Things to Consider: First Time Pool Owner

Buying a pool for the first time is super exciting, but it can also be very confusing. With all the tips and tricks swimming around the internet, it may be hard to figure out what’s right and what’s wrong.

As professional pool builders in the Kansas City area, York Companies strives to bring our pool knowledge to the community. Because of that, we’ve created this basic guide on things you should consider as a first time pool owner.  

What kind of pool do you want?

First thing’s first, there are a lot of pool options out there, so before you give someone a call, you should decide which pool options are best for you. Choices you may want to consider include:

  • In-ground vs. above ground
  • Fiberglass vs. concrete
  • Saltwater vs. chlorine
  • Indoor vs. outdoor 

The best ways to make those decisions is by considering your budget, yard size, how long you want the pool to last, how long you want the building process to take (concrete takes a lot longer), etc. 

Can you handle pool maintenance?

Pools aren’t just an install and let it go type of deal. You have to be willing to put in work to maintain your pool’s beauty. This includes clearing out debris, purshing the walls, balancing pH levels, vacuuming, and more. If you don’t have the time to put in the work yourself, you can always hire a pool cleaning company to give you a helping hand.
