4 Types of Pools To Consider This Summer
Pools are fantastic additions to homes during the hot summer months, but it can be difficult to determine the best available options for your home. Depending on your expectations, the size of your yard, and your budget, different types of pools offer different benefits and drawbacks. At the Pool and Spa Depot, we help homeowners develop their ideal pools with custom touches based on four categories of pools. You should know the differences between them and the advantages each type offers.
An inground pool is exactly what it sounds like: a pool built into the ground. These are the most expensive types of pools to install and maintain, but they generally offer the most customization and you can have them built much deeper than other pool options allow. You can have an inground pool installed by Pool and Spa Depot with three different types of liners. Vinyl liners and fiberglass pools are available in many different shapes and styles, and gunite pools are fully customizable.
These pools are the most budget-friendly pool option for your home, but they are somewhat limited compared to inground pools when it comes to shapes, styles, and depths. Most above-ground pools are available up to five feet deep, but this limitation comes with the advantage of being one of the most economical pool styles. Above-ground pools are cheaper to install and maintain than most other types of pools, and it’s always possible to upgrade them to an on-the-ground style pool.
Think of this type of pool as an above-ground pool with an attached deck space. An on-the-ground pool is more than just a pool, it’s a whole pool area complete with decking and seating space for more robust outdoor entertaining around the pool. It’s not uncommon for a homeowner to invest in an above-ground pool and love it so much that they decide to invest in additional decking around it for a more inviting and beautiful space to spend summer days.
Semi-Inground Pools (Stealth Pools)
These pools are ideal for sloping yards and offer the best of both above-ground and inground pools. When you choose a semi-inground pool, the pool is built into a slope of your yard. The pool will be partially inground and partially above ground, offering plenty of opportunity to add touches like brickwork or concrete walking paths around the pool space. This option is usually more budget-friendly and cheaper to maintain than an entirely inground pool.
One of the best parts of deciding to have a pool installed at your home is the customizable available. Pool and Spa Depot offers a wide range of customization options for all types of pools. We can help you find one that meets your expectations and fits within your budget. Contact us today for more information about the pools we install and how we can help you.
