What are the best swimming pools for home?

I have a country house in the North of Wales and in summer I love to cool down in  the public swimming pool in town. But I think that when one is on holiday should get completely relaxed and going every day to the city centre stresses me a lot. So I'm thinking of buying a swimming pool. Here my doubts: do I need to apply for a permission to build a pool? And once installed, what maintenance would it require? Tghank you.

My job is building swimming pools so I can give you some sure information. First of all, inground swimming pools are made of reinforced concrete. Therefore, for this kind of pool you have to respect some rules and apply for a permission. The price of inground swimming pool is quite high, and anyway not cheaper than £ 20,000. Moreover, you have to take into account maintenance costs as well. So I suggest you to think well before deciding to buy one. Maybe, for your need it's better to buy something less elaborate. If you are sure that an inground pool is what you need, contact a reputable company since a work bad done can cost to you much more money in the future.

Consider that if you build an inground pool you need to carry out a rigorous study before. That's why I choose to install a semi inground pool that you can place above the ground or partially underground. This type of pool doesn't need any special permission. My pool (as the one in the picture in attachment) is very easy to install and much cheaper than a traditional swimming pool. It is 52” high and quite large. I paid about £ 1000 for it and I'm definitely satisfied. You can also choose the material of the outer surface. The maintenance is pretty much the same for prefabricated pools and inground concrete pools. Alternatively, there are inflatable pools, I know, they are not as nice as inground or semi inground pools but the result is the same and they are very handy and cheap.

In ground pools require a quite laborious maintenance. You have to keep your pool clean to prevent it from the growth of fungi and bacteria. Measure the pH of the water weekly and set the quantity of chlorine that the water needs. Algae and leaves that fall into the water can clog the filter of your pool, that's why I would suggest you to install your pool far from trees.  At the end of the season, after the final clearance, it is best to cover it until next summer. If you do not know how to do that, contact a company that deals with swimming pools maintenance.
