Pool building tips

An integrated pool can make a beautiful, functional, and lasting addition to your home. But it is also a big financial investment. Depending on factors ranging from backyard conditions to the complexity of the design, a custom pool is a major project costing thousands of dollars.

For this reason, some homeowners are looking for ways to save money when building a pool. This is possible, among other things, by means of an above ground pool. These only cost a few hundred euros and are the best way to quickly have a pool in the garden. But you can also build a pallet pool yourself, then you can get away with it even cheaper. However, if you decide to have an in-ground pool, check out our pool planning tips below first.

Gartenpool bauen Tipps

STEP 1: Choose a pool type

The first step is to decide what type of pool is right for you. The budget, the lifestyle, but also the space in your garden play a role in whether an inground or an above-ground pool is most suitable. You should also leave enough space for other things in the garden.

STEP 2: Accessories and Features

Also consider the shape, size and depth, as well as the overall appearance of the pool. You should also consider the function you want your new swimming pool to have. There are nearly endless ways to upgrade your pool from surface and decking to fire and water features to outdoor kitchens, lights and more. However, the more special requests you have, the more expensive the pool construction will be.

STEP 3: Find a contractor

We know that many would like to build a DIY pool, but it is not really recommended. Unless you understand the trade and know what you are doing. Otherwise, look for a pool builder. Finding the right contractor to build your pool requires research and verification.

STEP 4: Obtain permits

A building permit for a pool is not required (in Germany) up to a size of 100 cubic meters. If you live in another country, find out about the regulations. Getting a permit to build a pool is usually not difficult. Permits are there to ensure your pool is safe. If you don’t comply, you could face some hefty fines. After getting your approval, you can finally start building the pool of your dreams!

STEP 5: Excavate and Build

After you have created your pool plan and found a pool builder, the actual construction of the pool begins. Here are the steps to build the pool:

  • Excavating the hole in the ground
  • Lay steel construction, plumbing and electrical installation of power and water lines
  • Installing the concrete, fiberglass, or vinyl shell
  • Construction of the pool terrace
  • filling the basin
  • Adding chemicals and mechanical start-up

It’s not quite as easy as the construction of a garden pool was presented here, but it is still possible. If you want to build a pool yourself, get help from people who know the subject.
