It is finally that time of year again, when many of us are busy preparing for the nice weather and planning for fun and exciting outdoor projects!
For some, this may include the installation of a new pool or the opening of an existing one. There has also been a recent trend in the construction of pool houses. Whatever you label them - pool house, cabana, gazebo - these outdoor structures are a great addition to any backyard pool!
Despite their popularity, the planning and construction of a pool house is no small feat. It requires significant planning and technical knowledge, with which the professional and trusted plumbers at Kempenfelt Plumbing and Backflow Services can assist.
The functionality of pool houses can vary significantly - from a modest structure used to store pumps, chemicals and other pool accessories to a full-fledged entertainment space with an outdoor kitchen and bathroom with shower. The first question you will want to consider is how you intend to use the pool house; we recommend making a list of the functions you would like it to serve as an initial step in the planning process. There is additional consideration and knowledge required in terms of compliance with local building zones and the need for permits, with which the knowledgeable Kempenfelt staff are happy to assist.
We are able to support the plumbing planning and design for any custom pool house or outdoor structure to suit your individual needs! This can range from the installation of a toilet, shower, bar area to a fully functional outdoor kitchen. You can rely on our trusted staff at Kempenfelt Plumbing and Backflow Services to efficiently meet all your plumbing needs to ensure your outdoor project is complete for your enjoyment all summer long!
