Are you longing for lazy days spent by the pool? Dreaming of entertaining friends and family at home? If you are looking to create a backyard oasis, an above ground pool might be the answer. An above ground pool can be the perfect solution when an inground pool is not the right choice due to budget, space, or other limitations.
An Above Ground Pool Costs Less than an Inground Pool
An inground swimming pool is a considerable investment. These pools are designed to bring you years of fun in the sun, but many families may not want to make such a long-term commitment. Inground pools require excavation, concrete/ gunite and a significant amount of time and labor to build your pool.
An above ground swimming pool offers refreshing, cool water at a lower price point. Above ground pools come in a variety of shapes and sizes at a faction of the cost. If you are renting your home or do not plan to live in your current house long-term, an above ground pool can be a great option.
Quantum Resin Series and Saratoga pools offer exceptional quality at an affordable price. These reputable brands allow you to install your dream pool – one that will last for many years to come – at a price that makes sense for your family.
Round pools offer the absolute best bang for your buck. Typically, a round pool provides the largest swimming area at the best price.
A 18’ round above ground pool gives you the same swimming area as a 12’ X 24’ oval above ground pool, but the round pool may cost as much as $1,000 less. That’s because an oval pool needs some additional bracing and reinforcement that can drive up the cost.
An Above Ground Pool Takes Up Less Space
Most experts recommend 4 – 8 feet of deck around your inground pool. This can limit the size of your pool in modest backyards. Above ground pools take up less space. You’ll need room for a ladder and your equipment, but you don’t have to set aside additional space for a large deck. You can install a deck if you prefer, but you don’t need one to enjoy your pool if space is tight.
Round, oval, and rectangle pools maximize your space to play and swim. There is plenty of room to relax on a pool float or play volleyball.
Above Ground Pools are Quick & Easy To Install
Are you eager to make a splash quickly? An above ground pool will allow you to take a dip much sooner. If you have a flat spot that is cleared and ready to go, installation is usually pretty quick and simple. If you choose to bury your pool or add a large deck, installation will take longer, of course. But even still, above ground pools can be installed in much less time than inground pools.
Above Ground Pools are Simple to Maintain
All pools require regular maintenance, but we think you’ll find that above ground pools are easier to maintain. Whatever pool you choose, you’ll need to test the chlorine and pH daily and keep your pool free of debris.
When it comes to maintenance costs, above ground pools come out ahead. Generally speaking, above ground pool plumbing and water sanitation systems are simpler. That means there are fewer parts that may need to be replaced or repaired over the years. Above ground parts are typically less expensive than inground pool parts. Plus, above ground pools don’t require periodic resurfacing – a significant maintenance expense.
Above ground pools are easy to cover and winterize. These pools are the clear winners when it comes to cost-effective maintenance.
You can Move An Above Ground Pool
Some above ground pools can be moved. These pools are ideal for military families that move frequently or renters. These above ground pools can be easily disassembled and installed in your new location. This type of pool could also be a good option for grandparents, who want to have a pool while grandkids are young but then want to use the space for something else once the kids are a bit older.
You don’t have to wait until you are in your “dream” home to install a pool. You can always take the pool with you if you decide to move several years later. Above ground pools make it possible to take the investment you’ve made in your backyard swimming pool with you.
Above Ground Pools Can be Installed Semi-Buried
If you long to sunbathe next to your pool, above ground pools give you plenty of options. You can partially bury above ground pools to bring the surface of the water closer to ground level. Additionally, these types of pools can often be built into hills. If you choose to add a deck, your above ground pool will have the same look and functionally as an inground pool.
