Choosing the right size in ground pool for your backyard is one of the most significant decisions you will make in your pool-building journey. There are a lot of things to consider, making this choice all the more difficult. 

The size of your pool determines how many people can swim at once, what activities you can do in your pool, and more. When narrowing down your decision, it can be helpful to consult with professionals for advice.

It can be helpful to consider the following when choosing the right size in ground pool for your backyard:

Your Family Size

The first thing you should consider when determining in ground pool size is your family size. In most cases, your family will be the ones using your pool on a regular basis, so it is important to get a pool that keeps everyone comfortable and happy.

If you’re a family of four, you may only need a smaller pool for simple family games and for lounging. If you have a larger family – let’s say eight, for example – you will likely want to consider a pool that can accommodate larger games and activities. 

Desired Pool Activities

The next thing to consider is what your desired pool activities are. If you want a pool designed for floating and relaxing, a smaller pool may work perfectly for your needs. On the other hand, if you want a pool for family games or even swimming laps, you will want a larger pool in order to use it in the way you intended. 

How Often You Will be Hosting

Do you host your family and friends often? If so, odds are your inground pool will become a large part of the fun. Consider how many guests you will have over at once and how they will want to use your pool. 

Don’t be the party pooper, make sure your in ground pool is large enough for all of your guests to have a great time. 

Your Available Space

The size of your backyard will be a crucial determining factor for what size in ground pool you can add. In some cases, it may even be a limiting factor. Even if you have a massive backyard large enough for an Olympic-sized pool, you will want to evaluate your available space to accommodate things like a deck, grilling area, grassy play yard, and anything else you want to continue using your yard for. 

Even if you have a smaller backyard, though, with the right design you’d be surprised at just how big of a pool we could fit back there.

Your Budget

Finally, consider your budget when choosing the right size inground pool for your backyard. While your budget may be a limiting factor when it comes to pool size, it may also get you a larger pool than expected.

An in ground pool is an investment in both the happiness of your family and your home value. Spending money on a nice inground pool can greatly increase the market value of your home, meaning a good chunk of your pool budget will go right back into your home in the form of equity. Don’t be afraid to put money into your home for something that adds value directly.
