There is no better way to relax on a warm summer’s day than by dipping your toes in an above-ground pool. Having a pool in your home’s backyard can help you and your family have all the fun together.
Watson’s has been in business for more than 50 years and has the nation’s
largest selection of round above ground pools available, including model sizes ranging from 15 feet all the
way up to 33 feet, all at the guaranteed lowest price in the USA.
We also carry a wide selection of pool supplies to help you maintain your above-ground pool. Whether you need a new pool liner, filter cartridge, or ground cover, you’ll find what you need. And if you’re looking for a little more fun with a pool float, volleyball set, or colorful pool light, we’ve got you covered.
If you’re adding an above-ground pool to your home’s backyard space, you’ll
need to take a few key considerations to make sure you find a swimming pool that best works for your home:
First, determine where your above-ground pool will be set in your backyard. Try to make it easy to access and see from your house, and position it where the sun can easily warm the water. Consider if you’ll need to lay a walkway to walk to it, or if you will want a deck, patio, or slide around your pool.
If you do plan a deck, the pool wall height is connected to how tall you’re going to make the deck. The
layout of your backyard can help determine how you’ll set the pool around the space.
Shape and Size
After you’ve determined the best spot for your pool, consider the size. The size is
dependent on how much space you have to allot for a pool in your backyard. If you have a small yard, pools
that are 15 feet long in diameter will probably work best.
If you frequently entertain or plan to host pool
parties, consider a larger size pool, assuming you have the space. Finally, consider how deep you want your
pool to be. Most come in either 48 inches or 52 inches deep. Many choose a size that is 52 inches in deep
for a more submersible pool experience; however, this is entirely based on personal preference.
Pool Pump, Filter, and Other Cleaning Accessories
Next, choose the equipment and accessories that are best suited for your use. Because a round
above-ground pool will be used for years, you’ll want to get the best cleaning supplies that can
keep your pool clean every season
These tools and supplies include a pool filter and sand filter pump to clear debris like twigs and leaves. A pool filter, pump, and wide-mouth skimmer will help scoop floating debris out of the water, while pool chemicals help balance the water chemistry for safe swimming. Purchasing a pool maintenance kit is a great way to consolidate these cleaning supplies.
A pool cover or ground cloth can be used when you aren’t using the pool to keep it clean and warm. A debris cover is a must for the off-season to keep the water temperature regulated for an easy open next summer.
And, of course, pool games and toys are just as important as the cleaning supplies. Browse our
selection of inflatable toys, balls, and more.

Pros of Above-Ground Swimming Pools
Don’t be led to believe that in-ground pools are always superior to above-ground models. There are several distinct advantages to above-ground pools that inflatable pools, saltwater pools, and in-ground swimming pools can’t match.
First, above-ground pools are more affordable than in-ground swimming pools. A quality above-ground pool will give you the full swimming pool experience without the cost of expensive excavation and in-ground installation. After laying the bottom rails, construction of an above-ground pool is fairly straightforward.
In fact, above-ground pools can be installed quickly and easily. Depending on the size of the unit and the experience of the installation crew, an above-ground pool can be fully installed in as little as 4 to 6 hours.
Above-ground pools come in a wide variety of layouts, shapes, and sizes. You can find the perfect fit for your space without compromising style. And because of the size and design of most above-ground pools, they tend to be easier to maintain.

- How durable are above-ground pools?
- A quality galvanized steel frame above-ground pool that has been properly installed and maintained can last as long as 15 years. Above-ground pools are more susceptible to damage than in-ground swimming pools, but a simple repair patch can usually solve any punctures.
- Is an above-ground pool a worthy investment?
- An above-ground pool can be a great investment. Having your own pool can improve your physical health and help you relax after a stressful day. Above-ground pools are more affordable and easier to install than in-ground swimming pools and are easy to maintain.
- What is the best depth for an above-ground pool?
- Most above-ground pools come with either 48”, 52”, or 54” pool wall heights. The best depth is up to your preference but you should consider factors like who will be using the pool and the safety assurances of lower walls before deciding.
