Turn your backyard into a great place for family and friends to cool off and unwind all summer long by adding an above-ground pool. Easier to install and maintain than an in-ground pool—and nicer on your budget—an above-ground pool can typically be set up and enjoyed on the same day, so you don’t have to wait months for a professional to install one in your yard. Plus, with so many options available, you can find one that is best suited for your outdoor space and needs. Many options can even be taken down and stored during the winter months, so you can enjoy more of your yard when it’s too cold to swim.
“Before beginning your search for an above-ground pool kit, it’s important for you to determine where your pool will be placed,” says Kim Tokarski, Category Director, Pool and Spa Lifestyle Products at Leslie’s, as this can help you decide what size and shape you need. “When choosing the location, also consider local zoning laws and how close the pool will be to water and electricity.”
To help you find the best above-ground pool for your backyard, we researched dozens of options, evaluating them for ease of assembly, durability, and value. We’ve also tested a few in our own backyards that we’ve added to this list.
