Eye Catching And Affordable Above Ground Swimming Pool
If you want to increase your home’s value and change your outdoor space into a place where your family can relax, adding a swimming pool is a great idea. While in ground structures are more popular, the lower cost of purchasing an above ground swimming pool version is making owning one more feasible. An above ground swimming pool come in two shapes; round and oval. These shapes are available in a number of sizes that most manufacturers sell. The most popular size is the 24 ft. round pool but round pools are available in diameters from 12 ft. to 33 ft. Oval pools usually start in the 12 ft. by 20-24 ft. size and get as large as 21 ft. x 41 ft. The area for your pool and your budget will combine to suggest the size that will work best. The ideal pool location will get at least 6-8 hours of sun during the summer and should be as flat and unobstructed as possible. Some newer oval designs have done away with buttresses that allows oval pools to go where ovals have never gone before.
An above ground swimming pool is nearly always made of either steel or resin/plastic. Steel pools have been around for more than 40 years. Resin pools are relative newcomers. Corrosion is always a problem with steel pools and resin pools definitely will not rust. Resin pools generally cost more but industry figures put the average life span of an above ground pool at between 4 and 5 years.
