Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/24/2012 -- It was back at the end of World War II when above ground pools really began to surge in popularity. Returning soldiers, sailors, and airmen after World War 2 needed something fast, affordable and convenient to set up in the backyards of homes where they were starting their new families.
As time progressed though, their families grew, they moved on to bigger homes, and all too often left their aboveground pools behind; opting for a cement built-in. A pool that was more expensive, yet at the same time was for sure more durable and also carried more feature options.
But as time has passed, in much the same way that so many other trends come full circle, the children of those servicemen and women who swam in those first above ground pools are now in growing numbers returning to their roots by opting for the original pools that worked so well for their parents.
Aside from being the more affordable choice, a wide range of improvements in materials and designs, along with the introduction of new products that accompany them is viewed as the primary driving force behind this new market trend.
Products like easy to install, 100% real wood decking that comes pre-cut and ready to go with all parts included. Decks like this lend a permanent finished look to an above ground pool and don't require any previous carpentry experience.
Technology in inflatable aboveground pool accessories has also come a long way over the last handful of decades. In fact it's come so far that there are now that even inflatable pool slides are now available on the market for a fraction of the cost of a traditional pool slide.
Then in terms of safety, new developments in fold up ladders for above ground pools place them head and shoulders above standard inground pools when it comes to cutting the risk of drowning. Fold up Ladders that completely cut off all access to pool when they're engaged in the 'up' position.
But the pools themselves have also been upgraded with new products. Products like corrosion resistant framing members that make for a longer service life than in decades past. Liners are also now made with improved plastic for a longer service life as well, and they're also available in more colors than the standard blue of years past.
But in the end, even with all the new improvements and adaptations it's value that's also drawing back hords of new converts. With the burst of the housing bubble people now need to know that a pool is worth the money and will improve the value of their home before they buy. A classic weak area in standard cement built-ins that all too often didn't carry their cost over on to a home when it came time to sell.
