Above-ground pools have often been the symbol of attainable pool ownership for the working or lower middle class. The Heck family on the sitcom The Middle
are an "above-ground pool family," while the clan on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo
was thrilled when their above-ground model was delivered to their Georgia yard. For starters, one of the reasons above-ground pools have become more appealing in a lean economy is their lower price tags. Other reasons to go the way of an above-ground pool
- Lets homeowners get their pool-feet wet in a less costly, more portable type of swimming pool.
- That portability allows you to take the pool with you, should you move.
- Easier to work with certain types of land, including rocky areas.
- A deck can be added later to an above-ground pool, and you'll still come out cheaper than an in-ground model.
