The first thing that will determine the type of pool you will install is, not surprisingly, your budget. However, other, more technical elements can influence your choice. Above ground, inground or natural pool, follow our “pool guide”.
New house with a swimming pool
Above-ground swimming pool: ideal for small budgets
- The above ground pool and the ideal solution to meet your desire for a pool despite a limited budget. There are different types of above-ground pools: tubular, freestanding, above-ground kit (wooden, metal and intex). You need to know about the types of inground pool surfaces now.
Benefits of the above ground pool
The main advantage of an above ground pool is of course its price. Freestanding pools are the least expensive (from 300 to 2,000 € on average). For a rigid above-ground pool, count a larger budget which varies from € 1,500 to € 15,000 depending on the shape and material chosen. The above-ground swimming pool can be installed in small areas and can adapt to the roughness of your land. It is also easy and quick to assemble (on average a weekend is enough to install it) and therefore does not require the use of a professional. These are easy-to-assemble pools. The best suction pool cleaner is one that leaves your clean spotless.
Issues of an above ground pool
Although its installation is easier than an inground pool, an above-ground pool requires some DIY knowledge and the help of 2 to 3 additional people. Before you start, know that it is better to dismantle and store the pool in winter.
What you need to know before installing an above ground pool
Position the above ground pool so that it enjoys the sun as long as possible during the day. Avoid windy places which will cool and contribute to dirtying your pool.
Respect for distances: the law requires a distance of at least 3 meters between the limits of your garden and those of the swimming pool
Pool in buried or semi-buried kit: affordable and more solid
The in-ground or semi-in-ground kit pool is the alternative to the major work involved in a concrete pool.
It exists in all forms and can be built with different materials. This is why the price range is rather wide. Its price can vary between € 4,000 and € 20,000 .
Advantages of the kit pool
The construction of a swimming pool in buried or semi-buried kit does not necessarily require the use of a professional. However, you must be a confirmed handyman to carry out certain stages of construction which are not within the reach of novices. The kit is complete and provides you with all the elements necessary for the proper functioning of your pool (maintenance products, piping and filtration system, etc.) This type of pool has the same lifespan as a concrete pool, but at a much lower cost.
