Three Reasons an Above Ground Pool May be Right for You

When you want a pool in the yard but don’t have the money or the space to build an in-ground pool, consider getting one that is above ground. There are a few different sizes to choose from, and you can still have the same enjoyment that you would have with one that is in the ground. The best thing about an above ground pool is that you can take it with you if you plan on moving from the home.

Save The Money
If you have priced pools, then you have probably noticed that an above ground pool is much less expensive than one that is installed in the ground. If you wait until the end of the summer seasons, you can get a pool at a fraction of the price of a new one as many of them are on clearance. Stores usually don’t want to have to place swimming pools in storage until the next year because they can take a lot of space that can be used for other items. Most stores will often discount pools as low as they possibly can so that they can get them out the door. It’s also less expensive to care for an above ground pool. You still have to use the chemicals, but you don’t have to perform as much maintenance for the liner and the pump as you would with a pool in the ground.

Ease Of Setting Up
An above ground pool is much easier to place in the yard than one that is installed in the ground. When you get an in-ground pool, you have to get a company to clear away a space in the yard, dig a hole for the pool to be placed, add the concrete, lining and other components. The only thing that you have to do with an above ground pool is take it out of the box, fill it with water, set up the pump and make sure the chemicals are adjusted. This can save a lot of time when you want to have something for the family to enjoy.

If you are thinking about moving at any time in the future, you can easily dismantle the pool and take it with you to your new home. You can also take the pool down during the winter if you don’t want to leave it up to possibly get damaged by snow and ice. Make sure you cover the pool and protect it from getting torn before storing so that there are no repairs to be made the following year.
