Whether it’s your first pool or not, it’s easy to make mistakes in the process of building and maintaining you pool. We hope this quick hit list will help you avoid mistakes and save money along the way.
1. You get what you pay for.
Choosing a company to build your pool based purely on price? Think again. In life, you get what you pay for. That company offering to do it for half of everyone else, what does that tell you about the quality they are providing? A pool is an investment in your home and your life, be sure to consider quality and price when choosing the right company.
2. Take the time to learn how to maintain your pool.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, learning to maintain your pool upfront will save you quite a bit of money in the long run. You’ll need to understand chlorine and pH levels in your pool, water usage, filter cleaning, etc. Be sure that you have the ability to take care of your pool on a daily and weekly basis, preventing any major issues from occurring.
3. Inspect often.
Your pool is an expensive investment and should be treated as such. You need to know everything going on with your pool like the back of your hand. Whether it’s an imbalance in the water, a crack in the foundation, or noises coming from your filter – know what to look for and be proactive instead of reactive.
4. Have a question? Ask a professional.
Not everything you read on the internet is true. Not everything your neighbor tells you is true. If you have a question about building or maintaining your new swimming pool, ask the professionals you’ve entrusted to build it. One wrong piece of advice can cost you thousands of dollars down the road.
5. Choose the right pool company.
There are so many pool companies to choose from – it’s more important to choose the right company. Choose a company that will be there for you long after the project is done to offer peace of mind in the long run. This is an important factor that should not be overlooked. Think past completion and gain peace of mind. Your investment deserves it. You deserve it.
