Whether this is your first time purchasing a pool or if you have done it before, there are mistakes that can easily be made and buyers need to keep a watchful eye out for themselves when it comes to making such a large investment. Here are some tips to be aware of when you come in for your free Pool-Quest consultation.
Choosing an inexperienced pool developer. Reading reviews, looking at models, seeing contractors actually at work – These are things you need to be looking at before you even consider walking into a pool store. In order to have a pool that will last a lifetime, you need to know that the people building it know what they’re doing. Would you buy a pool from a company knowing that they hire different contractors for every pool installation? You shouldn’t. There are companies out there that will use subcontractors that may have never worked on a pool before to reduce costs and boost profits. Make sure that you’re buying from Fort Worth’s Pool-Quest so this doesn’t happen to you.
Design your pool the way you intend it to be. You as a person have requirements of what you want in your pool and what you want to do with it. Don’t let things that any seller tells you or what you friends tell you alter what you’re looking for. Family oriented pools need to have safety measures taken to regulate how and who accesses the pool. If you’re looking for a fun pool with a diving board, don’t get talked into a large shallow pool. These are examples how salespeople and outside advertisers will try to change your taste in order to get a higher price.
Purchase for the long haul, and not up front costs. It’s always nice to have a smaller up-front ticket. What some people don’t foresee is that a black-bottomed chlorinated pool with a huge surface and shallow depth will burn chlorine and other expensive chemicals like a furnace, which will result in very high maintenance costs.
Sales Gimmicks always sound good. That’s exactly why they’re gimmicks! Write down the things you want and stringently stick to it. Unless there’s a feature that is absolutely essential to the function of your pool, you should not add any extras, no matter how great they sound! This may sound like torture, but in order to keep the price of your pool to a reasonable level – like you initially planned, you need a good helping of willpower.
