Above Ground Swimming Pool

by Pool Builders on 03-23-2010 in Articles

When considering buying a swimming pool, it's easy to think of the large, traditional pool that digs a good twelve feet into your backyard lawn. However, these old styled pools are always expensive, and can only be designed according to your home's geographic layout. These pools are quickly making way for newer, more practical above-ground pools. Swimming pools that sit atop ground are far more practical for people looking for a nice swimming pool, quick installation, and a variety of styles and sizes.

Above-ground swimming pools come in virtually infinite proportions and layouts. They can be designed and purchased in any shape and size. Whether you want to to practice olympic diving or teach your children to swim, vendors will deliver pools of any depth and length. These pools are also available in several colors and aesthetic designs, and can even be customized to match your home and garden's theme. Designs range from tropical to Roman, and even Greek architecture.

Above ground swimming pools are thought to be cheaply made with shoddy construction. This isn't the case at all. These pools are constructed with a polypropylene-woven laminate, which will not break against intense water pressure. They are supported by resin or steel frames. Resin is impeccable to corrosion and rust, and will remain strong with use.

Steel is incredibly reliable, and is galvanized-coated, to offer rust free construction. Additionally, above ground pools are a good investment for homeowners. Because atop ground pools are smaller, they are easy to fit into yards or enclosures of any kinds, without putting up a lot of money for installment. You can take your pool with you if you move, which, sadly, you cannot do with an in ground pool.

Atop ground pools are the safest on the market. They are the ideal pool if you're raising a baby or toddler, or have small pets that could be in danger of drowning. Babies cannot crawl or fall into the pool because it is raised so high above the ground. This takes away any anxiety that comes with taking your young ones to the beach or the YMCA, because the safest swimming place will be conveniently located at home.

Above the ground swimming pools will also save money in the long run. The price of an average-sized atop ground pool is between $700-$900, while all in-ground pools go into the several thousands. Unlike in ground pools, they require little to no maintenance, and only around the seasons you intend to use it. With the money you save from hiring a hefty, young pool boy, you can plan your parties and barbeques, and you can enjoy your pool with your friends and family, knowing you've made the best investment possible on a swimming pool.
