Do you desire to gift your family a swimming pool but are put off by the cost? Many people overlook other types of swimming pools apart from conventional inground pools. But there are more affordable options in aboveground pools. An experienced pool contractor can do an aboveground pool installation with as much value as an inground pool. If you want to install a swimming pool, you should consider aboveground concrete pools for several reasons.
If you compared an aboveground and inground pool of the same size, the cost would differ greatly. An aboveground pool doesn't need a hole in the ground, which means lower site preparation costs.
These costs are usually high, especially for hard or rocky ground where the contractor needs heavy equipment. This difficulty applies to terrain with a very steep slope. A high water table can also make site preparation difficult because of waterproofing. Taking this cost out of the bill reduces the pool's price significantly.
Aboveground pools offer more savings in the ease of installing piping and other pool fixtures. An easier job translates into lower labor costs.
Aboveground concrete pools work well for properties squeezed for space. You only need space to erect the pool walls instead of an extensive apron. An aboveground pool will fit in the average-sized backyard. Oval-shaped aboveground pools work well for small rectangular spaces, while round pools look good in square spaces.
Easier to Maintain
Aboveground concrete pools have visible pipes and fixtures, which are easy to inspect for faults. A pool contractor will have an easier time doing repairs because they can easily identify leaks or other faults and the extent of the damage. In addition, working on the fixtures is quicker, which translates to lower repair costs.
The ease of inspecting the aboveground pool walls for leaks is a great advantage because you can locate and repair cracks and fissures before they spread. It can be a big money saver.
Safer for Kids
Aboveground concrete pools offer a better proposition for homes with very young children. They can't climb into the pool without a ladder. Even pre-teens will find it problematic to climb the walls. You can remove the ladder when the pool is not in use. Without the ladder, there are fewer worries for children playing in the backyard without supervision.
