Everything You Need to Know About Swimming Pools

With the heat being record-breaking on some days, finding ways to cool off can become a top priority. Although going to the beach is typically a summertime favorite, there is nothing better than being able to cool off right in your back yard. A new or used above ground swimming pool can be a great way to cool down in the summertime without breaking the bank.

What types of above ground pools are there?

There are two main types of above-ground pools:

  • Metal Frame - These types of swimming pools can be quite sturdy and can be quite easy to setup. Also, the metal support frame helps to prevent the sides of the pool from sagging and allowing water to escape.
  • Inflatable - If you are looking for cheap swimming pools, then an inflatable swimming pool is your best choice. Set up only requires that the pool be inflated and then filled with water.
How do I choose the right pool?

Before searching for pools for sale, you should first know the size of the area of where you want to place the pool. There are new and used swimming pools for sale that are oval, round, and rectangular. These pools also come in various heights and you can choose the features that you want according to your needs.

Do I have to use a liner for my pool?

It is necessary that you use a liner as these can help to extend the lifespan of your pool by protecting the walls and the floor. While this is not necessary for inflatable pools, liners are essential if you want to keep your metal frame pool protected.

Types of pool liners.

The main types of pool liners are unibead, overlap, and beaded.

  • Unibead - The unibead liner is one of the most versatile liners as it can be used as like a J-Hook or with the bead receiver liner.
  • Overlap - These liners are affordable and easy to install. Plastic coping strips hold the liner in place. These plastic pieces overlap from the inside to the outer edge of the pool helping to hold it in place.
  • Beaded - Beaded liners give you many style options, as these are available in many designs. These liners install easily by snapping into the bead receiver and are easy to install.
Does the pool come with a cover and a liner?

While some eBay swimming pools may come with a cover, you may have to purchase these items separately.
