Having a pool in your home is becoming one of those must do's today. They let you enjoy swimming in your own private space and add some style and class to the home. The main debate when you have decided to get a pool will be whether to choose an above ground swimming pool or to go for the other option of the traditional swimming pool. Weigh the following pros and cons and then decide.

Cost is one of the leading factors in this decision and an above ground-pool is five times cheaper than an in ground swimming pool. An in ground swimming pool will come at an average price tag of $25,000.

The above ground pool has the given advantage of not requiring too much space for installation. Even if you own just a small terrace, you can still enjoy owning a pool.

Above ground-pools are made available in different shapes, sizes and even materials. If you want to add a personal touch to your swimming pool then you can use accessories like walls and liners to customize it.

When it comes to the ease of assembly or installation, the above ground-pool takes the crown. One can do it themselves or can hire some professionals for cheap to do it. The traditional in ground swimming pool is just the opposite.

One of the biggest advantages that comes from an above ground-pool is that you can move it from place to place anytime you need to. It is portable so for instance if you are planning on moving to a new house you do not have to worry about leaving it behind.

The in ground-pool is extremely durable. The above ground pool is easily affected by extreme weather and chemicals and will not last more than 5 years.

Take a good look at your available space, your budget and whether or not you want to have the swimming pool in the same place and for a long time. Only then can you decide whether to go with the above ground pool or the in ground-pool.
