Best Answer

Usually, the best and easiest way to determine is by looking at the prices: The higher the price, the better the pool.

Stainless steel may be the best. But steel will be affected by chlorine and may rust eventually. Aliminum does not rust.

Aluminum by nature is very soft, unless it is an "alloy," which would make it too rigid for above-ground pool construction. Above-ground pools need a certain amount of flexibility to accommodate water movement and temperature changes.

It is also important is to make sure of the gauge of the walls! If the walls are not of at least 30 gauge, and have a deep corrugation (ridges in the wall) they not last as well.

How much aluminum is there in aluminum panel?

Aluminium panels are made in various types: They can be "All-Aluminium" (meaning the panel could simply be an aluminum slab or a sheet of large thickness) or they could be composite panels where aluminum sheets are combined with other materials such as plastics, mineral fibers, or hard foam.Technically speaking, most aluminum sheets that are used in making panels are actually aluminum alloys (which means that some other metals in very small amounts have been added to the aluminum in order to strengthen it and allow it to acquire important properties). Different alloys have different aluminum content.To calculate how much aluminum is present in a panel, you would first need to identify your Alloy, and then have 3 pieces of information:1. The Density of your aluminum alloy.2. The Thickness of your aluminum panel.3. The Surface Area of your aluminum panel.For example, take a 1m2 panel of aluminum of alloy AA3003 and a thickness of 1.0mm. To calculate the amount of aluminum (by weight) in that panel, we use the above 3 pieces of information as follows:Weight of Aluminium = Density x (Thickness x Length x Width)Tip: Make sure that the units of measurement all match.(e.g. If you use "Kg." for Weight, then make sure you convert "millimeters-mm" to "meters-m" before applying the formula).
