Here are items to consider and talk with your pool contractor about for your pool project:

  1. In-pool lighting. Fiber optic or LED lighting adds beauty and safety to any swimming pool.

  2. An outdoor living space. If you have the budget, consider what you’d like in the pool’s outdoor living space

  3. The type of deck and its size

  4. Accessories such as a diving board or slide or fountains or even a deep end.

  5. A hot tub or spa is a luxurious addition to any swimming pool and you may want one as part of your pool project.

Before you meet with a pool contractor, spend some time on line and looking through magazines to find a pool style that suits your lifestyle and fits your family’s pool budget. Ask your pool contractor to allow you to look through his portfolio of completed projects; you may find one that you really like that you could put your own unique spin on to truly make it your own.

Begin your pool project research now and once summer rolls around you may be able to yell, “Everyone into the pool!”
