It’s all about knowing what you actually need from your swimming pools, whether luxury, elegance, functionality, affordability, etc. In this post, we’ve put together 7 must-know things when choosing the right above ground pools for your home, your style, and your budget.
(1) What your Ideal Shape?
Swimming pools come in a vast variety of shapes. While you can find oddly shaped ones, most above ground pools come in oval, round, square or rectangle shapes. The thing is that the shape of your pool can make a huge difference. For instance, if you intended to use your pool to relax, hang out or swim recreationally, any shape can do the trick. However, if you fancy exercising using your pool, you probably want to stick with rectangular swimming pools.
When choosing how big your pool should be, think about how many persons are most likely to use it at the same time. How big is your family? Do you foresee that you'll have a big crowd using your pool frequently?
(3) Your Budget
How much can you afford? It’s a no-brainer to stick to above ground pools that are within your budget. The good news is that Pool N Stuff has an above ground pool for every personality and budget, ranging from sub-$300 to $10,000.
(4) Ease of Installation
If you’re planning to install the pool on your own, you might want to find out if it’s easy to set it up before buying it. You’d hate to take everything out of the box only to realize that you cannot set it up on your own.
(5) Safety of the Pool
Above ground pools are generally safe for everyone. However, it pays to check if the swimming pools you intend to choose from are safe for your loved ones, especially if you have kids.
At Pool N Stuff, we deliver best-in-class swimming pools, and we stand by our products. That’s why we offer a lifetime warranty for all our above ground pools so you can enjoy extra peace of mind. Well, if a company doesn’t provide you with a warranty, stay away from their swimming pools.
(7) Which Type is best for you?
As mentioned earlier, there are several different types of above ground pools, with metal frame and easy set pools being the most common ones. The metal frame above ground pools are more durable, hold more water, and sturdier than easy set pools because they are fitted with steel bars.
