Backyard swimming pools can provide hours of fun and relaxation every swimming season. However, not every family wants or is able to go to the expense of installing a permanent, in-ground pool in their backyard. Yet, even when that's the case, you can still transform your backyard into a private oasis and enjoy the fun and excitement of owning a pool with an above ground swimming pool. Available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and models, above ground pools are the ideal option for many families and can be very easy to install and maintain.
Different above ground swimming pools feature different construction styles, which affects how they are installed and disassembled. One of the most popular construction styles for above ground pools is the galvanized steel construction style. Many pool models feature a galvanized steel wall and a specially coated galvanized steel frame which provides exceptional strength and support. The special outer coating on the frame protects the pool from corrosion and other damage caused by exposure to the elements. Further strength is often provided by sturdy top rails, moulded connectors and buttress support systems.
Installation and set up of galvanized steel above ground swimming pools is very straightforward, especially considering that many models come with step-by-step instructions and a handy installation video. Once you have an area of level ground large enough to accommodate your swimming pool, simply fit all the pieces together by following the provided instructions. After the walls, frame and liner are installed, all you need to do is fill the pool with water and hook up the pump and filter.
For even faster and easier assembly, soft-side above ground pools are an excellent option. An example of a quality soft-side above ground pool is the Intex Easy Set pool. These pools can be ready for water in just 30 minutes and require little more than a level location. Intex Easy Set above ground swimming pools feature an inflatable top ring which supports the liner and which lifts up off the ground on its own as the water level rises. As easy to take down as they are to set up, soft-side pools are extremely convenient. Yet, at the same time, they are constructed from multiple layers of super-strong material, providing outstanding durability.
No matter what the shape, size or construction of your above ground pool may be, having the proper equipment will make your pool very easy to maintain. For all swimming pools, pumps and filters are absolutely essential. By circulating the pool water and by cleaning the water by removing debris particles, the pump and filter create and maintain a healthy swimming environment. While pumps and filters for above ground pools are readily available from all retailers of pool supplies, some above ground swimming pools actually come with all necessary equipment.
The right swimming pool chemicals will also allow you to easily maintain clean, sanitary water and will also protect your swimmers from dangerous infections and illnesses. Proper care of above ground pools requires the use of a sanitizer such as chlorine or bromine as well as pool shock chemicals which help to adjust chemical levels and also help to eradicate dangerous microorganisms. Additional swimming pool chemicals that will help you with your pool maintenance include pH adjusters, total alkalinity adjusters and algaecides.
