In-Ground Pools vs. Above Ground Pools

When it comes to choosing the pool that is best for your home, many factors must be taken into account. The main two factors being space and budget. Once both are determined then it is time to choose between an in-ground pool or an above ground pool. So, what are the main differences other than the obvious in-ground and above ground? Let us explain.

In-Ground Pools

In-ground pools are permanent and can add value to your home especially in areas with warmer climates. The possibilities are endless from shapes to style and materials used. Most in-ground pools are made out of materials such as concrete, vinyl, or fiberglass. Whether you would like a rectangular, circular, or infinity pool, an in-ground pool is for you.

The initial investment of an in-ground pool is high along with the yearly maintenance. Electrical bills and water bills increase significantly due to running the filtration system and heater along with constantly refilling the water. Maintenance is a key factor in maintaining a Rising Sun Pool which includes chemicals, cleaning, and year-round preventative maintenance. We understand that building an in-ground pool can seem overwhelming, but we are here to guide you through the process from start to finish.

Above Ground Pools

Above ground pools are budget-friendly and can be installed quickly. Above ground pools can be permanently or temporarily installed. Rising Sun Pools recommends incorporating an outdoor deck to your above ground pool for entertaining, lounging, and additional safety. Decking also provides the feeling of having an in-ground pool for a fraction of the cost.

If you decide to move, you can take your above ground pool with you or it can be sold with a home. However, above ground pools do not add value to a home and actually require the same amount of maintenance as an in-ground pool. Rising Sun Pools offers above ground pools from one of the top names in the industry. There is a design and a size that will fit any budget.
