Inground Pools vs Above Ground Pools
What's the difference between an inground and above ground pool? With an inground pool you can have: a deep end, diving boards, water slides, water features, and walk-in steps, for enhanced accessibility. Both an Inground and Above Ground pool will require permits. An inground pool will increase your property taxes . An Onground or Semi-Inground or Above Ground pool will not increase your property taxes. Both an Above Ground and Semi-Inground pool can move with you to your new house. A new liner will be required every time you move the pool.
Inground Pool Tips
· You can save thousands of dollars by installing your inground pool yourself
· Before purchasing an inground pool ensure that you have ample space in your backyard and take into consideration potential roadblocks like buried gas lines or septic systems
· When installing your pool make sure you double and triple check all your measurements
· During installation of your pool ensure every bolt is fastened tightly
· When installing your inground pool the ground must be properly graded
· Inground pools with resin components can be used with a salt water system
· Only install a slide or diving board if your inground pool has enough depth
How long does a Inground take to make?
A concrete pool typically takes the longest to install. This is because the concrete has to be fully cured before construction can be completed. Concrete takes at least 28 days to cure, under perfect circumstances. It can take longer in less than ideal weather. As such, from start to finish, a concrete pool can take anywhere from 3–6 months to complete.
A vinyl liner is in the middle range for length of time to install.
This type of pool takes anywhere from 4–8 weeks to install, depending on the size of the pool, the weather elements, and whether you are doing it yourself or hiring professionals.
What are the costs associated with different pool types?
A concrete pool is by far the most expensive type of pool to construct. Depending on the size and shape of the pool, a concrete pool typically runs anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000. In addition to the initial cost being high, the cost of maintaining the pool is also high. A concrete pool will cost an average of $27,400 to maintain over a 10-year period.
The cheapest option for pools is vinyl liner pools.
A vinyl liner pool can cost around $20,000 if you decide to do it yourself. It may cost anywhere from $35,000 to $65,000 when you hire a professional to do it for you.
Over a 10-year period, this type of pool costs around $11,500 to maintain.
What is involved in the construction process?
Before construction can begin, the right permits need to be pulled and obtained.
The permits needed vary based on the type of pool you are having installed and the county, city, and state or province you reside in.
Once the permits are pulled, the land must be prepared for the pool to be installed.
This includes excavating your property and performing rough grading for the pool, patio, and planting areas.
Once this step is done, you will see where your pool is going and where your landscaping, patios, and other items are flattened to make way for them.
Once the land is flattened, the installation process can begin.
Typically the framing and plumbing is installed first.
Next any concrete that is needed for a concrete shell or the floor for a liner is poured.
After that is poured, the pool masonry, tile and coping is done.
Once all of that is dried and cured, the pump and filter systems are brought in.
Once the pool plaster is in, the pool can be filled with water and the chemical balances are established.
A final inspection is done before the process is complete and your pool is ready.
How do I keep my children safe around my inground?
The Consumer Safety Protection Commission (CPSC) recommends taking measures to prevent children from accessing the water when there is no adult supervision. When planning a pool, include a fence around the perimeter in your plans. (Your municipality may demand it—and it’s a good idea in any case.) Gates should be self-closing, self-latching, and lockable. Door, gate and pool alarms should be installed along with anti-entrapment drain covers and securable pool covers. Everyone using the pool should be taught to swim, and someone in the family should be trained in CPR, first aid, and emergency response.
What should I consider before buying an Inground pool?
Consider long-term costs.
Owning a swimming pool does have costs and are dependent on area you live in and type of equipment you have. .Upkeep, especially if you take a few energy-saving steps (more on that below), can reduce your costs. But it’s best to have an idea of what those costs are. Factor in how much water it will take to keep your swimming pool full, cleaning and water maintenance costs, any accessories (pool covers, filters, toys, etc.)
When establishing a budget, don’t forget to think long term. Contact your insurance carrier and find out if the costs remain the same or will increase. Regardless of costs it is highly advisable you let them know you will be installing a in-ground swimming pool.
Know how you want to use your pool.
Stop and think about why you’re installing a swimming pool. Is it for your kids? For entertaining? Is it an investment? Do you want it to make a dramatic architectural statement? Or is a relaxing retreat for you and your spouse? Answering these questions will help tell you what kind of swimming pool you want. A swimming pool for kids might include a slide and a wading area. It probably doesn’t need high-end glass tile finishing or a vanishing edge. But if you want something that is as visually appealing as it is enjoyable to use, you might consider a built-in water feature, more expensive coping, and a negative edge.
Is an Inground going to decrease the value of my home?
A swimming pool will has been shown to help homes sell faster. A finished backyard with a swimming pool may actually increase the value of your home.
How much will chemicals cost?
The cost for pool chemicals averages between $50 and $100 per month, depending on your climate, pool size, and frequency of use. Chemicals for above-ground pools will cost about the same as those for in-ground pools similar in size.
Will my utilities bill go up?
Note that utility bills tend to increase during a pool's open season, due to the electricity needed to power the pump. Heated pools require even more energy.
What is an Onground swimming pool?
An onground swimming pool gives you the look and feel of an inground pool, but at a lower cost and with faster installation. Designed to partially submerge in the ground, these versatile "semi-inground" pools pair perfectly with different types of decking and are an ideal option for backyards with considerable grades.
What are the benefits of an onground pool?
-Since you install onground pools only partially in the ground, these pools do not require as much planning, time, work, or excavation that their inground pool counterparts do.
-Onground pools are typically more versatile for backyards, making them a better option for some landscape types. Furthermore, onground pools are typically sturdier than above ground pools and are typically constructed from super-durable, corrosion-resistant materials like aluminum and high-quality foam.
-Onground pools have fully insulated walls that will allow for burying. This means that your pool water will be kept warm for longer than a traditional above ground pool!
-With an onground pool you have the option of adjusting the height of your pool to meet with your patio or deck in your backyard—something that cannot be done with a pool that is fully inground.
-Some of our customers like to use the raised sides of an onground pool for bar space, water features (like waterfalls or vanishing edges), and multiple pool entry points.
-An onground pool offers more flexible installation options than traditional inground pools and they are typically more affordable, too.
Are onground pools better than inground pools?
Although onground pools have the same durable materials as inground pools, they have a sand bottom (instead of concrete) and different backfill application. Depending on the pool design, you can make your onground pool look just as nice and easy to access as an inground pool. Furthermore, wooden decks that surround and are level with the pool give the appearance and access of an inground pool. Essentially with an onground pool you can have the look of an inground pool, for less.
What is the installation timeline for an inground?
An onground pool requires less digging and excavation compared to an inground pool. If you are comparing the installation process and landscape of an onground pool to an inground pool, the onground pool will take much less time to construct. Inground pools typically have additional landscaping that could involve a great deal of stonework, masonry and concrete. An onground pool is recommended with a deck surround, which can be completed within a week or couple weeks time (depending on your contractor). Install time may vary however depending on your design concept (surround finishing, water features, landscape, etc).
What are some onground pool problems to watch out for?
We needed a custom size liner for our older above ground pool . We just ordered the closest larger size and the PTL folks made one to fit our measurements . Fit like a glove .
Very pleased !! - Jim Dawson
All I can say is nothing but great things about the above ground pool I purchased, great quality, easy to assemble, fast delivery and most importantly great customer service dealing with Christine. I had some installation questions and I spoke with Christine and Gord who were very helpful. Gord was especially helpful in clarifying a couple of specific skimmer installation methods and options that I had inquired about. This company and their customer service team is terrific. I highly recommend PTL Direct . - Jerry
Great product! As an installer we haven't come accross a manufacturer that has this level of fit and Finnish. Very robust tracks! Dimensions and tolerances are great. - Scott
We looked all spring and summer of 2020 for an above ground pool and everyone was sold out! The staff at PTL Direct came to the rescue and had some in stock in August! I cannot praise the customer service enough. We were new to the world of pools and they answered every newbie question promptly and clearly. And when we were a few parts short, they actually delivered them to our mailbox personally. For real. Thank you, PTL, for the great service and a great product. 5+ stars and would send my friends here in a heartbeat! - Michelle Lavoie
Has changed our life, pool is easy to maintain and the 12 round works perfect in a smallish city backyard. Couldn't be happier and Gord, the installer was 100% amazing. Great, affordable investment! - Jacqueline McKenzie
We love our pool! Huge thank you to PTL Direct! For your patience with my many questions and your advice! We received our pool within a week of ordering it, I was very impressed, great quality! Thanks again! - Robyn Hickson
