5 Reasons to Choose an Above Ground Pool

When starting to shop for a pool for your backyard space, one of the first questions to answer is whether to choose an in-ground or above-ground pool. While both options have their pros and cons, it can be difficult to determine which option is the right choice for your family’s outdoor entertainment. If you’ve been wondering which pool option is right for your family, Discount Pools Direct wants to let you know about the 5 advantages of choosing an above-ground pool for your outdoor space.

1. Fast Installation & Start-Up

The benefits of an above-ground pool start with the installation process. The area where the pool will be installed needs less preparation than the time-consuming process of digging and other structural requirements of an in-ground pool structure. The installation process for above-ground pools usually takes a matter of days rather than the weeks or months that may be required for an in-ground pool.

2. Cost-Effective

There are several ways in which an above-ground pool serves to be cost-effective for customers. First, the start-up costs are lower as the structure of an above-ground pool is often less costly than an in-ground pool. As they are considered a semi-permanent structure, above-ground pools should not increase your property taxes. These pools are also typically less of a strain on your utility bills like electricity and water as they require less power and water than their in-ground counterparts.

3. Simplified Maintenance

Due to their size, above-ground pools typically need fewer chemicals and less time to maintain. It will likely take less time to clean than most in-ground pools as well.

4. Smaller Outdoor Footprint

Have a smaller outdoor space? This could limit your options with an in-ground pool; however, above-ground pools can often be accommodated by a smaller area.

5. Versatility

Are you planning to sell your home in the future? An above-ground pool is a temporary installation, which means that when you are ready to move, the pool can be disassembled and removed from the property. As a pool is sometimes a safety concern for prospective buyers, the ability to remove an above-ground pool, if necessary, removes a barrier to easily selling your current home while also allowing your family to enjoy the benefits of a pool while you live there. The other benefit of being able to disassemble and reassemble your pool is that you can take your above-ground pool with you when you move and continue enjoying your investment.

Additionally, if you are ever unable or unwilling to continue caring for a pool, disassembling an above-ground pool is a much simpler option than the expensive, time-consuming process of filling in an in-ground pool.
