How Can I Afford a Pool? January 13, 2021

A backyard swimming pool is a wonderful addition that can enhance the beauty of your property and bring your family joy for years to come—but there’s no denying that building a pool is a major investment. If you’ve ever dreamed about having your own pool, you’ve probably wondered how building and maintaining one would work for your budget. While the cost of an inground pool can vary significantly depending on factors such as site conditions, design options, and added features, the good news is that there are several ways to help make a new pool more affordable.

Cost-saving design features

At Aqua Pool & Patio, we specialize in designing, building, and installing custom gunite pools. When compared to the other leading choices for inground pools—specifically, fiberglass and vinyl—gunite is the highest-quality and longest-lasting option by far. For example, fiberglass pools last for about 25 years on average, while vinyl pool liners must be replaced every six to twelve years. Gunite pools, on the other hand, are essentially permanent, designed to last for 100 years or more—even when faced with frigid winter temperatures and other harsh conditions of nature. As a result, choosing a gunite pool will help you save money in the long run by eliminating the concern that you will need to replace your pool or make significant repairs in the foreseeable future.

When you work with the experts at Aqua Pool to design your custom gunite pool, we will guide you through the process of choosing features that will deliver maximum value while staying within your budget. Opting for certain features, such as in-floor cleaning systems and variable speed pumps, can help you save time and money in the future. For instance, a self-cleaning pool will conserve chemicals by circulating them more efficiently and will remain in pristine condition at all times—thereby minimizing the costs and effort associated with pool maintenance. We also offer flexible pool maintenance plans to help you care for your pool, no matter your needs and budget.

Pool financing options

Unless you are planning to pay for the entire cost of building your new pool upfront, you will probably want to explore options for financing. At Aqua Pool, we are pleased to partner with Lyon Financial and Paramount Capital, two lenders that focus exclusively on swimming pool loans. Between today’s historically low interest rates and the solutions offered by these lenders, it is possible to build the pool of your dreams for little to no money down and reasonable monthly payments. For example, a $55,000 pool could be yours for as little as $400 per month! Other benefits of utilizing our in-store financing options include:

  • Loan approval within 24 hours or less
  • Manageable monthly payments tailored for your budget
  • Up to 100% financing
  • Low, fixed interest rates
  • Up to 6 months of deferred payments
