Getting an Above Ground Swimming Pool Installed

If you're looking to add any kind of pool or hot tub spa to your property, there are permits you will have to get before anything can be built or installed. Different cities and towns have varying requirements. Poolside will point you in the right direction and assist in any way we can to help you get the needed permits and fulfill safety regulations. After permission has been granted, the installation can begin.

Poolside will typically receive your swimming pool from our supplier within a few days of you placing your order. While Poolside does not install above ground pools, we will recommend a reliable installer in our area. The earlier in the year you get in touch with an installer, the quicker you will be able to enjoy your new pool.

Above Ground Pool Steps for Installation

  1. After leveling the area where the pool will sit, the pool walls are put up and the liner is set into place. 
  2. Water will then be delivered to your house by a local water delivery company. You may choose to have the pool completely filled by water trucks, or you can top off the remainder of your pool with water from your hose. 
  3. No matter which route you take, Poolside recommends bringing us a water sample for a free water analysis. We will advise you on how to get your pool water safe and ready for use. Once you have treated the water, your new above ground swimming pool will be ready to use. 

Questions to Ask When Buying an Above Ground Swimming Pool

Tips for Finding the Right Pool for Your Wisconsin Home

Question to ask when buying an above ground swimming

Before buying an above ground swimming pool, ask yourself the following questions to figure out if it’s the right decision:

Q: Where should I put my above ground swimming pool?

The placement of your above ground swimming pool is incredibly important. For safety, the pool should be two or more feet away from any trees or buildings on your property. This can narrow down the possible locations for your new pool. If you are unsure of the best placement, we'll be happy to help you determine the ideal spot. 

Since above ground pools are placed directly on the ground, the area must be clear of all debris to avoid damaging the bottom of the pool. The grass beneath a pool will stop growing, so potential movement of the pool in the future will result in a bare patch.

Q: Does my yard need to be level?

Since the pool will be placed on the ground, your yard has to be as level as possible. If placed on an uneven surface, the structural integrity of the pool can fail. This can cause anything from leaks to the pool collapsing.

If your yard consists of sand or soft soil, you will have to take extra precautions to prevent the pool from settling at an angle. Poolside’s team will help you through the process to prevent your pool from sinking or tilting.

Q: What size and shape pool should I get?

One of the benefits of above ground pools is the variety of sizes. Primarily available in oval or round shapes, the pools can have varying widths to create more room for swimming and playing. Poolside’s collection ranges from 15’x30’ to 18’x33’, which is large enough to comfortably swim laps.

Above ground pools do not have shallow or deep ends the way in-ground pools do. Consider a shallower pool if you have small children.

Q: How much of the year can I use my pool?

One of the downsides of having a pool in Wisconsin is being unable to use it when the weather turns cold. In a good year, you can use an above ground pool from late May through mid-October.

Q: Should I get an above ground pool deck?

Many above ground pool owners add custom pool decks to their yard. This "poolscaping" makes getting in and out of the pool much easier and also hides the sides of the pool from view. While a deck will improve the appearance of your yard, it will most likely leave you unable to move your pool in the future without having to dismantle the deck as well.

Q: What if I can’t afford certain expenses for my new pool?

Make sure you know what you can afford before starting your pool project. Leveling out the ground and adding the water are all expenses to take into account. Poolside Info will help you plan for a budget-friendly pool for your Waukesha area home.

Q: Does my pool need additional features?

Once your pool is installed and full of water, it’s time to enjoy! Ask our staff about the various options available for improving your above ground pool. We have everything from heaters to games to ensure you get the most out of your home pool.

Adding an Above Ground Pool Deck to Your Wisconsin Home

Improve the Appearance of Your Pool and Yard

Add an above ground pool deck to your Waukesha home

Above ground swimming pools are popular in Wisconsin for their affordability and practicality. Elevated, wraparound decks are a great way to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your pool while also making it easier to get in and out of the pool.

Easier Access for Family and Friends

Using a ladder to get in and out can be tricky for young kids, older family members, or those with limited mobility. Decks can be built with either a stairway or ramp to make pool access easier for the entire family. Many of these decks include gates to keep out kids and pets, making the pool area safer.

Some above ground pools with wrap around decks can benefit from an automatic cover installation for faster setup. Depending on what you want, a deck may adjoin with only one side of a pool or wrap all the way around. If the deck does not go all the way around, a second ladder can be added along the opposite side for entering and exiting the pool.

Enhancing Your Home

If you have an existing back patio or deck, creating a pathway between the two makes reaching your pool easier than ever. An elevated deck can be used even when the pool is closed. Place some chairs or towels down to catch some sun or set up an outdoor dining area for a relaxing meal. Prop up umbrellas to stay safe from the sun while supervising your kids from a high vantage point.

A deck will also provide convenient storage for pool supplies. Anything from toys to a pool skimmer can be tucked underneath the deck, freeing up garage and shed space. You no longer have to worry about where to put the inflatable tubes or cleaning chemicals.

Wraparound pool decks also add visual appeal to your yard. If you’re really determined to hide the sides of your pool, use small shrubs and flower bushes for a more natural look. Decorative siding can also hide the rest of the pool walls from view.
