Life is full of surprises, so it’s always good to be well informed. For this reason, we have prepared practical tips for you. These mainly concern the planning, construction and maintenance of a pool in the backyard. So let’s summarize the most important things about garden pools.
Enjoy pure relaxation at the garden pool.
Plan and determine the location, shape and size of a garden pool
We do not rule out the possibility that you can build your own pool in the garden yourself. On the Internet you can find detailed information with precise instructions on how to do this. You can also buy a prefab pool. Both options depend mainly on your will and the available budget. In advance, you need to determine the location, shape and size of your backyard pool depending on the free space in your backyard. Our advice is: choose an area in your garden that is as level as possible. If it faces south then you will have a lot of sun there all day long. This means that the pool water stays warm for a long time, so you can also swim in the evening.
Some people can even afford an infinity pool.
The location of the garden pool really needs to be chosen strategically. Not very close to the bridle and not directly in the middle of the garden would be ideal. In addition, it is not desirable that there are tall trees in the immediate vicinity. In wind and rain, the leaves fall directly into the water and then have to be fished off. It is best to plan a pool cover in advance.
The rectangular shape of the outdoor pool is the most popular.
You can also determine the shape and depth of the garden pool individually. You decide round or square, depending on the available space. Most garden owners prefer a depth of 1.50 to 1.60 m. Many also want a smaller paddling pool especially for the children. Then the recommended depth is 0.40 to 0.50 m. In such a garden pool for children, swimming is absolutely safe for the little ones, and their bathing fun – great!
Children always enjoy a few hours of swimming.

– Proper care of the garden pool is the be-all and end-all of your hygiene
It is advantageous in all respects if you use tap water to fill the garden pool. It is also advisable to regularly check the water quality and the pH value in the pool. A pH value that is too low makes the fittings corrode easily. On the contrary, if the pH of the pool water is too high, it can cause skin and eye irritation. Therefore, be forewarned and take all necessary measures regarding the maintenance and care of the garden pool. If the pool steps become slippery, they must be cleaned with a hand brush. Leaves and other floating dirt must be removed regularly, as these could damage the technical system and lead to serious problems. At the end of the swimming season, it is necessary to prepare the pool for the winter and protect it from frost damage. If you can’t do this on your own or don’t have the time, hire a professional.
Cleanliness and hygiene are very important here.
