A DIY Or Professional Advice: Swimming Pool Edition

The DIY trend has been all over the internet for quite some time now and it is no surprise that the trend has caught onto this category as well. Whilst you hear a lot about DIY dye jobs and DIY garden décor, you may not want to stretch the fad too far and build your own pool. Sure, smaller tasks can be done and there’s nothing to it. Building a pool, however, has been described as an elephant of a task, and understandably so. Let’s discuss the DIY vs. Professional debate further.

DIY

 “Do It Yourself”, a phrase that has been printed on a plethora of play dough and Barbie merchandises is one that has taken the media by storm. A great option for people who cannot always seem to get professional help, DIY helps you develop skills on your own as an individual. Does this apply to architecture as well?

Pool Designing: The Breakdown

Assuming that you’ve decided to design a pool, there are a couple of things that will not cross your mind straight off the bat. Sure, you thought about the depth, and maybe even the material. If your first step was to record measurements, you’re already doing it wrong.

It is no doubt that a swimming pool design Melbourne would be well equipped with knowledge and details about the construction of the water body, and may ask different questions though. Such as whether you own a license to modify the property that you own? Or one that is on rent?

The math required behind scaling and colour scheme is not one that is imaginary or made up. After all, you want your pool to look like the way you’ve envisioned it, and why shouldn’t it? Only problem is, do you have the tools to execute the drawing plan you’ve had in mind?

Now this is in no means throwing shade to all those self-sufficient folks out there. Whilst hard work will always pay off, going on the wrong trajectory can lead to little success.

Professionals in all sorts of fields, including pool construction & installation Melbourne, see DIY’s like a person looks at someone cutting lines. With an eye-roll. There are enough horror videos online where a keratin treatment “goes wrong” and it does so because a person tried to do it on their own. Imagining this task being multiplied in complexity and thought makes a DIY pool idea all the scarier.  Now, you wouldn’t think this as absurd when talking about simpler tasks, but building a pool is not one of them.

The Verdict

What’s understandable is the need to perform some DIY tasks; however, a pool is not one of them. In whatever sense you choose, constructing a pool will cost you a good buck. A better bet would be investing a bit more into a professional team than risking it with a DIY. Let a professional guide you into making a better decision before getting your hands dirty and throwing some bucks away!
