Hard-sided above ground swimming pools are made using a rolled sheet metal frame. The metal frame is typically steel, but some pools are made with aluminum. The shape and structure of the metal frame is reinforced with top and bottom rails, and uprights; typically constructed from steel or resin. Inside of the metal frame is a heavy-duty vinyl liner responsible for holding your pool water. While metal-framed pools are considerably stronger and more durable than soft-sided options, installation can be they are more involved and time consuming.
Resin & Resin Hybrid Pools
