You might also need Synthetic Grass around the pool to make it look nicer, Bamboo Panels for your fence for privacy and decoration, a Garden shed to hide the pool motor and other equipment’s. And finally, the ongoing cost (in both time and money) of maintaining the pool
  1. How pool-friendly is the weather in your area?

Of course, you don’t want to go swimming on cold days and your pool might just turned into a giant block of ice therefore wasting the money that you put into installing the pool.
  1. How much value would you get out of a pool?
  • Quantifying the benefits, you and your family would get from a pool is practically impossible, but it’s important to think about nonetheless. Consider how many people would use the pool, how often they would likely use it, of course you need to be realistic about and what the benefits are to everyone.
  1. What if things change?
  • A lot can change over the life of a pool. The kids will grow older, becoming progressively less interested in doing cannonballs into the pool, and ultimately moving out. While you can’t know the future, think about the likelihood that a change in circumstances could impact the value you get from owning a pool.
