Your pool builder will help you make an informed decision on the type of filter and pump system your pool will need to best operate. Will you want a pool heater? What kind of safety cover will you want for your swimming pool and will you want an automatic cover installed during the project? You may also decide you want in-pool lighting, a spa or hot tub built in and other amenities you will need to accept or reject during the construction phase.
