So you want to buy an Above Ground pool, but where do you begin? Here’s a step by step walkthrough of what you’ll need to get outfitted for fun in the sun this summer.
1. What size and shape should your pool be?
The size and shape of your pool could be the most important thing that you decide on when selecting a pool. The amount of length and width that your backyard provides is the most important factor, as is the shape. Oval pools, though slightly more expensive than round, are great space savers. Many oval pools also come with buttress-free support beams, which save space with no diminished wall strength. Click here for a picture of the Yardmore brace-less design.
UPDATE: You should allow around 15 square feet of water surface for each swimmer. Example – Our 15’x30 Oval San Marino Above Ground Pool has around 350 square feet of surface area, enough room for 23 bathers.
2. Decide what pool material you would like your pool to have:
Whether you choose the traditional strength of our steel pool, our technologically advanced resin construction or the superior performance of our aluminum pool, all Sharkline Pools are constructed to give you years of backyard enjoyment.
