Here are some tips on what you must do and things to be definitely avoided while planning, designing and installing a swimming pool in your house.
As for every big investment, the planning process for your pool,(must be initiated with a brief research on the various types of pools (there are three types of in-ground pools, namely, concrete, vinyl and fibre glass) and the latest technological options for water cleaning and filtering systems.

The pool shape and design is also very crucial for planning your dream pool and you must browse through swimming pool photo galleries available online or in magazines to identify the kind of design you would like to create.
It may be a good idea to also talk to friends and neighbours who have constructed swimming pools in their premises to understand challenges which they may have encountered and to learn from their experiences.
Based on the research you must prepare a broad budget of how much it is going to cost to install the swimming pool and also work out the long term operating and maintenance costs. While planning for your pool build in energy efficiency by investing in enclosures and covers for the pool to minimise evaporation of water and installing timers for pumps and lighting to minimise water and electricity wastages.
Since pools in residential area are subject to building regulations don’t forget to get the required approvals from the local government before initiating construction. Also don’t forget to check with your insurance company whether having a swimming pool would affect your home owner’s policy in any way and include the additional insurance cost in your long term budget. Do not site the pool in a low lying part of your property to avoid flooding during rainy season. Last but not the least do not hold back on any special feature or accessory which you may want to have in your pool, always remember remodelling a pool is much tougher than the initial installation.
