Connecticut homeowners have lots of options for summer fun during hot weather, but there’s something special about having a summertime retreat on your own property. An above ground pool is a versatile option that adds value to your home while offering worry-free relaxation and relief from the summer sun. While many homeowners choose in-ground pools, there are several drawbacks to this choice compared to above ground pools. CT homeowners should investigate what Ambassador Pools can offer.

Why Choose an Above Ground Pool Instead of In-Ground?

An in-ground pool certainly adds value to a home, but they typically incur a much higher long-term cost of ownership compared to above ground pools. Repairs and maintenance costs tend to be much higher, maintenance takes much more time and effort, and they are virtually permanent. Above ground pools, on the other hand, are reliable, durable, customizable, and versatile. You won’t have to worry much about pool installation. CT homeowners who purchase above ground pools from Ambassador Pools can usually enjoy their new pools the very next day after installation.

Above ground pools are also relocatable. Instead of a permanent in-ground pool, if you decide to move to a new home you can take your above ground pool with you. If you decided to build an extensive deck structure on to your above ground pool, it will certainly boost your selling price should you decide to leave it at your old home and start with something new after moving. The choice is yours, but this option is only possible with above ground pools.

Fitting Your Pool to Your Home

With an above ground pool from Ambassador Pools, you have numerous options for customization to make your pool completely your own. Choose from a variety of decking styles to create the poolside space for you and your family and friends to enjoy all summer long. Above ground pools come in various styles ranging from simple free-standing pools to finished decks that connect to the house. When you work with Ambassador Pools, our team will work closely with you to help you create the perfect pool.

We can add another level to your existing deck for a seamless transition to your new pool space, or build an entirely new deck around the new pool. No matter where we need to install the pool, leveling the ground doesn’t take long and leaves minimal permanent evidence if you ever decide to relocate your above ground pool. Another advantage of above ground pools is you can always relocate them later if you move or want to remodel your outdoor spaces.

Installation is Fast and Painless

You won’t have to worry much about the hassles of pool installation. CT technicians from Ambassador Pools will help you choose your location, style, decking, and accessories, and then begin work. Construction typically only takes one to two days, and you and your family will be able to enjoy your pool the day following installation.

We start by leveling and grading the ground. Once the base, side panels, and frames are connected, we’ll fasten the liner to the frame with metal supports. Finally, we’ll add the accessories and decking before filling your pool. After filling, we’ll test the water to ensure it’s safe for swimmers. In-ground pools require extensive digging and underground structures. In some cases, these factors can affect property tax rates, insurance premiums, and other long-term costs. Above ground pools avoid these issues thanks to their portability and simple installation requirements.

Cost of Ownership

One of the most attractive aspects of above ground pools over in-ground pools is cost, both in initial purchase price and the long-term costs of pool ownership. In-ground pools are typically larger and deeper than above ground pools. This makes it much more difficult and expensive to keep them clean. In-ground pool filtration is complex, and significant issues can cause you to miss days or weeks of summer fun in the pool. 

Above ground pool maintenance is painless and simple. Our team will tell you which type and volume of chemical treatments you’ll need to keep your pool safe for swimming. It’s important to get the right type and amount. Too little, and your water won’t be clean and could start accumulating bacteria and mold. Too much, and your pool will have an unpleasant chemical smell and feel, and will more than likely be unpleasant for swimming. Simple and straightforward pool maintenance means you can enjoy your above ground pool all summer long without worrying about complicated chemical treatments.

Ultimately, how you design your above ground pool is entirely up to you, but no matter what size or style you choose, you can count on reliability, easy maintenance, and support from Ambassador Pools.
