5 Mistakes in Pool Design

pool design mistakesKingsport, TN

So, you have decided to have a pool constructed for your home in Kingsport. This can be a great decision, but also an important one. It can also be stressful if mistakes are made during the design of your new pool. Don’t let this happen to you. Today on the blog, check out this list of five common mistakes in swimming pool design and how the right pool contractor in Johnson City can help you avoid these blunders.

Mistake 1: Building at the wrong dimensions

Make a pool too deep and it is not feasible for family activities, especially if you have young children. A deeper pool is also more expensive to maintain because it takes more water to fill it and more energy to heat it during the cooler months of the year. On the other hand, a shallow pool can make it too dangerous to dive or swim. Promier Landscapes customizes each pool installation project to the specific needs and desires of the client, while also factoring in the dimensions of your yard to determine the proper depth and size of your new pool.

Mistake 2: Missing out on functional features

A sun shelf, an integrated spa or a water feature: these elements put the “fun” in functional and create a space where your pool serves as a source for relaxation, entertainment and exercise. Once your pool already is constructed, it can be difficult to add new features such as these. Our pool designers in Bristol will go over all of the options before the first digging begins on your project.

Mistake 3: Taking shortcuts

Certain pool contractors will opt for low-budget materials to lower overall cost. We find that this is more expensive in the long run, as using inferior materials to construct a pool means it gets damaged more easily and often, leaving you with the repair bills. Promier Landscapes uses materials to make your pool durable for the long run as well as aesthetically pleasing.

Mistake 4: Omitting safety features

Having the proper safety features in place is a key component of any pool design project. These features include non-slip surfaces on the pool deck to prevent accidents or falls, installing a pool cover to ensure safety when the pool is not being used and having proper fencing installed around the pool area for both privacy and security. Features such as these are only important but, often, legally required to meet local safety regulations and standards. Failure to include them can lead to severe consequences, including fines or even deconstruction. Our team at Promier Landscapes knows the municipal codes and standards in Kingsport, Johnson City, Bristol and the surrounding areas in Tennessee.

Mistake 5: Inaccurate estimates

For any construction or renovation project, you should expect the contractor to provide an accurate estimate of the projected costs – accurate being the keyword. If your contractor misjudges the budget for your pool construction project, this leads to extra expense, unplanned financial strain and can have you feeling dissatisfied about your new pool even before the work is complete. At Promier Landscapes, we break down the entire projected cost for a project before the first shovel of dirt is dug out of your backyard. This financial transparency ensures you know where your money is going.
