Above ground pools are available on Amazon
Want to turn your yard into a summer oasis without digging up the entire lawn? Amazon has the shimmering, sparkling pool your heart desires, and now’s the time to snag one. The best above-ground accommodations often quadruple the price (we checked) or sell out in warm weather. Here we help you to find the best pool for your garden and lifestyle. We found big, best-selling steel frames, a roomy inflatable ring pool, and a splurge-worthy hardwall model — we even threw in a collapsing $34 doggy pool for Buster for fun. Staycation here we come!
Round steel frame pool

We love that the frame is rust resistant because So, it holds water! It’s straightforward with two bodies and easy to set up for its debut, and best of all, no tools are required. One of the 3,400 five-star fans wrote, “Super easy assembly, high quality, HUGE pool!”
Another enthused: “Wow I’m impressed!!! They shipped it the same day and we received it extremely early. The pool is fantastic – very sturdy and easy to set up. … Extremely happy with our pool and Amazon customer service.”
Steel frame oval pool
It’s important to think about your space when choosing a pool. And even if your garden calls for a smaller option, you still want something permanent that you can actually use. “This pool is worth it, it’s worth it,” declared one fan. “Best investment we’ve made for the hot summer months….We have a small backyard in Chicago and the size was just right!”
Another loves it for working out: “We added a floor mat underneath for the gym…so when I’m in the pool to work out it’s like being in a gym…Adding a bungee cord makes me swim even better than I can with one.” real endless pool, because if I need to stop and take a break, the water is calm (no water pressure in front of my face).”
Rectangular pool with steel frame
Intex 18’x9’x52″ Ultra XTR pool set with sand filter pump
If you’re really serious about it, consider this whale of a pool that comes with a sand pump (so you’ll save money over time because the brand says you don’t have to buy expensive replacement filters). The 18-footer is nearly 60% cheaper and holds 4,545 gallons of water. It comes with a high quality non-slip ladder, top cover and floor cloth. Includes a two-year warranty.

At nearly 60% off, this is a great deal on a fantastic Intex swimming pool built to withstand serious summer activity. “Pool party time!!!” wrote one delighted buyer. “Thanks to Amazon I was able to afford this wonderful retreat from the heat. I couldn’t take another summer plus, now I’m the cool grandma.”
Another big fan added: “This thing is awesome. Why did I wait so long to buy one?!”
Solid wall pool
Lake Effect Pools

Installing a durable, hardwall pool like this might be difficult for the average person, buyers say, but what a result. “This was the best decision our family has ever made,” enthused one fan. “It took some effort to build, although the earthworks were the bulk of the work. But the reward was worth it. Great value for money and being able to go onto our deck and cool off in that sparkling blue water is amazing. The company was great to deal with and quick to respond. Shipping was fast and very responsive. …Will recommend it to everyone I know!!”
