When thinking about installing your pool, thinking about where it goes may come naturally. This might be, “Oh, okay, that’s the spot I’m definitely going to have my pool installed.” Other properties might have tremendous flexibility, and there can be a little bit of consternation over exactly where that pool is going to go.
Pool is an extension of your living area
When we’re generally talking about the installation of a pool, and you’re thinking about it in relation to your lifestyle, what’s most ideal is that that pool becomes an extension of your living area. It’s an area that’s connected to your house. You may want to see your kids swimming and so forth, which is an important factor as well, but being able to look out of the windows onto something that, when you’re not swimming in it, let’s face it, it’s just an expensive water feature. This is an important, important factor for installing the pool in, because when we put that pool in, that pool is going to stay in that position for as long as you own it, so some careful consideration about how that’s done is a really important factor.
What are important factors affecting the pool position
Yes, we have to take into consideration what the rules are, and whether there are any issues in terms of putting the pool there from another point of view, such as pipes, or things like main sewers and different things, and certain setbacks from fences. But we have the luxury and the ability to even incorporate parts of the house inside the pool area. You can never have an area that basically just steps up, or doors that open up and flow straight on the pool area. That’s an issue. You always need to have some sort of fencing between it. But you can certainly use a wall, modify windows and so forth, so that they comply with the pool fencing code, and allow that area to be basically connected to the house, which may or may not suit your property. It just depends.
Select the best position for your pool
But some careful considerations to where that pool goes is a really important thing because really, we have a lot of customers who are out there. They’re building and designing their houses. So the whole pool is a feature. And that’s something that we think is tremendously valuable when it comes to, not only your enjoyment but even resale. So when we’re thinking about where that pool is going to go, at Compass, we put a lot of effort and energy into training our people. So we’re in a position to come out, consult with you, and really determine what we think is going to be the best place to maximize the enjoyment and the longterm benefits of you owning a Compass pool.
