Swimming in Options: Your Guide to the Best Inground Pool Choices

Best Inground Pool Types

So, you’ve been saving up for a long time to get your dream pool and now it’s finally time to start planning. Congratulations! 

Now comes the fun part of considering what type of pool you want to purchase and have installed. One of the decisions you’ll come to the quickest is that an inground pool is your best option.

However, the decisions don’t stop there. In fact, there are several different types of inground pools that you should do your research on.

Here are the four best inground pool types for you to consider and see which one is the right fit for your needs.

1. Concrete

If you’re looking for a durable option, you can’t go wrong with choosing the old-fashioned method of installing a concrete pool.

The concrete is also fairly easy to maintain as you can easily replaster any visible cracks that come with the normal wear and tear. Thus limiting the amount of additional pool construction that’s needed.

From there, you’re only left with choosing the spray-on finish that you wish to apply to the concrete frame in your pool.

2. Fiberglass

This method is a bit different than the others that are mentioned in this article. If you were to purchase a fiberglass pool, it would be created and molded in a factory, then sent to your residence from there.

Not only is this a cost-efficient option for you and your family, but it can also be installed in the shortest amount of time (after construction, of course).

The biggest thing to consider is whether or not your backyard has the space for the installation process itself. Can a crane (which is how it’s delivered) move, much less fit, inside of your backyard?

If the answer is a resounding “no”, then the fiberglass pool probably isn’t your best option. You wouldn’t want to pay all that money just to find out the pool you’ve purchased can’t be installed in your house.

3. Vinyl

Second only to the concrete solution, vinyl is among the most popular siding for your in-ground pool.

It’s perfect for almost any size or shape of the pool that you’re looking to create and fits perfectly alongside it. The main setback with vinyl lining is that it can be easily-punctured or ripped. 

However, if you set yourself up with heavy-duty vinyl, that shouldn’t pose too much of a threat to your pool’s integrity. Speak with your pool expert to see if vinyl siding would be ideal for what you’re hoping to get out of your pool.
