Above Ground Pools
In-ground attitude. Above-ground price.
Buds stopped selling above-ground pools a number of years ago—we were tired of tin cans pretending to be pools, and so were our customers.
The Metric, an above-ground model made by Radiant Pools, won us back.
We love the look of this pool. The fact that it can install virtually anywhere. Its non-prorated structural lifetime warranty—even for winter damage. And its super-strong 2-inch thick insulated walls.
If you’re a big dreamer with a moderate budget, the Metric is for you.
An above-ground pool you’ll love for a lifetime.
A pool for every site. Sloped yard? Existing deck? Narrow space? No problem. The Metric can be installed partially in-ground to cope with slopes and blend seamlessly with existing decks. The pool comes in seven round sizes, from 16 feet to 33 feet in diameter, and new freeform or oval sizes.
Best-in-business warranty. Above-ground pools are traditionally vulnerable to ice and snow damage - which is why most manufacturers don’t offer a winter damage warranty. Radiant has so much confidence in the strength of its above-ground model to withstand the wickedest of winters that it offers the best warranty in the business: a lifetime promise of quality that’s transferrable to the next owner. For most of Buds’ customers, this warranty seals the deal.
In-ground attitude. Smooth walls and an internal spline system give the pool a streamlined, contemporary look that blends beautifully into your backyard. Add-ons abound. Upgrade to a cartridge filter…a saltwater system…LED lighting…add fencing…and create a custom look with a premium 4-inch bullnose coping.
Its blue…and green. The Metric’s insulated walls are rated R-10, saving you money on heating, extending the pool season, and reducing your environmental footprint.
Pass the salt. Many traditional above-ground pools are incompatible with salt water chlorination systems - but not the Metric.
Perfect-fit cover. The Metric’s lightweight, hardwearing winter cover easily locks in a track, which means no cable to winch and less cleanup in the spring. And with the Metric, even the cover’s covered - with a 20-year pro-rated warranty.
It is simply brilliant.
