Is This the Year Your Family Gets a Pool?

Is this the year your family gets a pool?

Your family has been asking for years. Is this finally the swimming pool summer for your family? Before you dive in, know your options.

Here’s everything you should know before committing to any backyard water feature plans, from pools to hot tubs and landscaping elements.

How much flexibility is in your budget?

Budget is the biggest factor in your pool purchase and installation, and any landscaping you complete to accompany it.

Your options include:

Every type has the potential to look great on your property. It’s all about doing it right for your unique space.

Your new mini pool

A mini pool will cost somewhere between $10,000 – $15,000 installed, depending on the size and quality.

Small pools and swim spas give your family a swimming pool experience without the requirement of a large, open property.

These are especially popular in densely built areas like the suburbs in north Mississauga and Oakville.

Yours can start as a basic plunge pool to cool off or float in while reading a great book – think benches with massage jets.

It is built like any inground pool, customized to fit smaller spaces.

These mini pools integrate into your landscaping with waterfalls or other water features (spill over spas) and provide plenty of social space for friends and family (and nice private space for you and your partner).

The only limit is your:

  • Space
  • Imagination
  • Budget

Custom vinyl-lined pools

Your custom vinyl pool can take any shape you want. It can work with your current landscaping or provide the centerpiece for a whole new backyard design.

It’s custom-fitted with liners that retain an even vinyl thickness throughout the pool. That means long years of use and no fadng. You can also upgrade to insulated walls, a more efficient (and nicer feeling) option.

You can also customize with lots of unique features,

  • Molded easy-entry steps
  • Natural stone coping
  • Waterfalls
  • In-pool lighting
  • Seating areas with massage jets

Your pool can be so much more than a cool space to float (of course, it can be that too).

It starts around $40,000.

Inground hot tubs

Maybe you’re more of a lounger.

An inground hot tub gives you a relaxing, warm space to spend nights under the stars, year round, at a price comparable to a standard hot tub.

Skip the unsightly square tub sticking out like a sore thumb on your patio. Your inground hot tub melts into the landscape, especially with features like natural stone coping and steps, or a waterfall.

These inground hot tubs are an accessible option for anyone considering a tub purchase already. Let your imagination run a little, and consider the lifestyle that’s within reach.

Make your backyard an oasis

Homeowners use swimming pools and hot tubs to turn their backyards into private escapes for family and friends.

No matter what type you want, you can add many different features to turn the rest of your backyard into a relaxing oasis.

  • Waterfalls
  • Deck jets
  • Tiki bars
  • Pergolas
  • Outdoor kitchens
  • And so much more!

Instead of driving 5 hours to the cottage, why not invest in your backyard and enjoy the outdoor beauty every day of the week?
