and home life. Like your home, you want to make sure that your pool is beautiful and functional. The best way to do this is to work with a pool company in Vancouver. Before you reach out to such a company though, we suggest that you answer seven questions for yourself…

Seven questions to consider before contacting a pool company in Vancouver

1. Why do you want a pool?

This is important because it will reveal the goal of your pool installation. If you have more than one reason for wanting a pool, try making a list of all of the reasons, then ordering them from most to least important. The top reasons should then serve as your guide for style and features.

2. Who is going to use the pool and how often?

There are a range of needs and wants that family members of different ages bring to the pool design process. Therefore, you want to be clear on who is going to be making the most use of your new pool. For example, if you are a hardcore swimmer who trains four times a week, you likely will not have the same needs as a family creating a pool for their children to use on weekends.

3. Where would you place your pool?

If your yard allows for a variety of placement options, consider the pros and cons of each. As you review the pros and cons, pay particular attention to safety. If you have children who will be using the pool, make sure that you place it in an area with room to create an adult supervision space. If you have a smaller yard, do not worry; a pool company in Vancouver will be able to advise you on how to optimize the area you have available.  

4. What style of pool do you want?

This is the creative part, so let your imagination run wild. Think about the style you want for your pool – and what your favourite materials are. If you are already feeling overwhelmed at the thought of this, wait and speak with your pool company in Vancouver. They will be able to discuss your wants and needs with you and suggest design ideas that reflect them.

5. What features are important to you?

As with different styles, there are a lot of different pool features for you to choose from. Some of our favourites include saltwater sanitization systems, motorized pool covers, and LED accent lights. Again, your pool company will be able to guide you through selecting the features that are right for you. By thinking about what you are interested in now though, you will be ready when the discussion about features arises.

6. Who will maintain the pool?

It may feel like once a pool is in, the job of caring for it is finished – but it is just getting started. There are regular cleanings and maintenance that is needed in order to keep your pool beautiful and safe. Given this, it is vital to think about who will be maintaining your pool. If you and your family will not be able to care for the pool, make sure you factor professional cleaning costs into your yearly maintenance budget.

7. What is your budget?

When you are building a new pool, it can be easy to go wild with materials and accessories. By having a budget in mind in advance, you will be able to ensure that your pool does not go over budget. Once you have a budget, make sure you set aside 15-20% of it for contingency costs.
