Pool Planning Guide

It’s a big decision, one you have most probably been toying with for a few years. There is a lot to consider so, before you go and dive in the deep end, read on to find the best way to plan for a pool.

The summer climate in WA can be harsh, especially here in the Wheatbelt. Going out to your backyard and jumping into your pool to cool down certainly sounds glorious.

But why buy a pool?

It seems like a no brainer really, who doesn’t want their own private swimming pool? To get exactly what you desire from owning your own pool, it’s important to think about why you want it. Make a list, it will help with the design stage later. It may look something like this:

  • For the kids to learn/improve swimming
  • Entertaining friends and family
  • Exercise
  • Relaxation

What style of pool?

There is a large range of fibreglass swimming pools from Aqua Technics, Buccaneer and Sapphire available on our website Countrywide Pools. You will be able to find a design, style and size to suit your needs and budget.

Where will you put it?

If you live on a farm or a property with some acreage, then it is simply a matter of choosing your favourite spot with your favourite view. If you live on a residential block and are slightly more restricted it may be a little bit more challenging. Here are some of the things you need to consider:

  • Lot size and shape
  • Is the site accessible?
  • Overhead power lines
  • Drainage

Pool Maintenance
