Choosing a local pool builder is an important part of the pool installation process. However, there are a number of questions you will need to ask yourself before you engage their services and pay your deposit. One of the most important questions is – what is a good size swimming pool for my family? To help you figure out how big your pool should be, we’ve put together this article.

How To Choose The Right Swimming Pool Size

The size of your pool will ultimately depend on the size of your yard. After considering yard size and what swimming pool shapes & sizes are practical, you’ll need to think about its intended purpose. For example:

  • Do you have a large family or are there just a few of you?
  • Do you have young children?
  • Will you be adding to your family?
  • Will the pool be used for swimming laps or other forms of exercise?
  • Are you planning on entertaining around the pool?

Answering these questions will help you decide on the depth of your pool, the shape of your new pool and what kind of pool surrounds you will need.

We hope we’ve shown that when it comes to a new pool, usability is the most important factor to consider. You may have dreams of a grand infinity pool, but if you have young children who need a shallow end and something to hold onto, it may not be practical. Have a good think about how your pool will be used and by whom, then talk to your local Sydney & Wollongong pool builders Riviera Pools about the next step. We’re always excited to discuss new swimming pool projects and help transform your yard into an attractive and functional asset.
