Summer is just around the corner. If you’re anything like us, you just can’t wait to take a dip in the water. But what if this year you didn’t have to go to a public pool? Enjoy the comfort of the water from your backyard with your very own pool. At Energy Center – Manhattan Pool, we are here to help you with picking the perfect pool.
The right pool for your backyard
There are three types of backyard pools you can get: inground, semi-inground, or above ground. Inground pools are one of the most common types of pools, and may be what you have in mind when you’re thinking of a backyard pool. This involves both excavation and installation to get your pool ready to go, so if you want an inground pool this summer, you should start the process immediately.
But what if you want an inground pool and have a sloped backyard? A level backyard is necessary for an inground pool. However, you do have another, similar option: semi-inground pools. Semi-inground pools are similar to inground pools, except they are more customizable to your backyard. You will still have the elegant look of an inground pool, but with sidewalls that can be customized to fit your backyard.
If you want the summer fun of an inground or semi-inground pool but aren’t ready to invest, an above ground pool may be right for you. These pools can be customized for any budget and backyard, and are quicker to install. If you’re ready for some summer fun as soon as possible, find your fit with an above ground pool.
Maintain your pool without a care
Are you hesitant about buying a pool because of the maintenance? When you buy a pool from Energy Center – Manhattan Pool, maintaining your pool is a breeze. You can buy any and all pool maintenance products from our store, which means you can be confident that you are buying high quality products that are safe for our pool. Our pool experts can also help with any issue you may need, such as:
- Taking care of your pool cover
- What to do if wildlife gets in your pool
- How to check for a leak (and how much water loss is normal)
- Preparing your pool for the winter
- Taking care of your pool in the winter
If you have any questions about maintaining your pool yourself and/or want some help with pool maintenance, you can always request a pool service and our experts will be on it.
Choosing the right accessories
As if picking the perfect pool wasn’t hard enough, you will also have to choose the right accessories for your pool. It may be hard to think about spending more money on accessories when you’re already investing in your pool, but accessories can truly make your pool experience better.
The proper pool equipment, such as a pool heater, can really make or break your pool experience. Have you ever avoided the public pool during the first few weeks of the pool season because the water’s too cold? What about on a cloudy day? With a pool heater, your pool season and temperature is controlled by you.
What about pool covers? Pool covers are essential for the safety of both your pool and your family. But, they can be a pain to put on and take off. When you get an automatic pool cover, your pool cover will come on and off with just the turn of a key, making your pool experience more enjoyable.
Adding lights to your pool brings a whole new level of fun to the pool experience. When the sun goes down, the party can continue with lights in your pool. Lights also add an extra level of safety: with the lights on, you can see underneath the pool water better at night than you can without lights.
And what about pool maintenance accessories? At Energy Center – Manhattan Pool, we sell four types of automatic pool cleaners that can help you with our maintenance. Our expert staff can help you choose which option is right for you and your pool. Plus, while you’re there, you can pick up some quality pool chemicals. The pool chemicals we offer at our store are high quality and safe for your pool. Pool chemicals sold at big box stores are often cheaply produced and do not provide the same quality care for your pool.
Fun for the whole family
Now, we all know what the most important reason for picking a perfect pool is: it is fun for the whole family. Young or old, there is just nothing that brings family together like playing in the pool.
If you have kids that you just can’t seem to get away from a screen, your own backyard pool is a great solution. There is just something about playing in water that spans all generations. Whether you have a swimming race, play some pool games, plan a polar bear plunge for the winter, or just relax, a pool is fun for the whole family.
If you’re more into exercising, a pool is perfect for that, too. Forget the bicycle. Don’t bother with a run in the blazing summer heat. Burn some calories in the pool with swimming and other low-impact exercises.
And if you’re not quite ready for a normal vacation this year, plan a staycation! Who needs a hotel pool when you have one in your backyard. Take a trip around Northeast Kansas, maybe go crazy and make a day trip to Kansas City, then spend some time in your pool on your staycation.
