Inground or Above Ground Pools?

above ground poolThinking about making a splash by buying a family swimming pool? Sure, why not? However, before you jump in with both feet, you need to decide what kind of pool you want for your home.

The big decision boils down this: Do you want an inground or an above ground pool? Let’s dive in and take a look at the factors that are likely to shape your decision:

Think about your budget. An above ground pool will (usually) be less expensive than an inground pool. At the same time, think about the pool as a long-term investment. An inground will likely increase the value of your home, more so than an above ground pool. An above ground pool does not require the same commitment as an in-ground pool. An above ground pool can be removed or dismantled much easier than an inground pool.

Presumably, swimming is near the top of the list. Is your yard able to handle an inground pool or would it be better served by an above ground pool?

The installation process. Above ground pools require less installation, excavation, supply and labor costs. Inground pools offer more flexibility for your swimming experience. There tends to be a deep and a shallow end and it’s much easier to regulate water temperature with an inground pool.

Brothers Pool offers vinyl and fiberglass inground pools. Brothers Pool is also part of United Aqua Group. We are a proud carrier of Viking pools, the finest inground fiberglass pools on the market.

If you are in the market for an above ground pool, Brother Pool has a full line of Doughboy Pools. These pools come with premium liners that are heavier and more durable than most above ground pool liners.
