Why Upgrading To An In-Ground Pool Is Almost Always Worth It

Whether you have had an aboveground pool for most of your life or never had a pool at all, there is no doubt that an in-ground pool construction is an upgrade on all other forms of pool you can have. There are many reasons why an in-ground pool makes so much more sense for a home than an aboveground pool. If you have the extra money required for it, it will be well worth your time and effort to make sure it is installed. Here are a few of the many benefits why upgrading to an in-ground pool is almost always worth it.

Add Genuine Value

Because many aboveground pools are seen as temporary or easily dismantled, the value they add to your property is minute, if any. In fact, some potential investors or future buyers would see an aboveground pool as a hassle and negative because they would want to remove it and install the real deal. In-ground pool construction is seen as much more permanent and therefore a safer investment, which translates to a higher value. That means that when you put money into your in-ground pool, you will always get it back (and then some) if you decide to sell later on.

Less Danger Of Leaking

In-ground pools are much better at surviving potential hazards that pools can face. From punctures to issues with the filters and so on, an in-ground pool is built to last and can survive the elements and rough usage far better than your aboveground pool can. The simple fact is that the earth around your in-ground pool acts as reinforcing support, whereas an aboveground pool constantly has the pressure of those thousands of gallons of water wanting to escape. 

More Features

Another great reason why you should choose an in-ground pool is that it can be customized to your heart's content. From adding in decorative features like fountains and islands or interesting designs and rivers to the more child-friendly additions like slides and diving platforms, an in-ground pool is far better to customize. Aboveground pools can be customized to an extent, but the planning is much more difficult and can be more expensive because of the added structural elements causing stress on the sides of the pool. If you are planning a truly unique pool, it should be an in-ground construction.
