It was very cool to see how accurate the pool designer was able to mimic our backyard with the pool right in place! We were able to see a video that was 3D also, where you can move around the mouse to look around, so cool! This is what was so helpful when we were planning our pool design, it really gave us a sense of scale, and aided in the layout & placement details.
Online source for swimming pool designs – wow
We were not able to try the VR headset, which they said it could do, but it was really more than enough to have both images and videos in 360 degrees. I highly suggest you make sure your pool designer is using this technology when creating your pool.
This all came from a very creative online swimming pool design service that we used to get a pool design we could use to compare local pool builders prices. Initially we had thought we would build the pool ourselves but realized we just could not reasonably make it happen with our family, maybe for other people this is no problem just not for us.
Trouble with finding good pool companies
We have not started building our pool yet, mainly because we could not determine which way we wanted to do it. I suppose that if we started ourselves we could have hired someone to finish if we could not but, sparing the family details we know we will be hiring. So, we have our design, and we know exactly how much this pool will cost to build, so now we are taking bids from local pool builders.
Our main problem are the general directories do not seem to have accurate listings, or when a business closes nobody removes the listing, we made lots of calls that went nowhere with these types of sites. Instead of going to those generic online directory websites, we found better quality pool contractors from these pool company directory websites. It seems the guys on there are more professional and have mostly been quality verified.
We have a few more meeting lined up with pool contractors, I will make another update when we decide who to go with.
