Our OnGround POOLS SERIES offer an excellent compromise. Excavation is required, as the OnGround pool is set partway in the ground. The pool walls can be fully insulated, which keeps the heat in, and makes swimming more comfortable. They can also be partially backfilled, which virtually eliminates the risk of frost movement.
All OnGround pools include wide-mouth skimmers and two return jets. This gives improved circulation and with the large sand filter, makes it simple to keep your pool clean. Salt water systems are an easy option to add, as are underwater lights. Because there are no cross-straps, the pool depths can vary from 3 feet to 5 1/2 feet. This makes for a more user-friendly pool, since the shallow depth works well for children, and the deep area provides a great activity spot for adults. The walls of OnGround pools use the same steel walls as the TRADITIONAL SERIES pools. They are set into concrete footings, are extremely strong and can provide support for the construction of wooden decks and the floor is compacted clear sand. Our OnGround Pools come standard with a 30 mil patterned beaded liner and double-track aluminum bullnose coping, which allows for the addition of a fitted winter cover. The best part about OnGround pools…. they are a fraction of the price of an In Ground pool!
