With our pools ranging from 4m to 13.5m, a question we are often asked is what size pool should we install?
There are a few things to consider when making the decision on pool shape and size:
With the above questions in mind, we suggest drawing a basic plan of your backyard. Note the distance from the existing dwelling to boundaries, include any other structures in the backyard like sheds and pergolas. Think about the position of existing trees, clothesline or other significant objects. It’s great to also include the size of available access for installation equipment. This will give you an indication of the available area for your new pool.
Note any easements on the plan. If you are not sure, you can access your title and property information at www.landata.vic.gov.au. You will not be able to install a pool over the easement, and what is contained in the easement will determine how close to the easement edge we can build.
It is best to allow a minimum of 1.2m from boundary fences and existing dwellings. This will not only allow sufficient room to move around the pool but it will allow enough access for the backfilling and concreting during the installation process.
Consider the pool in relation to existing or proposed entertaining and outdoor areas. Think about your outdoor furniture when determining how much space will be required outside or inside your pool yard.
Think about where you plan to position your pool equipment. (Pumps, filters, chlorinator for example)
Plan your safety barrier while planning your pool. Regulations regarding pool fences can be found at www.spasavic.com.au
Contemplate the big picture. Always have the finished project & your landscaping plans in mind. Consider your garden and options for paving. In most cases, our clients usually choose a 400mm coping paver around the pool. There are many options for the rest of your new pool area, you may choose to pave all around the pool, deck or perhaps exposed aggregate or grass is more your style.
