Above Ground Pools

ABOVE GROUND POOL

These pools are built out of kits and share many qualities with the vinyl liner pool, because they too use a liner, only above ground. These types of pools are constructed by leveling out a piece of ground, erecting the pool’s framework, dropping in a liner, and filling. The main advantages are two – portability, and cost. The disadvantages are the unsightliness of the pool itself, the structural considerations of thousands of gallons of water above ground in a seismic zone, and the fact that the liner itself has all of the same issues as a vinyl liner pool.


There are many choices available to the homeowner, and many types of pools available to choose from. Study your choice carefully before parting with hard earned money.
