What to Consider Before Buying a Pool

Buying a pool is a cherished dream for many, and this investment can create wonderful memories for you and your family. To ensure a smooth execution of such a project, it is crucial to be well-informed. In this article, we will explore different factors you should consider when you decide to take the plunge.

Pool Size and Design

The first things to consider when buying a pool should be the shape and size. These factors not only determine if it fits or if it is a good standalone option, but also if it complements your yard and home design. A pool becomes the centrepiece of any backyard, so it is essential that its size, shape, and colour harmonise with the overall aesthetic and ambiance of your house.

Intended Use

It is equally important to think about the functionality of the pool. What do you want the pool for? Is it for spending quality time with family, engaging in sporting activities, or simply lounging around? Perhaps your main goal is to have a space to swim laps in the comfort of your own home. Alternatively, you might be seeking a place to unwind at the end of a long workday. Different features cater to various needs, such as a spacious swimming corridor for unrestricted swimming, a relaxing spa area, a splash deck for sunbathing or for kids to play safely.


The time required for installation varies significantly depending on the type of pool. Fibreglass Pools, for instance, are pre-made at the factory and can be installed within a week under the right conditions. On the other hand, concrete pools offer flexibility in shape but take longer to construct as their structure is entirely built on-site.

Budget Considerations

Pools are available to suit every budget. The wide range of pool shapes and sizes available today allows you to choose a pool that fits your financial plan. However, it’s important to take into account other factors such as landscaping and finishes as well. Once you decide it’s time to get a pool, establish a budget you are comfortable with, and seek professional advice to explore your options accordingly.

Long-Term Maintenance

Long-term maintenance is an important aspect to consider as well. Fibreglass pools require less maintenance compared to other types, thanks to the gelcoat that inhibits algae growth. Additionally, fibreglass pools are highly durable, and we are so confident in their longevity that we offer a Lifetime Structural Warranty on all our pools.

Now that you are aware of what to consider before buying a pool, you can make a well-informed choice when deciding on the pool that best suits your future needs.
