How many gallons in a swimming pool? It’s just one of the frequently asked swimming pool questions that we will be answering today!
A: The number of gallons in a swimming pool depends on the pool itself! If, for example, you were to ask how many gallons in an Olympic swimming pool, the answer would be 660,000! But if you wanted to know how many gallons in a 12×24 foot swimming pool with an average depth of 5 feet, the answer would be 10,800!
A: There is no specific month or date that you should open your pool! The general rule of thumb, however, is that you should open your pool when outdoor temperatures are consistently above 70 degrees during the daytime.
A: It is recommended that you shock your pool after you open it and after any get togethers or parties where many people have used the pool because this can throw off the natural balance in the pool.
A: The cost of an in-ground pool depends on the size of your pool, the options you choose, and any additional add-ons like a hot tub! Prices also vary drastically based on how much experience an installer has, where you live in the U.S., the time of year, etc.
In short, every pool installation job has a unique price point that is determined by a number of factors.
A: A lot of people search online for “how to build a cheap swimming pool” and quite honestly, our answer to this query is DON’T!
The idea of spending less money upfront is certainly more appealing, but it also poses a number of problems. For example, when you install a cheap pool, you are getting sub-quality supplies that are not going to withstand the test of time. In other words – it won’t be long until your new pool starts leaking, cracking, or otherwise falling apart!
Something else to consider if you are thinking about a cheap pool, is that while a professionally installed pool can add to the value of your home, a cheap pool that is poorly installed can actually deter people from buying your home and detract from the price of your home!
A: This question isn’t about having your own pool, but it’s about whether public pools will be open this summer and the answer is that we don’t know! While some pools are open, many still remain closed and policies on opening the pool vary from institution to institution.
The best way to find out if a pool local to you is open is to call them in advance and ask!
A: The cost to fill your pool varies depending on the cost of water where you live.
It is also worth noting that depending on where you live, you may not be able to fill your new pool during certain times of the year if you are experiencing a drought.
A: Like we mentioned above, the cost to fill a pool with water really depends on where you live. Your cost also depends on how large and how deep your pool is.
A: It is best to check the chemical levels in your pool at least two to three times a week, this may seem excessive, but it ensures that you keep your pool water balanced and catches any imbalance before it gets completely out of hand.
Failing to regularly check the quality of your pool water can allow algae to take hold and before you know it, your pool water is swamp green and you have a real struggle on your hands!
