Semi Inground Pools Installation
Semi inground pools are the nifty middle ground between above ground and inground pools. For sure, the lower profile of a semi inground pool does not obstruct the yard in the way an above ground pool does, and neither does cost much as an inground pool does. Interestingly, a semi inground pool can integrates into a yard through attractive landscaping or pool decks.
Considerations about Semi Inground Pools
While semi inground pools require the most of your creativity in terms of layout and placement, there are a lot more reasons – including how the overall design corresponds most yards and slopes – why installing a semi inground pool is worthy of a thought.
- The semi inground pool installation cost, along with the purchase and maintenance, falls roughly between the two other types of pools.
- The simplified installation eliminates the intensive labor of digging underground as well as the complicating factors.
- The materials, which do not require the quality to withstand pressures or earth shifting, are less expensive.
Still, the most interesting reason is that you can install a semi inground pool yourself, especially if you want to cut the installation cost of a semi inground pool. Pay attention to two important parts for the installation.
- The first is ground preparation. Make sure it is free from rocks, roots, and other protrusions because the vinyl is not so thick to resist sharp stones. Spray herbicides to the ground to slow down weed growth. Use your lawn roller in order to flat the ground and then lay the vinyl. Apply broad-spectrum insecticides to prevent termites and pests from snacking the pool liner.
- The second is decking. Add some kind of protective barrier, be it a fence or deck, around the newly installed pool. You do not want to risk children and pets to fall into and drown in the pool. Besides, the deck provides pool access and sunning platform for all semi inground pools.
