Hello, above ground pool owners. It’s Matt and Rob. We hope you’re doing great, but chances are if you’re on this post, your day is not going all that well. And that’s because your pool is broken and you can’t find parts. Well, in this video, Rob and I will review commonly replaced parts for above ground pools, their functions and the best way to find the part you need.
Let’s dig in.
It’s not as big a question as it was six or eight years ago, but I still get a fair amount of people asking about aluminum above ground pools. The main reason anyone would consider an aluminum over a steel above ground pool is to avoid rust. This is definitely true as aluminum won’t rust. Rust is a term that is used only for the oxidation of iron and aluminum has no iron. It will corrode, though, so there’s not much to gain in getting an aluminum pool, but it’s worth going over the pros and cons just in case your heart is set on getting one.
If you don’t want to read this whole article just to get my opinion, then no worries. I’ll give it to you right now. In the general sense, aluminum pools are not worth the extra cost. Now, if you have the time to find out why, read on. (more…)
