Nothing beats an amazing home pool in the dead of the summer heat, but make sure you understand the Above Ground Pool Maintenance Cost before you take that leap.
Before installing a new above-ground swimming pool, be sure to see the most common costs of buying and maintaining a swimming pool.
Cost Of Above Ground Pools
Installing a ground level pool won’t require excavation, so you save cash in regard to below ground pools. Roughly, above-ground pools are a third of the price of an inground pool. There are many options so the median cost might be around $4,000 to purchase and professionally install. Contact us for an exact quote.
Costs of Pool Materials
Like anything, what it’s made out of matters. That is why we carry Trevi Pools, because of their durability and comparatively affordable price points. With above ground pools, durability and materials are directly related. Vinyl and fiberglass pool shells, which can be simply installed rather than crafted on site, are by nature of the materials less durable then concrete pools.
Costs of Pool Maintenance
Just like a car needs oil changes, tire rotations, and occasionally larger maintenance, so too does a swimming pool. Call us to find out more information on how much a maintenance project will cost on your pool. Here is a list of services we offer.
Maintenance Costs of Standard Pools
With a standard swimming pool you will maintain the water’s pH balance with chemicals. Sodium hypochlorite raises the pool’s pH, while granular acid will lower it. It’s important to test the water’s balance once a week. You should also provide additional treatment for your pool following a storm, intense heat or growing algae.
There are additional chemicals you must add to kill algae and bacteria. Chlorine is the most popular chemical. It comes in the form of liquid, tablets and a powdery substance. The tablets are often a better choice because they dissolve slowly over time and do not require much maintenance.
On average, expect maintenance to cost less than $200, but know that the costs will be heavily dependent on the size and quality of your pool.
Costs of Pool Covers
Every pool owner needs to have a pool cover. Mesh pool nets are the most affordable for an above ground swimming pool. The main function of this type of cover is to prevent leaves and debris from falling in and blocking the filtration system. Expect to pay anywhere from $40 to $200 for a mesh pool net cover.
Cost of Liner Replacement for Above Ground Pools
Despite its lower cost for installation, above ground pools may eventually need substantial repair. The biggest problem is a ripped liner, which will have to be replaced entirely. Call Paradise for more details on your project.
