Above-ground pools are installed at ground level, so the entire pool extends above the ground. Unlike in-ground pools and semi-in-ground pools, these pools don’t require heavy equipment or a permanent installation.
Most above-ground pools come as a kit, with a steel or aluminum wall, a resin or fiberglass post system, and a vinyl liner.
Above-ground pools are popular because they are much more affordable than alternatives. These pools can also be relocated, and if you ever choose to remove the pool, it’s a much easier process.
But, an above-ground pool has a shorter lifespan, and they don’t offer the same visual appeal as other pool styles.
