Aboveground swimming pools constitute about 50% of all pool sales in the United States.
More and more people are choosing above ground swimming pools than a regular in ground swimming pool due to their durability and variety of options.
Others turn to these pools due to their low installation cost. Installation is fairly easy, if you're not the one doing the pool installation. Some concern must be taken into consideration. These pools do need a certain level of competence installing them. Take your time, read the directions, and do the job right the first time around. Don't rush or cut any corners because you could have a dangerous mess on your hands if you're not careful.

Remember when buying an aboveground pool, especially a used one, the most expensive component will be the liner. If the vinyl liner is fairly new, say less than 2 years old, it might be worth your while and try to install it with a back-of-your-brain assumption that you will need to buy a new one. Even minor shrinking that can occur may cause wrinkles and the liner might not fit as it was.
