Apart from increasing the home’s value, a swimming pool makes a great recreational element. The size of a swimming pool depends on many factors. For instance, how much you’re willing to spend will determine the size of your swimming pool. Contractors usually offer a cost estimate per meter. The larger the size of the pool, the more it will cost. The pool will also require special equipment such as a chlorinator, a heater, a filtration system, and a pump. Large pools will require larger servicing equipment, so more cost. But this is not the only factor that determines the size swimming pool, there are more determinants. Read on..
The type of swimming pool will also determine the size. Inground pools are more stable than above-ground pools. This means that in-ground pools can span more in size compared to above-ground ones. Infinity pools, indoor pools, and plunge pools require more time put into their design, which affects their size. Again, the purpose of your new swimming pool will also determine its size. For example, a swimming pool meant purely for recreational purposes can come in any shape and need not be as big as a lap pool, which better suits professional swimmers.
How large your family is, also determines the size of the pool. You want to construct a pool that is large enough to accommodate your whole family and a few guests. A family of 5 can comfortably enjoy a medium sized family swimming pool. However, a family with several in-laws will have to be bigger. If you have kids under 12 years old, you may need an additional baby pool which translates to more space needed.
How much space you have to spare in your compound will also obviously determine the size of an outdoor swimming pool. There are several factors to consider here. First, you need to leave enough space for easy maneuver, especially if you have small kids that can wander off into the pool. Secondly, A pool is not complete without a poolside area for loungers and furniture. The more the loungers you want, the more space you need. A qualified pool constructor can conduct an in-home survey to determine the right size of a swimming pool.
Swimming pools require regular maintenance. How much you are willing to spend on maintenance also affects your choice of size of your new pool. Smaller pools only need basic cleaning and chlorination. Large pools, however, may require vacuuming and larger filtration systems keep them clean. The cost of heating the pool water at night also counts when determining the size of the pool.
When deciding to have a swimming pool constructed, size is one thing, but above it all is the soundness of the structure and safety. Pool floors and walls need to be structurally sound. The pool shell must be designed and constructed in such a way that it has great water tightness. Additionally, the floor and the wall surface of the interior must be properly finished with reasonably impervious material that is smooth a smooth and attractive. For safety purposes, your pools need well-installed safety steps around the walls.
