How to Choose the Perfect Spot for Your Pool, Kihei, Hawaii

Getting an above ground pool will provide your family with a way to cool off and have fun during the summer. While the installation process doesn’t require excavation, it’s still important to find the proper place to put it. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when deciding where to erect your swimming pool.

3 Factors to Consider When Choosing an Above Ground Pool Location

1. Proximity

above ground poolIf you have small children, situate the pool so that it’s close to your home and in clear view from your interior windows. You’ll be able to keep an eye on your kids when you quickly run inside for more sunscreen or snacks. Close proximity to your home also creates a quick path inside so that your swimmers aren’t tracking water all around the yard. If you’re interested in privacy while swimming, put the pool further away from your home’s windows.

2. Shade

If you burn easily, install your above ground pool in an area of the yard that gets shade from surrounding trees. If you want to tan while swimming, keep all or most of your pool situated beneath the sun. Additionally, consider the time of day you’d swim. Light and shade placement shift as the sun rises and sets, so put your pool in an area that’ll receive the type of sunlight you want during that particular time of day.

3. Placement

Think about the long-term plan for your outdoor space. For instance, if you want to install a deck or patio in the future, situate the pool in a location where it won’t interfere with your project. You may be limited on where you can place a water feature, like a pond or fountain, as it’s connected to your existing plumbing pipes. If you aren’t sure where you’re placing the feature yet, put your pool in a corner so that you wont have an obstacle in the middle of the pathway back to the house.
