What Is The First Step Towards Choosing The Perfect Swimming Pool?

5 Questions To Ask When Choosing A Pool

From Rising Sun Pools, Inc.

Deciding to install an inground swimming pool can be a monumental decision, but that is only the beginning.  Most people who have taken the intellectual leap to bring the recreation area to their backyard don’t know what the first step is to getting started.  That’s where this post from Rising Sun Pools comes in.  This post helps guide the first-time swimming pool buyer through the very first stages of designing a swimming pool by presenting the 5 key questions that need to be answered before beginning the process.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

One of the most frequent questions we get in the shop is “Should I get an aboveground Pool or an inground Pool?” The simple answer is that there isn’t a simple answer. Many factors go into choosing the perfect pool for your backyard. There are, however, 5 questions you should ask yourself to make the decision a little easier:

What is my Budget? Aboveground pools cost between $2,000-$8,000 to build. Depending on the materials you choose an inground pool can cost anywhere from $25,000 to $60,000. If an inground pool isn’t in your budget, it is easy to choose an aboveground pool. You can read more about the cost of individual pools here.
What are my city regulations? Every city has its own ordinances about how and where its citizens are able to build a pool. There are also specific ordinances about which types of projects need permitting. For example, did you know that the building permit for an aboveground pool is always the responsibility of the homeowner? Once you decide to build a pool Rising Sun Pools can help walk you through these regulations. We have collected some triangle city ordinances here.
What are my HOA regulations? Similar to city regulations, many Homeowner’s Associations(HOA) have specific rules for pools and other structures built around the home. Be sure to check with your HOA before considering a project to avoid fines and other headaches.
