What do you need to know about swimming pool designing and building?

Having a swimming pool on your property can be a great investment, but there are some things to consider. Firstly, it is not guaranteed to add value to your house. Having an outdoor pool in lieu of a larger garden can make your home off putting for buyers. It is not worth constructing an indoor pool unless it is done as part of a wholly new property; Excavating enough room within an existing property will likely either be completely unfeasable or extremely expensive.

Your cheapest option will be an above ground swimming pool. Simply assure that you have the required space. You may want to consider removing any turf that the swimming pool would cover and replacing it with a new surface such as gravel or a patio. With some DIY knowledge and experience you can avoid an assembly fee by putting the pool together yourself. Constructing a below ground pool will require careful planning.

You should not need planning permission to build a pool on your property unless you live in a conservation area or if your property is a listed building. Having a simple shape for your pool will save a lot on designing and building it, as will using simple materials. Choosing certain options like mosaic tiles can add thousands to the cost. For an average sized, simple outside pool, having it designed and built will cost around £15,000. An indoor pool of the same size could cost around £60,000 or more.

Designing and building a swimming pool can be an expensive complex project: take the time to make sure that your selected tradesman is fully qualified and well experienced. You should be able to get an assessment of your property and quote free of charge, so use the opportunity to discuss your options with your prospective hire. They should be able to give you advice according to your budget. Tradesmen who work on swimming pools are virtually guaranteed to have pictures of completed projects for you to view, as well as reviews from their previous clientele. They may also be a part of a national tradesmans’ association, which can be a strong sign of their expertise. Your designer should have public liability insurance, and all of your tradesmen will need to be covered against accidental damage and liabilities.
