Build a pool: Do not miss these 5 tips from Romaldi!
Many Swedes build pools to make the house a holiday paradise to enjoy during the summer. However, building a pool requires research – where should I have it, what is the price and can I build it myself? Here are 5 good tips for pool construction!
Tip 1: Make a budget
Do you want a small pool or a large pool? Do you want to dig in the ground or have a pool above the ground? Digging in the ground and tiling a pool is significantly more expensive than a pool built above ground. When setting your budget, it is also important to take into account any costs of excavation, assembly, plumbing, electrician and completion. If you are unsure about the cost picture, you can contact a dealer and book a home visit. This way you can get a quote and information about what ground work needs to be done.
Tip 2: Think of the plot
It is important that you take into account what your plot looks like when choosing a pool. A sloping plot has its limitations, while a flat plot means more freedom of choice. Look for a place on the plot where the pool is in the sun to get a more comfortable temperature in the water. Remember not to have too large trees near the pool, they create shade and easily litter the pool. To keep the pool clean, it can also be good to think about what material you want around the pool, lawn is rarely a good idea.
Tip 3: Invest in the width
It is better to take in width than length when it comes to pool. The most common pool in Sweden is 4 × 8 meters and rectangular. Experts believe that private individuals often make the mistake of building a far too small pool!
Tip 4: Quality for quantity
Building a pool is an investment and should increase the value of your home. Therefore, it may be worth investing in quality so that the pool lasts for many years to come. Many types of pool are easy to tackle and assemble on your own, but there are parts of the construction that are better left to an expert. Also invest in pool coverage and a good pool heat pump.
Tip 5: Find the right supplier
Once you have set a budget and decided what type of pool you want, it’s time to find the right provider. Through Servicefinder you can submit an inquiry and get answers from up to 5 companies. All that is left for you is to compare quotes and reviews and choose the company that is best suited for the assignment. But you can of course also turn to a dealer – they can often connect you with the right professionals.
