Now that you have made the decision to purchase a pool, the choice is whether it will be an above ground pool or an inground swimming pool. If you want a pool with a deep end for diving, the pool will need to be inground. If you’re more interested in playing games, like volleyball, you can choose either an inground or above ground swimming pool.


Deciding Between Above Ground & Inground Swimming Pools

Visit your local pool dealer’s showroom, or the Medallion Pools showroom to see all the options. Swimming pool experts can help you find a pool that fits your budget and yard conditions. There could be several options for installation both inground and above ground, so the choice is yours. If you have a slope in your yard, you can choose to install the swimming pool partially inground as well.

Investing in a Swimming Pool

We hear customers all the time share how much they want a pool, but are afraid it’s out of their budget. Don’t ever think you can’t afford a pool. Times have changed, and pool manufacturers are now offering pool products to every customer’s budget. If your preference is an above ground swimming pool, you will find many quality options to fit your needs.

If you prefer an inground pool, these can also be designed to fit your yard and your budget. Vinyl liner pools are the most affordable inground option. You get a much larger pool, with more features, when compared to a fiberglass or concrete with the same budget.
