If you want to have a new pool installed on your property, you may assume you can manage this job on your own; you might reason that a new pool just involves digging a pit, lining it with concrete, and then adding the filter and pump. However, there are actually some very good reasons to rely on a professional swimming pool builder when you want a new pool on your property, even if you have some experience in construction and other similar projects. Note a few of those reasons here, and this can ensure you make the right choice when it comes to getting a new pool installed in your yard.
Coping refers to the line of reinforced concrete or other material that runs around the rim or edge of the pool, connecting the pool to the decking. This coping is very important for the strength of the pool structure, as its reinforced material will actually keep the concrete of the pool strong and secure, and help seal the edges of the decking so it doesn't crack. If you're not familiar with how to install coping around your pool's edge, this is one reason to leave this job to a professional installer.
Soil under a pool needs to be very compact and strong, or the pool may settle and shift and then crack. A pool installer will know how to check the composition of soil for strength or how to treat it with lime or clay to make it more compact and able to hold up the heavy weight of a pool. He or she will also know to check for large ant colonies, moles and other underground pests that can actually cause that ground to eventually sink or shift, taking your pool with it!
Size of pump
You may think that you can easily choose a pump size based on the amount of water in your pool, but an installer will know that your choice is not quite that simple. How often do you plan to use the pool, and how many people will typically use it? The more people that use the pool, the more body oils, suntan lotions, shed skin cells, dirt, human hair and other debris your pool will need to pump and filter. An installer may also note if there is a higher risk of debris from nearby trees or a busy roadway settling onto the pool's surface and may suggest a stronger pump and filter to keep the pool clean.
