Thinking of Installing a Pool? Which Kind?
|December 16, 2011||Posted by h20articles under Pool Reviews|
Yeah, I know it’s winter but it’s actually a good time to start thinking of building that swimming pool your family has been begging you for ;0) When it’s hot out, everyone wants a pool and so pool companies are swamped and busy and may not get to your pool job until it’s almost not worth it! Kinda like Christmas shopping in September…should have done that!
Anyways, there are a few different types of swimming pools you could install. Let’s discuss a few options…
1. Fiberglass pool-These provide a quick and easy installation. They come preformed and are craned into your ready prepped yard. There are many different types and styles to choose from providing you with a deep and and a shallow end. These pools also have great flex to them which is perfect if you are installing in a ground that may be a little shaky. They are very low maintenance in terms of chemicals and long term repairs. They look gorgeous now a days as well. A drawback is that they are a little bit more expensive initially but will save you in long term costs.
2. Liner pool-These are great priced pools. They can be built in virtually any shape and size you wish! Liners will need to eventually be replaced but that also allows you to change up the look of your pool with different colours and styles of liners. There are a TON of patterns to chose from as well. Liners will eventually have to be replaced because they do wear out and fade due to weathering and chemicals.
3. Concrete pool-These are for sure the most expensive pools to install and they are the most expensive to eventually repair. BUT, they do allow you to do some pretty great design techniques such as beach entrances and fancy corners and curves. Concrete pools can also be a little rough on your bathing suits and skin but overall they aren’t too bad.
Don’t wait too long…only 5 more months till pool season! Do your research and find what will best suite your family. Digging and start at first sign of thaw!
