If you are in the market to get an above ground pool for your yard and property, then there are some things you should probably look into first.

1. Surfaces and Basket Cleaning

Doing this every few days or so will help keep your water clean and algae free, Also, make sure to clean out your pool’s basket often to avoid its contents backing up and flowing back into your clean pool.
2. Check Your Filter Often
The filter is the beating, living heart of your pool. It is the centerpiece that circulates your water, keeping it fresh and clean all season long. Filters require regular maintenance to ensure that dirt and debris do not build up and send it into disrepair. That is not an easy or a cheap fix. Making sure your filter is maintained regularly will not only save you money but it will also keep your pool in perfect condition.
3. Maintain Chemical Levels
All pools require a certain mix of chemicals to keep the water safe to swim in. pH levels, alkalinity, chlorine and calcium are just some of the things used to keep the chemical levels of your pool safe. Every so often, have your pool supplier check the levels of your pool’s chemicals so that your new pool does not become infested with algae and other harmful things of this nature.
4. Winterize it Right
Even in Mississippi, it is critical you winterize your above ground pool. Leftover water can freeze pipes and cause significant damage to your property. The process of preparing your pool for winter is fairly easy and inexpensive. Your pool supplier will help you through the process so that your pool is safe all winter and, most importantly, is ready to be reopened when summer rolls around again.
