DIY swimming pools, or Do It Yourself swimming pools, are pools that you can install by yourself. Before going out and buying a swimming pool kit, there are several things you will have to consider.

First you should think about the size of your pool. Make sure that you have enough room for the pool. You will also have to provide a deck or an area you can walk on around the swimming pool. Then you have to consider how to get all the equipment you need to your backyard. You may want to dig everything by hand, but this will take a lot of work and even then you are still going to need access for the trucks that delivers things like fiberglass or cement.

The size and shape of your pool will also be an important consideration as is its relation to other buildings on your property. Do you have enough protection from the wind? How close will it be to your neighbour´s property? How much sun will you get? You will also have to think about what you are goind to do with all the clay that you take out of the hole you dig. You will probably need to have this trucked away.

Other things to consider include heating and filtering. Plumbing and electrical work need to be done so you will have to bear this in mind when budgeting if you can not do it all yourself.

After carefully considering all of these questions you are ready to look for a DIY swimming pool kit and begin the installation work.
