Hi there! My husband and I are purchasing a home in a rural area and now have the option to put in an above or semi-unground saltwater pool.
We have had both a fiberglass (MO) and finite (TX) saltwater pool And thoroughly enjoyed them.
We are excited for the option to put in an above ground pool from a cost perspective, but I’m hoping to glean from your experience in finding the best type pool and solution for our situation…
Any recommendation or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
Kindest regards!

Hey Cindy and Welcome !!! Casey above is right that an all resin pool will last forever. I will add to that to consider the Aquasport style with no legs. They use 5 inch pieces that interlock and are much thicker than traditional above ground pools, allowing them to be partially buried. We inherited a 17 year old one when we moved and i *thought* I’d be able to tear it down with power tools no problems. It LAUGHED at me and I have a whole new respect for them. The parts in the mud forever were as clean as the day they were installed. It took a sawzall, a grinder, a sledge and a crowbar and not one ounce of it was easy. 47E35018-16BF-49B8-AF8B-7257AD6BD2EC.jpegB8E847B1-190B-4EB2-9312-EC8381DF9191.jpeg252A9445-3FAD-46D7-BF63-121B8A1453B1.jpeg

For fun i *tried* to punch holes through the wall with the crowbar. I marked it up a bit, but that was all I could do. AAAE041D-D37A-4A96-BFD6-B5987125155A.jpeg7593FE49-7250-4156-9842-B8A292D62C9B.jpeg
