There are lots of questions that we received on what are the benefits when they convert their pool and or remove their swimming pool.
Well here are the most common benefits in converting your pool.
- Water Saving
Pools can waste thousands of litres of water per year in evaporation and general use alone! The cost of water in Queensland continues to skyrocket. Last year, household water prices rose over 17 percent; despite the fact consumption was lower. ABS stats indicate Queensland scored second highest in the country for both water consumption and average price paid.
- Power Savings
Most home owners are unaware of how much their pools are costing them a year to maintain and run. On average most pools cost over $650 a year in electricity! A standard pool pump on an average size pool will cost you anywhere between 20-30 cents per hr to run. For example if you ran your pool 6 hrs a day that's almost $1.80 per day x 365 days = $657 per yr on your electricity bill.
- Home Resale Value
With the cost of living always on the rise, people are looking for ways to save money and reduce their overheads while owning a property. To a potential buyer, a leaky old pool that is in need of some expensive renovation can be seen as a bargaining tool rather than an investment. A low maintenance, water wise backyard that is cost effective would be seen as a positive.
- Get Rid of Your Maintenance Costs
- Increase Your Home’s Value
- The pool has outlived its purpose
- Pool is preventing buyers from considering your home
- Reducing your personal liability
