An above-ground swimming pool seems like a great idea, but where do you go to learn more about the different manufacturers?
The following is a frequently updated list of above-ground pool manufacturers. While above ground pools have seen a rise in popularity since the Great Recession, some manufacturers have had to close their doors because of the economy. If you already own an above-ground pool and have had difficulty tracking down the company or its website, it may have joined forces with or been acquired by another company. If you need help contacting a manufacturer, post a message in the Pool & Patio Forum.
