In Ground Pools Add More Value
There are many benefits to be gained from installing a In-Ground Swimming Pool!
As we all know above ground pools are often not expensive to buy and they only take us a few hours to install and set up. In addition they can be easily installed without any professional help at all. Also they are always less expensive to maintain for all the years that you own them and this can be a major benefit. However, despite all these interesting facts and other benefits you will probably find that most people will usually prefer to own an in ground swimming pool if they can find a way to afford it.
An In Ground Swimming Pool Always Looks Great!
To be honest we will all agree that all “in ground” swimming pools do look a lot nicer than most of the standard above ground pools that are currently available. These built-in pools will also last for a lot more years as they are more permanent structures and of course they often have the benefit of being much bigger as well.
Unfortunately it is not usually possible to dive in to the pool or actually swim some laps in most above ground swimming pools, but even with a standard sized in ground pool you will be provided with these great options. These pools are not however a cheap swimming pool option. And of course if you are part of a larger family or often have lots of your friends round for social events, sunny barbecues and days of fun and partying in your backyard then you will find that an in ground pool will always provide you with much more room and space for many more people than an above ground swimming pool.
An In Ground Swimming Pool Will Last Much Longer!
Because all in-ground pools are a permanent structure they will always be a great addition to any home and they have the potential to last for a least twenty years or even loner. These pools are designed for permanence and have concrete around both the sides and bottom of the pool, thus making it extremely difficult for leaks to develop and cracks to occur. Because this type of pool is specifically designed to be a more permanent installation and because they are therefore longer lasting they are bound to be a more expensive purchase than what you would pay for an above ground swimming pool.
In my opinion though these extra benefits will far outweigh the costs involved especially if you look at this over time. By installing an in ground swimming pool at your home you are adding almost instant value to your property and this also will give you many more years of great fun and ongoing enjoyment than the above ground option. Best of all you will not have to worry about replacing your pool in just five or six years as with the above ground and normally there would be no need to worry about having to repair any punctures or tears that might occur in your pool liner, which could happen with above ground swimming pools.
There are more benefits as an in ground swimming pool will also give you much more flexibility too. While you are having your in ground pool designed you will be able to choose one which hopefully has both a shallow area for just wading and swimming in and also a deep end or area for diving into.
Customize It Any Way You Want!
This means you will be able to buy a low diving board or even a high one if the deap area is deep enough. You could also get a waterfall style seating area just for relaxing and hanging out at your leisure. In fact you should slo know that while although most in ground pools will come in all the standard shapes, sizes and configurations from the manufacturers, you will aslo be able to actually add any custom touches you want and even design a totally customized swimming pool if you want. This is a great advantage!
However, having an in ground pool designed and then installed will obviously take you somewhat more time to get done before you can use it. Be aware that you will need to hire a professional swimming pool contractor to help you with these types of projects. They will help you select the right site for your pool at your home, consider the options and choose the final style and major features of your new swimming pool, and then finally your pool contractor will be able to get to work on your chosen design. Fortunately they will also acquire all the legal permits you need and then of course they will be able to dig the hole for you ready for your new pool installation.
You Will Be Able To Swim and Dive
Once they have dug the right sized hole they will obviously start building the frame for your new swimming pool. They will then add a sand layer to the bottom of it and continue by installing the pool’s liner. You should always have a choice of different liner materials that can be use for your pool with the most common liner being vinyl. In addition fiberglass and concrete may be offered as two other popular alternatives for in ground swimming pool liners. You should therefore look quite closely at each of the different liner options offered and then discuss the differences and benefits of each with your contractor before making that final decision.
Be aware though that fiberglass liners can sometimes look and feel just like a bathtub and you may not like this. Also remember that vinyl liners will need replacing at some points over the years and that in comparison a fiberglass liner will not. We find that the concrete liners are a very common choice amongst in ground pool buyers because they will last so much longer and it is quite easy to create custom designs with them at the time when the concrete is initially poured to create the pool.
Best Option for Bigger Families and Party People
In addition, you can also really enhance the look and feel and the overall design of a concrete swimming pool liner over time as well just by extra decorative tiles to create the effect that you want.
To many of us it may seem that there are many choices and decisions to be made when choosing an in ground swimming pool design, but as soon as it has been completed you will be totally thrilled with the result. So much so in fact that every time you walk outside your home and see your new pool it will put a smile on your face!
Build one and enjoy it!
