If you’re planning to buy an above ground pool, you’re probably wondering how long it will last. On average, above ground pools have a lifespan of 10-15 years. However, this can vary depending on the type of pool, the quality of materials used, and how well it’s maintained.
There are three main types of above ground pools: inflatable pools, frame pools, and soft-sided pools. Inflatable pools are typically the least expensive and easiest to set up, but they also have the shortest lifespan – about 2-5 years. Frame pools are more durable than inflatable pools because they’re made with metal or resin frames that can withstand heavy use and weather conditions. They usually last 6-12 years. Soft-sided pools are made with a PVC or vinyl liner that’s supported by a steel or aluminum frame. They’re usually less expensive than framepools but have a shorter lifespan – about 5-10 years.
