Pools are normally segregated in above ground pool, in ground pool and specialty pools. The choice of pool depends on your budget, space, and preference. Usually, above ground pools are considered to be cheaper than the others and easier to handle. Above ground swimming pools can definitely make your yard, your own little paradise. The most common type of above ground pools are the very basic and traditional ones which you fill up with a garden hose and drain it before storing it away.

You are required to clean the pool to maintain a hygienic swimming environment. Almost always, these pools are made of aluminum, resin or steel. Although resin pools are quite expensive as compared to steel pools but their biggest advantage is that they don't rust. Your pool requires a vinyl liner to hold water. You may even go for patterned walls for your usually round or oval pool. These patterns might include exotic looking tile motifs, tropical reef background and many more creative ideas.

As mentioned before they are the most common, well the reason behind this is that they are the most economical. Apart from that, they are easy to move along with you as you they are not fixed structures. Although, retailers do offer services like delivery and installation but above ground pools are quite simple to assemble and dismantle. You can also use do it yourself tool kits. You don't need to worry if you have a small yard, as these pools can be of various shapes and sizes, so you may choose the one that suits you. However, your choice is limited to only those shapes and sizes which the manufacturer offers. If the entrance to your yard is quite restricted, then these might be a great choice, as they are delivered in smaller parts which can be taken to the pool site and assembled. Coming to the liner, although professional installer is recommended, yet you can do it yourself with just the right amount of care required.

Despite all these benefits, you can't really ignore the fact that the life span of above ground swimming pools is quite short as compared to the in ground ones, as the vinyl liners have to be replaced after every five years. Also, disguising these pools with the surroundings is quite tough and the only way to be able to do so is very careful planning and management of your patio, deck and pool site.

Having a classy, cleaned above ground pool with an exotic liner can give the best impression of your back yard. Many suppliers all across the world are offering such pools with installation services at competitive prices. Therefore, cooling off in hot summers is something you shouldn't trade-off for anything else.
