What You Should Look For In An Above Ground Pool Kit  

by Pool Builders on 04-10-2011 in Articles

Having an above ground pool is a great idea for people who don't have a large yard, or don't want the inconvenience and cost of putting in a permanent pool structure. One of the biggest differences of these swimming pools is that when you are done for the season, you simply empty the pool and put it away for the Winter, whether in the garage or shed. They are far more cost effective, require much less maintenance, and because they are above ground, are much safer when you have smaller children in your home.

The cost for these above ground pool kits are much less expensive overall. The swimming pools themselves can run anywhere from under $100 to well under $1,000, depending on the size, and cost pennies on the dollar for the cleaning supplies. If you get a complete kit, with the ladder, the filtration pumping system, and even the pool cover, you may spend a little more, but overall it is much cheaper than buying these separately, around two to five hundred dollars.

Because you can take down your above ground pools at the end of the season, your swimming pool is going to last a long time, through many years of use. Most swimming pools of this kind, if treated properly, are going to last at least five years of Summer time fun. If you are looking to buy one of these pools, here are a few tips that will come in handy.

The first big consideration when buying an above ground swimming pool kit is size. This is important because the size of swimming pools is going to be what generally costs the most. Many average pools are 10-12 feet in diameter, and about 30" high. This is something you really need to think about before buying, considering the size of your yard, as well as the needs of your family. While your kids may be smaller now, they grow up fast, and may also invite their friends over too. It is only a couple of hundred dollars more to get the larger size, 15' in diameter and 36" high, so it may be better to buy the larger size in the beginning instead of having to upgrade in a few years.

When buying your above ground pool kit, there are many choices in the style of pool. You have some that have external frames and have a more rigid pool design, but if you are looking for a pool that you can just layout and start filling with water, there is the Easy Set swimming pools. These pools are just the round pool made from a high quality durable plastic PVC. You put the pool where you want it. Fill up the ring with air and start filling it. You will need a screw driver to attach the ladder, and the pump filtration system, but that's about it. You don't even need any support for the walls because the pool and water act as its own tension. When you are done for the year, you just open the drain valve, deflate the top ring and wait for it to dry before storing.

When you are looking for you above ground pool kit [http://www.myeasysetpools.com], make sure you shop around carefully. You are going to want the complete swimming pools package, pool, filtration pump system, ladder, and cover. Each website is a little different, some may just offer the pool and pump, others may also include a cover and ladder in on convenient price.
