Are you tired of waiting for the public pool to open just to enjoy swimming? Do you prefer freshwater than sea water for swimming? Do you hate the thought of swimming with several other people? If all your answers to these questions are yes, then may be its time that you take a swim to a private pool. But what could be a better idea is to have a pool of your own, where you have total control on everything.

Just in case you have considered building a pool to satisfy your swimming needs and preferences, you have to know the types of pools that you can have at home. There isn't just one kind of swimming pool. There are other several types that could vary as to materials, duration of construction, durability and maintenance. You may want to get to know them better as owning a pool is not all about just having the best swimming experience. It also involves maintenance to be able to help their owners get what they expect from such addition.

In Ground Pool

The first basic type of pool is the in-ground pool. The word itself denotes that it is embedded to the ground; meaning you have to dig a whole and build the pool in there.

Since this option involves heavy construction, you may have several considerations, here are some of them:

  1. Permits: Since this addition is permanent, you may have to know the permits needed for this addition.

  2. Location: the location of the pool should be considered as you may accidentally destroy certain wiring or plumbing that is connected to your basic utilities. This is also a consideration as there are basic rules on how far the pool should be from the house to ensure safety.

  3. Materials: there are different types of materials used to create an in ground pool. There is concrete, vinyl, fiberglass and Gunite. Each type of pool has different effects and different durability. The best water effects can come from a vinyl material. As to durability, fiberglass is deemed long-lasting. As to cost, concrete or Gunite is the cheapest.

In-ground pool is the best choice for those who want to improve their homes aesthetically. The way in-ground pool is constructed creates a different impact on your lawn compared to the other type. With this pool, you will not see the basin structure or even the plumbing system sticking out. Hence, it is cleaner to look at, more sophisticated and subtle.

Above Ground Pool

The term itself denotes that the pool is situated above the ground. These types of pool are easier and faster to build because there is no digging required. In fact, people who want their swimming pools to be permanent can have this option. However, your swimming needs may not be met as these types of pools are usually small. Most above ground pools are for dipping. But depending on your space, you can make an above ground pool that will allow you to swim several laps just like you do in an Olympic sized pool.

Above ground pools are more economical than in-ground. This is because there are no heavy constructions involved. This also means that they are easier to install. The only problem with this type is the servicing. Most companies would deny owners of contracting the maintenance because the parts may vary to that of the in-ground pool counterpart. Another problem is the cleaning method is quite different. Also, proper installation must be secured to avoid leaking that could also flood your homes easily.
