For the budget-conscious, above ground pools are reasonably priced and are the perfect way to ‘dip your toe’ into the world of home swimming pools
Economy versions for swimming pools across UK
are available seasonably from the High Street but remember you will need the back up of advice on things like water treatment and to buy specialist accessories.
Specialist suppliers will be able to offer a wider choice of design. There are many different above ground options available – and it is important not to make a decision based on price alone. Available in IUPVC, metal and wood, good quality above-ground pools start at around £3,000.
Although these pools are called ‘above ground’, some models are sturdy to be sunk into the ground – and with the imaginative use of decking, can create a complete garden makeover.
Expect to pay up to £12,000 for a luxury version, as for the increasingly popular wooden swimming pool
kits that blend so well with the garden decking designs.
Above ground pools are easily and very quickly installed, and most come with all filtration and equipment required to get you started. And the beauty of this option is that when the time comes to move house, you can simple drain and dismantle your pool before transporting and re-erecting it in its new location.
