How to choose a pool for a private house

A private house is not only a place for sweaty work, but also an opportunity to have a great time outdoors, relax and just enjoy leisure. Well, when on your site there is a brazier, a vegetable garden with fresh vegetables and a gazebo for emotional evening get-togethers. But nothing can be compared with the opportunity to plunge into the cool water when there is a 30-degree heat outside. Not always in the neighborhood is a river or lake. Therefore, a pool for a house is a real opportunity to cool off on a hot sunny day and become the owner of your refreshing mini-pond.

Types of pools

A country house with a pool is certainly not a cheap idea. However, I will tell you a secret - you can install it even with a small budget. Let's see what pools are.


Inflatable pool

An inflatable pool for the home is an opportunity to enjoy the cool water, not only for children, but also for adults. The Russian market is represented by a huge number of different models. They differ in their volume, ranging from 3 to 30 thousand liters, and the materials used in the production. Such pools can be equipped with an extra ladder and the simplest water filter. It can be safely moved and transported throughout the site. Assembly takes a little time, as well as dismantling. Inflatable pools of polyvinyl chloride are made. This is a fairly dense material. But it can be easily pierced and broken. They are not durable and quickly fade in the sun.


Frame pool

The frame pool for the house will require more time to install than the inflatable option. Its essence lies in a rigid frame. Small children are no longer floating here, since these models are quite deep and have a large volume. They are installed once for the whole season. Therefore, it is worthwhile to think in advance about its location. The service life of frame pools is 5-7 years, as well as fade in the sun. The package includes a ladder, water treatment facilities and a filter element. The latter is often not able to provide good circulation of water, and therefore it will be necessary to drain the pool regularly. For the winter it will have to be dismantled. The exception is expensive models made from quality materials that are not afraid of frost.


Fixed pool made of polypropylene or fiberglass

Stationary pool for the house of polypropylene or fiberglass - it is quite large and expensive product, which is installed on the site forever. Well, of course, until you decide to replace it. For the installation will require a pit and the allocation of such a place to which the car can drive. The thickness of the walls of the pool is about 1 cm, and he weighs quite a bit. Therefore, it is necessary to unload it where it will be all the time. In addition, you will need a plate under it, which will not allow the ground to sink. From the advantages of such models I want to highlight the durability, the ability to be equipped with various additional devices and filters. After installation, you will only need to equip a place to relax and decorate the area adjacent to the pool. This option allows you to avoid many works in the construction of their own hands. The size of these pools and their prices are quite different. There are already finished products, but there is an opportunity to order the right one. You can choose the depth, shape and volume of the pool.


Stone and concrete

The most beautiful and most labor-intensive pools for the house are stone and concrete. With the observance of construction technology, they can last for almost an eternity. In addition, there are a huge number of finishing options. From decorative stone to tile, mosaic and granite. This type of pool is the most expensive, since in addition to the pit it requires many other land works and material costs. However, the result will please any owner of a private house or cottage. In more detail about building a pool with your own hands, I will tell in one of the following articles. Do not miss it, it will be interesting.

How to choose?

  1. Before you buy a pool for your home, you need to think carefully about whether you need it at all. If so, then you already understand what functions it should perform. Decide whether it will be a pool for children or for all family members. You will use it all season or several times over the summer. Awareness of the conditions for the future use of the pool will save a significant amount of money.
  2. Decide on a budget. The price of inflatable pools varies from 3 to 20 thousand rubles. The cost of frame pools ranges from 11 to 90 thousand rubles, depending on the volume, materials and equipment. Polypropylene pools start from 30 thousand rubles for 2 cubic meters 1.3 meters high and reach 280 thousand rubles for a model with a capacity of 75 cubic meters, a height of 1.5 meters and a diameter of 8 meters.
  3. It is worth paying attention to the manufacturer. Despite the fact that China is improving its products every year, I would not advise buying a swimming pool manufactured by its eastern neighbor. European, and even Russian companies have proven themselves well.
  4. Find out what warranty service is available, specify its term and cases that it does not cover. Pay attention to the packaging and functionality of the filter element (if any).

Buy or build?

The question to buy or build a swimming pool for a house on its own plot is quite delicate and requires a subjective approach. The question is not only in terms of money, as the construction will be much higher. If you reside in a private house and want to enjoy some cool water in your yard, then the best thing to think about is building. Even if it will take more than one year, the result will please you. Otherwise, it makes no sense to fool around. It would be better to just buy a frame pool, which you can easily collect, take with you and, in extreme cases, sell.
