Choosing guide

Flexible above ground pools


Firstly, you will find round inflatable pools that can be assembled in a few hours and dismantled in winter. Then there are the self-supporting pools made up of an inflatable top liner that floats up when the pool is filled with water: costing between 20 and 300 euros, these round models can be up to one metre high and again can be assembled and dismantled quickly. The last option is tubular pools with a liner that rests on metal tubes: “These pools are more resistant than self-supporting models that can end up bursting in the long term,” explains Grégory Herbaut, swimming pool product manager at Castorama. They are increasingly attracting customers looking for a pool that is easy to assemble, affordable (they start at less than 100 euros, a 5-metre rectangular pool is worth around 1000 euros) and do not require a concrete screed, all you need to do is protect the ground.

Rigid above ground pool models


In ascending order of price, steel pools lead the way (from 700 to more than 2000 euros for very large pools of 7 metres). Composed of a rollable steel wall fixed to steel posts, they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and are more solid than the flexible ones, for good value for money. To install these pools, you can still be satisfied with a stabilised ground, such as a flat bed of sand.

Natural or composite wood pools have many fans, both for their aesthetic appeal and their warmth. They were very fashionable ten years ago, but then sales occasionally ran out of steam, as the quality of the products was not always up to scratch,” continues Grégory Herbaut. This is no longer the case: the models are all made of class IV wood (adapted to humidity) and guaranteed for 10 years, which means that they are back in favour. Most of the models are made of softwood (pine, fir) treated in autoclave to avoid rotting, others are made of oak or exotic wood such as teak: very aesthetic, they nevertheless require a certain amount of maintenance to avoid greying, with the application of a woodstain every year. Wooden pools are increasingly in demand,” confirms Gilles Mouchiroud, a Desjoyaux specialist, a company renowned for its expertise in in-ground and above-ground pools. They combine aesthetics, quality (they are perfectly self-supporting), great resistance and ease of installation. We deliver them in a complete kit (structure, liner, filtration) with instructions that make it easy to assemble them at home. All that is required is a level surface and therefore a concrete floor to install them safely, as well as an electrical supply. The price of wooden pools varies according to the volume of the pool, the quality of the wood and the finish: it ranges from 1,500 euros for softwood models to 7 or 8,000 euros for exotic wood models. Prices can go up to 15,000 euros for custom-made pools.

More recently, concrete pools are made up of vibrated concrete panels that are very solid. Among the few distributors is Castorama: “This year, we have developed rectangular pools made of ribbed concrete with a wood look, for a superb aesthetic. The concrete planks are inserted into metal pillars for a very solid pool, which is installed on a concrete screed and can even be buried. Prices start at 5,000 euros and can reach 9,000 euros, for a 7.5 x 3 m pool.”

An above-ground pool with a thick enough liner


“It is better to opt for a complete kit which includes the structure to be assembled, the liner, the filtration and a ladder, advises Gilles Mouchiroud. At Desjoyaux, we also supply an electrical programming box that controls the filtration time. You will have everything at hand and above all, the brands size the liner and the filtration according to the size of the pool and its volume of water”. However, you should know that the thickness of the liner (a flexible and often blue fabric that lines the inside of the pool) is important for the resistance of your future pool. It is expressed in hundredths and the higher the figure, the stronger the liner. Liners of 20/100ths (small inflatable pools in particular) are the least resistant to tearing and wear and tear. A liner of 70 to 80/100ths can last 10 years (all are guaranteed for two years). The plus? A floor mat that will protect the liner and improve comfort.

The quality of the filtration for the above ground pool


Smaller pools are often equipped with cartridge filters, which require little maintenance apart from changing the cartridges. Larger pools are often fitted with sand filters, which have a higher flow rate and are more resistant than the former but require more maintenance and do not filter very small particles. Some companies, such as Desjoyaux, have developed other exclusive systems: “We equip our above-ground pools with patented filter bags that filter impurities down to only 6 microns. This is a real plus for the consumer with completely clean water for swimming”.

Good to know


As long as the pool does not exceed 20 m, you do not have to make a declaration to the town hall. In addition, as above-ground pools are supposed to be removable, you are not obliged to protect access to them as with in-ground pools
