Private house pool: selection criteria
The swimming pool, built in your private courtyard or in the house itself, will bring you, your family and loved ones many happy moments. It will be a great place for an active holiday. In this article, we will consider what types of pools there are, and determine their advantages and disadvantages.
The first thing you need to decide is where the pool will be located (inside the house or outside). It is advisable to make this decision together with engineers and designers. Most often, pools are built outside the house, but if you allow the area to better position it indoors. In this case, you can use it all year round. Under the construction of swimming pools it is necessary to take all the room in which to house all the necessary equipment. You can build a sauna next to the pool, and a bathroom, and a shower.
An ideal option for a pool inside the house would be its location in the basement or basement. This should in no case be located on the upper floors, otherwise you may be overtaken by undesirable consequences.
If you still build a pool outside the building, then you also need to take into account a few nuances. Remember that in such a pool you can swim only in good weather, although now they are doing “all-weather pools”, which in bad weather are covered with a special shed. Also in the outdoor pools always gets a lot of garbage. So you have to clean it often. In winter, such a pool will freeze. All these shortcomings can be eliminated by considering reliable protection. But there are such pools and advantages: you are closer to nature, and from this your rest will be more active; near the pool you can sunbathe in the sun; You can make a semblance of a beach nearby by pouring sand in which children will play.

You will need to decide how deep the pool will be, how wide it will be, what shape, and with which filtration system. There are three main types of pools: inflatable, collapsible and stationary. The most expensive option is a stationary pool, but it is more durable and reliable. They are usually produced from hydraulic concrete, which is then subjected to tiling. Another advantage of this type of pool is its large capacity. Often they are equipped with a function such as hydromassage. Inflatable pool type is suitable for those who install it only for children. In the assembled version, it takes up little space. The collapsible type of pool is suitable for children and adults, is able to withstand a significant number of people, but it is less durable and reliable.
Depending on the filtration system, there are overflow and skimmer pools. The choice depends on the shape of the pool. For standard rectangular and square shapes, skimmer filtering is suitable. Skimmer filter removes the top dirty layer of water, and adds a new layer of the same water, only already purified. Overflow pools are equipped with side gutters through which dirty water flows out, being forced out by clean water coming from the bottom.
Having decided on the location of the pool, its type and filtration system, you can safely proceed to the construction of the pool. The main thing is to use high-quality materials and adhere to technology so that the sealing does not break
