Does having an above-ground pool have any impact on home insurance?

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Alexah on March 2, 2021

I want to get an above-ground pool for my backyard, but I don't want to pay more for insurance. Will buying a pool raise my rates?

Having an above-ground pool can impact your eligibility for homeowners insurance, and it can also increase the cost of your insurance due to the liability exposure. Most insurance companies will require restricted access to the pool, which means you may have to employ safety measures such as locked gates and fencing.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
