Getting a swimming pool for your backyard is exciting. And it also means that you want to know which type of pool will be the best option for your family. There are many types of pools available. Perhaps you are strongly considering an above-ground pool. So just how much do above-ground pools cost and how long do they last?
Goodall Pools has been helping the people of Pennsylvania with their swimming pool needs for close to six decades, in the Susquehanna Valley and beyond. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is here to help you as you learn all of the details you want to know about an above-ground pool.
Above-Ground Pool Costs to Consider
First, let’s talk about the costs of an above-ground pool. The initial investment for an above-ground pool is considerably lower than the cost of in-ground fiberglass or vinyl liner pools. This fact alone often helps families make the decision to get an above-ground pool. The above-ground pool cost will be determined by a few factors.
Obviously the brand of pool will have an impact on the price, as each company builds their swimming pools a little differently. The size and shape of the pool can alter the total cost a little bit as well. At Goodall Pools, we have amazing above-ground pool options from Radiant® Pools. The pools come in DIY kits that are equipped with mostly everything that you will need to successfully get your pool up and running with very little hassle.
These high-end swimming pools last much longer than typical above-ground pools. Currently, in 2022, our Radiant kits are about $12,000. You get the pool walls, a vinyl liner, a pump and filter, a ladder, start-up chemicals, and even some vacuum supplies with a kit purchase.
Once your pool is in use, you will need to remember to figure the costs of upkeep and running the pool into your monthly budget as well. Goodall Pools has all of the pool maintenance items that swim season will require. From Bioguard® pool chemicals to the pool accessories you can’t live without, we’ve got what you need.
Extent of Enjoyment to Expect
Second, let’s look at how long you can expect to enjoy an above-ground pool. Some above-ground pools are not built to last and need to be replaced within an average of 7-15 years. However, when you purchase a quality above-ground pool, the lifespan increases greatly.
In fact, Radiant Pools guarantee their above-ground pools for life because they have complete confidence in their manufacturing. Here is the lifetime warranty information for Radiant Pools to give you the peace of mind that your investment will be completely worth it.

Having an above-ground pool from Radiant means having a safe swimming pool that is guaranteed to last for generations to come.
