ABOVE GROUND POOL INSTALLATION IN POUGHKEEPSIE NY
Having a new above ground swimming pool for the family is money well spent. The great memories created in your own backyard makes it all worth it. An investment like this is definitely maximum fun per dollar. All that is required is a few hours work and you will be rewarded with decades of good times.
Many people wonder if they are capable of installing their own pool. Fact is most of you purchase a pool and dive right into the set up, and nearly 75% of all pools we sell are self installed. So the short answer is “yes you can.” To set your mind at ease we are going to discuss briefly what is involved in the installation process. Hopefully you will get a better understanding if this can be accomplished by you or if a professional pool installer is needed.
Installation of an above ground pool is divided into two phases. The first phase is ground preparation. A swimming pool must be constructed of a level surface, so your pool placement area must be as flat as possible. Because most desired pool locations are fairly flat, this is usually just a matter of removing grass and leveling the earth slightly. This part of the installation process is the most difficult because of the labor involved. Moving sod and dirt requires the use of a shovel, but a sod cutter or a small bobcat can make the job easier. If desired, these tools can be rented hourly at any equipment rental outlet throughout Poughkeepsie NY.
The second half of the installation is much easier but a few more tools are required for completion. From this point out, building the pool itself is much like a giant erector set. First leveling the framework with a simple carpenters level is all that is needed. The remainder of the installation is primary made up of screwing many smaller metal components together to complete the pool. A cordless drill will make
this much easier.
The instruction manuals give a list of tools required for completion but I will say the they all consist of typical hand tools that most people have in their household tool box. I may be forgetting a few but they are a shovel, level, razor knife, duct tape, tube of silicone, pliers, tape measure, spray paint, hammer, screw drivers, cordless drill with various bits and a gallon of water for you to drink. Most above ground pools are installed during the hottest months of the year here in Poughkeepsie NY, so remember to stay cool, stay hydrated and take your time.
For the DIY crowd, installation is completed in only a day or weekend depending on pool size. If this does not appeal to you, there are professional pool installers that can do a fantastic job and typically have your pool installation completed in a single day. If this sounds like a better way to go for you, simply call our sales department for help locating a pool installer or check Craigslist or other local directories in your area.

Websitewww.cityofpoughkeepsie.comPoughkeepsie (/pəˈkɪpsi/ pə-KIP-see), officially the City of Poughkeepsie, is a city in the state of New York, United States, which is the county seat of Dutchess County. As of the 2010 census it had a population of 32,736. Poughkeepsie is in the Hudson Valley midway between New York City and Albany, and is part of the New York metropolitan area. The name derives from a word in the Wappinger language, roughly U-puku-ipi-sing, meaning "the reed-covered lodge by the little-water place", referring to a spring or stream feeding into the Hudson River south of the present downtown area.
Poughkeepsie is known[by whom?] as "The Queen City of the Hudson". It was settled in the 17th century by the Dutch and became New York's second capital shortly after the American Revolution. It was chartered as a city in 1854. Major bridges in the city include the Walkway over the Hudson, a former railroad bridge (originally called the Poughkeepsie Bridge), which re-opened as a public walkway on October 3, 2009; and the Mid-Hudson Bridge, a major thoroughfare built in 1930 that carries U.S. Route 44 (concurrent with State Route 55) over the Hudson. The city of Poughkeepsie lies in New York's 18th congressional district.

Statue of Thomas Dongan (the 2nd Earl of Limerick from 1698) in Dongan Park in Poughkeepsie, unveiled in June 1930The site of Poughkeepsie was purchased from the Indians in 1686 by Robert Sanders, an Englishman, and Myndert Harmense Van Den Bogaerdt, a New Netherland-born Dutchman. The first settlers were the families of Barent Baltus Van Kleeck and Hendrick Jans van Oosterom. The settlement grew quickly, and the Reformed Church of Poughkeepsie was established by 1720. The community was set off from the town of Poughkeepsie when it became an incorporated village on 27 March 1799. The city of Poughkeepsie was chartered on 28 March 1854.Outside of municipal designations, the city and town of Poughkeepsie are generally viewed as a single place and are commonly referred to collectively as "Poughkeepsie", with a combined population of approximately 75,000.
Spared from battle during the American Revolution, Poughkeepsie became the second capital of New York. In 1788, the Ratification Convention for New York State, which included Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and George Clinton, assembled at the courthouse on Market Street, debated, and ratified the United States Constitution. With its ratification, New York entered the new union as the eleventh of the original thirteen colonies to join together as the United States of America. In 1799, a new seal was created for Poughkeepsie.
Early on, Poughkeepsie was a major center for whale rendering, and during the 19th century, the industry flourished through shipping, hatteries, paper mills, and several breweries along the Hudson River, including some owned by Matthew Vassar, founder of Vassar College. Due to the area's natural beauty and proximity to New York City, families such as the Astors, Rogers, and Vanderbilts built palatial weekend homes nearby. The Vanderbilt mansion, located several miles up the Hudson from Poughkeepsie in the town of Hyde Park, is registered as a National Historic Site; it is considered to be a sterling example of the mansions built by American industrialists during the late 19th century. The city is home to the oldest continuously operating entertainment venue in the state, the Bardavon 1869 Opera House (see below).
