Plan your 2017 swimming pool project

Maryland Pool Contractors say, plan your 2017 swimming pool project now

Summer is over and swimming pool builders in Maryland and Virginia have breathing room and time and space on their construction calendars. The swimming pool contractors at Town & Country Pool Builders say now is the best time to plan your 2017 swimming pool project.

When you’re in the pre-planning phase the first thing you need to do is to put together a budget for the entire construction project. This will include:

  1. The pool
  2. The equipment
  3. Costs for ongoing cleaning and maintenance
  4. Increases in utility bills for running the pool equipmentswimming pool
  5. Planning for any landscaping or outdoor living space

Some things to consider for pool placement include, the entry point for either a hot tub or a swimming pool so it is easy for friends and family to access. Access to the pool through the kitchen or family room is better than through your bedroom or other private home space.

Plan your 2017 swimming pool project

When planning the pool placement, ask for a birds-eye view of the pool. This allows you to see how it will look in relation to the home and any other outbuildings you may have. Determine what trees or shrubs will be impacted, if any, by the placement of the swimming pool. You will also want to pay attention to the way in which the sun tracks across your yard throughout the day.

When looking for a swimming pool contractor, look for one who will help you navigate the maze of building permits that will be needed for your project. For safety and compliance reasons, every municipality has its own laws construction of swimming pools, fence requirements and yard/property line set backs.  Your pool builder will also work with utility companies to determine whether there are any buried utility lines.

Part of the placement of the pool will involve determining the slope of the land. The success of project will hinge on water flowing away from the pool, not into it. Prior to construction your builder will make certain there is enough space to maneuver in the backyard if there are any overhead wires.

Pre-planning of your swimming pool or hot tub construction project will help make the entire event go more smoothly and allow you to have a pool that your family will enjoy for years to come. If you start the pre-planning now, construction might be able to be started before the year is our and that means when 2017 rolls around you and your family will have a swimming pool that is swim-ready!
