"Poseidon Pools offers great tips for the homeowner planning on installing an inground swimming pool"

Your new inground swimming pool will become the focal point of all backyard gatherings. It will be a place to gather with your family and friends, an area to entertain, an exercise area, and your personal oasis to cool off. A new inground swimming pool represents a major investment in your home. It also represents convenience, aesthetics, and easy backyard entertaining. Before considering the installation of a pool, there are a few things you need to consider to plan properly.


  • Taxes: Adding an inground pool to your property may raise your property taxes. Depending on your area, we may be able to provide information on what types of increases to expect. If however, we do not, please contact local tax authorities so you will know what to expect.
  • Insurance: A new inground pool may increase the amount you pay for your home owners insurance. When considering building a new pool, please contact your insurance agent to find out about what increases, if any, you may incur with the construction of a new pool.
  • Local Codes: The Poseidon Swimming Pool representative who meets with you will be knowledgeable about all local codes regarding installation of pools. If you prefer to do your research beforehand, please contact your local township authorities and consult with them about size, shape, and safety requirements.
  • Maintenance: We use modern swimming pool equipment in all of our installations. As new equipment becomes available and proves reliable, we will use it on our installs. Although the more modern equipment does simplify daily maintenance, weekly or monthly cleanings and closing your pool in the off season is necessary.
  • Financing: Poseidon Swimming Pools is the most affordable swimming pool contractor in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, and Maryland. Even though our prices are cheap, a new inground pool still represents a significant financial commitment. We are able to provide lending information or you may want to check with your mortgage company to see what the rate on a low fixed rate home equity loan would be.
  • Space: Your inground swimming pool will be a permanent structure in your backyard. Be sure that your yard is large enough to accommodate the swimming pool you desire while still leaving room for other activities you will engage in your backyard.
