Pro Tips for Pool Owners

Determining the cost of an above ground pool can be a challenge as prices can vary widely, with options ranging from short-term, soft-sided pools priced at a few hundred dollars, to more expensive hard-sided models that are designed to last. However, by choosing from a selection of quality brands such as Doughboy Pools, Embassy Pools, and Radiant Pools, you can find a durable, hard-sided pool that fits both your budget and backyard, as they are available in a range of sizes and prices.

To obtain a more accurate pricing estimate, we recommend contacting or visiting one of our stores and speaking with a sales representative who can help you determine the cost based on factors such as the size, shape, and brand of the pool you are interested in.

Maintaining an above ground pool doesn’t have to be an overly complicated task, as long as it is performed regularly. The required maintenance will depend on several factors, such as the size of the pool and how often it is used.

No matter your pool model, there are certain tasks that apply to a healthy maintenance procedure, including:

  • Cleaning the pool regularly using a leaf skimmer, brush, and vacuum to remove dirt, debris, and other impurities.
  • Testing and balancing the chemicals in the water to ensure a safe and comfortable swimming experience.
  • Monitoring and managing the pool pump and filter to keep the water circulating and clean.
  • Maintaining the appropriate water levels to preserve the pool's walls and structure.

By consistently performing these maintenance tasks, you can help ensure that your above-ground pool remains in excellent condition for many years to come.

If you prefer a professional assists you with pool maintenance, A-1 Pools also offers excellent ongoing customer care and support. As such, you can fully pass off your pool maintenance to the A-1 Service Team!

If you're looking to give your above ground pool the appearance of an inground pool, there are several options available. One popular method is to build a deck around the pool, which can be constructed either slightly above the top rails or directly beneath them. This creates a more seamless transition between the pool and the surrounding deck, giving it a more in-ground appearance. Another option is to install a semi-inground pool, such as those offered by Radiant Pools. These pools are designed to be sturdy enough to be partially recessed into the ground, creating the illusion of an in-ground pool. Doughboy Above Ground Pools are also unique in that their strong walls and frames allow them to be recessed into the ground or installed at ground level, depending on your preference. This gives you the flexibility to choose the installation method that best suits your aesthetic and functional needs.

At A-1 Pools, we can provide a complete package that includes the pool wall, frame, liner, pump, and filtration system for your convenience. You have the choice to install the pool above ground or partially in the ground. A-Pools offers onsite consultations to help you find the best installation point, and upon request, can also provide you with a list of local contractors to assist you with the installation. From there, you can opt to install the pool yourself using the manufacturer's instructions or hire a professional contractor.
