What type of pool is better? Above or below?
I am relocating from NY to AZ and am buying a house. I want a pool for obvious reasons, but surprisingly not a lot of homes have pools. It is SO hot there, how can you NOT have a pool?? In any case, looking for a home with a pool limits my options, so I have begun to look at homes without pools. However I have every intention of installing one. I don’t see many with above ground pools, and I’d like to know why. They are THOUSANDS of dollars cheaper. I know why in ground are more expensive. You need a permit, have to dig a huge hole, etc. but is it really worth it? Do I need flood insurance with an above ground pool? Not sure if that would really flood my home, but you never know. I just want to make sure that if I invest in a home without a pool, I find a way to get it. 14k vs. 3k is a HUGE difference!
