What to Consider When Shopping for the Best Above Ground Pool

Choosing an aboveground pool's easier than you think. These swimming pools are made to be easy to set up and require little care. Size and style will be your most important choices. But before you jump in, you should know what to do and what not to do when picking an aboveground pool.

Picking the Right Pool Size

When looking for the best pool, the first thing to look at is the size of the aboveground pool. The most accessible pools are small, inflatable aboveground pools with less than 1,000 gallons of water. Just blow it up when you want to swim and let the air out when you're done. There are no filters or poisons to worry about. It's a bathtub in the backyard, which is great for kids. 

Large aboveground pools with more than 1,000 gallons of water will need more care. Since these pools are always full of water, they need a filter and chemicals to keep the water clear and algae-free. Larger pools are more complex to take care of than inflatable pools. These big aboveground models are straightforward to care for daily and weekly. And it's easier to take care of an aboveground pool than a more expensive in-ground pool. Large aboveground pools can hold 8,000 to 15,000 gallons of water and can be more than 30 feet long. 

Remember to check how deep it is. Even though aboveground pools are usually less deep than in-ground pools, they may still be too deep for young children or people needing help swimming. (In as little as 1 inch of water, a child can die.) About 4.5 feet of water can go to the bottom of the more extensive ponds. Some small pools are only 3 inches deep. 

Type of Above Ground Swimming Pool

  • After you choose the size, you need to decide what kind of aboveground pool you want: Inflatable, with a steel frame, a plastic frame, an aluminium frame, a combination frame, or a half-ground frame. Don't worry; it is more complicated than it seems. 
  • Inflatable pools are easy to understand: Blow it up, put water in it, and you're ready to go. 
  • Aboveground types with a steel frame are held together by steel supports that go straight up. Plastic, vinyl, or cement can be used to make the walls and floor of the pool. Even though these pools are robust, they are heavy and may rust. Even Steel gets warm in the sun. Metal-frame pools are lighter than steel-frame pools, but the metal needs love, care, and a protective covering to keep it from rusting. 
  • Strong plastic is used to make aboveground pools made of resin. They are lighter and won't rust like steel frame pools. They can also take a lot of force without breaking, but they are more expensive.
  • Hybrid pools are solid and last long because they are made from more than one material. Things are kept light and cool with resin. Everything is held in place by steel supports. These blend types are cheaper than plastic pools and offer the best of both worlds. 
  • A more stable option is a semi-inground pool. These pools are made with a strong wall of stone or plastic that fits the outdoor decor. They are also called heated pools. They are made to fit your home, so you can change them in ways you can't with a store-bought pool. But they are expensive and last a long time. The good thing is that radiant pools look just like stylish in-ground pools.

Pool placement

Even though aboveground pools can be used in many different ways, they can't be put anywhere. Even a small hill can cause the water to push against the pool's walls, putting uneven pressure on the walls and liner. Putting a few bags of sand on the ground can help make things more even. 

You must follow the rules and codes for buildings in your area when putting an aboveground type. It generally means you can only close a pool to a power or property line. 

You must also leave two to three feet of room around the pool so people can get in and out quickly. You'll need an ample, flat, open space with grass, sand, or dirt. Could you not put it on brick or concrete? Stay away from trees. And only put it on a deck if the deck is ready for a pool and made for the job.

Saltwater Pool vs. Chlorine

Most aboveground pools use harsh chemicals like chlorine to keep the water clear. But an aboveground pool filled with salt water is safer. Saltwater pools still need chemicals to keep them clean, but they don't need nearly as much. People who want to use less chemicals and don't want to deal with much upkeep are turning to saltwater pools. 

It also feels better to swim in cold water. Because the water has fewer chemicals, it is not as hard on your eyes and face. 

Setting up an aboveground saltwater pool is as easy as any other one. You can also buy a kit that will turn a chlorine pool into a saltwater pool.


Again, inflatable aboveground pools are the easiest to set up. Use a pump to add air to the pool, then fill it with water. When installing a pool with vertical supports, there are a few more steps to take. Even though each pool has its directions, most can be set up in the afternoon and don't need extra power tools if everything fits together nicely. But you will need a hand or two to keep from getting upset. Make sure the area is level, set out all the parts, and know how the cover goes on the pool. Setting up the pool should be easy if you take your time.
