While there are many sizes and forms of above ground pools, they are all fairly big.  Take the example above.  This bad boy is available on Amazon for about $1500.  In order to know the weight of the pool, we’ll need to do a little bit of math.  (Don’t worry, it’s not too hard).

Size: Size: 24′ Length x 12′ Width x 52″ Height.
Weight of empty pool: 464.7 lbs.
Water Capacity: 8,403 gallons
Weight of one gallon of water: 8.34 pounds
Weight of water in pool 70,081.02 pounds
-10% for displacement/splashing 7,008 pounds=63,073.02 lbs
Add empty pool weight= 63,537.72 pounds

Conclusion: Even without any swimmers or a single blown-up floaty toy, an above ground pool weighs more than me.
