To keep you and your family safe we have designed a covering for the underside of the coping – this is to prevent bees, wasps and spiders from nesting. These copings are our very own square design multi-ribbed internally for added strength and made from a super strong extruded resin.

Our copings are a cream colour this not only makes the pool itself look nicer it also helps deflect the sun’s rays to stay cooler than the old-fashioned metal copings, which get extremely hot in summer. The cream colour is a neutral colour that blends well with the colours of most boundary fences.

At Affordable Pools, we don’t use middlemen; we sell directly to the public so we can pass those savings onto you.

How to prepare your yard for your above ground pool

Above ground, pools offer a lot of conveniences, which is probably why they’re becoming increasingly popular. You can install them in a smaller space than in-ground pools, and they’re usually cheaper to erect. They have an even depth from end to end, so they make good lap pools. And they’re available in chlorine and salt-water options.

An above ground pool needs a solid, steady surface. Otherwise, it can sink and cause a lot of damage. So as you choose your site, don’t just rush to that spot you can see from your kitchen window. We know this is a primary decider if you have kids, but ground stability trumps ease of supervision.

Find an area that is naturally level, since this will give you less preparation time. The space should be far away from septic tanks, power lines, and water lines to avoid leakage and accidents. Local regulations can advise you on mandatory distance, so check them carefully.

It might be hard just by looking to see if you have enough space for the kind of pool you want. You need three things to confirm sizing: a sharp stick, some string, and a can of spray paint. Go to the ‘centre’ of the pool, dig in the sharp stick, and tie a string around it.

How To Prepare Your Yard For Your Above Ground Pool

Tie the spray can to the other end of the stick. Now walk around the intended edge of the pool, using the spray can to map it out. This will help you see how it stretches all around, and whether the boundaries affect any water pipes of obstructions. The edge should be 6 inches wider than the planned dimensions of the pool.

Remove all vegetation and stones from the space inside your spray can perimeter. Flatten the base of the pool by digging out raised areas so that they match lower areas. To make sure it’s level, use a flat wood plank pivoted with a nail or metal stake and spin it around the area on the pool. Use a carpenter’s level tool to ensure the wood is lying flat.

Once you have a flat area, fill it with limestone 1 or 2 inches deep. Use the wood to flatten the limestone, then remove it and fill the wood space with limestone as well. Check the whole base to make sure it’s completely flat and level. Your pool area is now ready for installation.
