How to Choose the Best Location for Your New Pool

There are three words that every real estate broker understands and relies on: location, location, location. Similar to real estate, when you begin the process of purchasing your own home pool, it is important that you understand this aspect of swimming pool design. This is a simple concept for some and it is very difficult for others, but here are a few things that you need to remember when you choose the best location for your new pool:

1. Permanence

Remember that your pool location is going to be permanent. Keep in mind that you need to be pleased with the location of your pool because it will not be possible to move the pool without completely redoing the entire pool construction process.

2. Plumbing

Your backyard is the most common area for a pool, but this is also a very common area for items such as septic tanks. You cannot place your pool around your septic tank, so make sure that you know where your septic tank is.

3. View from the Home

A pool is a great addition to any view. If you are looking to add a great view from inside your home, consider placing your pool in a place that makes it visible from indoors.

 4. Sunlight and Landscaping

Every pool benefits when it is exposed to the best possible sunlight. Every home is different because of the lay of the land, the presences of trees, and the directional placement of the home. Always do your best to position your pool away from trees and directly in the sun.

Why should you avoid trees? Every year the leaves fall off trees and those leaves will not only pollute your pool, they will also serve as a possible clog in your pool lines. Make sure that your pool is located in a sunny area away from trees.
