What Everyone Needs to Know – Above Ground Pools

Above Ground Pools are the best option for homeowners who want a swimming pool but aren’t ready for the more expensive choice of putting in an in-ground swimming pool. There are lots of other benefits to above ground pools, and reasons why smart consumers opt for Above Ground Pools when the summer heat is closing in!

Affordability is the obvious reason why price-conscious homeowners buy Above Ground Pools, because they are so much less expensive than in-ground pools. For homeowners not yet up for the long term commitment to an in-ground pool, or for those who are not in a home that they think they will live in for a long time, Above Ground Pools can make terrific sense. Above Ground Pools are considered temporary structures and you probably won’t have to get any kind of license or permit to install it. Most of these pools can usually be moved to your next home or a new location, and all it takes is a new liner to be quickly reinstalled at the new site.

Many parents with small children like Above Ground Pools because they need to be climbed into, and are not easily accessible to small children. For these young families, an in ground pool at ground level is hazardous and necessitates close supervision, pool covers, fences or gates for protection of their children and any neighbor children that could get into their backyard.

For house lots that are not completely level or have rough terrain, Above Ground Pools can be just the solution needed. It can be very difficult and expensive to install an in-ground pool in landscapes that are not level or that have rocky under surfaces. Above Ground Pools, on the other hand, can be set onto ground that has been flattened with a backhoe and you never have to worry about what is beneath the surface.

If summer is near and you’re daydreaming about withstanding the heat in a swimming pool, Above Ground Pools are the answer to your prayers. Installing an in-ground pool can take many months if you count the permitting process, looking for bids and picking a pool contractor, breaking ground and installing the pool. It could be snowing before you have a chance to swim in your pool! But with Above Ground Pools you can be in your pool with friends and family long before Labor Day rolls around!

As Above Ground Pools have become more popular, manufacturers have come up with new ideas and trends for pools and accessories that make them a great choice in comparison to in-ground pools. Pool sizes now range from a standard 8-foot diameter round pool to a jumbo 20 foot x 40 foot pool. You will also be able to talk to pool manufacturers who can transform your ‘dream pool ideas’ into a custom-designed pool that meets all of your specifications.

It’s always smart to shop around when looking for a life-changing purchase such as an Above Ground Pool. Look around and get recommendations for a local pool company with a good reputation. You’ll want to make sure that the company has great customer service, follow-up, and is easily access!
