Inground Vs. Above Ground Swimming Pools
With all the extra time spent at home this summer, inground and above ground pool installation is more popular than ever. Before choosing to install an inground or above ground pool, it is important to know the differences between the two types of pools. Inground and above ground pools differ in their price, installation process, size, and shape. Below we have outlined the most important differences between inground and above ground swimming pools.
What is an Inground Swimming Pool?
As the name implies, an inground swimming pool is installed directly into the ground. Inground pools can increase the property value of your home and can be easily integrated into the landscape design of your backyard. Inground pools come in almost any shape, style, and design. There are tons of options for pool liners, stairs, and shapes and they can be combined with an inground pool or spa.
What is an Above Ground Pool?
As the name implies, an above ground swimming pool is installed on top of your yard. Above Ground pools are slightly more limited in the number of available shapes and designs, but they are flexible in where and when they can be installed. Above Ground pools can still be incorporated into the landscape design of your backyard with the help of an elevated deck or patio.
Inground vs Above Ground Pool Pricing
One of the main differences between inground and above ground pools is their pricing. Due to the more permanent installation of an inground pool, they are more expensive, but usually have a longer lifetime and a greater return on investment in terms of your property value. An above ground pool is a great budget option when looking to cool off this summer. They are cheaper than inground pools as they are installed without any major construction. However, they usually have a shorter lifespan.
Inground vs. Above Ground Pool Installation
Above Ground pools are a great temporary solution for anyone looking to swim this summer with either a limited budget, limited space in their backyard, or a limited amount of time. Above Ground pools can be installed in no time and range in size from modest to large models. As a cheaper alternative to inground pools, they are a great option for anyone looking to swim this summer without the permanence of an inground pool.
Inground pools on the other hand are a more expensive investment that will last a significantly longer period of time. If you are looking to invest in fun and fitness for your family for years, an inground pool is a great solution. With an inground pool, you will be able to customize the shape and size to fit your exact dimensions. Then, you will be able to swim in the comfort of your backyard summer after summer.
