A semi-inground pool is an above-ground pool that can sit entirely above ground, sink halfway, or be entirely submerged. While the pool is a literal halfway point between inground and aboveground, it’s also growing in popularity. The market for this pool consists of people who are willing to spend a little more money than the cost of a traditional above ground but don’t have quite enough to invest in an inground pool.
A semi-inground pool is an affordable alternative to a traditional inground pool and it is easier to install. It is also a good choice if you have strict homeowner association rules about height. It features the same round or oval shape options that an above-ground pool does. If you want your pool to blend more harmoniously with your landscape than a typical above-ground pool, a semi-inground is a great choice.
The semi-inground pool requires less digging, dealing with utility lines, tree roots, etc. In addition, sinking a semi-inground pool several feet below the ground often makes it easier to manage pipes and pumps. A homeowner has a great deal of versatility in creating their deck as opposed to a traditional above-ground pool.
