Dear General; My family has been begging for a new inground fiberglass pool (and I want one too!), but our yard is pretty small and I’m worried we can’t fit one. How can I find out if a pool will fit in my yard and what it might look like, so we can decide on a pool and get in the swim?

Dear Wondering; Will an inground fiberglass pool fit in your backyard? The short answer is: probably! Fiberglass pools come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors. While your yard might not be large enough to accommodate a pool with features such as built-in tanning ledges, open swim lanes or beach entry, there are still awesome fiberglass pool designs that are as small as 19.5 feet long and 9.5 feet wide that can give you the relaxing oasis you’re dreaming of. The first step is to consult with a professional pool builder. They’ll send an estimator to your house to let you know what your options are and give you a quote so you can be one step closer to having the backyard swimming pool oasis of your dreams. Here’s how to get started:
The takeaway here is this: An inground fiberglass swimming pool in your backyard is most likely doable, regardless of size. But you’ll never know if you just keep wondering! It’s time to take the plunge and pick up the phone. It might seem like a time consuming project, but the years of having family and friends over to swim, the memories you can make with the kids, the entertaining, exercise and pure relaxation make it all worthwhile.
Where I am, it’s 93 degrees today with high humidity. Think I’ll grab a float and enjoy my pool.
Until next time…
