Choosing a swimming pool for your backyard oasis is exciting, but it’s hard to know which is the best for you with so many options available. From in-ground pools to plunge pools and lap pools, they all have their pros and cons. If you’re on a sloping block or a site that is better suited to an elevated pool, an above ground pool could be the perfect solution.
Benefits Of Above Ground Pools
Cost-effective: Above ground fibreglass pools are more affordable than their inground counterparts. Not only can you save money on the installation process itself by requiring less excavation work and fewer tradespeople on the job, but they are much easier to maintain, so that you can save on these costs as well.
More variety: With above ground swimming pools, you’ll find a plethora of designs available, including family-friendly pools, plunge pools, lap pools and spas. Narellan Pools range of above ground fibreglass swimming pools are available in various colours and pool water options, including mineral water and saltwater. You will also have a child safety ledge around the perimeter.
Easier to install: On tricky sites where the ground is sloped, installing an above ground pool installation is much easier than other types. There’s no massive machinery needed to clear out big holes in the backyard. And, depending on the levelling process, you could even have your pool fully installed within a day!
Easier to maintain: Above ground swimming pools are generally smaller than inground, making them much easier to clean. They require fewer chemicals, and the filter is much more efficient – which saves you time and money.
When installing a swimming pool in your yard, whether it’s inground or above, you don’t want to take any risks. That’s why you should always hire a professional company to assist. At Narellan Pools, we take pride in our work and we can complete the installation process, from start to finish, keeping you updated along the way.
Deciding where you want the pool to go is the first step in the installation process. Remember, the pool won’t be easy to move once it’s filled with water. Try to find a spot in the yard that is level, or at the very least, on a sloping hill (so you can build a retaining wall). You want it to be close to a hose or water source so you can fill it easily, close to electricity so you can plug in the pump, somewhere the sun hits to help warm it up, and in a location that offers good drainage for any overflow.
Next, you need to apply for council approval to make the changes to your yard, and you also may need to register your pool with your State Government. You should also remember that pool fencing is required around all pools within Australia that are deeper than 30cm – so take that into account when deciding the location and budget for your pool.
Once you have decided on a location and have the approvals in place, your Narellan Pools pool builder will clear the area and level the site before covering it with sand to better grip the pool. Next, we’ll arrange the framing, including the walls of the pool and any supports for decking and walkways. The best thing about our fibreglass above ground pool shells is that they are already manufactured as a single shell – so installation is the easy part.
And the final step, fill it with water and ensure you use the right chemicals to get the water healthy and ready for swimming.
