Luxury Accessories For Your Above Ground Pool

Friday, May 10, 2013

When you add an above ground pool to your backyard, it’s only the beginning of the fun. You can look forward to years of enjoyment in your pool. Adding luxury pool accessories is the best way to ensure that you get the most out of your pool.

Floating Chairs and Lounges

One of the best ways to enjoy your pool is by using one of these comfortable accessories. Some chairs and lounges are equipped with foot and headrests to ensure total relaxation. The best material to look for is an advanced technology foam that resists cracking, peeling and fading. These long lasting models ensure years of use. Some chairs even come with canopies to keep the glaring sun from becoming too bothersome. Kids love the animal shaped versions and you can always add a floating pool caddy to keep ice cold lemonade conveniently at hand.

Lighting and Fountains

A little illumination can make all the difference when you want to swim at night. With the right lighting scheme, you can turn your backyard into an oasis that’s perfect for an outdoor party even when the pool isn’t in use. Lights may be placed along the rim of the pool or may even rest in the water. Some lights are equipped with multiple colors and provide a veritable light show in your own backyard.

Adding a fountain is another excellent way to enhance the appeal of your above ground pool. Fountains come in an amazing variety of types and sizes. Some look like flowers and spray in attractive tiers. Others may spin to create a water show that rivals professionally produced displays. It’s also possible to purchase a combined fountain and light accessory for a highly coordinated look.


This luxury accessory has the benefit of also being extremely useful. When you add a shower to your outdoor pool, you won’t have to run between the house and pool. Some showers are solar powered to help you maximize your energy efficiency. They connect directly to a garden hose, ensuring easy installation.


Another popular accessory for above ground pools is a slide. Whether the slide is a quick, straight shot or a twisting funnel, this accessory adds endless hours of fun to any pool. Really great slides are not cheap, but the investment is typically very much worthwhile.


Often, people rely on the sun to heat the water in their pool. That’s great if you live in a place where there are plenty of hot days. However, if your weather is cooler or if you simply prefer your pool water to be a bit warmer, adding a heater is the ideal answer. Heaters come in a wide variety of styles. Some are powered by natural gas while others are powered by the sun. Still other heaters are wood burning. With so many options, you’ll easily find the right heater for your pool.

Steps and Ladders

A ladder is indispensable with almost every above ground pool. The most basic models are relatively inexpensive, but if you’d like something a little more deluxe, it’s possible to find quite elaborate steps and ladders. Some feature security gates to enhance the safety of your pool. To add steps that perform double duty, choose a wedding cake style that doubles as a seat in the water. Many steps and ladders also include handrails that add elegance and convenience to your pool.

Decks and Fencing

A deck is an excellent way to extend the size of your backyard play area. The deck system you choose may come in a variety of sizes and may be built from an array of materials. Wood, vinyl and other materials are common. Some decks are even carpeted to provide a no slip surface for wet feet.

Fencing is an important safety consideration that can keep unauthorized people from accessing your pool. That makes having a fence a necessity. However, there’s no need for your fence to look utilitarian. Fences can greatly enhance the look of your pool area while also providing a useful service. Look for stylish fencing options that suit the atmosphere you’re creating in your backyard oasis.
