What factor do we take into consideration choosing a swimming pool for our home? We want the affordable, durable and nice swimming pool which we will use at least 10 years.
Unfortunately, an in-ground pool does not meet all these requirements. Of course, it can be used 10 years and even more, but its installation costs a pretty penny. Comparing expenditures connected with purchase and installation of the in-ground and above-ground pool, it should be said the first type of the swimming pool is thousands dollars more expensive than the second type. It explains why in-ground pools sales volume has slid as much as 75%.
The most common drawback of the above-ground pool was the way it looked. But today it is a problem no more. New materials and protecting coverings made this type of the swimming pool much better and easy on the eye. In turn, high technologies made it safer and stronger. Protective coverings prevent rust and other damages caused by bad weather and other external factors.
Thanks to great variety of forms and use of some decorative elements the above-ground pool can match any landscape design. The owner of the swimming pool can decorate with trim stone, place a wood deck near it or install the pool right near the patio. It is a nice and safe alternative to the in-ground pool with sharp corners, especially if it made of cement.
