It’s the end of summer, and after suffering in the heat and sun, many people are planning to build a swimming pool to cool off in the summer months. But to make a success of this project, it’s essential to prepare accordingly. Here are 5 tips to help you build your own shell pool.

1) Call in a professional

For the installation of a shell pool, we strongly advise you to call on the services of a qualified and competent professional. He or she will draw up a quotation, sometimes free of charge, to estimate the price of your shell pool, the cost of which may vary according to certain parameters.

2) Comply with current regulations

There are specific regulations governing the construction of swimming pools. Before building a swimming pool, we recommend that you take the necessary administrative steps. It’s important to know that even for a shell pool of more than 10 m2, a declaration of works is compulsory. For pools with a water surface area of over 100 m2, planning permission is required.
