Swimming Pools at Watsons

Step into your very own outdoor oasis with the wide range of swimming pools at Watsons. For over 50 years, Watson's has been a leading provider of swimming pools in the region. Our team of experts makes it easy for you to design and install the pool of your dreams. With a variety of pool types, options, and pool toys, Watson's can help create an outdoor living oasis tailored to your home and lifestyle.

The Different Types of Pools

Watson's offers above ground, in-ground, and semi-in ground pools to suit your space and needs. Take advantage of our free at-home consultation to determine which type works best for your property and lifestyle. We consider factors like yard size, layout, soil type, zoning laws, and budget.

Above Ground Pools

Above ground pools are the most affordable and low-maintenance option. These pools sit on top of the ground rather than being built into it. Many models can be disassembled for winter or relocation. Both round above ground pools and oval above ground pools work well when an in-ground pool isn’t feasible due to budget, space limitations, or rental situations. Their vertical walls maximize the swimming area. Various height, shape, color, and accessory options are available to fit your preferences. Framed pools and inflatable kiddie pools are also great above ground options.

Inground Pools

In-ground pools offer a permanent solution for those truly dedicated to an outdoor swimming experience. They can be customized to fit your needs and add significant aesthetic and value to your home. However, they do require more extensive work, taking anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to install. Also, ground swimming pools require certain safety measures to ensure a safe swimming experience, such as fences and covers.

Semi-Inground Pools

Semi-inground pools offer a middle ground between above ground and inground designs. The bottom portion is built into the ground while walls rise above ground level. This style provides the aesthetic of an inground pool with easier installation and lower cost.

What You Need for Your Pool

A swimming pool can transform your backyard into an oasis of outdoor living, but it requires some essential items for the best experience. Besides the pool itself, whether you're opting for above ground pools or kiddie pools, you'll need a good set of pool toys, pool safety equipment, and proper cleaning and maintenance tools. That's why Watson’s provides all the equipment and accessories you need to maximize enjoyment and pool safety. This includes pumps, filters, heaters, lighting, ladders, safety covers, automatic cleaners, and more.

For pool safety, consider items like safety nets, pool fences, and pool covers. These not only protect kids and pets but also protect chlorine in the pool from excessive exposure to sunlight, causing it to degrade faster. With these, chlorine lasts longer in your pool, reducing the cost of maintenance.

And when it comes to having fun, pool toys can enhance the experience. Watson's offers a wide range from inflatable floaters and water guns to dive toys and sports nets. Shop all pool supplies to find the right equipment and accessories for you.


How do you install an above-ground pool?

Installing an above-ground swimming pool isn't as daunting as it seems. You need to choose a suitable site, ensure it's leveled, lay down a ground cloth, and follow the instructions to set up the pool. Remember to fill with water gradually to check for any leaks.

How long do above-ground pools last?

The lifespan of above-ground pools largely depends on the type of pool and maintenance. While inflatable pools may last for a few years, framed pools have greater longevity, often lasting for up to 15 years with proper maintenance.

How do you maintain a swimming pool?

Pool maintenance mainly involves frequent cleaning, proper chemical balance, and ensuring efficient functioning of the filter system. Regularly skim off debris, vacuum the pool, and check the chemical levels. During summer, the pool may need more chlorine due to increased usage and higher temperatures.
