How will you pay for your swimming pool?

 Here are some of the ways in which you can pay for your family swimming pool:

  • Personal savings.
  • A loan for the project. Some pool companies work with lending institutions or you might want to check with your bank.
  • Home equity. A pool may add to the value of your property and the bank that holds your mortgage may be willing to offer a home equity loan

Know what you can comfortably afford when you begin researching your pool project. Don’t forget to factor in the cost for ongoing maintenance and for increases in your home utility bills for operating the pool. You may also see an increase in your homeowner’s insurance and you will want to account for that.

Talk with your swimming pool contractor and ask him for estimates on what potential increases in utilities might be and what the cost for ongoing pool maintenance and upkeep is. Being well-prepared with the pricing you will be paying after the project, will help assure you can get a pool you can happily afford.
