On Ground Custom Swimming Pools

Ideal for the budget conscious family who wants the look of an in-ground pool without the in-ground price tag attached. Vinyl lined on-ground and semi in-ground pools can be the perfect solution.

Using an engineered approach to design and construction, semi-in-ground and on-ground pools utilize basic in-ground pool technologies of shape, rough pool structure and finished look. These pools can be built in yards that slope because the pool can be installed completely on grade, or partially in the ground and partially out.

The main differences are simple. The pool wall, equipment and materials are like that of an in-ground pool but the on-ground semi-in-ground pools have no deck support like the X-Braces on our in-ground pools and they have a sand bottom instead of a concrete bottom. These pools are also subject to the same installation conditions as in-ground and above ground pools; a building permit is required and there are fencing codes to comply with. Your St. Lawrence Pools sales associate can assist you with the necessary details.
