Want an in ground swimming pool? It may be easier than you think!

It's not every day you decide to dig a hole in your back garden and install a swimming pool, but it may be easier than you think!

Understandably, most people's concept of a swimming pool is a fully tiled concrete pool at a huge cost. They would be right! An average cost of a concrete pool starts from £30,000.00 for 30' x 15' pool size and takes on average 8-10 weeks to build.

The idea behind this video is for you the end user to consider building an inground swimming pool (with a lifetime structural guarantee) The Kafko swimming pool aesthetically looks like a concrete pool but is far easier to install (within 10 days) and is under half the cost.

A Kafko swimming pools construction is ideally suited to the person who enjoys doing general DIY around the house. Even a keen DIY enthusiast has a limit to certain building skills. Therefore, viewing the video (we can send you on request, filmed on location in the U.K.), will enable you to ascertain what aspects of the Kafko swimming pool construction you can and cannot do. Any part of the construction that you feel requires expertise leaves you the option to either contact your local pool dealer or a general builder for help - the video will at least enable you see what the desired result should be when building a Kafko diy swimming pool..

One of the great advantages of installing a liner type swimming pool construction is that in approximately 7-10 years, the liner will have to be replaced. This is a very simple and straight forward procedure and at a present day costs, a replacement liner for a 30 x 15' pool would cost £1150 inc. VAT. Remember, the liner is the finished cosmetic look of the pool, so every 7-10 years it will look like a brand new installation!

Another point to bear in mind when replacing the liner in the future, is to consider changing the depth of your Kafko swimming pool. If you built the pool to the standard 4ft depth this would be the ideal opportunity to increase the depth by hand digging to a new depth of 5ft -the same depth liner is used whether it is 4 or 5ft therefore, the price will remain the same!

It is also possible to raise the swimming pool above ground level by as much as 18" using the soil to build a patio around it, finished with either a retaining wall or gradually sloping turf. This may be done to save on the cost of earth removal and the time and effort involved in excavation, especially when hand digging is involved.
