A Photo Gallery of Above-Ground Pools

By

In the current economy, above-ground swimming pools are enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Why? Above-ground pools and inflatable or portable models always have been less expensive than in-ground pools, a point that is not lost on pool shoppers and buyers. Other selling points: above-ground pools are a breeze to install compared to building an in-ground pool, many can be disassembled at the end of swim season, and that portability makes them good choices for renters or those who would like to take their pool with them when they move.

For the past couple of summers the concept of a "staycation" - staying close to home because of rising gas prices and an economy that's gone from bad to worse - has been embraced by more and more people, who often don't have any choice but to spend summer vacation at home. An above-ground pool can make that groan-worthy staycation a bit sweeter.

Enjoy this photo gallery of above-ground pools, some of which do great impersonations of in-ground models.
