overdug above-ground pool, wrapped in a square wood deck platformToday’s post is a 2020 Buyer’s Guide for Above-Ground Pools, and this year, In The Swim has reaffirmed our commitment to having the best selection of above-ground pool packages available online, with 9 models to choose from.

Whether this is your first pool, or have decided to replace an aging pool purchased long ago, you will appreciate the quality materials, engineered construction and ease of installation from our 2020 pools line-up.


Let’s start with our comparison chart, which allows you to see compare all models at a glance. Pools with wider rails and uprights are stronger, and Buttresses are side supports (kickers) used on some oval pools.

Our pool comparison chart also shows what comes with each pool package. The Weekender models have it all, liner/ladder/filter, but the other models are sold ‘bare-bones’, and allow you to select liners, step/ladder, and filter system, separately.
