What to Consider Before Installing an In-Ground Pool

What to Consider Before Installing an In-Ground Pool

Here is what you should consider to ensure you buy the right in-ground pool.

Purchasing an in-ground pool is a steep investment. They require a large part of a person’s yard, and they can heavily influence your outdoor landscape’s overall appeal. You should take every precaution when you choose to get one installed. Being underprepared for an in-ground pool installation can result in you spending too much or buying a pool different from the type you want. Here is what you should consider to ensure you buy the right in-ground pool.


Pools can fluctuate in cost depending on the model that you wish to install. On top of the pool itself, you also want to think about what features you want your pool to have. After that, there are maintenance expenses you have to take into account, which will be recurring expenses. Every one of these variables needs to be accounted in your in-ground pool budget. If you don’t plan out your budget ahead of time and factor in all of your pool’s costs, you’ll end up running into expenses that you may have not realized came with the pool.

Duration of the Installation

Pools take a long time to install. They are enormous features to install on your property. If you want/need your pool installed by a certain time, it won’t be the best idea to start mapping out your installation the week before. There are many factors that influence how long the installation will take, such as how large the pool is, how many contractors you hire to work on the project, and what weather conditions your workers face. You should play it safely and give yourself ample time for your in-ground pool installation. Giving yourself more time allows you to recover from problems that may set your expected completion date back.

Who to Hire?

There are many pool contractors who would be willing to take on your in-ground pool installation project. But, not all contractors have the same credentials. You want a contractor with plenty of expertise in the field, and who has plenty of positive reviews from past clients. If the company you’re considering doesn’t have a website, or they don’t have many good reviews, it may be best to avoid them.
