Swimming pools offer the promise of hours of relaxation in your own oasis, but for many families, installing an in-ground pool just isn’t an option. Don’t think you have to give up on your backyard getaway dreams, though: Above-ground pools can be installed in under an hour, on your own, at a fraction of the price. Options range from small set-ups perfect for kids to splash in, to deeper pools that an entire family can cool off in without crowding each other.
