If happiness is a day by the pool, then unlimited happy days are headed your way! Here at Energy Center-Manhattan Pool, we are thrilled to be helping you fulfill all your pool dreams and create the perfect gathering place for your family. If you have a pool installation coming up within the next year or so, you should start preparing now. Here are 10 tips for prepping for a new inground pool installation.
1. Consider Location
Location, location, location! You will be spending an abundance of time at your inground pool, so installing it in just the right spot is imperative. To be most satisfied with your pool location, consider things such as how the sun hits the pool at various times in the day, the proximity to trees that produce shade or falling leaves, and the line of sight from the pool to your house or to other homes.
2. Contact your HOA and Homeowners Insurance Agency
This is an important pre-installation step. Now is the time to acquire a pool permit or receive HOA approval if it’s required for your area. Further, contact your homeowners insurance agency to discuss any necessary changes to your policy as a result of your inground pool addition.
3. Prepare for Pool Maintenance
With a new inground pool comes a new routine to learn. Pool maintenance is necessary but doesn’t have to be overwhelming. We are happy to get you set up with all the needed equipment and supplies to help make ongoing pool maintenance a breeze, such as a pool cover, pool cleaner, and water testing and treatment components.
4. Choose Fun Additions
Before installation begins, decide if you will want any fun additions such as lights, a slide, diving board, or fountains. Contact us if you need help deciding on what works best for you.
5. Prepare Pool Safety
Without a doubt, this is a critical step to consider and take action on before your pool installation begins. Make pool safety a priority. Take the necessary steps to have a fence installed with a self latching gate as soon as the pool is completed.
6. Consider Landscaping
Once your inground pool is installed, you will want to have sod and other landscaping repaired. While you wait for the installation to be complete, research what and where you’d like the landscaping alongside your new pool.
7. Decide on Pool Surroundings
Decking, stone pavers, and brushed concrete are all possible options for the walkways surrounding your inground pool. You can pick what works best to meet your family’s needs and desires.
8. Select Pool Accessories
What accessories complete your dream for family fun at the pool? Select any poolside furniture, pool toys, outdoor grill, and more that you want to enjoy.
