How to Choose the Right Swimming Pool

By Greg
There is no one best swimming pool to meet everyone’s needs or wants.  Each person needs something different.  But with so many options how do you choose?  The biggest question is whether you want to add an in ground or above ground pool.  There are pros and cons to each.  With an in ground pool, it is a permanent structure in your yard and adds immense value to your property.  There are also many more shapes, sizes, and options available with an in ground pool.  It is more aesthetically pleasing and can be used as a decorative or landscaping piece in your yard.  However an in ground pool is much more permanent so once its built, its there to stay.  An above ground pool is only semi-permanent, costs less, and requires less time to build.  The main drawback to an above ground pool for many people is that it is above the ground. This makes it less aesthetically pleasing due to it being such a large structure in your yard.  The option you choose must be right for you because there is nothing worse than having something you don’t like sitting in your yard.

Actually, solar pool heating is the most cost-effective use of solar energy in many climates. A solar system consists of a pump, filter, flow control valve, and a solar collector (panels).  On some systems your existing filtration system will act as part of the solar system requiring no extra equipment.
