In Ground vs Above Ground?

Over the Past Decade Concrete Pools Have Become the Norm Over Above Ground Pools. Here Is Why.

Over the past decade, concrete pools have become increasingly popular and are a preferred choice over above-ground pools. While inground concrete pools make a more expensive investment, they come with several more perks. Let's take a closer look at some of the reasons why inground concrete pools are becoming the norm over above-ground pools.


Inground Pools Are More Secure

While your above-ground pool is not likely to rupture and fail in the short term, it will deteriorate much faster than a concrete pool and eventually fail completely. They have a much cheaper installation price up front, but will need replacing well before a concrete inground pool needs any significant expense. If you plan to live in the same house for 10-20 years or more, an inground concrete pool is a much wiser and more secure investment compared to a cheaper above ground type.


Concrete Pools Have More Room for Customisation

Another reason why inground pools are becoming increasingly popular than above-ground pools is that they have more room for creativity and customisation. With an inground pool, you can choose the shape and size of the pool that perfectly fits your backyard. Moreover, you can also add other accessories and water features to give your inground pool a unique look.

Furthermore, since you get the freedom of customisation with an inground pool, you can create a pool that best meets your needs, whether you want to swim laps or have a spa or different floor shape to standard, it is all possible with a concrete pool made on site.


Inground Pools are a Permanent Structure

If you choose an above-ground pool, know that you will have to replace your above-ground pool at least once every 7 to 15 years. The way they are built, makes them look like they are semi-permanent. However, that is not the case with inground pools. Moreover, an above-ground pool is also not considered a permanent addition to your home, so having an above-ground pool will not enhance your property value. But you can enjoy your property value appreciating by choosing an inground pool that is designed and integrated with your specific property.
