Moreover, by adding accessories such as a spa, unique lighting, water effects and more, you can create a truly unique and spectacular feature for your yard that is also highly functional. Perhaps best of all, today’s in-ground pool kits allow homeowners to install their in-ground swimming pools on their own, saving literally thousands of commercial pool furniture dollars.
In-ground swimming pools can be constructed in a multitude of sizes, shapes and designs. Even standard, traditional pool design styles are numerous, providing homeowners with many great options to choose from. In-ground pools are also available for specific uses. For example, rectangular lap pools are ideal for those who primarily want to use their pool for training or low impact exercise. Custom shapes and depths offer recreational options for children of all ages, as well as those who are just learning to swim and others who simply enjoy relaxing on the steps or sitting at the edge of the swimming pool. Exercise and therapy pools are also available, and are designed to provide great health and relaxation benefits. These pools use specialized jets and varying currents for adjustable therapy sessions and workouts. While in-ground swimming pools are often installed outdoors, it’s also possible to install some models indoors for year-round recreation regardless of the rv pedestals weather.
As compared to above ground pools, in-ground swimming pools represent a larger and more permanent investment. Pool owners need to choose their preferred water sanitizing system and maintain their pool water for optimal quality, purity & health. An appropriately sized pump & filter system is required to circulate and filter the water, and aid in purification. Given their cost, in-ground pool owners typically want to maximize the length of the swim season, so a pool heater, heat pump or solar heating system is typically used to warm the water…depending on the weather and lifestyle of the owners. An automatic pool cleaner is a great time-saver for pool owners, and can vacuum the pool on its own, sometimes via remote control operation!
Even with the costs, inground pools offer many advantages that above ground pools simply cannot. One advantage is that in-ground pools allow for a greater range of activities such as diving, playing water sports such as volleyball or basketball, swimming laps, or using floats or water toys. Built-in swimming pools also offer greater design flexibility, and they are available in a wider range of shapes and sizes. They can also be custom-designed to your yard and preferences. Also, as previously mentioned, in-ground pools can increase property values and enhance the overall landscaping.
