A swimming pool in your own back yard sounds great but are you able to build one of your own? With the correct equipment, a clear plan, and by subcontracting plumbing, digging, and the electrical work, the answer is a resounding ‘yes’.
You have a decision to make. You can choose between a natural swimming pool, and a regular swimming pool. Swimming is one of the simple pleasures in life, and a welcoming activity during the hot sweaty summer season. Your own swimming pool in your back yard will be a great way to spend quality time together as a family or to entertain guests into the wee hours of the night, under the starry skies, in your patio/deck, by the swimming pool.
One of the first things you must do is to get a license allowing you to go ahead with your plans to build a swimming pool. You may however want to go from the regular tiled swimming pool, in to a eco friendly natural swimming pool, which will be ideal for wild swimming, which is all the rage in Europe now. This swimming pool is similar to a swimming pond, thus ‘swimming pond’ rather than a swimming pool, will be a better way to describe it. Even though it is a natural swimming pool filed with lots of plants, that can truly help you emulate a truly natural swimming experience, it will be 100% free of chemicals, and have clean, clear, pristine water.
There are several steps you need to make, to design and build a natural swimming pool, DIY style. First thing you must do is to come up with a plan, which includes your preferential features all within your budget. The simpler your design is, the better it will be, thus keep the bespoke designs to a minimum. A flat bottom rather than a bumpy one is much easier to clean the pool, and will be simple enough to dig.
The simple box shaped swimming pools are much cheaper to build. There are a variety of pool fittings to choose from, but it will help you if you refrain from tricky pool fittings, to keep building your pool as simplistic as possible.
Another major thing you should focus on is the drainage system. Since you are not building a pond, planning proper drainage is important. You should make sure you surround you pool with good channels of drainage. Maintaining pristine water, requires swimming pool pumps, thus buying a good in ground pool pump will be necessary in building your own wild swimming pool.
You would also need to invest on good pool covers Melbourne, as during the winter you may need to cover your pool, in order to protect it. There are many pool shelters available such as, solar blankets, leaf nets, flesh covers and more, that you will probably be spoilt for choice.
If you do follow a good plan, you may easily be able to build your very own natural swimming pool, as a DIY project. The cherry on the cake will be watching your kids, have a frolicking time in the pool with their friends, in the pool that you built with your own hands.
