Now that summer is around the corner, our thoughts turn to looking forward to summertime activities. If you have been considering looking at Swimming Pools, hot tubs, or spas, you have a lot of options to choose from. It’s a good thing to do your research now into planning your ideal landscaping and working with a pool or spa dealer who can help you plan for the right features for your property. You have time before the installation to also learn about the day to day and occasional maintenance that would be required for your pool or hot tub, and decide for sure if it’s for you.
You can choose from above ground or in-ground Swimming Pools Norfolk. Above-ground pools can range from 18 feet wide to 24 feet across. The typical package for an above-ground pool includes a ladder, a filter pump, a ground cloth, a pool cover, and a maintenance kit. Above-ground pools even offer choices of decorative pool liners to emulate the look of mosaic tile. The liner extends all the way up to the railing, not just on the bottom of the pool, giving the edge of the pool above the water line a decorative touch. Liners are made of UV-resistant material that is also resistant to fungus, bacteria, and pool chemicals.
If you choose to install a new pool, newer pools are now made of fiberglass, giving it added durability and making it easier to keep clean. They are made in quite a few shapes and sizes, so most people should have several possibilities to choose from. In-ground Swimming Pools Norfolk are a bigger undertaking, as they require excavation of the yard. However, the addition of a pool can increase your home’s resale value.
These pools have a vast choice of pool liner patterns to choose from. If you currently have a pool without a liner, adding a liner to your existing swimming pool, particularly an older one made of aging concrete can drastically improve its appearance, making it look brand new. Swimming pool dealers also sell durable pool covers. These are custom fit to any swimming pool, and can be used all year long to protect children and pets from falling in as well as keep the pool clean.
