Florida summers are hot! So what better way to beat the heat than to go swimming in your new above ground pool? When you want a convenient, affordable, and low maintenance option to help you cool off, an above ground pool is a perfect choice.
Before purchasing an above ground pool, there are some factors to consider. First, measure the area where you want to install your pool. Don’t forget to give yourself enough space around the perimeter of the pool for things like the pump, filter, ladder, or decking. If you’re trying to decide between a round and an oval pool, measuring is also helpful for determining whether your yard space can accommodate either option.
While there are some inexpensive above ground pools on the market, they are not as durable as higher quality pools, and are generally meant to be used during summer and then stored over winter. Permanent above ground pools made of resin, steel, or aluminum can last up to 30 years depending on the quality and how you take care of it.
Next, you’ll want to decide how deep you’d like your pool to be so you can select the wall height that best suits your needs. Manufacturers recommend you fill your pool 4 to 6 inches from the top of the wall, so you’ll want to take that into consideration if both adults and small children will be swimming.
Lastly, select your accessories, such as a liner, filter, ladder, and vacuum system, and decide if you would like a cover. There are many options to choose from depending on your preferences and budget.
There are lots of benefits to owning an above ground pool, including flexibility. They are available in oval and round shapes and can be installed in as little as 8 hours from start to finish. When no longer needed, above ground pools can easily be removed, as well as transferred in the case you move to a different house and want to take it with you.
