Backyard Pool

Looks like we are going with a kidney shaped pool in our new backyard.  It blends best with the surrounding landscaped yard.  We aren’t going with anything fancy.  We won’t be adding any waterfalls, or diving boards, etc…  I’m keeping things simple.

We will have a concrete pool surround.  Stamped concrete just costs WAY TOO MUCH. Fortunately, our concrete will be coloured and textured.  This is a budget friendly alternative.

I’ve been going through all these flyers about pools.  Who knew there was so much to consider!?!  Apparently, we need a timer for our pump. This will help save us money in the long wrong.  Pumps don’t need to run all day long.

We are also looking into a salt chlorine generator.  Whatever – I’ll leave the technical stuff to the Husband.  Not my area :)

We are getting a light for the pool for evening swimming.  We still have to look into a pool cover and vacuum.  I’m told it’s best to buy a remote vacuum.  That way you don’t have to do any of the work except plug it in.

So many things to consider.  Right now I’m still trying to decide on the colour / style of our pool liner.  I think I like the idea of a dark liner.  Something that makes the water look a deep blue.

Advice?  I can’t wait to share photos of our new yard once all the work is complete.

Here are a couple backyard looks I like.
