Planning a new pool? Ask yourself why you want a swimming pool
Video transcription: I’ve helped hundreds of people plan their new pool. I really think that the three most important things to have a bit of a think about when you’re doing that is first the purpose, what you’re actually going to use your pool for. Is it for kids, family fun, is it just something pretty to look at, have barbecues around? Does it need to be suitable for anyone elderly who is getting into the pool?
The other thing is effort – how much effort you want to put into owning it. If you’re time poor and you do not see yourself out cleaning the pool or out there testing the water chemistry, there are certain things that you can do that can take a lot of that effort out of it.
A big thing a lot of real estate agents tell me is that position is a pretty big factor in the planning stages. If you’ve got a nice family home and you’ve got kids, you always want to make sure that you’ve got a nice area for kids to play in the yard and you’ve got your pool in an area you can see clearly from the house or off the al fresco area.
I think the purpose, what you’re going to use it for, how much effort and where it’s going to go are pretty important things to have a bit of a think about. Give one of the team a call today on 1300 667 445.
