Above-ground swimming pools may be the right choice for your backyard because they are far less expensive than in-ground pools — sometimes more than 75% cheaper!
Some families might see an above-ground pool as a perfect way to learn how to maintain a pool before making a bigger investment in an in-ground pool.
Inflatable and kid’s pools are going to be the smallest and least expensive and can usually be purchased for less than $100.
A ring swimming pool is made of heavy-duty vinyl with an inflatable ring around the top of the pool that floats as the pool is filled with water.
Metal framed swimming pools are durable and can usually be left up all year round. These pools can last for many years if they are well maintained.
A steel wall above-ground swimming pool is yet another type of framed pool. This is the most durable type of above-ground swimming pool. These pools do cost more than other types of above-ground pools but you can expect them last longer.
While some above-ground swimming pools will work with a pool heater it might be more practical to get a solar cover for your pool. A solar cover covers your pool and uses heat from the sun to heat the water. It also works to trap heat in your pool to keep the water warm overnight.
Whether you have a custom-built deck next to your swimming pool or not, you will need a pool ladder.
You will also want to invest in pool cleaning tools and chemicals. A pool cleaner will remove larger debris, such as leaves, from your pool that a filter cannot remove.
