Three Types of Above Ground Pools
There are three types of above ground pools: hard-sided pools, frame pools, and ring pools. First, measure the amount of space that the pool can use. Then, find out which shape best fits into your outdoor space. 1. Hard-Sided PoolSizes:

2. Frame PoolSizes:
- Ideal for homeowners looking for a long-term pool, this permanent option is made out of three materials: steel, aluminum, and/or resin walls. The vinyl liner is sold separately and if needed, replaceable. Though it's a more expensive option, a hard-sided pool is the most durable. It's can last 15 to 30-plus years!

3. Ring PoolSizes:
- A durable option, a frame pool is made out of a sturdy steel frame that includes a vinyl liner. This pool can easily be broken down to store for the winter or moved from one home to the next. A perfect option for renters or homeowners who want easy maintenance. Compared to a hard-sided pool, it's a less-expensive pick.

An inexpensive choice, a ring pool is a vinyl pool featuring an inflatable top ring that rises as water is being added. Similar to a frame pool, it's long lasting and super easy to disassemble for storage when not in use.
