above-ground pools can require fewer chemicals to stay clean

There are a few things that polarize homeowners, and one of them is whether or not to have a pool in the yard. There are those of us who love swimming pools and the ability to keep cool in the summer while there are others of us who dread the maintenance and are nervous about the risks associated with owning a pool. Above-ground pools are a great compromise between these two options because some models are able to be disassembled or removed should you need to and the safety of above-ground pools can be greater than in-ground pools. If you currently have an above-ground pool or are thinking of getting one and want it safe as possible, there are a few ways that you can increase the safety of above-ground pools.

Increasing the safety of above-ground pools, like other types of pools, is all about prevention. Because you can’t slip and fall upwards into an above-ground pool, many people enjoy that safety aspect, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be improved upon. By building decking around the perimeter of your above-ground pools, you are also able to add safety features like fencing, locks, and self-closing gates. This makes it much, much harder for children or pets to enter swimming pools without permission.

Because above-ground pools can require fewer chemicals to stay clean, you will have less concern about chemical and water cleanliness issues as well.
