Filling an Above Ground Pool
Installing An Above Ground Pool: A DIY Project?
You consider yourself a do-it-yourselfer, right? Is installing a swimming pool something you want to take on? If so, you probably already know that above ground swimming pools are less expensive and easier to install than an in-ground pool; a pool contractor would likely charge between $500 and $1,000 to erect an above ground swimming pool. If you'd like to save some money, if you're handy with tools and can round up a few friends, you might be able to take on above ground pool installation duties.
We have listed a few of the steps needed to do this project. Keep in mind though, each pool manufacturer has its own procedures so make certain you thoroughly read the instructions that come with the pool kit. This list is just a snapshot of the steps necessary to install your own above ground pool. Remember, it's a commitment and a pretty big project to install a pool yourself so make sure you've got the time and know-how before you jump into the project.
You can probably install an above ground pool on your own as long as you have the proper tools, a do-it-yourself attitude and a group of friends, just make certain you have read and thoroughly understand what goes into the project before you sink a shovel in the ground.
