Inground Swimming PoolsWhen it comes to inground swimming pools and above-ground swimming pools, there’s really no comparison. Inground pools are far superior in virtually every aspect, which we’ll outline here. Really the only reason to choose an above-ground pool rather than an inground one is if you cannot afford an inground pool. But inground swimming pools are worth the cost, should you choose to invest in one.

  • Longevity and durability. Inground swimming pools are made with superior quality products and will last much, much longer than any above-ground pool. Typically, above-ground pools wear out after 5-7 years, whereas an inground pool can last 20+ years.
  • Customizable. Above-ground swimming pools are all round and will be one depth in the entire pool. By the nature of how they are constructed, it isn’t possible to have it any other way. On the other hand, an inground pool can be customized and constructed in endless options, so you can have the perfect pool for your needs. You can have varying levels, zero depth entry, shallow sections, deeper sections, fountains, and a wide variety of shapes. The sky is the limit, especially if you work with us at Pool Blue Inc., since we specialize in custom swimming pools.
  • Increases the value of your home. Inground swimming pools increase the value of a home by 5-10%. A pool adds to the living space, and beautiful outdoor landscaping adds appeals to your home. Above-ground pools detract from the beauty of the home and will likely have to be taken down and removed when you’re trying to sell your home.

Inground swimming pools are a great investment. They beautify the home and provide hours of family fun and entertainment for guests. We know you’ll love your inground swimming pool from Pool Blue Inc.!
