Bucks County Pool and Spa


Is there a better way to enjoy some quality time with friends and family than basking under the sun in your backyard pool?  We don’t think so!  But there is a lot to understand before building a swimming pool that meets your needs.  You have to consider purpose, site technicalities, size, budget, elevation, and much more.  Furthermore, there is pool maintenance to consider. While the actual maintenance is your responsibility, to build the pool, you need professional assistance.  We’ve made it easy for you to find an experienced, trusted, local pool and spa installer.  The vendors listed above are ready to help you get pool season ready!  Before reaching out for a quote, we have a few things you should consider.

Before Building The Pool

Before you begin contacting pool vendors, consider the reason for having a pool.  Will you be using it for strength training?  If so, a lap pool is the perfect choice.  Will it be a recreational pool for entertaining family and friends?  These types of pools typically have slides or a diving pool, maybe an alcove.  Do you just want a pool to dip into once in a while?  Consider a natural pool with a spa attached.  Regardless of which one you choose, be sure to understand what you want so that you can discuss with the pool installer.

Site inspection

Professional and experienced swimming pool contractors, like the ones listed above, will conduct a site inspection.  They create a geological engineering report of the pool site.  They will also look at the soil configuration using additional tests.  All of these tests and reports are to determine that the site is able to sustain a pool for a long time.

What Size Do You Want?

Determining the size of the pool you wish to install is dependent on a few different factors.  These include the budget, zoning restrictions, and the area available on your property.  Also, keep in mind that with an increase in size (in terms of length, breadth, and height), the budget will also increase.

Above Ground or In-Ground Pool?

If you are looking for a more permanent and stable swimming pool, an in-ground pool is what you need.  Compared to this, the above ground pools offer a temporary refuge while giving the freedom to take it along if you move to a new home.  For the in-ground pool, the contractors will need to do intensive excavation and soil testing.  An above ground pool is ready made and can be installed rather quickly.

Aesthetics

Pools are supposed to turn some heads with their attractive design and structure.  If you are looking to make a statement, make sure that the pool blends in with the surrounding architecture.  If you want to up the ante, consider building architectural pools or even infinity pools. You are only limited to your imagination when it comes to overall design.  However you choose to build your pool, our trusted local vendors listed above will take care of making your dream a reality.

Pool Construction Materials

There are many materials that can be used to install pools.  Depending on the type of pool you choose and the aesthetic you want to create, the materials will vary.  Fiberglass composite is extremely strong, lightweight, and flexible.  Concrete pools are popular, however, they have a shorter life span than the fiberglass pools. The third option is a vinyl pool that provides quality at much lower cost.

Saltwater Pools

It is slowly becoming more and more popular in our area to either install a saltwater pool or switch over an existing pool to saltwater.  Even though this is an emerging trend in our area, keep in mind that salt water pools have been used in other areas of the country for years.  They tend to be easier to take care of and the cost of maintenance is also lower.

Swimming Pool Maintenance Tips

Now that you know what type of pool you want, the size you wish, and the aesthetic you want to show with your pool, it is time to hand over the reins to the professionals.  Once they are done building the pool, you’ll have to either learn how to maintain the pool on your own or hire a professional pool service.  Below are a few tips to get you started with your new pool.

  1. During spring, remove the debris with a skimmer net and vacuum.
  2. Always keep the pool clean and tidy.
  3. Use a good, powerful water filtration system.
  4. Conduct regular water tests for pH levels.
  5. Make sure to brush off the residue from the pool sides after a few days.
  6. Use chlorine and algaecide in the correct quantities.
  7. During the fall, remove the leaves every day.  Otherwise, they will clog the skimmer and stain the pool liner.
  8. Close the pool before the winter season.  Before closing, check the pH levels, take out the ladders and handrails for storing in the garage.
  9. Conduct regular servicing of the pool equipment.  The water filters and other draining peripherals.
  10. Install winterizing plugs to prevent the water from freezing inside the pipes.
  11. Create a weekly vacuum schedule for the pool.
  12. Use backwashing to clean the pool filters.
  13. It will be useful to use a shock treatment after heavy rains.
  14. Conduct a routine checkup on the pool filters, water circulation systems, and the skimmer baskets. Plus, clean the skimmer baskets regularly.
  15. Adjust the water level to ensure the best experience.

Ready To Swim?

If you are ready to start enjoying summer by your pool, reach out to one of our trusted pool installers to begin the process.  Now that you know what type of pool you want, give the installers a call to schedule an appointment.  Explain what you wish to do with your pool, how you wish it to look, and get started on the construction process.  You will be enjoying time with friends and family lounging around your brand new Bucks County pool in no time.
