Above Ground Pool Buyer's Guide

The pool buyer’s guide below breaks down the important information, to give you a smart starting point to make the best decisions.

1
What size area do you have for the pool?

The size of your backyard is the biggest factor when choosing an above-ground pool.

Consider how much space a pool, plus a deck and landscaping will take up.

Plus, what kind of space do you need around the pool for other activities?

2
How active will your pool be?

Will it get used every day or only on occasion? Will all the neighborhood kids be there or only just a couple?

A pool that gets used daily needs a different regimen of chemicals than one that’s used weekly.

In addition, do any of the regular users have allergies or sensitive skin? Consider these when choosing water treatment and chemicals.

3
Who will do the pool installation?

Will you install the pool yourself? Or would you like the Zagers team to install it for you?

We can take care of everything, including preparing the ground, installing the pool walls and liner, hooking up the pumps and filters and filling it with water. All you need to do is jump in!

4
Would a round or oval shape work best there?

When you know how much space you have available, will a round pool fit best, or an oval?

5
How important is the design of the pool?

Would you like it to match the color of your house, or have a design that complements your yard?

There are many options for pool design, from soft colors and swirling lines to bright, eye-catching patterns.

Also consider the materials of construction. Do you like the look of traditional steel, or modern resin?

Will You Use it for Exercise? Fun? Relaxation? All of the above?

How you use the pool helps narrow down the options for shape and size.
