Everyone can imagine warm summers by the pool, grilling steaks, hamburgers or hot dogs on the barbecue while your children laugh and splash around in the pool in a frenzy of delight. The memories that will last a lifetime from such cherished moments make investing in an above ground swimming pool that much more rewarding.
Of course, cost is also another benefit. Most above ground swimming pools cost between $4,000 and $5,000 and last an average of 15 to 20 years, whereas an inground swimming pool, though built for permanence, can run anywhere from $30,000 to $50,000.
Difference in Cost Between In Ground and Above Ground Swimming Pools
When thinking about installing a swimming pool your first decision will need to be between an in ground pool and an above ground pool.
You will see that many people who live in the warmer climates of the United States have installed swimming pools to give their family exercise, fun, and a place to relax. When thinking about installing a swimming pool your first decision will need to be between an in ground pool and an above ground pool.
Above ground pools are much less expensive, usually ranging in price from $1500.00 to $5000.00 depending on size and additional options. Besides being less expensive above ground pool are also much easier to install, with many of them only taking a few hours for complete installation. If you want to save even more money you can even opt to do the installation yourself, although most will probably want to stick with professional installers.
You can expect to pay quite a bit more for an in ground pool, with typical prices ranging from $7000.00 to more than $45000.00, again based on size and the various options you order. The most expensive type of in ground pool is the custom poured concrete lined pool which can be created in any shape or size you desire. There are many options when it comes to heating your in ground pool: solar heated, standard heated, and non-heated. If you choose to have a solar heated pool the contractor will need to be sure that the pool is placed in a location that gets maximum exposure to the sun. The temperature of the pool is also determined by the color of the pool bottom. You will get warmer water with a darker colored bottom, as it
attracts and retains the heat of the sun. If you live in a particularly warm climate you will want to consider painting the bottom of your pool a light color to keep the water cooler.
The local zoning and building regulations should be consulted by both the home owner and the contractor to learn of any codes governing the building of pools, decks, or pool houses. If you live in a code restricted neighborhood, you will also need to consult your local home owners association. Knowing and following these regulations will ensure that you do not have problems with your pool or pool construction later on down the road.
Choosing an Above Ground Pool
One of the most enjoyable parts of summer is slipping into a cool and refreshing swimming pool.
A swimming pool is like a cool oasis in the midst of the summer heat. A nice refreshing swimming pool calls to you, and once in it is hard to get out.
You can use swimming pools for either competitive swimming or recreational activities. You can add both value and style to your home by installing a swimming pool.
The two main types of swimming pools are in ground and above ground. An in ground pool will need to be installed by a professional contractor and is a permanent structure that can not be moved. Above ground pools can often be easily installed by their owners, which may account for their current rise in popularity.
If you are looking for a swimming pool to meet the recreational needs of your family you will love the low cost option of an above ground swimming pool. These pools usually come in pre-fabricated kits that make them incredibly easy to install. While many people choose to have their above ground pools installed by a professional pool contractor who offers a guarantee on their work, many skilled do it yourselfers will have no problem installing one on their own.
You pool will be installed in an organized fashion if you do choose to hire a professional. The first step a professional will take is to level the ground on which your pool will sit. The base track can then be
assembled, sand is laid, and the plumbing is connected. Once these steps are completed the pool liner can be installed and smoothed. The pool contractor will ensure that the liner is completely secured prior to filling the pool with water. The pumping and filtering systems can be installed and checked after the pool is filled. The only other step that needs to happen is that you dive in and enjoy.
