If you live anywhere where it gets warm around swimsuit season, you’ve heard the question and might have even asked it yourself: Can we get a pool?
If the answer to that question is “yes” then you often come to another question: What kind?
There are pros and cons for both in-ground and above-ground pools. Above-ground pools tend to be safer, because they’re significantly harder to accidentally fall into. Above-ground pools also tend to cost less in the way of installation and repairs.
In-ground pools tend to look nicer with less work, since they don’t interrupt the scape of your yard-space. They also tend to increase the value of your home, should you ever seek to sell your property. To help with landscaping and upkeep of in-ground pools, you may consider hiring pool services. San Clemente has several options for creating the perfect comfortable space for your pool.
In-ground pools also don’t come with the necessary seasonal set-up and deconstruction.
While in-ground pools tends to last longer, since they’re less out of the way when it comes to elemental damage and are made out of sturdier stuff, like concrete or fiberglass, they also tend to cost a hefty amount when something does go wrong. With above-ground pools, if something happens, it’s often fairly easy and cost-effective to simply replace the pool when all else fails.
If you’re set on installing an in-ground pool, there are companies that specialize with both installation and repairs.
Above-ground pools need to have a safe storage place when it’s been put up for the off-months and not in current use, but overall, when it comes to maintenance, cleaning, filter maintenance, and general upkeep tend to be about the same for both in-ground and above-ground pools. Ultimately, the decision is yours to make based on your unique needs and budget.
