What Size Should Your Pool Be?

Deciding to install a pool is an easy decision, but what size should your pool be? The answer isn’t as complicated as you think. All you have to do is answer five simple questions.

  • What Size Is Your Family?

This really is an easy question, but don’t stop at the number of people who live in your home. Think about your friends and extended family. Consider your kids’ friends and families who may come for a swim.

  • How Much Yard Space Do You Have?

Installing either an above ground or in-ground pool is an intense landscaping project. You’ll need to have ample space for the pool you choose. Be sure you factor in additional footage for a walking perimeter, fencing, and perhaps a pool house to store equipment and furniture.

  • How Deep Do You Feel Is Safe?

The answer to this question depends on a number of factors. Do you have kids? If so, how old are they? Perhaps your goal is daily exercise. In that case, you’ll need a much deeper pool. Do you want a pool with depth graduation, or a standard depth?

  • How Will You Use the Pool?

People desire pools for many reasons. Pool parties tend to top the list, followed closely by exercise regimens, and a lovely place to relax. The way you plan to use your pool is helpful for your pool contractor to know.

  • What Is Your Budget?

This can often be the most challenging question of all, however it’s essential you go into the project with a budget in mind. Tell your contractor if you have a strict sum to spend. It will play a major role in the options they present you. If you’re more flexible, give them a financial range into which you’d like to fall.
