Did you know that the average American moves at least once every seven to ten years? If that’s the case and you want a swimming pool, you may not want to make the investment in an inground swimming pool at every home you move into. If you want a swimming pool without having to leave it behind if and when you move, you should choose an above ground model.
Above ground pools in Champaign, Illinois are popular choices for myriad reasons and they include:
- They are more cost effective than an inground model and if you want a pool but don’t have a big budget, an above ground model may be ideal.
- They can be portable. If you move, chances are you can work with a pool contractor who can help move your pool with you.
- They are convenient and cost effective and can be installed in a weekend.
The decision of becoming a swimming pool owner is not one to be taken lightly and because of that you need to fully consider your lifestyle your budget and any other factors that may lead you to not remaining in your current home for decades. Consider that an inground swimming pool is a large budget item that you and your family will enjoy countless hours in together, but if you move, you can’t take it with you.
An inground swimming pool is the ideal choice for many homeowners, but just might not be right for you, right at this time. Again, convenience is a factor when choosing an above ground swimming pool. Cost is another. The ability to install an above ground swimming pool and still have backyard space available is another factor to consider. You could tuck an above ground pool into a corner of the yard and it could be a secluded swimming grotto for you and your family to enjoy and you will still be able to have enough yard space for you and your children and family to spend time together in the out of doors.
If you’re not completely convinced that a swimming pool will get enough use to warrant its installation you may want to go with the lower cost option of an above ground pool. Also, if you have a growing, or shrinking family (when kids grow up and go off to college) the above ground pool model may be more ideally suited to the family dynamics.
Talk with your pool builder and determine whether an above ground pool is what suits your family best.
