When the weather becomes freaky hot during summer, having a pool in your home can be a game-changer. Swimming is a healing balm that can be used in calming your nerves due to hot weather conditions, straighten your bones, and improve alertness. Swimming is good for leisure and a form of exercising the body. Swimming is not restricted to a particular age group or gender. 

Aside from the health benefits of swimming, having swimming within your home premises increases the property’s overall value. 

When you talk about swimming pool designs, numerous concepts are available to choose from when building your pool for your new home or upgrading existing swimming.

Below is a comprehensive list of pool design tips you can choose from:

Above ground swimming pool design:


  • Quick to install


It is the most straightforward above-ground swimming pool design. With few capable hands, you can be celebrating your next pool party in your quick-to-install pool.



  • Movable pool


Just as the name implies, a movable pool can be easily moved from one location to another. If you hope to change your residence, a movable swimming pool is a perfect choice for you.

Benefits of an above-the-ground swimming pool?

  • Cost-efficient 
  • A movable pool can be easily adjusted and suitable for people who change location frequently.
  • Suitable for a property with limited space.

Below ground Swimming pool designs:


  • Fiberglass swimming pool


A fiberglass pool is similar to a giant bathtub. This pool is designed using molded fiberglass and reinforced material, and it is built below ground. A swimming pool of this nature usually lasts for an extended period. But it would be best if you made provisions for changing the fiberglass once every ten years.


  • Cost 


Comparatively, a fiberglass pool is expensive compared to a concrete pool. The advantage of a fiberglass pool is that it saves you cost on maintenance because it is durable compared to a concrete pool.


  • Maintenance


Fiberglass does not change water chemistry, which means you only have to use less acid. Simply because of the non-porous surface of the fiberglass swimming pool, you don’t have to brush the pool surface often compared to a concrete pool.



  • Vinyl


The Vinyl swimming pool is one of the cheapest below-the-ground pool styles available. Unlike other below-ground swimming pools, a vinyl pool design is a unique work of art. The entire pool component is usually delivered in compacted form by the manufacturer. 


The first stage of installing a vinyl-liner pool is to create the space where it will be installed. The moment space has been completed, and the next phase is to install the vinyl pool into the excavated area and paneled to the wall. Vinyl pool construction duration is within the 3-4 weeks.



  • Surface layer


The vinyl pool has a smooth and non-porous surface which makes cleaning and stain removal easy.



  • Concrete pool


A concrete pool is familiar with below-the-ground people, and it is designed to owner specifications. Unlike vinyl and fiberglass pools, concrete pools cost less. The construction is usually done according to phases, including the pool designing, excavation, constructing the pool layer, welding and steelwork, and plumbing installation. The construction phase of the concrete pool usually falls within the range of 12-13 weeks.



  • Water-resistant capacity


Some industry experts believe that a concrete pool is best in areas where the summer temperature is a bit high and suitable in expansive soil areas.


  • Finishing varieties

What will significantly influence your concrete pool is your budget because the concrete pool is not limited to a particular finishing material. You can choose a material like plasters, paint, or pebbles for the finishing phase. 


A Swimming pool comes in different types. Either you are going for an above-the-ground or below-the-ground swimming pool structure. 

Before you think of going for either of the two, you should consider your budget and availability of space on the premises. Each swimming pool has its comparative advantage in the area of maintenance and suitability. When you finally pick a choice, ensure it fit your taste.
