If you want to add a pool to your yard but you don’t have a lot of space a small above-ground pool is a great choice. With small above ground pools, pool owners are able to enjoy the water, while still having room to keep the rest of your garden. You most likely have a lot of questions about above ground pool prices, the process, and what’s available. We’ll answer everything for you, and you can use this information to decide if an above-ground pool in Canberra is in your immediate future.
An above-ground pool is exactly what the name suggests. Instead of being mounted in the earth, these pools sit above your yard’s ground level. They come in a huge range of sizes and shapes, and they work wonderfully if you have a smaller backyard or uneven terrain that would make installing an in-ground pool challenging. You can choose from concrete, fibreglass, rubber or plastic shells, and you can customise your order to suit your style.
Understanding What Makes Small Above Ground Pools so Popular
For many people, above-ground pools give them a great alternative to the more traditional in-ground pools because they have a smaller backyard, rough terrain or a difficult access point. These things shouldn’t stop you from having a pool, and this is why above-ground plunge pools are so popular.
Small above-ground pools work very well in many different types of terrain, from sloping and uneven ground right through to rocky areas, and they fit wonderfully in smaller gardens that don’t have enough space for a larger in-ground pool. They also offer a high degree of versatility, and are available in a huge range of sizes and shapes. You can choose from either fibreglass or concrete structures.
You can decide heat your above ground pool in NSW or ACT. This means you can enjoy it all year round. Another available option is to transform your above-ground plunge pool into a spa where you can go to unwind, relax, and soothe any aches and pains you may have.
It’s possible to add a host of safety features like locked gates and fencing around these pools to keep your kids and pets safe when no one is supervising. They also feature higher entry points to the water than those of traditional, and this adds to the safety factor. However, you should always supervise your children when they are near the pool. These pools can be designed in an eco-friendly way that is cheap to maintain in the long term.
How Maxi Rib Technology Makes Small Above-ground Pools a Reality
Of course, above-ground pools need to be adequately supported. This is where Maxi Rib technology comes in. Maxi Ribs are unique structures that surround your pool’s shell, offering support while contouring to fit your space. They work to anchor the entire pool structure in place, and they allow pools to be built on uneven or sloping terrain.
Maxi Rib technology is also extremely durable. It can easily withstand different weather conditions, along with the typical wear and tear of general usage, without breaking down. This means that your pool can last for years, even when you are using it regularly. The nice thing about this technology is that it gives you the ability to have a pool on almost any type of site you can imagine, and this allows people in NSW and ACT to have the pool of their dreams without breaking their budget or destroying their yards.
Popular Types of Small Above Ground Pools in Canberra
Many people are surprised when they realise that there are so many different types of above-ground pools available. You may think that there are strict restrictions on what kind of pool you can and can’t install, but this simply isn’t the case. Below are a few of the most popular models that will fit perfectly in your yard and give you an area to go and relax after a long and stressful day.
- Small Fibreglass Pools – First up is the small fibreglass pool from Capital Country Pools. There are nine different options available in varying sizes and shapes. Fibreglass pools come pre-formed and ready to set up, so there are some restrictions in terms of the shape. However, the Maxi Rib technology allows them to anchor into almost any yard. They’re slightly easier to care for than other pool choices, and the fibreglass construction is naturally resistant to bacteria and algae growth. This is the perfect small above-ground pool for a small family.
- Sapphire Swim Spas – A swim spa by Sapphire is an excellent way to turn your backyard into an oasis, and you can use it to unwind and relax after a trying day. You can choose from a two to eight person spa, and they come in several sizes and shapes. There are also party-style spas that can fit 10 people, or even more. You’ll be able to sit back and let the jets relax your muscles and soothe away any aches or pains you have, and the pool itself will sit securely above the ground.
- Little Pools – Little Pools feature a non-corrosive composite exoskeleton that gives the structure enough support to withstand heavy use while remaining above the ground level. These pools are available in a number of models and styles that make it fun and easy to find a small above-ground swimming pool to suit your space. You can choose from lap pools, plunge pools and more in a large range of colours that allow you to personalise your choice to suit your own style and needs.
- Plunge Pools – Finally, we have a range of plunge pools. Plunge pools feature a slightly deeper design with a smaller profile that allows you to swim and soak without the pool itself taking up too much room in your yard. Add swim jets to turn it into a pool and spa combo, and select from one of 10 designs, each of which comes equipped with varying features and depths.
Average Above-ground Pool Prices
The prices for installing a small above-ground pool in Canberra, or in the surrounding suburbs, can fluctuate depending on a large range of factors. For example, your desired pool size will greatly influence the price. How difficult or easy it is for the pool installers to access your backyard is another factor. The terrain at your pool’s intended site may also play a role, but the invention of Maxi Rib technology helps you to keep this portion of the cost relatively low.
Your ground conditions and the quality of your pool shell all count, as does the operating system you prefer and any extras you want to add. If you need a pool pump or a filtration system, this will add another expense. Installing the pool is just part of the total life-time cost of the pool too, because you also need to take long term maintenance into account.
