With summer rolling in, it's time to put thought into your swimming pool. If you don't have one, you have several options. You can head off to the store and buy one that you blow up or set up and it holds anywhere from 5 to 8 people. Or, you can take bigger steps.

Out of ground swimming pools can be rather versatile. I've seen them set up complete with decks that give the feel of the in ground swimming pool. It's interesting to see how creative people can get on a tight budget.

But, in ground swimming pools really shouldn't be all that threatening. If you plan right, you can have an in ground swimming pool installed on your property for not much more than $1,000. Yes, that's right! It really depends on everything you want out of a pool. But, you can do it for just a little over $1,000.

What does that $1,000 include? That's the removal of dirt by a trained professional, the filter system and the in ground pool liner. Now, that's the basic in ground pool. So, for not much more than that, you can literally have any kind of pool you want that will fit your budget. It's just that most people think it's more difficult than what it actually is.

Pool installation experts would have you believe that you need them for their specialty. They will try to sell you everything from a concrete in ground pool that costs an arm and a leg to a fiberglass pool that is far less expensive. But, they will also hire their own crews and charge you great amounts of money because you'll expect it from the excavating they do to your land to the wiring for lighting and the filtering system. You will look at all the work that they put into your pool and actually expect a huge bill.

What if you slowed down and thought about it for a second? To get a hole dug in your yard that fits the specifications of your pool, you can pay one person a few hundred dollars and you can ask that person to make sure you have all the proper permits. This is isolating the work you need done and actually figuring out what exactly goes into it. You can also hire an electrician and get a better deal than a "Pool Installation Expert" who is going to find the electrician and overcharge you for all the work.

Now, you're starting to think about it aren't you? What would be so hard about doing it yourself? Sit down and design your pool. Visit a pool supplies store and look for everything you need. You'll find that things are much cheaper than you ever imagined. Now, all you need to know is how to install the pool by yourself.

There are instructions all over the net that give you step by step guides to out of ground swimming pools. But, there are also a few you can find that actually give you the ins and outs of in ground swimming pools as well. It all depends on what you want to do and how bad you want to do it. Then, you'll find the way!
