An above-ground pool is easier to maintain, mostly because of their size. They can also be moved from their original location and relocated someplace else, if at sometime you decided you didn't want it anymore. In-ground pools, in most cases, increase the value of your home, as well as created buyer appeal, if you decided to sell. In-grounds are considerable more expensive, but once you got it...you got it. Same is true for most above grounds. They are very well made these days as opposed to twenty years ago, when an above ground pool may last a year or twenty years, according to what type you bought.
I think you are asking about above-ground, versus a concrete inground. In ground:PROS:Nice looking, more durable/not very suceptable to damage or UV detioration (except for ground shift). Last many years (30+, if maintained well and in good soil) CONS: Expenseive to build. Expensive to repair. Permanent. Ground shifting, as with clay soils, cn cause structural damage. You are stuck with the design/style you have. Above ground:PROS: Cost less. Easy to put up. Easy to take down. Easy/inexpensive to get the latest style/features CONS: Some people consider them tacky compared to inground. More subject to damage and UV deterioration. Do not last very many years(3-5) I have inground gunite pool. I like the look of it, but if I were starting from scratch I would probably opt for an above-ground pool. == == Pros: don't have to deal with walls cracking, easier to install and cheaper, easier to clean since it has a smooth surface, quicker to install. Cons: can't let your animals swim on it for they might scratch the liner, can be subject to puncture and locating it could be hard.
Depends on alot of things per the customers wants and needs. However, the more obvious pros and cons: An inground pool is a permanent structure and therefor affects your taxes. An above ground is temporary and does not. Cost, inground is more expensive, although you can get really close to a inground price on some of the fancier above grounds. Above ground pools do not usually need extra fencing, where ingrounds are usually required to be fenced per Code. Most people who spring for the inground pool get a deep end, therefor increasing your water volume and increasing the amount of chemicals you need for upkeep. Inground, you have to winterize, blow out lines, have water pumped out, etc. Above ground you unhook your top hose, let water drain out. When it stops put two plugs in, unhook filter and etc and put them in the garage for the winter. Above ground you can take with you when you move. Check your local codes with regard to fencing. My local code requires a 6-foot high "non-climbable" enclosure for any pool with a depth of 18 inches or more.
Pros are the same as those of an in ground pool. Swimming in the deep end. The only cons are the safety one if you have small children and unless your deck goes all the way around the pool, cleaning the deep end is a little more difficult than for an in ground pool. I enjoy a deep center in a round pool.
