Should you choose an in-ground or semi in-ground pool?

13 June 2022

Whether you want to have a good time with friends, have fun with your kids or simply cool off during the dog days of summer, an in-ground pool is a must in your back yard. There are several different types of in-ground pools to choose from, including pools with vinyl liners, concrete pools and insulated concrete form (ICF) pools. Often, certain constraints may prevent you from installing an in-ground pool in your yard. In these cases, a semi in-ground pool just might be the ideal solution for enjoying the summer season to the fullest.


What exactly is a semi in-ground pool?


A semi in-ground pool is a concrete or ICF pool that’s slightly raised. As a result, the surface of the water is above ground level. You can surround the exposed part of your semi in-ground pool with imitation wood, concrete or even stone. This type of pool is ideal if your back yard is on a slope or if it’s so rocky that it would require significant blasting in order to perform the installation. A semi in-ground pool represents a great compromise between an in-ground pool and an above-ground pool.


Safety first with a semi in-ground or in-ground pool


Whether you end up choosing an in-ground or semi in-ground pool, it’s important to enclose it and to include all of the necessary elements to ensure everyone’s safety. Val-Morin Pools follows all current municipal regulations to the letter so that clients can enjoy a pleasant, worry-free dip in the pool anytime they want, throughout the summer season.
