DIY Above Ground Pool Installations
Going to do that installation yourself? Believe it or not, the majority of swimming pool installations are done by the home owner. It has always been that way and it shows no sign of changing. Because not everyone can spend the extra money on having a professional pool installer do the work for them. We have added guidance to help make your DIY swimming pool project a successful one. We have a lot of specific advise for the DIY crowd. There are pages and pages of information on the site that cover many areas of both pool installations and pool liner changes.
Recent additions include a list of popular swimming pool installation accessories with detailed descriptions of what the do. We have included images of each as well as our take on how important they are for a Florida above ground pool installation. In addition to that we have added professional guidance for shopping for an above ground pool. This information is short, to the point and covers what to buy, where to buy it and why it’s good. There is also a new FAQ page as well as a blog going live so our customers and fellow pool geeks can share experiences and trade important information from around the Tampa area.
Most of these upgrades to our site have come along through necessity, as we can no longer keep up with the amount of phone calls we receive. A large portion of calls are for advice on what to buy, where to shop or basic how to questions. This increase in phone calls are due to the growing popularity of above ground pools as well as a spiking increase in population, especially in South Florida.
We still make and receive some phone calls daily but operating bobcats and other machinery make spending much time on calls nearly impossible. We tend to get to the phone at the end of the day. Please take a look around our site for the answers you need. If you can’t find them please drop us an email and we get your questions answered.
Thanks for taking the time to read this page and Happy Swimming!
We started building above ground pools three decades ago for several of the local pool dealers around Tampa, Lakeland and Orlando. These companies were Pinch A Penny, Rec Warehouse and even Leslie’s Pool when they came to Florida. But aside from those dealers there was also a company in the TV Guide that sent work our way. This company sold pools through the TV Guide and shipped them to the freight terminal in Tampa or any other city where we picked them up, delivered and installed it for the customer. This seems kind of wild but this was cutting edge before the internet cam along. We kept quite busy working for these dealers and probably installed 200- 300 above ground pools each year across Central Florida. This is a lot of of work with even some coming in the winter months thanks to Tampa’s mild winter climate.
These days shopping for an above ground pool is easier than ever. The selection of goods has grown beyond belief and no longer are you limited to the products that are within driving distance. The lack of pricey road front real estate and other storefront expenses allow the online dealers to offer giant savings over the local corner pool stores. Today Tampa residents can purchase the same quality above ground pool for roughly half the money it would have cost 20 years ago from Leslies Pool or Rec Warehouse.
Our above ground pool experience comes specifically from working in Tampa and South Florida. Our work here has allowed us to see the effects the Florida environment has on swimming pools and products over time. And now we want to share our findings with the people seeking honest first hand information. Our goal is for this website to bring you more than just a price sheet, or regurgitating some old blog post, it needs to offer something based on real experiences. I hope you find the information on these pages helpful in your swimming pool project.
This same sweeping change in technology that changed how people shop has also changed how pools get installed. Back in the day the pool retailers like Orlando or Melbourne Rec Warehouse stores and Pinch A Penny stores from Leesburg to Lakeland had installers. Today nearly all of the pools and installation jobs come by way of the internet, meaning most of our customers find us online and most of the pools we install are purchased online too.
