If you are considering buying a pool, but don’t want to spend too much on an inground pool, you might want to check out semi-inground pools. They have recently opened a whole new market, making a big hit with economical buyers. Semi-inground pools have hit the market with the right price for those who are not quite able to get an inground pool, but do not want to settle for an above ground pool. They are available at prices that homeowners can afford, making them the new market niche.
It is not just the price that is making semi-inground pools the newest trend. They have other features that make them the talk of the town:
They Are Versatile
Semi-inground pools meet you halfway between inground and above ground pools. Being a hybrid, they can sit entirely above ground as well as halfway in the ground, or can be entirely buried. This versatility makes them flexibile enough to meet the needs of any homeowner.
They Are Easy to Install
Semi-inground pools can be installed in a matter of days and they are DIY-friendly. Installing them is not as labor intensive as digging an inground pool.
They Are Robust and Long-Lasting
They are generally built with 14-gauge galvanized steel and a 42 to 52 inch inground panel length, which makes semi-inground pools as robust and long-lasting as inground pools. This is one reason why people like semi-inground pools.
They Are Perfect for Decks
If you have a deck in your backyard and do not want to walk down to get into your pool, you can install a semi-inground pool at the level of your deck. You can always adjust the depth to which you want to sink the pool. This makes it perfect for decks.
They Are Easy on the Eyes
Semi-inground pools do not stick out like above ground pools that block the view in the yard. When they are partially sunk or entirely sunk, wall visibility is minimized. You can color coordinate the pool and your home for better visual aesthetics.
They Are Not Classified as Permanent Structures
Unlike inground pools, semi-inground pools are not classified as permanent structures so you are not subject to additional property taxes.
