Buyers and Sellers: Above-Ground Pools in Somerset County, NJ

 

 

During the dog days of summer, who wouldn’t want a cool, refreshing pool right in their own backyard? In-ground pools which can cost tens of thousands of dollars and could impact a home’s value are not for everyone. Luckily, there’s an alternative. An above-ground pool costs far less than an in-ground one, doesn’t require a permit and it won’t impact the resale value of your home.

 

Here are some things to consider if you are thinking about getting an above-ground pool:

 

·         The two main types of above-ground pools are the ring pool and the frame pool. A ring pool is fairly inexpensive and easy to set up; however, they are smaller than other types of above-ground pools.

·         Frame pools are significantly larger and more expensive than a ring pool. Requiring professional installation, a frame pool can stay up year round if you choose. It is common for owners to integrate a frame pool into their yard by adding complementary decking and/or landscaping.

 

·         You will need chemicals and other equipment for most above-ground pools, including chlorine, a filter and an automatic pool cleaner. In addition, all homeowners with a pool must abide by local jurisdictions regarding appropriate fencing for safety purposes.

·         If you get an above-ground pool, don’t forget to notify your insurance agent as coverage policies vary.

Funny in our area above ground pools are typically a negative, but your post gave me a great idea for a local post.

Joy I also thought the points in the article were good even though it was different from what I had always been told!
