As the weather in Arizona gets warmer and warmer, your swimming pool is certain to start being used more and more. If you don’t have a swimming pool, you may even be considering investing in one — especially since you’re more than likely spending a lot of extra time at home these days. 

Swimming pools can be a costly investment, so are they worth the money? Luckily for residents of Arizona, warm weather comes with the territory. But, will your swimming pool get used enough to cover the cost of building it and/or cleaning, maintaining, and servicing it?

Building a Swimming Pool

If you’ve decided that it’s time to install a swimming pool in your Goodyear backyard, there are a few things to consider so that you can save as much money as possible in your new investment:

  1. Sizing

You don’t need a huge pool in order to enjoy it. Especially if it’s your children that will be spending the most time in the pool. It goes without saying that the larger your pool is, the more expensive it will be. Take your time to figure out the best size for your family, and remember that a smaller, 20-30 foot pool can still provide plenty of afternoon entertainment.

  1. Start Simple

The easiest way to save some money on your initial investment is to start simple. By installing a basic swimming pool, you can start to enjoy its benefits right away, and add features and additions as time goes on. You can always add decorative lights, slides, water features, and pool heaters later.

  1. Do Your Research

When you’re hiring a contractor to install your swimming pool in Arizona, be sure to get quotes from multiple contractors. Review their quality of work, references, insurance, and warranty to ensure that you are getting the best service and workmanship for your dollar. It might take a little extra time, but you could be saving a ton of money getting that one last quote from another contractor.

Cleaning and Maintaining Your Swimming Pool

Maybe you have your brand new swimming pool now, or maybe you’ve had one for years and you’re tired of spending too much money on repairs. When you keep your swimming pool properly maintained, you can save money on costly repairs and damages that may have occurred because issues were neglected.

At Universal Pool Service, we provide monthly cleaning and maintenance services at affordable prices so that your swimming pool will keep functioning properly — extending it’s life and making it more enjoyable for everyone. 

  1. Skim and Scrub

Skimming and giving the walls and steps of your swimming pool a good scrub can prevent unnecessary build-up that can be bad for your pool’s long-term health. These are easy-to-do daily tasks that can be completed in between your monthly maintenance with Universal Pool Service. By keeping the surface and sides of your pool as clean as possible, there is a smaller possibility of having to spend extra money on more extensive cleaning services or repairs.

  1. Check Your Filters

Checking your filters on a regular basis is a great way to make sure that the water in your swimming pool stays clean and healthy. Universal Pool Service checks your filters with each monthly cleaning service, however, checking them regularly in-between visits helps to ensure that they stay clear of debris and other contaminants.

  1. Avoid Glass By The Pool

Everyone loves to enjoy a tasty beverage or cocktail by the pool’s edge, but it’s important to remember that if an accident happens and your glass shatters near the water, you may have to do some serious vacuuming or even completely drain and refill the pool. This can be a costly and time-consuming task that can easily be avoided. Stick to plastic if you insist on having a drink with your feet in the pool, or use regular glasses at a further distance.
