Sure the popularity of above ground pools (בריכות ספא) has been increasing exponentially in recent years but are they really the best option for all people. Of course they have their positive attributes but in the end, upon closer examination there are still a few places that they come up short when compared to a classic built in cement pool.
For instance, if you’re planning to run and dive into a “very” deep pool, you won’t find that in most above grounds. Yes they have a softer bottom if you do come in contact but generally speaking, cement built-ins tend to be somewhat deeper.
Overall size is yet another area where above ground Jacuzzi (ג׳קוזי) pools come up short. Yes most built ins are relatively small these days due to the cost of having a large built in pool installed. However; if you’re thinking of a larger pool, you may want to consider a standard built in.
The shape of a pool is something that you may not have considered quite yet. You see, above ground pools, due to their engineering restrictions, have to be round or oval shaped. In in-ground spa pools (בריכות ספא) on the other hand come with so many more design options, particularly as it pertains to the actual shape of the pool.
