Pool Installation Above Ground Pool

By Lisa Kennedy

Over the years, above ground tarn construction has been undergoing developmental phases so as to ensure construction of quality tarns. A tarn installed above the ground used to be a sorry alternative to the real deal. These days, if a deck surrounds the above ground pool, it is easy to mistake it for an in-ground model. This forms part of the considerations in pool installation.

Above ground, tarns can come in different shapes, but the most common shapes are round or oval. You can measure the size of the above ground tarn that you would like by taking a garden hose and lay it out in the diameter of the tarn you would like on the ground in your backyard.

Above ground, tarns feature a frame and supports. When these are made from steel, they work just like Superman, keeping the tarn sturdy regardless of the conditions. Also, these resist corrosion, so they will look great and last longer. A pump is needed to circulate the water and to be most effective; it should be at least one horsepower for an 18-foot pool. Sand filters are more effective at cleaning water, so select one of these.

A strong coping system fitted with a replaceable vinyl cover is the best choice. Some companies use a patented system that eliminates coping failure. During seasonal freezing and thawing in some geographic areas, the deck can move, causing the coping to fail. Having a tarn that prevents this from occurring reduces worry on the part of the homeowner. Each spring, the tarn can be opened as usual without requiring any major repairs.

After you have obtained your permission and contacted your homeowner's insurance company for additional questions, you can hop on the Internet and surf around for tarn products and prices. Prepare a list of things that please you and things that you do not want. Compare prices against one another. Some companies offer do-it-yourself tarn construction kits in which you can order package deals but mix and match tarn accessories. Have some fun with it.

In some cases, a precast pad is needed for the filter or an optional heater. Installation should be included with the standard services. Customers will need to arrange water fill via truck or hydrant, but the installers should perform the actual service. When the installation is complete, construction debris should be removed. Leaving it in the yard creates an eyesore and poses dangers to humans and animals.

Once the tarn is filled, the installer should take the water to its store for testing. If there are any concerns, the pool owner must learn how to address them with chemicals or using other methods. Many water issues are only temporary, but if they are not resolved, its accessories may not operate properly.

The tarn company you choose can help take you through the rest of the process. It is important to leave the bigger decisions to the professionals, but equally important for you to stay involved in the tarn construction process. Once the tarn installation is complete, you can swim anytime you want.
