Swimming Pool Accessories For Aboveground Pools  

by Pool Builders on 11-08-2010 in Articles

Above-ground pools are the most popular types of pools for home-owners, almost certainly for reasons of space and price. Above-ground swimming pools can still be quite substantial, it only depends whether you buy a kit or not and which type of kit you do purchase.

The best above ground kits are manufactured from a drawing by a skilled carpenter and are surrounded by decking. Other types are like strong plastic bags suspended within a metal frame or substantial fibreglass pools supported on all sides by a wall.

However, whichever sort of garden pool you have, you will know that they are costly to maintain, so I dare say that you would like to get each ounce of pleasure out of it that you can. One of the best ways of encouraging people to use the pool more often is to stock it with toys and accessories. The young and old alike enjoy using aquatic or poolside toys

The best news is that there are lots of pool toys that do not cost that much, but there are also those that are expensive as well. The inexpensive pool toys include things such as beach balls, rubber rings, lidos, volley ball nets, water polo nets, flippers, masks, snorkels and basket ball hoops; while the expensive ones are items like water slides, water spas and diving boards.

Other items that make life in the pool more enjoyable are various kinds of floating furniture. You can get floating loungers, floating seats and floating tables. Some makes of these objects of floating furniture are robust enough to double as poolside furniture, but beware because they are not all strong enough to provide support on land.

Other pool side accessories that are absolutely necessary are safety equipment such as life-rings, a waterproof torch and a rope. A pool cover comes in useful to prevent leaves falling in and for over-wintering your apparatus. You will also require at least one ladder to get up to the pool and one to get out of the water. Although these are normally supplied with the pool, you might want another set.

As I stated above, the best above ground pools are surrounded by a deck. This deck gives the pool more support if it is a kit or it allows you to make use of each inch of space that you can allot to your pool, if you get a carpenter in to make you a pool and deck.

You can have it installed into a sunny or shady corner of your garden as a feature to be used as and when you want to use it, or you could make it more prominent for use each day. Even if it is a little too chilly or late to use the pool, it is refreshing and revitalising to sit on the deck at the poolside, read a book and sip a favourite drink.
