Having your own swimming pool in your home is a great pleasure. It adds to the comfort of living and raises the price of the home if the consideration of selling arises.
Swimming pool enclosures are a perfect way to enjoy the outdoor without annoying bugs, cold winds, leaves, debris, rain, snow or bright sun.
Having one built in your backyard or home will not only increase your outdoor enjoyment, but also the aesthetic value of your home, resort or hotel.
The pool enclosure will also help in keeping the temperature of the pool water moderate hence the cost of heating pool water is reduced.
and if you can buy a trampoline from a trampoline manufacturer ,and jump from a trampoline into the swimming pool , that will be a cool thing.
If you are into D.I.Y, this is one of the home improvement projects that you can implement on your own. There are many types of pool enclosure kits that you can buy online and assemble yourself.
The kits contain all the materials you need as well as the detailed instructions to help you with every step of the process.
Assembling the swimming pool enclosure kit will require nothing more than basic DIY skills which may include the following:
- Being able to accurately measure and align the kit components,
- Using an electric drill or bits and using a screw drive.
I guess almost everyone has these skills.
The tools that are required include the following:
- A tape measure,
- Carpenter pencil
- A ruler
- A saw (preferably electric)
- A power drill
- Post hole digger
- level screw drivers (electric preferred).
The materials required include the following

You should also have the ability and patience to carefully read and assimilate the simplified fitting instructions. You don’t have to be an experienced carpenter to do this.
If you can purchase and install a swimming pool enclosure kit on your own, i assure you that you will enjoy relaxing in the water when you know that you completed this job on your own.
This is the cheapest way of installing a pool enclosure kit because if you get a professional installation you will obviously pay for his/her services.
Steps 1. Planning
The first thing you have to do when building your own pool enclose is to ensure that you get the precise measurement of your pool.
Just because the pool is circular or triangular in shape, doesn’t mean you have to build an enclosure in this shape. A swimming pool of any shape will look great in a square or a rectangular shaped enclosure.
This will give you plenty of room to sit on the side or have a place to lay your towels.
You can then choose a design that matches your outside landscaping decor. Which you will later send to the manufacturing company who will tailor make the swimming pool enclosure kit according to that design and your measurements.
Step 2. purchasing
Ask yourself the following Questions?
How much am I willing to spend in this project?
Which companies offer the best quality swimming pool enclosure kits at affordable costs?
Does the product has a warranty?
So it is important that you compare pricing. It is difficult to say how much you will pay for a swimming pool kit. Cost may vary depending on the company, type of pool, shape and size of pool.
Of course the larger the size of your pool, the more money you are likely to spend on buying the pool enclosure kit.
After this, you can now place your order to the manufacturing company, which will custom make the swimming pool enclosure that suits your pool. The company will then ship the kit to you for at-home assembly.
A swimming pool enclosure kit is relatively simple to assemble. Instructions will be sent to you with the DIY kit to help you to complete the project.
The DIY pool enclosure kits that will be sent to you will therefore specifically made for your pool. It will come with a drawn picture of how it should look like after you are done with assembling.
Once you open the kit, read the instructions carefully. In case you will need further assistance, you can just call the company.
Step 3. Prepare the ground
You measure the exact areas where you want to install the poles as instructed in the manual. With the use of a marker, mark these spots on the ground. Use a hole-digger to dig the holes on the ground.
Step 4. Installing the poles in the ground
Place the pole in the holes in an upright position. Pour a mixture of concrete and water to fill up hole and make sure the pole is tightly placed.
Repeat this process in all the holes. For better results, allow the concrete to dry completely before you proceed. This will take a maximum around 2 to 3 days.
For a smoother finish, use a shovel to spread concrete evenly to smoothen the holes.
Step 5. Installing the screen wire and the enclosure
This is the final stage in the assembling or your pool enclosure kit.
With the poles completely fixed, you can now roll out the screen wire and fix it on the outer surface of the pole using metal screws.
To ensure that the screen is secured well, two screws are used on the top and another two on the bottom. While doing this, make sure that you leave an open area that will be used for entry into the pool.
After this, now install the screen that you want to use for the enclosure of your pool. Your pool enclosure is now ready for use.
Isn’t this simple? You can then test out your pool enclosure and you will be amazed at how your pool enclosure will keep the bugs, insects, dust, debris, leaves away.
It will also help in reducing water evaporation problems, reduction of water heating cost, protection from the bad weather and harmful UV rays.
Also it will give you the privacy you need in your backyard because the pool enclosure will act as a divider and prevent neighbours from looking at you as you swim in your pool with your family and friends. You will enjoy using your pool all year round for a very long time.
