The cost of pools in Winnipeg and Manitoba can vary by a number of different factors. This page will give you some insight into those factors, help you choose the right pool for your yard, and outline some things to look for in your new backyard getaway builder.
Above Ground pools are great for families looking to have a cost effective place to cool down on a hot summers day. They should be made from resin/plastic components to help reduce corrosion. (Pool walls are generally the only metal component to help maintain pool structure) An Above Ground pool may also be the perfect choice when wanting to build against and existing deck and minimize disruption to your backyard during the installation process. (Only 3 feet of entrance into your backyard is needed, all work is usually performed by wheel barrow) The pool water depth for an Above Ground pool is 45-48″ depending on wall height. The average lifespan of a Above Ground pool in Winnipeg is typically 15-20 years.
Full resin components, Products that carry manufacturer warranty, Installation on a solid base and not patio stones or gravel (This method typically sees a lot of ground movement with Manitoba’s extreme Winter temperatures), Reliable pool builder with lots of experience.
Inground Pools are great for families looking to turn their yard into a permanent backyard getaway. Family time is precious and with busy schedules and extra curricular activities, the cottage at the lake experience is sometimes not feasible. More and more families each year have decided to turn that getaway experience into a reality by just walking just outside their back door. When building your Inground Pool the sky is the limit in terms of functionality, options, and design. These pools require anywhere from 1 week to a 1 month to complete depending on the complexity of the project. An Inground Pools average lifespan in Winnipeg is 50+ years, with a liner change every 15-20 years.
Size, shape and budget are important factors to consider when talking with a pool building company. Once you determine the above factors its best to discuss how the pool will be built, with what type of materials, and the warranties offered by the builder (Nothing would be worse than purchasing a Inground Pool that is cheaper than other quotes you received only to find out the builder is skimping on the most important parts of the build!), Look for a pool builder you feel comfortable with and is honest with you.
