Semi-in ground pools—the best of both worlds

Semi-in ground pools—the best of both worlds

So how is it possible that the semi-in ground pool, an aboveground/in ground hybrid, has remained virtually unheard of? One answer is that until recently semi-in ground swimming pools, sometimes referred to as on-ground pools or deck pools, have represented a niche market that simply hasn’t garnered enough attention among the general pool buying public. But the main reason semi-in ground swimming pools have escaped notice is that they were slow to catch on with pool dealers who remained focused on selling traditional aboveground pool kits.
The rise of the semi-in ground market
Recently, all that has changed and semi-in ground swimming pools have become
One of the most popular and best selling pool models due to their versatility, quality and ease of installation. Semi-in ground pools are installed partially aboveground and partially underground and can be installed in a matter of days and are also DIY-friendly. These swimming pools appeal to customers who like the lower cost of aboveground pools but prefer the aesthetics of in ground pools.
Installing a semi-in ground swimming pool
Featuring similar construction and materials to in ground pools, semi-in ground swimming pools typically utilize aluminum or galvanized steel, weld-free panels that are not concreted solid into the ground. The pool wall panels are virtually corrosion-proof and are structurally as strong as in ground pools. In addition, these pools are extremely adaptable. They can be installed in back yards of nearly any shape, size or terrain—yes, they can even be built on a slope. However, the more difficult the installation the more important that an experienced pool installer assist in the work.
