Summer is Short—Dive Into it With a New Pool!
According to the CDC, swimming is the fourth most popular recreational activity in the United States and the most popular recreational activity for children and teens (ages 7-17). Swimming is good, clean fun for everyone!
One of the best ways to put thoughts of winter out of your mind and take advantage of the upper Midwest’s fantastic summer weather is to install a pool on your property. It turns out deciding to put in a pool is easy, but choosing between an above-ground pool or an inground pool requires some thought!
Without further ado, we’ll jump into the deep end and discuss the pros and cons of both models. Remember, if you’re considering putting in a swimming pool in North Dakota or the surrounding states, Valhalla Spas & Pools is here to provide superior products and installation services.

The Benefits of an Inground Pool
Inground swimming pools were once a luxury afforded only rich people living in warm areas of the country. Historically, built-in pools in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Montana were fairly rare occurrences. Recent improvements in materials, as well as production and installation methods, made inground pools more affordable.
However, it wasn’t until the founders of Valhalla Spas & Pools got sick and tired of seeing people in other areas of the country spend time basking in the sun and splashing around in their backyard pools, while we settled for soaking our feet in a plastic tub on the deck, that inground pools began to pop up across the region. Now, even you can have an inground pool on your property.
Your Pool, Built Your Way
The beauty of an inground pool is that it can be custom built to suit your tastes, lifestyle, property and budget. You can add special touches, such as a fountain, diving board, underwater lighting for night swimming, and so much more.
A below-ground pool is a permanent investment that will add value to your home. Plus, it’s a great incentive to live a healthier lifestyle! You can spend the afternoons relaxing on a sun chair or floating in the water on your pool recliner. Underground pools can be built long enough so you can swim laps, or deep enough to make diving possible. Splashing around with the kids or doing water aerobics or resistance training can be done in very modest-sized pools!
- Customizable with lights, fountains, diving boards and more.
- Adds value to your property.
- Incentivizes a healthier lifestyle.
- Can be made deep enough for diving.
Why Choose an Above Ground Pool?
At Valhalla Spas & Pools, we feature above-ground pools in dozens of shapes and sizes, including pools with reinforced galvanized steel walls and durable vinyl liners, and high-quality resins pools that are extremely corrosion resistant. Both come with everything needed, including pump motors and filtration systems, so your family can be out swimming in your new backyard oasis in no time.
Above ground swimming pools are constructed on top of the ground, so it will be easier to clean due to the fact they attract less dirt and critters. When weekly pool maintenance is required, you’ll find the pool can be cleaned faster compared to an inground pool. If a repair needs to be done, it’s significantly easier to fix, being the structure is on top of the ground and not built into the ground.
Fast, Easy and Affordable!
While most above-ground pools are installed completely above ground, some homeowners opt to have theirs set partially in the soil. What attracts most people to above-ground models is that they are quick and easy to install once the ground has been prepared. Depending on your property and the style of pool you purchase, an inground pool can be set up in as little as a day.
Because this type of pool is mobile, you are able to move it to another area of your property if needed, and can even take it with you when you decide to sell your home! Aboveground pools are less expensive to install and easier to maintain than their inground counterparts.
- More affordable to purchase.
- Can be installed above ground or partially below ground.
- Can be set up in as little as a day!
- They are mobile—take it with you when you move.
