If you plan on installing a swimming pool in your backyard here in Perth, know that there are several factors that can affect its longevity and installation cost. Learning about them can help ensure that your pool lasts for as long you need it. Chief among these factors is the condition of the soil in which your pool will be installed.
Water Pooling and Soil Condition
Underground water pooling has a direct effect on the stability of your pool. Essentially, a pool is comparable to a huge container that can be displaced if a substantial amount of water accumulates beneath it. This usually occurs when the pool is drained and there is no counterweight from the underground water. Soil that is expansive i.e. shrinks or swells dramatically depending on moisture levels, can place undue pressure on swimming pool walls.
