Looking to Buy a Pool? Ask Yourself These Questions First

Buying a pool is an exciting process! At Leisure Pools, we offer a wide array of pools to fit any need, function and desire, so you may find it’s challenging to narrow down your pool choice. To help guide you along the path to your perfect pool, we’ve put together a list of questions to ask yourself. You may find that as you answer these questions, you’ll feel less overwhelmed and better prepared to make a pool choice.

1. Who Will be Using the Pool?

Families with children or grandchildren may need different features in their pool than someone who does not plan to have kids use the pool very often. For example, if you have kids, a pool with a flat bottom is great for pool games, or you may want a deep enough depth for a diving board or water slide. If you or a family member enjoy lap swimming, than you may want to choose a pool that has an unobstructed swim corridor. Leisure Pools offers pool designs that are perfect for any age or use, so it’s possible to find pool designs that will meet everyone’s desires without sacrificing.

2. What is Your Budget?

It’s exciting to buy a pool and there are so many considerations like the size of the pool, features and add-ons, landscaping, decking, pool furniture and decor. It’s helpful to start with a budget and then work from there and plan your pool space. You also don’t have to do it all at once. You can start with the pool installation and then plug away at the landscaping and decor over time.

3. What Swimming Pool Features are Important to You?

Leisure Pools offers an array of great features, and some go beyond just a swimming pool. We offer pool designs that have built-in spas and splash pads. Or, you can add a tanning ledge, water feature or even opt for a swim jet system. There are so many great combinations of pools in our offering with all different features, so think about which are most important to you.

4. What Kind of Space Do You Have to Work With?

The space you have available will also determine which pool you can fit. Just because you have a small space, or challenging space, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a pool. Leisure Pools offers plunge pools that can fit small spaces, or kidney shaped pools that can fit a space where the pool would need to curve. Your backyard space may also determine whether you can accommodate a vanishing edge pool–which can be stunning in backyards that allow for it.

5. What Aesthetic Do You Desire?

Leisure Pools swimming pools come in two main styles: rectangular or free form. A rectangular pool has sleek, modern lines whereas a free form pool has soft, flowing curves. We also have more traditional shapes like Roman style, or you can even have a combination of rectangular and free form with the Mediterranean. The shape and design of the pool you choose comes down to what style fits your backyard space, the function you desire and what you feel is most aesthetically pleasing to you.

6. Is Color Important to You?

At Leisure Pools we offer seven stunning, brilliant colors to choose from. These gelcoat colors have a built-in sparkle that looks like diamonds shimmering across the surface of the pool. The gelcoat also offers a smooth finish.

7. Is Quality Important to You?

Like any product category, the quality of a fiberglass swimming pool varies from company to company.  At Leisure Pools, we have a reputation of manufacturing a very high quality swimming pool with an excellent warranty for a very reasonable price. In fact, our swimming pools come with a lifetime structural warranty, and if you choose our Composite Armor, you also receive a lifetime structural osmosis warranty. Testing shows that a Leisure Pools Composite Armour™ Full Vinyl Ester Resin Swimming Pool is 111% stronger than a standard fiberglass swimming pool.
