Above Ground pool placement is also important. Sunny areas will help keep your pool water warm, but you’ll want to keep the pool away from windy areas, as wind blowing over a pool can greatly increase evaporation. As a general rule, pools should be 8-10′ from trees. If removing trees and stumps happen to be in an ideal location for an above ground pool they should be pulled and removed before the pool is installed. Stumps being ground down can cause major problems with the pool liner in the future.
