What will it cost to get a pool? This is one of the most frequently asked questions that the swimming pool contractors from Tipton Pools in Knoxville, Tennessee get asked by potential swimming pool owners. Owning a pool isn’t as expensive as it once was, but it is still a hefty investment — in fact, it might be as much of an investment as the purchase of your home.

How can you make certain you get the most swimming pool for your swimming pool dollars? A pool is a major undertaking and an ongoing responsibility and cost to the family budget, but when you consider how much you may spend for a two week family vacation and come home with memories — fantastic memories — but not much tangible reminders, a pool is tangible. A swimming pool is an investment in family fun and makes your home a staycation spot like no other.

A swimming pool is a gift and an investment that keeps on giving — for many months of the year, long after the tan from your vacation has faded!
