Tips to install above-ground pools

Currently, many models of pools exist in the market, these vary according to the material with which they are made, the height or depth they possess and even the accessories with which they are equipped. The above-ground pools require a much simpler installation process than the conventional ones, there are some composed of tubes or pieces that can be assembled and other inflatable ones, however, there is a series of advices that are recommended to follow at the time of doing it.

The first step that must be carried out before performing this process is the verification of the land. The ground must be level, that is to say, it must not have any type of undulations since this would generate more depth in some areas of the pool and may even alter its structure. In addition, check that there are no elements such as rocks or tree roots that can damage the lower part of the structure. Also, it must be verified if the soil is strong enough to support the weight generated by the pool full of water, since a weak ground may subside and this would be harmful.

Location is another factor that must be given due attention. While this type of pool has the advantage of being able to be installed in spaces much smaller than those required by conventional pools, it must be taken into account that they are designed for specific types of environments. It is best to place them in sunny areas such as gardens or terraces. It is not advisable to install them in enclosed and small spaces such as balconies since they are generally built for wide and open spaces.

It is also recommended to install the pool near an electrical outlet. This is due to the fact that, since they are not large installations with included cleaning systems, we must purchase accessories that support the maintenance work, especially in large pools. To avoid emptying the pool every time the water is dirty, it is recommended to use small scrubbers, pool cleaners and filters or chlorinators that can be easily connected to the electrical network and can be used in pools without problems.

The fact that the pool is located near a water intake is another point of great importance as this will allow it to be filled much more quickly and easily. It must be remembered that they do not have a filling and emptying system like the conventional ones, so this process must be carried out manually. In the market, there are several types of hoses that can be very helpful when directing water to the pool, but the closer the water connection is; the easier it will be to fill.

If you plan to install the pool in the garden, be careful with the presence of trees and place it away from them as they can release leaves or some other type of waste that would soil the water. There are also covers that are placed on the pool to prevent it from getting some kind of dirty while it is not in use but it is not recommended to have the pool covered for a long time as this can generate the accumulation of bacteria.
