Installing an in ground pool is a major construction project that will enhance your leisure time and your property. Pool experts agree that the success of a pool project rests not with the salesman, brochures, or style you choose, but with the pool construction company you hire. Skovish Brothers Pools & Spas Inc. prides itself in offering Northeastern Pennsylvania (NEPA) the best Swimming Pools and Hot Tubs.

Soil and Site Concerns
If you can get the approval for your pool, take the time to study possible locations because this project is permanent. Stake out layouts and live with each for a few days to see how they work.

Selecting a Pool Style
Vinyl-lined pools, known for their smooth, stain-resistant, usually come as a package. Design options may be limited, but they are typically less expensive than fiberglass and cement pools. Depending on the soil composition, once the excavation is complete, a wall system is constructed. Each needs a pump, filter, drains, returns, plastic piping, and chemical feeder.

Fiber optic lighting and special landscaping, decks and screen enclosures all add to the outdoor ambiance you can create around a pool. Prioritize and plan for enhancements that will make your in ground pool your own.
