Above-Ground or In-Ground Pool – Which is right for you?

There are a number of factors that come into consideration when deciding whether to go with an in-ground or above-ground pool for your home:


The first thing to consider when deciding between an in-ground and above-ground swimming pool is your budget. Above-ground swimming pools are generally less expensive than in-ground pools, and they are typically easier and less costly to maintain. However, while an in-ground swimming pool is more expensive to build and maintain, it will add significantly more value to your home. Get a quote from your pool contractor to see what the difference will be between an above-ground and custom in-ground swimming pool.


Money aside, identify why you want a pool in the first place. This will help you decide between an in-ground and above-ground swimming pool. For example, if you are buying a swimming pool for exercise or to practice diving, you may prefer the size and depth of an in-ground pool. On the other hand, if you want to be able to bring your swimming pool with you when you move, an above-ground option is the way to go.
