    What is the easiest above ground pool to install?

    Inflatable pools
    Inflatable pools are by far one of the easiest to install and take down. With a pump, some can inflate in less than five minutes. Other designs, like resin or semi-inground pools, require installation similar to an in-ground model. The ground must be leveled and sand laid down so the pool doesn’t get punctured.

    Is an oval or round pool better?

    An oval pool, especially with a nice deck, can look much like an inground pool – at a vastly lower price. It gives you more length for swimming laps. Depending on your back yard, it may fit better – though it will take up more ground area than the equivalent round.

    Can you leave an above ground pool up all year?

    A common question asked is, “Can above ground pools stay up year round?” And although the easy answer is that “Yes, they can,” whether you want to leave them up year-round really depends on the type of pool you have.

    Is a round or rectangle pool better?

    Typically, a long, rectangular pool is based for laps since it lets you swim in a straight line. A rounded pool would be better for lounging and for recreational swims. These pools are usually smaller and do not have a straight path for swimming laps.

    What is a decent size pool?

    It’s recommended having a depth fewer than six feet to meet most pool needs. For a family of six to eight people, an 18 foot by 36-foot pool is recommended. This should be sufficient to avoid crowding and allow for the playing of games. Rectangle shaped pools look best for this size.
