When looking at installing a pool on the Gold Coast, it is vital that you have a Pool Budget to begin with, doing this will give both you and the pool business some boundaries to function with. Unfortunately, not all pool construction outfits provide a great designer, so check that your voice is heeded and ask for details when discussing the project with the contractor. With that in mind we have put together a list of important questions that could help you when talking with potential pool companies and installers.
- Does your Pool Budget include altering the design of the pool?
- How many litres is the volume of the pool? (This is convenient also for when you need to figure out how many chemicals you’ll require to keep your pool clean).
- What type of warranty does the contractor provide for the pool, does it deal with everything?
- What type of Coping do you recommend? (This is the coating, if could be Tiles, concrete, or something like a Pebblecrete surface).
- What will be around the pool? (There is a good reason why lawn is not ideal in the pool vicinity, it will wind up filling up your filter with lawn clippings).
- Does your Pool Budget account for filter systems?
- And lastly, the big questions, does the pool builder understand pool safety laws in your region? Do they consider them during design and installation? And, are they ready to consult with your pool fence provider?
There are also a considerable amount of areas that may increase the cost of your pool.
Extra costs you might need to consider for you Pool Budget:
- Extra concreting
- Pool Safety Fence, – Glass, Semi-frameless, Frameless, Aluminium or a combination?
- Pool chemicals.
- Water (if from the council, or by the truckload if on tank water).
- Servicing/Maintenance (not for everyone, but if you don’t have the time to do it yourself, could be an alternative).
Pool safety fence inspector for certification (compulsory in all states in Australia).
Many people don’t consider the fence until after the pool has been installed, this can easily cause concerns when it comes to installing your pool fence because your fence is incredibly important and needs to be part of your Pool Budget. When you prepare for your project make sure that you consult a quality pool fence company in the design stage so you can get a fence created which will maximise the potential of your outdoor pool vicinity. It is also important to understand what kind of costs you may be up for. Because it can be very frustrating to spend your entire pool budget on the physical pool, only to discover that you can only afford a cheap, horrible looking fence. An aluminium pool fence is not something that you want surrounding your latest investment as they can quickly become an eyesore– pick something worthy that will improve the value of your pool.
