An Above Ground Pool: The Win-Win for Families with Small Children

An adult swimmer helps a small child wearing floatation gear into an above ground pool.

For many families, having a swimming pool in the backyard would be a dream come true — not just for the little ones, but for Mom and Dad as well. But for families with small children, a pool can seem like a safety concern. To those families, we ask, “How much have you thought about getting an above ground pool?”

Aha! An above ground pool lets you enjoy the fun of having a pool while protecting the safety of your little ones. So if you want to put swim parties on the calendar this summer but worry less about small children falling in, we at Goodall Pools & Spas have some insight to share with you here.

Not Your Old-School Above Ground Pool

So often when people fantasize about pools, they gravitate toward inground pools and leave above ground pools in the filing cabinet marked “Things That Are Outdated.” At Goodall, we have a very different outlook on above ground pools.

Nowadays, an above ground pool can score just as high in stylishness and strength as it can in risk management. Additionally, it does rather well in the functionality and maintenance departments. Here are some of the reasons why we think above ground pools are a great fit for families with small children.

1. Safety First

One of the most significant benefits of an above ground pool is that it offers increased safety. Above ground pools are elevated off the ground, making it more difficult for small children to accidentally fall in. Additionally, many above ground pools come with safety features such as non-slip surfaces and ladders with safety barriers, providing even more peace of mind for parents.

2. Easy to Install

Another great advantage of above ground pools is that they’re relatively quick and easy to install. An above ground pool can be installed in a matter of days. This makes them an ideal option for families who want to enjoy a pool in their backyard without having to wait through a custom-build process. 

Furthermore, above ground pools are also comparatively less expensive to install. This makes them an economical option for families who want to have a pool but want to remain agile with their budget.

3. Simple Maintenance

Above ground pools are also much easier to maintain. For example, they typically require less cleaning and upkeep because they elevate the water surface off of the ground. That means fewer bugs crawling in and less dirt being windblown into the water. 

Furthermore, above ground pools are typically smaller than inground pools. Smaller size means less water and, thus, less time and effort needed for maintenance.

4. Above Ground Pool Versatility

Above ground pools are also highly versatile and have customizable elements to suit your family’s needs. For example, you can choose from a range of above ground pool shapes such as round, oval, or rectangle. Also, you can choose from a variety of patterns for your liner. This versatility allows you to create a pool that fits seamlessly into your backyard.

5. Fun for the Whole Family

Of course, the primary benefit of having a pool in your backyard is that it provides a fun and engaging activity for the whole family. Whether you’re looking to cool off on a hot summer day or exercise and improve your swimming skills, an above ground pool is a great option. 

Also, because above ground pools are relatively easy to install and maintain, you’ll have more time and energy to spend actually enjoying the pool.
