Look Ahead for Summer Fun!
Even though the Ohio weather is still frigid, it’s now time to plan for summer fun. A typical day of summer swimming starts with loading the towels, sunscreen, snacks, cooler, umbrella, blanket, beach chairs, and kids into the car to go to the pool.
Then there is always the admission fee when you get there and carrying all your gear in to claim your spot. When you finish your day of water fun and everyone is tired, you get everything and everyone back in the car to head home where you can unload it all. Why do all that when you could just open the door and head outside to your private pool in your own backyard? The key to that scenario, however, is planning for it now.
An above-ground pool can be installed in less space than you might realize. There are sizes to fit every yard and safety features to guard against accidents and unauthorized users. Splash Superpools® are constructed with a durable polyester cord reinforced liner and galvanized steel support structure.
This construction makes it durable enough to resist the super activities of both children and adults. With no nuts, bolts or tools needed for installation, it can typically be set up and ready for water in less than one hour on surfaces including grass, sand, asphalt, concrete, or dirt. For safety, the SplashFence®, made of rustproof PVC resin, can be installed on your soft-sided pool to limit access to the pool itself.
Radiant Pools® Metric Series pools are available in a variety of shapes beyond the common round and oval. The walls are constructed using an expanded polystyrene foam insulation core bonded between sheets of durable acrylic coated aluminum making this pool strong and durable to give you many years of fun. This model can be installed halfway into the ground or into a slope.
The R-10 insulated panels help maintain water temperature to extend your swimming season, and the inside step feature gives a slip-resistant area for lounging and a place for little swimmers and grandparents alike to enter with confidence. It lends that in-ground pool feeling to an above-ground pool.
The various shapes and sizes allow for compliance with the requirements and restrictions of many homeowners associations. When you add your own personal touches of color, steps, fencing, a deck or patio, and landscaping to complement the area, it becomes your own personal resort without ever having to leave home.
