Best Above Ground Pools To Buy
Hello and welcome to the most frequently read page on our website. If you’re like most people reading this, you are new to the idea of purchasing an above ground pool and have no idea where start. North Florida Above Ground Pools has installed thousands of swimming pools of all makes and models over the years and we are here to help you through the process. Besides, who’s better to ask than someone who has seen and installed them all.
Most people just want a good long lasting pool that will be easy to maintain and they don’t want to get ripped off in the process. No one wants to over pay and they don’t want to but junk either. So we have also simplified the process by giving you the short and sweet version of what to buy, where to buy it and why it’s good.
What To Buy
Like anything else, some pools are better than others. Basically when shopping for a new above ground pool it breaks down into three main pool components to consider, the pool, liner and equipment. All should all be made in the USA end of story. Why? Because American made pool products are better quality than the imported ones and you can always get replacement parts for name brand American products anywhere. And when I say American made pool I’m referring to the typical American made hard-wall or steel wall above ground pools. These tend to last an average of 15-20 years in Florida. The imported hard-wall pools last about 5-8 years while soft side and blow up pools tend to last only 1-2 years.
If you are shopping for pools under $1000.00, I suggest waiting until you have a larger budget to spend. Pools in this price range can often be more trouble than you bargain for. Soft sided pools from Walmart, Target and other big box stores include models from Intex, Coleman, Ultra Frame and others. These pools usually only last about 1-2 years and most people are so disappointed they shop for a different one the very next swim season. Aside from the fact they’re made from inferior materials, the pump and filter systems aren’t strong enough to circulate the pool water properly or run a vacuum for cleaning. This leads to green pool water and muck on the bottom. This is not what people signed up for when making their pool purchase.
Where To Buy
I recommend PoolsAboveGround.com. Where you buy your pool from can be as important as what pool you buy. I recommend these guys because they’re been right here in Florida for decades. They’re honest, friendly, sell only good stuff and really know above ground pools. If you are doing the pool install yourself you’ll really appreciate the live tech support. And if you have any parts issues you’ll be glad to know they remedy them immediately. Another big reason is you can always get someone on the phone. I have sent many customers to Pools Above Ground over the years and honestly I don’t know what more you could ask for.
If you’re doing the install yourself or having a professional do the install you may want to start with a good pool and great dealer support. This will ensure you have a pool that last for decades and a dealer you can count on when you need them.
