Semi Inground Pools vs. Inground Pools, vs. Above Ground Pools

Semi Inground Pools vs. Inground Pools, vs. Above Ground Pools

Posted by Dunn Rite on Mar 8th 2023

Considering a pool for your home? Believe it or not, they're endless options of shapes, design, and styles, but overall there are three basic types of pools in general. You can choose between semi in-ground pools, in-ground pools, and above-ground pools. Maybe you have future plans to install a  pool volleyball unit with your semi in-ground pool or in-ground pool and that's the deciding factor. We'll go over each one so you get a better understanding of what they are exactly.

Semi In-ground Pools

A perfect option for homeowners who want an in-ground pool, but don't necessarily like the price tag, semi in-ground pools are less hassle compared to in-ground pools as well. These pools are typically partially buried in the ground, with the top portion of the pool sitting above ground level. This can create a more natural, organic look that blends in well with your backyard landscaping.

The huge benefit of semi in-ground pools are their lower cost compared to fully in-ground pools. Because they don't require as much excavation, installation is typically quicker and less expensive. Additionally, because the pool sits partially above ground, it can be easier to access and maintain.

In-ground Pools

Inground pools are a popular choice for those who want a luxurious, custom pool that perfectly fits their backyard space. These pools are fully buried in the ground and can be customized with a wide range of features, including waterfalls, fountains, and custom lighting.

One of the main benefits of inground pools is their versatility. Because they can be customized to fit a wide range of shapes and sizes, they're a great option for homeowners with unique backyard spaces. Additionally, because they're fully buried in the ground, they can be more visually appealing and add more value to your home.

However, inground pools also come with some drawbacks. They can be more expensive to install, especially if you opt for custom features. Additionally, maintenance can be more complicated because of the need to constantly monitor the pool's chemical balance and filtration system.

Above-Ground Pools

Above ground pools are a popular choice for homeowners who want an affordable, low-maintenance pool option. These pools are typically made from durable materials like vinyl or metal and can be set up in just a few days.

One of the main benefits of above ground pools is their affordability. They're typically much less expensive than inground or semi inground pools, making them a great option for those on a budget. Additionally, because they're above ground, they can be more easily removed or relocated if needed.

However, above ground pools also come with some drawbacks. They're typically smaller than inground or semi inground pools, and may not be suitable for larger families or those who want to swim laps. Additionally, because they're not as visually appealing as inground or semi inground pools, they may not add as much value to your home.

Pool Accessories for Every Type of Pool

In the end it's up to you what you prefer and which pool you think you'll get the most out of. Each type of pool has its benefits and drawbacks, however at Dunn-Rite we supply pool accessories for any pool. Although you can't necessarily setup pool volleyball or pool volleyball, we have other  pool accessories for above-ground pools such as our pool stools or pool fountains. Designed with rubber stoppers, they won't tear the lining of your above-ground pool.
