Have you been struggling to find the perfect pool to fit your backyard, but you aren’t sure how a semi-onground swimming pool would work? The experts at Doughboy® know there are so many backyards and different things to accommodate when making this important decision. A semi-onground swimming pool may be the perfect option for you.
What is a Semi-Onground Swimming Pool?
It simply means that part of the pool is above grade and part of the pool is recessed into the ground.
This term can also be used interchangeably with semi-inground.
Whichever term you prefer, these types of pools will allow you to have part of your pool in the ground and part of it above.
How do You Know if a Semi-Onground Swimming Pool is Right for You?
Having a semi-onground swimming pool can create several benefits for your backyard and be super useful when you have certain terrain to contend with.
If you have a backyard that is limited in space or has a steep slope, a semi-onground swimming pool, like Doughboy’s Hydrosphere, could be the perfect solution.
Digging into the slope can be a simple solution to create a pool space in your yard. It will keep you from needing to regrade the entire yard before placing a pool, or worse, from never being able to have one at all.
These styles of pools can also be space-saving options if you have a smaller backyard to work with. Our Semi-Onground pools come in multiple sizes so that you can choose the one that works best for you. We even offer oval options for longer, skinnier backyards.
Benefits of a Semi-Onground Swimming Pool
While there are many benefits to choosing a semi-onground swimming pool, we are listing our favorites here.
More Energy Efficient
We love that placing your pool partially in the ground offers the chance to save on energy costs. The ground serves as additional insulation so that your pool will maintain a consistent temperature.
This means your pool can hold heat a little longer so that your heater doesn’t have to run as frequently.
Having a semi-onground swimming pool will also ensure your pool lasts longer. While Doughboy pools are known to last many years when you take care of them, placing them partially inground will protect them from the elements more.
With less wind, rain, and other weather conditions able to reach the pool walls, they will continue to stand the test of time.
Inground Pool Aesthetics
Finally, many people love that having a semi-onground swimming pool allows their pool to look and feel the same as a more expensive inground pool option. It won’t block views that you love or stand out on the landscape. It can blend seamlessly with the rest of your yard.
