    8 Key Considerations When Designing a Family Pool

    By Laci
    Not all private pools are built alike and we're not just talking about rectangles versus kidney shapes here. Each homeowner builds a pool for their own  specific reasons and the design of their pool will reflect ultimately that. Some people want that perfect vacation home getaway, and build themselves a cool lagoon. Some build long, deep rectangles for lap swimming, possibly without a shallow end since their goals are solely centered around exercise. While leisure is great, and exercise is encouraged, the largest category of people looking to add a new pool to their backyard, is parents seeking the ultimate fun spot for their children to learn to swim, enjoy many happy pool parties, and make endless summer memories from their own backyard.

    How much does it cost to install an Inground Vinyl Liner Swimming Pool

    By Laci
    "How much does it cost to build an Inground pool?" It’s a huge question, “how much is it going to cost to install an inground vinyl pool?” Short answer, “It depends who builds it.” Hiring someone to do the entire job will always cost you a great deal more than if you’re willing to roll up your sleeves and do any of the work yourself. Labor can account for up to half of your total cost for both the pool itself and the installation. This means that if you opt to do some of the labor yourself (or even the mass majority) you could easily save thousands of dollars.

    How much does it cost to install an Inground swimming pool?

    By Laci
    What a great question! Truth-be-told though, asking how much it costs to build a swimming pool is kind of like asking how much it’s going to cost to build a home. There is no real one-size-fits-all answer as costs are dependent on so many different variables from design, to materials, to location. The only real sure-fire way to get a realistic amount that you can budget around is to get quotes from contractors in your local area. That being said, we may be able to help you “ballpark” it (it’s just going to be a big ball-park).

    Pool Base Materials: Portland, Vermiculite, and Pre-Mix Pool Krete

    By Laci
    I know, I wish we could just lay the liner down and call it a day but every swimming pool needs to have a base. The purpose of the swimming pool base is to provide a smooth surface for the pool's liner. A smooth surface is less abrasive on the liner and makes it easier to keep the entire pool clean. There are four choices to use for the pool base.
