Knowing how to pick the best pool for your family is wildly important. With an investment of this magnitude, you certainly don’t want to realize a month into ownership that the above-ground pool you chose wasn’t a good fit.
Doughboy® Pools experts are here to help you weigh your options before you purchase. Using our tips, you will feel confident in your choice of swimming pool for your family. Let’s make this family summer the best one yet with the right pool for you!
Plan a Budget to Get the Best Pool for Your Family
The first step in any major purchase is to set a budget. Especially if the price range is going to be on the higher end, like with a high-quality above-ground pool.
At the lower end of the spectrum, you will see above-ground pools from big box stores that start at just a few hundred dollars. These pools are temporary and only meant to last a few months during one swim season.
If you decide to go this way, you will need to plan on spending the same amount of money to have a pool again next year.
At the upper end of the spectrum, you are looking at taking out loans or saving up for a few years to have the money to pay for a custom inground pool option.
You will spend around $75,000 for a base-level style inground pool. If you want specialty things or more custom features, it will be upwards of $100,000.
For a more moderate option, look at high-quality above-ground pools from your trusted Doughboy Dealer. Our pools are American made with amazing Premium 5-year warranties available.
We know they will stand the test of time, and we have something to fit every budget. You can even place our pools inground if you like!
Plan for the Right Size to Pick the Best Pool for Your Family
After setting a budget, you will be able to choose the perfect size pool for your family.
Pools come in all shapes and sizes, so you need to consider what will fit in your yard and how many people you will host in your pool on a regular basis.
If you have a small yard, you will obviously need a smaller pool. If you plan on hosting large gatherings, you will need a larger pool.
Your budget will also determine how big your pool can be. The bigger the pool, the higher the price.
At Doughboy, we do offer a variety of shapes and sizes to ensure there is something to fit every yard and budget.
