Choosing The Perfect Swimming Pool

With so much variety available on the market for swimming pools, it can be a little challenging to know which one to go with or what options are available to you. In choosing the perfect swimming pool, the questions you need to consider are who is going to be using it, what is it going to be used for, and how often. A swimming pool is a huge investment after all so it needs to be able to meet your unique needs.

Above Ground Pools

An above-ground swimming pool for Luzerne PA residents and those who live beyond Luzerne is often the most cost-effective of all your options and is easier to winterize than an in-ground pool. Still, above-ground pools come with a limit in size, shape and depth. That aside, they aren’t made to last nearly as long as an in-ground pool is due to their vinyl liners. If you are simply looking for an inexpensive pool, then an above-ground pool is most likely what you are looking for.

In-Ground Pools

Unlike above-ground pools, purchasing an in-ground pool by a Luzerne PA pool builder offers a much larger variety of options from everything to size, shape, material, and landscaping. Due to their versatility and durability, they are a serious investment that once installed, can last a lifetime with the proper maintenance and care. However, this also means that a home with an in-ground pool will add much more valuable to your home on the market.

In-ground pools can either be vinyl-lined, concrete, or fiberglass:

Concrete Pools

These pools are truly custom-made and can easily be made into any shape or size needed. However, they do take a little more time and money to install. Still, concrete is the most durable material and can be totally customized with all types of features.

Fiberglass Pools

Fiberglass pools are made from a pre-molded fiberglass ‘bowl’ that is inserted into a hole. They are limited in size and shape but tend to be both durable and cost-effective.

Vinyl Pools

Vinyl pools as compared to concrete pools are more limited in size and shape, however, there are a wide variety of shapes and sizes available. When compared to fiberglass pools there can be more of a variety. Vinyl pools are also the most cost-effective. The pool linings come in many different patterns and colors. They are a great choice and loved by all who choose to have a vinyl pool installed.
