Some Top Reasons To Buy A Swimming Pool

by Pool Builders on 03-12-2012 in Articles

Firstly unless you hate water then why would you not want a swimming pool if you could afford it?

Well you maybe put off by what you consider is the enormous cost of installing and running a swimming pool, and whilst it is true that a basic in ground solution will work out at around £20-30k if done on a budget, and that it is easy to spend over £250k on a free form pool, it is also true to say that you can get a good sized round pool for less than £100. Indeed you maybe more surprised to learn that for under a £1,000 you can buy a metal frame set pool that is 12ft wide by 24ft long, meaning that you can actually have enough room to swim properly in, rather than just splashing around.

At £1,000 that means that you can buy a swimming pool for less than a third of the price of a good family holiday, and the pool will still be there to use the next year as well, and the year after that etc.

Nor should you be put off by thinking that you will need to be a Do It Yourself (DIY) expert to put one together. Indeed most large metal framed pools simply clip together and do not even need any tools at all to assemble.

Even a large swimming pool as described above can be put together in half a day by two people. The longest amount of time in the whole process will be filling the pool with water, which can take a day or two for a large pool (Note: Never leave a pool filling overnight, as often the water demand in your area will drop at night, and thus the water pressure will increase, meaning your pool fills up far faster at night as pressure increases - a recipe for a flood if left unattended!)

A swimming pool will also bring you new friendships as suddenly everyone will want to be your friend, and your social life will increase. Another good reason to buy a swimming pool is to keep fit, as swimming is a low impact exercise that anyone of any age can do without virtually any risk of injury. It is a form of exercise that you do virtually all of your life.

So if you have ever thought about buying one before, then why not jump in at the deep end so to speak and invest in one for this coming Summer.
