Above Ground Pool FAQs
How long does an above ground pool typically last?
An above-ground pool generally lasts anywhere from 5 to 15 years.
What type of above ground pool is best for me?
This will depend on several factors. Who will be using the pool? Will mostly adults or kids be using the pool? If you have small children that will want to enjoy the water, buy an inflatable kiddie pool which is smaller and more shallow than your typical family pool. If you have older children, teens and adults who will use the pool, a typical above-ground pool that ranges between 48 and 52 inches in height is a good option. If you’ll want to play team games, consider a rectangular shaped pool so players can choose ends.
How do I maintain my above ground pool?
It’s important to maintain the water’s hygiene as well as the function of your pump and filter. Here are some good tips for maintaining your above-ground pool: Turn on your pool filter and let it run for about 8 hours each day, Check your chlorine levels to ensure that the water is hygienic and safe for swimming (typically, chlorine levels should be between 1 ppm – 3 ppm), Check your pH levels for optimal hygiene as well (typically, pH levels should be between 7.2 – 7.6), Skim for debris, vacuum, and brush the pool on a weekly basis, Check your water filter’s pressure and ensure your pump is functioning optimally, and Make sure the surrounding areas of your pool are as clean as possible to prevent the depositing of debris in the pool.
