Getting the Most Value out of Your Pool Renovation

by William Hayes on May 30, 2017

Adding a swimming pool to your home can be a fantastic choice for several reasons. Swimming itself is a healthy activity and it’s also a social one. People that own pools aren’t strangers to partying in their garden with drinks, friends and some delicious grilled food. People that own pools have a fantastic exercise option in their backyard as well, and it also adds value to a home should you want to sell it in the future. It’s surprisingly easy to maintain and most pool cleaning services are accessible, affordable and very friendly.

So with that in mind, let’s take a look at how you can get the most value out of your pool renovation. The project itself can cost a lot of money, but here are some ways to ensure you’re getting the most out of the money you pay.

Building Your Own Pool

If you’re tech and DIY savvy, you could potentially create your very own pool in the backyard. However, unless you have the tools and expertise to dig out the ground to carve out a pool shape, you’re probably limited to building an above-ground pool. While above-ground pools can still look beautiful and be practical, they do take a bit of work and they’re not as common as in-ground ones. Building your own pool requires some knowledge of plumbing and the materials needed, so don’t attempt this without expert advice or supervision since you could turn your expensive DIY pool project into a huge waste of money.

Pool Accessories

A pool will look naked and dull without accessories surrounding it. However, these accessories can occasionally cost more than you’d expect and it won’t take long until you pass your budget. In order to cut the costs of pool accessories (or pay for better quality without sacrificing more funds) check out sites like DontPayFull.com to get some great deals on several different retailers. Pool accessories such as deck chairs, floats and tables can be costly despite looking so cheap and flimsy, so it’s always to get something better quality that will last longer and be more sturdy.

Insurance Costs

One of the biggest mistakes that people make when getting a pool is that they forget about increased insurance costs. If you have children around, then you need to make sure the pool is raised above the ground and that there’s no way for your child to wander into the pool. You also need to invest in a safety cover that goes over the surface of the water. Alternatively, you could install a mesh cover, but the gaps need to be small enough that your child doesn’t fall through. It also helps to have safety equipment such as lifeguard floats handy. If you don’t invest the additional money into these safety features, then your pool could end up increasing your home insurance costs.

To conclude, getting a pool is a fairly expensive investment, but there are plenty of ways to save money on it so you get the most value out of it. Luxury pools are fantastic to have, just keep in mind it could end up costing you more than you anticipate!
