Swimming Pools on Sale
If you are looking at used swimming pools for sale online you are probably looking at aboveground pools, which are an excellent choice. Here, we are going to go over why aboveground pools can be a better way to go than inground, different sizes of used pools for sale you may find here, and additional considerations about the pool; we'll also cover different types of used swimming pool equipment for sale you may be searching for as well.
First, let us mention that when searching through classified ads here at Want Ad Digest you can browse all ads available, with the most recent on top, or you can narrow down your search to something more specific, perhaps including the location. For instance, you can look for "above ground pools Syracuse NY," or you can search for a more broad "used above ground swimming pools for sale."
Also, keep in mind that sellers may spell items differently, or list them under a different name. For instance, "aboveground" is technically one word, but many people have used above ground pools for sale, with "above ground" as two words. Finally, as alluded to earlier, you can also look for used swimming pool equipment: used swimming pool pumps, used swimming pool slides for sale, pool ladders for sale, etc.
Moving onto swimming pools on sale: Although aboveground pools do not add to your property value because they are portable, it could be argued that this is a better decision for a backyard pool anyway; studies indicate that adding an inground pool to your home can actually sometimes decrease the value. Moreover, some people hate the idea of having to maintain them and worry about their kids or someone else drowning. Therefore, getting an aboveground pool over an inground is actually a really good idea - plus they are cheaper, particularly if you buy a used swimming pool from one of our reputable dealers here at Want Ad Digest.
Before browsing used swimming pools for sale, think about where it will be going in your yard. Sunny areas keep the pool water warm, and also keep the pool out of the way of falling leaves from trees. Also, think about the placement of trees and fences in your yard, because these barriers can act as wind breaks, which are a good thing. Wind breaks can prevent the wind from blowing over the pool; wind increases evaporation, so keeping the breeze to a minimum is ideal. Finally, consider if you will need an equipment shed for pool item storage. This is a great way to not only store your equipment out of the way, but it also will keep dangerous items like chemical testing kits away from kids and pets.
Above ground used swimming pools for sale are typically round or oval shaped - the oval shaped ones tend to be a bit bigger. Above ground pools can be as small as 15 feet in diameter or as large as 36 feet. The height is usually 48 inches to 52 inches tall.
Whether you are planning on installing the used pool for sale yourself or are hiring a professional to do so please follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the pool; if the seller does not have these instructions, try to obtain them directly from the manufacturer. Prior to the installation, remove all dirt and grass from the pool site to counteract potential rotting underneath the pool.
It is vitally important when installing a used swimming pool that the ground be level - this is usually the biggest problem with the installation. If this is not done properly the bottom of the pool can end up looking lumpy or wrinkled. The area should also be free of rocks and roots. Moreover, avoid putting the pool on an area of grass that has been chemically treated, because the chemicals could affect the lining of the pool.
When it comes to pool accessories, ask the seller if there is any used swimming pool equipment for sale included with the used swimming pool. If there are still items that you want or need in addition to the used swimming pool for sale you are looking at, you can browse the items right here at Want Ad Digest. Pool accessories or equipment could include a heater, lights, pumps, a cover, etc. Although, one thing you are most likely going to want to buy new for used swimming pools for sale is the vinyl liner - they are not very expensive and come in many shapes, sizes, and styles. Lights available for swimming pools basically come in three varieties: through the wall, over the wall, and floating solar powered lights - through the wall is the most common variety.
Perhaps you already own a pool and are thus not looking at used swimming pools for sale, but instead are looking to add something like a diving board. Diving boards, because they are meant for deep waters, are typically only available for inground pools and not aboveground. Surprisingly, diving boards are actually available in several different varieties and sizes. A flexible diving board on a flexible stand is actually called a jump board; a rigid board on a rigid stand is called a diving platform. If you are looking into diving boards for sale, do all of the adequate research to ensure that it is safe, that is compliant with your existing pool, and that you are meeting local codes and regulations.
Used swimming pool slides for sale are great way to add something unique and fun to swimming pools. There are different slides for inground pools and aboveground pools, so make sure you are buying the correct kind. The size and shape of the pool slide will depend on the age and size of the children who will be using it. For younger kids, there are smaller slides that are typically a bit simpler and lower to the ground. For older kids, there are bigger and curvier slides. For safety reasons, regardless of the kind of slide you end up with, you will need a solid ladder to coincide with it. Fortunately, we often have pool ladders for sale available here.
