Above Ground Pool: What Size is Right for You?

This article discusses the available sizes of above ground pools and how to decided which size is best for your family.

Small Above Ground Pools

The smallest size above ground pool that I have seen is 10' x 36". Although on the package, this size pool may appear fun for a family of four, it is not that big. If you are wondering how big 10 feet is, just measure out a circle that is 10 feet in diameter. An above ground pool that is 36" does not hold 36" of water. 36" is the height of the pool walls, this means that the actual water level of your pool is 32" or less.

A 10' x 36" up to a 15' x 36" above ground pool would be the perfect match for a small family with small children. Last year, we used the larger of the baby pools for my kids who were then 2 and 3. My kids had fun in there baby pools last year but it was obvious that my 3 year old would have a lot more fun in a larger pool the next year.

This year, we were given an above ground pool that is 12' x 36" and we have already been able to put it up and to use. The 12' x 36" above ground pool is fun for our family of four that includes two adults and a 3 and 4 year old. At first, my children were afraid of the pool and clung on to us for dear life. Once the kids realized that they could touch the bottom, they began playing and having a blast. My husband and I have inflatables that we lay on in the pool while the kids play. If my kids were older I might feel OK sitting in a lawn chair next to the pool while they play to supervise but right now I feel I need to supervise from inside the pool to be able to react faster to their needs.

I feel as though we could have used the baby pools one more year but we moved up since we were given our above ground pool. I recommend the small above ground pools for families with children who are up to 7 years of age. If your children are older than 7, I believe that the larger above ground pools (below) will better suit your families needs.

Large Above Ground Pools

You can buy the larger above ground pools that are more permanent and with metal walls for several thousand dollars. If you are looking for a large above ground pool that won't break the bank, the largest easy set pool that I have found is 24' x 52". The 24' x 52" above ground pool is currently available at stores like Wal-mart with a list price of $799 (in my area). This size pool is the same size my local pool store offers as more permanent metal walled option.

Large above ground pools are optimal for families with several children who about 7 years and older. The person who gave us our above ground pool gave it to us after they used it only one season. Her family loved the pool but with a 6 year old and an 8 year old, the pool was just not big enough to have the fun they were looking for. Don't get me wrong, had they not been able to afford a bigger one, I am sure they would have been able to make do. Fortunately, they were able to upgrade to the 24' x 52" above ground pool and have been having a blast in it.

Although these new above ground pools only cost a few hundred dollars, you want to spend your money to be able to get the maximum fun possible. If your kids are bigger and you can wait, save up and extra hundred dollars or two and get the larger pool. If your kids are young like mine, you should be able to get away with a smaller above ground pool for a couple years.
