There’s a lot to be said for how much fun a pool adds to your summer. Spending time with friends around the pool at sunset, watching your kids have a blast on long, hot summer days, kicking back poolside with a good book, favourite drink in hand, on a lazy Saturday…a pool really does make summer better.
Above ground pools are becoming increasingly popular. They offer a refreshing way to cool off from the heat as well as a focal point around which to create your own backyard paradise. Year after year, more and more above ground options become available for those looking to enjoy summertime to the max.
Check out these above ground pool trends to help you decide which pool is right for you.
Above ground pools that suit your style
Above ground pools are now available in more and more contemporary colour choices to match the styles of new homes. Looking for a zen-like atmosphere? Opt for the wooden above ground pool, perfect for adding a more natural touch to your decor!
Pool liner patterns are also a way to enhance your space. For a more understated vibe, go with plain, dark, grey or beige shades. Of course, mosaic patterns and shades of blue are always a winner and offer a personalized look!
A space that invites you to dive right in
Create a space that is as functional as it is beautiful; a place to relax or to let loose and entertain. Above ground pool patios and decks come in all shapes and sizes to invite fun and relaxation. Family and friends can lounge poolside as they drink in the summer sun or jump right in to cool off. Add in some extras, such as an outdoor kitchen, shrubs, sunshade, deco accessories…it will be like a private resort, no passport required!
In addition, as pool fencing has recently become mandatory, many people are turning to glass panels. Wooden fences are also a popular choice. They provide a natural and exotic touch.
Small above ground pools are making big waves
While large above ground pools are as popular as ever, more and more people are turning to small above ground pools. Having a small backyard no longer means that you can’t have a pool: the 12-foot above ground pool offers a perfect small-space summertime solution.
Do you have a large backyard or is your place where everyone hangs out? Choose an above ground pool of 18 feet or more. This way, you’ll have loads of room for everyone to jump right in!
Say yes to energy-efficient, eco-friendly options
Now, more than ever, cutting down on energy costs and chemicals is on everyone’s mind. Thankfully, above ground pool equipment allows you to reduce your energy bill while limiting the use of chemicals.
Two-speed or programmable pumps offer a cost-effective way to reduce your energy consumption. Enjoy summer to the fullest with pool water that is always at the right temperature! With a water heater, you can start swimming sooner in the season and stay swimming longer as the summer winds to a close. The new Inverter technology used in the above-ground pool heat pump also helps to maximise energy efficiency.
