You are probably like most people who forget about the pool once the pool cover is on for the winter. This is something that could cost you in the end. You need to also maintain and pay attention to your pool in the winter months as well. Proper maintenance can help prevent a disaster, such as your pool having a blow-out, broken rails, or some other type of issue that will require a repair.
One feature that many people incorporate into their custom pool designs is a sun shelf. This term describes a large, flat space at one end of the pool that sits just under the surface of the water. People use their sun shelves in a number of ways, including to slowly get accustomed to the water upon entering, to sit on the shelf in chairs to enjoy the sun, and more. If you've decided that you'd like this feature to be a part of your custom pool, there are many considerations that you'll need to discuss with your pool builder.
Fencing is one of the most important details that pertains to pool ownership. A fence will protect your loved ones from falling into the pool and prevent people from taking advantage of you and using your water feature when you are not at home. The type of pool fence that you choose can be reflective of your style or the style of your home, but it should also contain the level of privacy that you prefer and require the amount of maintenance steps that you are willing to fulfill.
