So you’re finally considering purchasing a pool for your L.A home, but you don’t know where to start. If this is your first time purchasing a pool you may not know which pool is right for you. There are many types of pools on the market and each design has its benefits and drawbacks. In this article, theLAShop will help you decided between the two most popular pool structures the above ground pool and the in ground pool.
Why You Need a Pool
A pool is a perfect addition to any home and necessary to get through the hot summer days. Pools are a great way to cool down and relax on a warm afternoon, but they can also be a fun and easy way to exercise. With you very own pool, you can burn calories and lose weight while splashing around with the ones you love the most. However, not ever pool is for every family. Let’s discuss some of the differences.
Advantages to an Above Ground Pool
Above-ground pools are a popular choice for many families. Those who enjoy an above-ground pool often find creative builds, designs, and forms. For example, you may want to attach your above-ground pool to your deck, patio, or second-story to your home. Listed below are a few advantages to purchasing an above-ground pool.
Affordability. If you looking for a pool, but worried about the price, above-ground pools are a great place to start. These sturdy pools will last you years, but at a fraction of the price of inground pools. Be sure to check out prices before you make a decision as high-quality pools can be within your budget.
When time is a factor, an above-ground pool is an obvious choice. Because there is no digging required these types of pools are usually built quickly and affordably. How quickly your pool is installed is due to the condition of your backyard or patio. Be sure to do some maintenance and clear the area before you consider having a pool and getting it built. Want a pool ASAP? Above-ground pools can be installed surprisingly fast, so you can take a dip even sooner.
Installation times depend on several factors, including the state of your backyard and the style of pool you choose. For example, if your yard is currently covered in trees or needs to be graded for the pool, those steps will add to the overall time to complete the installation. But overall, if you’re looking to add a pool to your backyard in the shortest time possible, above-ground is probably the way to go.
DIY Options Available
For skilled men and women who prefer to build things on their own, some above-ground pools can be purchased with self-installation kits. These come with everything you need to install your pool on your own time and terms.
Don’t want to do it yourself? Don’t worry! Our experienced installers at Crystal Pools will do it for you, ensuring the absolute highest quality standards and adherence to both manufacturer guidelines and local municipal codes.
Every type of swimming pool should be installed with safety features, such as 48-inch tall fencing, to reduce the risk of accidents. If you have concerns about safety, consider that above-ground pools are inherently safer, because of their higher entry point (52″or 54″). The higher entry point means a lower risk of accidental falls.
Due to size and construction, many above-ground pools are easier to maintain. They may require fewer chemicals and less costly upkeep, ultimately saving you time and money.
