The swimming pool contractors from Tipton Pools in Knoxville, Tennessee offer 3 important pool questions to answer when you’re working with your pool contractor. It’s not that you can’t make changes to your pool once it’s been constructed, but it could lead to a MAJOR project and when you’ve just had a pool constructed, it may not be in the cards.

The biggest way to assure you’re getting the pool of your dreams is to know what functional items you want and to understand your own lifestyle and to get a pool that matches those.

3 important pool questions to answer

These questions will get you started.

  1. What size? How many people will be in the pool, on average? If you’re going to host a few massive parties once a year, you may not need a huge pool if the average number of people in it will be four — for example. The pool size may be determined by the size of the space into which it will fit and how much yard space you want to devote to it.
  2. What kind of steps do you want? This may seem like a small decision, but the size and type and placement of the steps can impact the amount of swim space, the ease with which you can get into and out of the pool and the aesthetics. You could have a ladder, beach entry or steps constructed from the pool building material — major decisions.
  3. If you’re having a hot tub or spa constructed as part of the pool project, do you want it: elevated, a swim up style or at a location altogether separate from the swimming pool.
