Small Backyard Pools on a Budget
Plan your small backyard pool on a budget with a partially in-ground installation
Halfway measures can sometimes give you the best of both worlds. For instance, many people think of pools as being fully in-ground or fully above-ground. But you can gain distinct advantages, and even save money, with a partially in-ground pool.
By installing partially in-ground, you can create a small backyard pool on a budget with many of the perks of a fully in-ground pool and some of the convenience of an aboveground pool.
Small Pools on a Budget
With a partially in-ground pool, you need a fraction of the excavation that a fully in-ground pool requires. The deeper you dig, the more time it takes and the more risks you run.
While a fully aboveground pool would be even more affordable, partially in-ground pools have distinct advantages that can make them worth the effort.
The Perks of Going Partial
Partially in-ground pools are the easiest to get in and out of. The pool's coping (its perimeter ledge) serves as seating to aid your entry and exit.
You'll also enjoy the unobstructed sight lines of a fully in-ground pool. It creates a more spacious feeling to your yard than you'd have with an above-ground pool. If your yard is on the smaller side already, that sense of openness is vital to enjoying the space and making it feel welcoming.
Assessing Your Small Pool Value
Endless Pools® offers a line of small pools for your backyard, patio, or new or existing indoor space. It's the small pool with the feel of a big pool thanks to the Endless Pools current. Our smooth current lets you swim in place or get added resistance for any aquatic exercise; it's fully adjustable for all ages and experience levels.
Every pool and swim spa model comes standard with an energy-efficient heater. That's partly why many Endless Pools customers enjoy their models as three- or four-season pools. The extended (or never-ending) pool season gives you significantly more return for your pool investment.
For insulation, you have a range of options. Our Original Series and WaterWell® pools can be easily fitted with insulation during pool assembly, while our swim spas come with three layers of insulation built in. We also offer insulated pool covers for peace of mind and heat conservation. When you install a partially in-ground pool, the earth acts as insulation for the underground part of the pool walls.
With a partially in-ground Endless Pools set-up, you can enjoy a small backyard pool on a budget. It's a creative way to merge in-ground luxury with above-ground practicality for family fun, fitness, relaxation, and uninterrupted swimming.
