A great choice for sloped or uneven backyards
Every pool season, we have homeowners who come in to discuss potential options for their sloping backyards. “Can we put a pool in a yard like ours?” they ask. The answer is yes—by installing a semi -inground pool. This blog article will explain more about them—and their benefits.
A semi- inground pool is an affordable alternative to a traditional inground pool and it is easier to install. It also is a good choice if you have strict homeowner association rules about height; and it features the same round or oval shape options that an above ground pool does. Semi- inground pools are a good choice for people who want their pool to blend more harmoniously with their landscape than a typical above ground pool. As well as for those can’t afford (or just don’t want to deal with) full inground installation. This is a great way to add fun to your life and create your own backyard getaway.
The semi- inground requires less digging (and messing around with utility lines, tree roots and the like), fewer of the expensive materials required to withstand the ground’s freeze/thaw cycles of our climate than an inground requires, and the simpler install equals less expense all around. In addition, sinking a semi- inground pool several feet below the ground often makes it easier to manage pipes and pumps.
Many people build decking around their semi- inground pool, which makes a beautiful addition to their backyards. The lower profile doesn’t block your views and it blends in well with your backyard.
As an added bonus, a semi- inground pool is cleaner than a full inground because it is not as vulnerable to insects and debris being blow in since it has an edge that is above ground. The walls are composite so there is no weld or corrosion and the lining stays clean and sanitary.
At Pettis Pools & Patio, we carry the Foxx Ultimate Pool that can be installed aboveground, partially in-ground, or completely in-ground to fit any yard or slope. The 14 gauge in-ground quality steel gives the pool unmatched strength and durability to last a lifetime.
