When it comes to deciding between an above-ground pool and an in-ground pool, it really depends on what the homeowners are looking for in a pool.

 

Here are some benefits to owning an above-ground pool.

 

Cost is a big factor in deciding between an above-ground pool and an in-ground pool. An above-ground pool can be up to thousands of dollars cheaper than an in-ground pool.

 

An above-ground pool is also easier to install than an in-ground pool, and it comes with the flexibility of not being permanent. If you decide you want your yard back, you can simply take down the above-ground pool. And if you move, you can always take the above-ground pool with you. In contrast, in-ground pools are permanent.

 

Above-ground pools typically take up less space than an in-ground pool, leaving you more yard for other purposes. This also means that since the above-ground pools are smaller, you will need less chemicals and cleaning supplies to maintain them.
