Above ground, pools may not come to your mind when you consider getting a new pool installed. However, they can work well on sloped properties with many different heights.

One difference from an inground pool is that you will have to decide how you want the exposed edges to look. You could choose to add tiles or cladding for a stylish finish.

The Solution for Sloped Properties

Do you have a sloped property? It can be tough to picture how you could engineer a pool that would fit in with this, as you can’t have a sloped pool.

Above ground, pools are the perfect solution. They are also referred to as an out of the ground pool because above ground suggests that they lie above your property line on all sides. We prefer to match up the pool height to your deck or backyard, and the other edges may be above ground because of the slope on your property.

An above-ground pool can be installed in any size you like. This could range from a courtyard pool to a lap pool.

Foundations

If you’re planning on getting a concrete above ground pool, these need a lot of support. To be installed safely, it must be supported by at least 300-500mm of natural solid ground. The engineer’s design and soil report will ensure this so that you know your pool is built on safe ground.

Depending on how high your pool will rise above the ground, extra foundational support may also be needed. We can advise you on these requirements once we have inspected the area you would like the pool to be built on. Generally, the pool might need more support if any side is more than 1.5 metres above the ground.

Costs

Due to the different engineering requirements, above ground pools are more costly than traditional styles. They require a lot of extra work to ensure that they are structurally sound. However, if you have a sloped section, you won’t have many other pool options available.

It’s not worth compromising on structural integrity to save money. Let us design your above ground pool to the highest technical requirements. This way, you can be certain that you have a durable and structurally sound pool that will last for many years.
