Above Ground Pool Buying Guide


You may be overwhelmed with options if you want to add an above ground pool to your backyard. It's challenging to know where to start and how to decide the right pool for your house. Southern Sky Pools can help you decide which above ground pool is right for your Lakeland house. We've put together a simple buying guide of the top things to keep in mind when shopping for a pool so you can make the right decision. If you have any trouble, our team is always here to help. Here are a few tips for finding the right pool for your home:

  • Check your local regulations: The first thing you want to do is check your local regulations to make sure you can install an above ground pool on your property. In most cases, you might need a permit and must follow specific rules about pool placement.

  • Consider Size & Shape: If you have a small backyard, you'll want to make sure you pick the right size and shape of pool for the area, but still leave room around it. Our above ground pools come in a variety of sizes and shapes, including both round and oval. Whatever you're looking for, we've got it.

  • Ensure Quality: Before you install a pool at your house, make sure it's a quality piece that will last. All our pools are made in the U.S.A. and will keep your family entertained for years. In addition, we can take care of the maintenance, so your pool lasts longer.


Choosing the Best Location in Lakeland FL for Your Above Ground Pool

Above ground pools give you all the perks of a private swimming pool without the work and prep involved with inground pools. When it comes to choosing the right location for an above-ground pool, there are several things to consider.

  • Above-ground pools need stable ground to support their weight. It's better to dig into a slope than add soil to provide a level base if you're installing your pool on a slope.

  • When it rains, a pool can change how water drains from your yard. Your pool installer can help you evaluate your property's drainage system so that water can run off after you install your pool.

  • To add a pool deck, you'll need to think about the size of the deck and how you'd like to access it. Decks around pools are convenient when they fit right against your home, but this isn't your only choice.


Caring for Your Above Ground Pool


Above ground pools don't require much maintenance. You can get help from your swimming pool company by having them provide maintenance services or by getting personalized tips if you'd like to take care of it yourself.

  • Periodically test your water for alkalinity, pH, and hardness. The water's comfort and resistance to bacteria can be improved with chemical adjustments.

  • Filters keep particulates out of swimming pools. Occasionally, you might need to backwash or replace the filter cartridge -- your pool service can do that for you.

  • A few minutes spent vacuuming your pool will keep it looking clean and beautiful for years to come.
