Video transcription: When thinking about installing your pool, thinking about where it goes may come naturally. This might be, ok, that’s the spot I’m definitely going to have my pool installed. Other properties might have tremendous flexibility. There can be a little bit of consternation about where that pool is exactly going to go.
When we’re generally talking about installation of a pool and you’re thinking about it in relation to your lifestyle, what is most ideal is that the pool becomes an extension of your living area. It’s an area that is connected to your house. You may want to see your kids swimming and so forth, which is an important factor as well.
Being able to look out of the windows onto something that, when you’re not swimming in it, let’s face it, is just an expensive water feature, this is an important factor for putting the pool in. When we put that pool in, that pool is going to stay in that position for as long as you own it. So some careful consideration about how that is done is a really important factor.
Yes, we have to take into consideration what the rules are and whether there are any issues in terms of putting in the pool there from another point of view such as pipes or things like main sewers and different things and certain setbacks from fences. But we have the luxury and the ability to even incorporate parts of the house inside the pool area.
You can never have an area that basically steps up or doors that open up and flows straight onto the pool area. That is an issue. You always need to have some sort of fencing between it, but you can certainly use a wall, modify windows and so forth so that they comply with the pool fencing code and allow that area to be basically connected to the house. That may or may not suit your property, it just depends.
But some careful consideration as to where that pool goes is a really important thing. Really we have a lot of customers who are out there who are building and designing their house so the whole pool is a feature. That is something that we think is tremendously valuable when it comes to not only your enjoyment but even resale.
So when we’re thinking about where that pool is going to go, at Compass, we put a lot of effort and energy into training our people so we’re in a position to come out, consult with you and really determine what we think is going to be the best place to maximize the enjoyment and the long term benefits of you owning a Compass pool.
