First Time Pool Buyer

Choosing an above gound or semi-inground pool is no easy decision - these days there’s a swimming pool that’s right for virtually every individual or family looking to add the distinct lifestyle advantage of a backyard vacation to their home or property. Pool City offers options for everyone, including aboveground, semi-in-ground and in-ground styles. So how do you decide which style works best for you?

Barton Oval Metric Fixed.jpgThe answer isn’t easy, because there are considerations that make each pool an attractive option. Generally, the aboveground versus in-ground decision relies on four basic factors:

Budget: While either type of pool can add both aesthetic and intrinsic value to your home, there is a significant price difference between most aboveground and in-ground options. Above ground pools generally cost much less than traditional concrete, fiberglass or vinyl liner in-ground pools.

Installation and Style: What kind of landscape do you have? Is your yard on a slope? Is the terrain rocky? Do you have deed or neighborhood restrictions? It’s very important to consider all your limitations as well as the possibilities when planning your backyard pool. Radiant Pools offers installation options and alternatives to address whatever challenges arise when choosing right pool for your property. It’s always best to know what you can and can’t do before you make your investment.

Size and Shape: When adding a swimming pool, you must consider two areas: The available lot space on your property for the addition of a pool, and the area of the pool itself in relation to that space. Are there any local zoning limitations to consider? How will the pool look once installed?  Will the pool be a pleasing addition to your existing lot, or will it completely dominate your available space?
