And like most everyone else you simply want a quality pool that’s going to last and not be a hassle to maintain. You don’t want to get ripped off and you don’t want to buy junk either. So below is our recommendations on shopping for an above ground pool. I’ll give you the short and sweet version of what to buy, where to buy it and why it’s good. Thanks again for taking the time to read this page. Please scroll down to view entire page.

What To Buy

Like anything else, some pools are better than others. Basically when shopping for a new above ground pool it breaks down into three main pool components to consider, the pool, liner and equipment. All should all be made in the USA end of story. Why? Because American made pool products are better quality than the imports and you can always get replacement parts for name brand American products anywhere. And when I say American made pool I’m referring to the typical American made hard-wall or steel wall above ground pools. These tend to last an average of 15-20 years in Florida. The imported hard-wall pools last about 5-8 years while soft side and blow up pools tend to last only 1-2 years.

If you are shopping for pools under $1000.00, I suggest waiting until you have a larger budget to spend. Pools in this price range can often be more trouble than you bargain for. Soft sided pools from Walmart, Target and other big box stores include models from Intex, Coleman, Ultra Frame and others. These pools usually only last about 1-2 years and most people are so disappointed in there pool they shop for a different one the very next swim season. Aside from the fact they’re made from inferior materials, the pump and filter systems arn’t strong enough to circulate the pool water properly or run a vacuum for cleaning. And as you know, algae tends to grow very rapidly in warm water, making these pools very aggravating to operate and maintain in the extreme Florida heat.

Where To Buy

You can shop anywhere you feel comfortable or take my recommendation, Why? Local company with many years of dealing specifically with above ground pools. A+ BBB rating, knowledgeable, friendly, prices are good, offer the best products and they answer their phone. I chose two pool models from them as our best picks based on brand, features, accessories, price and company support. These are both are sharp looking pools and fairly easy to assemble when compared to other models. You can view full details of each pool along with specs, brochures, manuals etc. on their very informative website. I have sent many customers there over the years and honestly I don’t know what more you could ask for. This is where I would buy, but if you know somewhere better than shop there.

And The Winner Is…

Best Above Ground Pool

Best Above Ground Pool Kit For Florida Backyards

Caspian – The Best Above Ground Pool

Great top of the line pool model and thee best pool to buy. Resin hybrid construction and tough as nails. Resin is a high grade polymer material that lasts a long time and weathers very nicely. Because resin bounces back from impact, doesn’t dent or get hot to the touch it’s a great material for pools. Resin also can’t rust or corrode like metal, so it’s what you want, especially in salty ocean air of Florida including Central Florida. Solid resin components in Caspian are thick, wide and heavy duty and include injection molded top ledges, frame rails, stabilizer bar, base plates and top plates. Caspian is completely resin except for the pool wall of course which does include a stainless steel service panel that prevents rust around the skimmer and return jet. These features make Caspian likely the last pool you’ll ever buy.

Why It’s Good – Made by Wilbar in New York. As much resin as possible and heavy duty design. Warrantied for both saltwater and freshwater. Looks great and easy to build. Everyone comments on how nice this pool is. Buy as a complete kit with everything or build your own custom package. Click here to view pool details.

Montego – Best Basic Above Ground Pool

This is a great high quality long lasting all steel pool and a definite step up from entry level models. All steel construction with wider, bigger, and heavier parts than any base model pool. Montego stands up well to large families and kids that like to play hard and roughhouse. This is a great heavy duty pool without the added costs associated with resin upgrades.

We have built this pool time and time again and we love it, it has a very sturdy feel and it looks great too. I would expect this pool to last 15-20 years in the Orlando area and at least 10+ years on the coast. We chose this as a best pick because it a great value in terms of construction quality and price.
