Extras to Remember When Budgeting for and Buying a Swimming Pool

Do you remember the excitement a day at the pool would bring when you were a child? Now, as an adult, swim season is just as exhilarating! But as you move forward with your dream of a backyard pool, it’s important to make a plan. Here are some extras to remember when budgeting for and buying a swimming pool. This is why installing a swimming pool in your own backyard is guaranteed to be fun for the whole family. 

Pool Features to Consider When Buying a Swimming Pool

The features you add in and around your pool are the icing on the cake for summer fun. With pool features, you can customize your pool to be just how you want. At Energy Center-Manhattan Pool, there are many pool features to add for above ground, inground, or semi-inground pools. Here are some of the many options to consider. 

Inground Pools

With an inground pool, you can choose from lots of customizations for increased fun and aesthetics. By adding a tanning ledge or cuddle cove, you get fun extra seating to relax in. Laminar jets and additional lighting make your pool area a stunning destination especially when hosting others. For more pool excitement, add a basketball hoop or slide. Also, one of the most popular inground additions is a water feature such as waterfall or infinity ledge.

Above Ground and Semi-Inground Pools

When it comes to above ground and semi-inground pools, there are some additions to consider as well. With Radiant Pools®, you can add water features and fun lighting. Additionally, consider stairs or deck additions for above ground and semi-inground pools. Check out this pool installation and how a deck will create comfort and accessibility for the semi-inground pool.

Pool Accessories to Plan for When Buying a Swimming Pool

In addition to fun pool features, you need to budget and plan for pool accessories. Some pool accessories are needed to keep your pool safe and ready for swimming while others are desirable add-ons. 

First, you will need the basic pool equipment such as filters, pumps, and heaters. In addition, a pool cleaner such as a vacuum system will help remove debris or build-up. There are also several types of pool covers to consider such as an automatic cover, safety cover, and solar cover. Each has their own convenient and effective features. And of course, pool maintenance and care requires the proper chemicals. If this part of pool ownership feels confusing or overwhelming, we can help!
