Frequently Asked Questions About Garden City, NY Semi-Inground Pool Installation

A swimming pool offers a wealth of benefits. It can turn a ho-hum yard into a useful, inviting space, provide hours of entertainment, offer welcome relief from the summer’s heat, and can increase the value of your Nassau County property. With so many advantages, you’re seriously considering installing a backyard swimming pool; however, you aren’t quite sure that you want to spend the tens of thousands of dollars on an inground pool, yet you want something that’s sturdier and more visually appealing than a standard aboveground pool.

There’s a solution that offers the best of both worlds: a semi-inground pool installation.

Wondering if you should take the plunge on this innovative type of swimming pool? Read on to find answers to the most commonly asked questions about this type of pool from the premier Garden City, NY pool company.

Q: What is a semi-inground pool?

Also referred to as an “Optimum Pool”, a semi-inground pool is exactly what it sounds like: a backyard swimming pool that is partially installed in the ground and partially installed above the ground. In other words, it offers the best of both worlds: the durability and quality of a traditional inground pool with the more affordable price tag and quick installation of an above-ground swimming pool.

Q: Why would someone consider a semi-inground pool installation?

A: There are several reasons why Nassau County homeowners opt for semi-inground pool installation over a standard inground pool or above-ground pool. They’re the perfect solution for yards where installing a traditional gunite pool or fiberglass pool wouldn’t be possible; sloped yards, extremely rocky yards, or in areas where the water table is high and a fully inground pool isn’t possible.

Even in yards that are relatively flat and that aren’t very rocky, Nassau County homeowners opt for semi-inground pool installation because it’s quicker, easier, and generally speaking, more affordable than a traditional inground pool.

Q: What are the benefits of a semi-inground pool installation?

A: A semi-inground pool offers several benefits over a standard inground or above-ground pool. They’re easier and faster to install than inground swimming pools, and the cost is usually significantly lower. When compared to a traditional above-ground pool, a semi-inground pool is easier to customize, is more durable, lasts longer, and is more aesthetically pleasing.

Q: How much does semi-inground pool installation cost?

A: The cost of installation depends on several factors, such as the size, shape, and style of the swimming pool, the materials it’s constructed of, and the Garden City, NY pool company that you hire. With that said, however, a semi-inground installation is more affordable than installing an inground pool.

Q: How long do semi-inground pools last?

A: Again, it depends on several factors, such as the materials the pool is constructed of, the condition of your Nassau County yard, and how the pool is used. With that said, however, as long as it’s properly maintained, semi-inground pools can last up to 20 years. As a comparison, a standard above-ground pool, even when properly cared for, lasts about 7 to 15 years on average.

Some information about Garden City, NY

Garden City is an incorporated village in the Town of Hempstead in Nassau County, on Long Island, in New York, United States. As of the 2010 census, the population of the village was 22,371.

In 1869, the Irish-born millionaire Alexander Turney Stewart bought a portion of the lightly populated Hempstead Plains. In a letter, Stewart described his intentions for Garden City:

Having been informed that interested parties are circulating statements to the effect that my purpose in desiring to purchase the Hempstead Plains is to devote them to the erection of tenement houses, and public charities of a like character, etc. I consider it proper to state that my only object in seeking to acquire these lands is to devote them to the usual purposes for which such lands, so located, should be applied that is, open them by constructing extensive public roads, laying out the lands in parcels for sale to actual settlers, and erecting at various points attractive buildings and residences, so that a barren waste may speedily be covered by a population desirable in every respect as neighbour taxpayers and as citizens. In doing this I am prepared and would be willing to expend several millions of dollars.

The central attraction of the new community was the Garden City Hotel, designed by the acclaimed firm of McKim, Mead & White. Although the original structure, as well as that which replaced it at the end of the 19th century, were torn down years ago after a fire, a rebuilt hotel still stands on the original grounds, as do many nearby Victorian homes. Access to Garden City was provided by the Central Railroad of Long Island, another Stewart project which he undertook at the same time. The railroad’s Hempstead Branch opened in 1873.
