An ingound swimming pool isnt’ for everyone. If you’re renting a home or if you know you won’t be living in your home long-term you may not want to invest in an inground swimming pool. Should you get an above ground swimming pool? Only you can answer that question, but the swimming pool contractors from Tipton Pools in Knoxville, TN can give you some tips.

An above ground swimming pool can be almost as luxurious as an inground swimming pool, but they are definitely more economical and may be able to be taken with you if you move.

Should you get an above ground swimming pool?

An above ground swimming pool brings affordability and convenience for many people. You may be wondering how much an above ground pool costs — but just like an inground pool the answer is — it varies. Plan to spend between $2,500 up to close to $7,000 for your pool. There is no one size fits all answer when it comes to pricing because it will vary based on:

  1. Size
  2. Area to be excavated
  3. Style
  4. Accessories
  5. Shape and other variables

Some do it yourselfers can buy an above ground pool kit and bring in a few friends and put up the pool themselves. There are other potential pool owners who want to have an above ground pool, but simply don’t want to do it themselves. You may be able to find a pool contractor who will do this project for you.

When you have an above ground swimming pool constructed you will also need to determine whether you want a deck to surround the pool or if you simply want to have a ladder to get in and out of it. You may want an outdoor living space area that you will be updating and upgrading to help with the enjoyment of your new above ground swimming pool.
