Compare Above Ground & Inground Pools With Pool Pro in Kihei, Kihei, Hawaii

Choosing a pool for your home is a big decision and an even bigger investment. You want your pool to be with you for a long time, so it's important to take all factors into consideration before buying. Pool Pro of Kihei, HI, has been serving the people of Maui since 1985 as the island’s go-to source for everything from new pool construction to pool maintenance.

Pool Pro is qualified to work on any type of pool, so they’ve provided a few key differences between inground and above ground pools for you to reference in your decision. There are distinct advantages to both types, and in most cases it ultimately comes down to personal preference. 

Here are some pros and cons to chew on when comparing your two options: 

  • inground poolUpfront Cost: Inground pools will undoubtedly be your most expensive upfront option, but it’s worth it to consider cost over the lifespan of the unit. It's also important to think realistically when planning for new pool construction and consider additional factors like a surrounding patio and deck, landscaping, and other accessories. Pool Pro's specialists will happily come out to your property  and consult with you along the way. 
  • Size & Depth: While the initial cost may be higher, inground pools have a keen advantage in terms of versatility. Above ground pools can end up being larger than you might expect, and most are limited in depth variation. Keep your ideal size and depth options in mind when deciding between the two. 
  • Maintenance & Longevity: Above ground pools can last anywhere from seven to fifteen years before the structure deteriorates, and liners can last five to nine years before replacement is needed. An inground pool's longevity is much more considerable, but does depend on the type. Vinyl, fiberglass, and concrete have their own individual expected life spans, but they can be renewed through processes such as resurfacing and liner replacement.
