Should you install your pool on a concrete pad?

In today’s episode of Poolside Chat, Rob and Matt answer this question about above ground pools. Should you install your pool on a concrete pad?”

We’ll presume in this scenario, this is a steel wall pool and frame. We don’t recommend putting them on a concrete pad, and the manufacturer doesn’t, for a couple of reasons. Typically the concrete pads don’t drain well. Another common issue is the pool’s weather-coated parts like its bottoms rims and plates will get scratched, making them more susceptible to corrosion.

Even if our pool’s rim and bottoms plates are resin, you still have a steel wall. Even aluminum can get scratched and corrode. Standing water on a concrete pad increases the likelihood of corrosion. That’s the reason they don’t recommend them.

Maybe if you have a soft-sided pool with PVC parts and no steel parts, you might be able to put that on a concrete pad. If we’re talking about the traditional steel-wall above-ground pool, we don’t recommend putting those on a concrete pad.

I think that just about covers it. If you have any questions about concrete pads, above-ground pools, or anything pool and spa, please visit us over at inyopools.com. Once again, thank you for joining us. Bye.
