6 Benefits of an Above-Ground Swimming Pool

If you haven't already heard, we're in the middle of our largest sale of the year on above-ground pools. So it's a good time to consider your options and discover the many surprising benefits of going "above ground."

When it comes to installing a swimming pool, you have several types to choose from. In-ground and above-ground pools both have their own unique advantages. For most people, the decision often comes down to personal preference or budget.

If you're thinking about installing an above-ground pool, but aren't yet sure it's right for you, here are some benefits to consider:

1) Affordability

Above-ground pools are a great option for families that are buying on a budget. And when you choose established brands like Doughboy, Sharkline or Celebration, you know that affordability doesn't mean a compromise in quality. These great-quality pools allow you to get your dream pool—one that will last for many years to come—at a price that makes sense for your family.

2) Lots of layouts and models to choose from

Shape, size, construction materials—there are so many great options to choose from when you buy an above-ground pool. That means you can have full control over the look and layout of your dream pool, as well as the cost. More options give you more flexibility with your budget and your space. How many pools are we talking about? At Crystal Pools, you can choose from more than 80 above-ground pools from the best brands in the industry.

3) Speedy installation
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.

4) 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.

5) More Safety

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.

6) Easy maintenance

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.
