Why a Pool Enclosure Makes Sense

Building a Pool Enclosure

A swimming pool enclosure, unlike an automatic pool cover, allows you to utilize the pool while it is shielded from the weather. If you’ve been looking for a means to keep the pool and patio open while protecting it from the elements, this post is for you.

There are a lot of individuals who wonder if it’s possible to create an outdoor swimming pool first and then cover it up. To be honest, the answer to this question is straightforward. It’s conceivable, of course. In other cases, OpenAire has installed enclosures to pools that had been open for many years before the owners or management opted to enclose them.

That being said, starting the construction of the pool enclosure from the beginning will save you both time and money in the long run, especially if you wish to enclose the pool from the beginning. It’s a good idea to put up an enclosure while the pool is being built if you can afford it. After the pool has been created, it is far more expensive to erect the structure.

Building Now – Enclosing Later

For those who must create the pool, but must wait to enclose it, it is advisable to plan ahead and make some basic preparations for when the time comes to begin construction. The following are a few pointers to bear in mind:

To begin, figure out how big the building will be in advance. Afterwards, you can take the appropriate measurements and pour the foundations for the building at the same time as the pool deck is being laid. In order to install foundations after the fact, digging up the dirt will inevitably harm your pool.

Be careful to plan ahead for the enclosure’s mechanical systems and utilities, as well as for the necessary water and energy supplies. Because the mechanical system of an indoor pool is not the same as that of an outdoor one, it is critical to plan ahead in order to keep upgrade expenses to a minimum.

Make sure the site is accessible at all times. Trucks, cranes, and other machinery will need to reach the site when you want to install a post-construction structure. They’ll be driving over pipes, patios, and landscaping, which might lead to problems if they’re not planned for ahead of time.

It’s feasible to create a pool first and then enclose it later, although we don’t encourage it. But because of the added time and expense of installation, as well as the difficulty of gaining access to the site, and the risk of damage, it is vital to prepare ahead wherever feasible.
