Hi there. We have finally decided that we would like to install a pool in our back yard, now the thing is, I thought you just dug a big hole then stuck a pool in there, but it seems there are hundreds of options and budgets. Our budget is puny (up to $15000 max!) but then so is the space we have. We hope for a simple 6x3.5m pool but we are completely confused as to what we need to do next. Do we have to obtain a permit before we do anything? Also, do we go for fibreglass, out of ground put in ground, or just a big old out of ground and deck round it. We want it to look the part and dont want to spoil the landscape of our garden.
Also do the pool installers dig the hole and remove the soil or do we do that ourselves? Oh my gosh it just seems like such a huge job for a little pool, but I know come summer we will be really pleased wth the result if we manage to get one in!
Any recommendations or advice would be greatefully recieved.
Many thanks JC.
