How Much Does a Pool Cost?

From hi pages

Making the decision to install an inground swimming pool is the first step in a very long process.  There are myriad decisions to be made, materials to be chosen, designs, engineering, construction, etc.  Getting started is the hardest part, and even that step is riddled with decisions; What pool construction type, where will the pool be located, who will I turn to, are there municipal rules or restrictions, will I have pool fence and what type?  This post from Home Improvement Pages gives a great primer on getting the ball rolling, and helps the prospective pool owner with some often overlooked areas of concern.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

Thinking about installing a sparkling new swimming pool?

Tempting certainly, but you do need to do your homework first, and work out what you can afford, what type of pool is right for your home and who is going to carry the work out.

You also need to consider if a pool is going to increase the value of your home.

This article will help you work all this out, so you can make an informed decision and be taking a dip before you know it.

Planning your new pool
Planning is all about the practicalities of your new pool. This includes working out:

The size and shape of your pool. Have a think about who will be using it, and what you want to get out of your pool – is it for fitness, entertaining or just so the kids can have a dip?
Where you can site your pool. Your soil type, trees and how rocky your area is can all influence where your pool can go and how much it is going to cost.
Council requirements. You might need a permit to build a pool where you live. Your local council will also have regulations, such as how far you can build from the boundary.
Safety. You pool fencing needs to be up to spec, otherwise your pool installation could be illegal and dangerous.
