Things to Consider When Adding a Deck to Your Above Ground Pool

A pool deck is not only helpful for entering and exiting an above ground pool, but its a great place to relax and socialize. This video discusses things to consider when choosing the best pool deck for your above ground pool.

Things to Consider When Adding a Pool Deck

  • How many people should it accommodate?
  • Will children use it?
  • Does it need shading?
  • How much outdoor furniture will it hold?

Answering these questions will help you determine the location and size of the above ground pool deck.

Above Ground Pool Deck Safety

Adding a deck to your above ground pool can enhance the appearance of your pool and backyard. Ensure all safety measures have been taken into consideration when adding a deck.

Adding a fence around the perimeter of the pool sections that are not connected to the deck, is a must. This prevents children from climbing over the pool wall and into the pool.

If you plan to have steps leading from the ground up to the deck, make sure that the entrance gate is self-latching and has a lock. If you plan to use the ladder to access the deck, make sure it is firmly attached and can be pulled up and put into a locked position when not in use.

Adding these safety features will provide peace of mind and prevent swimmers from entering the pool when unsupervised.
