Above-ground pools vs In-ground pools

Nowadays you hear a lot of “I want a swimming pool for my garden” but you haven’t stopped to think about what kind of pool would suit your plot. Is there room for building work? What shape should it be? What material is best? These types of questions should be answered before you start looking for a pool. This post, therefore, compares above-ground pools and in-ground swimming pools .

Above ground pools

This type of pool has become very fashionable lately as there are many different models available with different materials and finishes. In addition, thanks to constant innovation, no building work is required in the space where they are to be installed as, thanks to innovative fastening systems, such as the omega or oblique systems, among others, they offer greater safety and resistance so that the durability of the product is longer.


All Gre pools are adapted for easy and quick assembly and disassembly. It is possible for two or three people to assemble the pool in one day.

Inground swimming pools

In-ground swimming pools are perhaps the most common, in sports centers, hotels…, in general in places where bathing is expected to take place all year round, but, indeed, they can also be found in the grounds, gardens… of private homes.


Make it clear that building work is necessary. They require more planning for the construction project because it is not enough to build the pool on just any piece of land, it must be compact without any risk of landslides. In addition, permission must be sought from the local council where the pool is to be built.


To conclude, if you don’t mind building work, which involves a higher cost and the need to have a large space, in-ground pools are the best option. On the other hand, if you don’t want to do any building work, assemble it easily and quickly, and you value how it combines with your house, above-ground pools are the best choice. It should be noted that both types of pools, with proper maintenance, have very similar durability.

  1. Le 18 février 2021 j’ai reçu ma commande d’une piscine GRE BORA BORA (5m x 3m) hors sol de chez AZIALO.
    Je l’ai installé en avril et mai et mise en service le 7 juin 2021.
    Le 28 août 2021, la pompe AR-125 tombait en panne la veille de mon départ en vacances.
    Je suis allé immédiatement acheter une pompe vide cave afin de faire tourner l’eau sans la filtrer sous la bâche à bulle. Après 2 mois d’absence, l’eau est restée claire.
    En septembre, AZIALO m’a renvoyé une nouvelle pompe sous garantie. J’ai mis la piscine en hivernage et réinstallé la nouvelle pompe AR-125 le 18 mai 2022. Etant un ancien cadre PSA, j’ai été surpris en inspectant la pompe en panne que le rotor pivote dans 2 cages en plastique. C’est en fait de l’obsolescence programmée. Ce type de pompe d’origine RPC ne peut durer que quelques semaine.
    J’ai programmé le cycle sur 1h de fonction et 2h de repos en changeant le filtre 1 fois/semaine.
    Or, je lis sur votre site que ce type de pompe est destiné à un aquarium. Vous m’avez donc vendu un aquarium. Merci de me donner votre avis et ce que je dois faire pour continuer à me baigner sans souci car je crains malgré tout que cette pompe suive le destin de la précédence.
    J’ai déjà demandé quel système était le mieux adapté à ce type de piscine mais j’attends encore la réponse depuis plus de 2 mois.
    En attendant de vous lire, Cordialement
