Swimming Pool Construction Cost in Kenya

Swimming Pool Construction Cost in Kenya

For anyone wanting to own a swimming pool, the cost is the main factor to consider. On the other hand, the main determinant of the cost of a swimming pool is the size. At Watertech, we are experts in constructing swimming pools of any size and shape. Below we will share our swimming pool construction cost in Kenya to help you make an informed decision.

Considerations to make before building a swimming pool

There are a few considerations you need to make before building a swimming pool.

  1. Available space

Before you construct a swimming pool, you need to consider the available space. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Whether it is big enough?
  • Is the place convenient for a swimming pool?
  • Will it cause inconveniences like movement of people, animals and vehicles?
  • Will it be affected by pollution from drainage water, busted sewer lines, runoff water when it rains etc.?
  1. Underground or aboveground

Do you prefer an underground or aboveground pool? If you intend to have a temporary pool, an aboveground can be the more preferable option. However these type of pools might not be as durable as underground pools.

  • Permanent pool or temporary pool

As stated above, aboveground pools are more temporary than underground pools. However you can still have a temporary underground pool.

  1. For private use or public use

The other major consideration to make before constructing a swimming pool is who will use it? Will it be for your family and friends or will be for public use like in hotels, schools and other public establishments? This will determine the design and eventually the cost too.

  1. Availability of water

It’s very important that you have a good source of clean water. Water from a river might not be very helpful considering it can be contaminated. The river might also be a seasonal river that only runs during rainy seasons when it’s cold and not many people want to swim.

  1. Type of soil or topography of the area

The type of soil and topography of your area is another major consideration. In rocky places it makes it harder and more costly to dig. Also if the area is on a slope it might not be really helpful because when it rains dirty water will get in the pool. Also a very steep slope will make it harder to construct let alone people accessing it.
