We are on our 3rd season and are thinking of upgrading from our Intex to another type of permanent pool. We are considering an above ground like a Sharkline but also considering a brand of pool that is an above ground that can be partially buried or fully buried. What are the pro's and con's of the two? We would like a full inground but I'm not sure if I can justify the cost for swimming 5 months of the year. I know that the semi or a buried inground is cheaper but are there any pro's and con's other than the cost?
