How To Choose An In-Ground Pool


50 Year Warranty On All Swimming Pools

Ahhhhhhh....Your very own backyard oasis. Fun in the sun with your family and friends. Sounds great, doesn't it! You bet it does. But there are so many in-ground choices. Vinyl liner, concrete, fiberglass.

Well first of all, a little research; and that's exactly what we've done. We've put together some valuable information designed to help you make the decision as to what might be the best pool for you. There are so many factors to consider, including vinyl liner vs. fiberglass construction, your budget, the size of your lot, how much time and money you want to spend on maintenance and operational costs.

Like a concrete pool, the vinyl liner in-ground pool is another construction project in your backyard. Because the pool is assembled in your yard, this process can take as long as 6 weeks. The contractor digs a hole in your backyard, assembles steel walls, which are lined with a material similar to a shower curtain. While vinyl is a very durable material in relation to chemical resistance, its performance under direct sunlight is all together different. In time your liner will fade, become stained, and tears will form in high stress areas, like the corners.

The shiny fiberglass pool surface is completely non-porous, making it extremely inhospitable to the growth of algae. Also dirt can't adhere to the smooth fiberglass surface and falls to the bottom where the bottom circulator (main drain) draws it into the filter system, so far fewer chemicals are needed to sustain water quality and maintenance time is reduced by as much as 90% - making your pool more fun and less work. Take note the need for fewer chemicals translates into dramatic savings over the years.

FIBERGLASS POOLS (Read More Why You Should Choose Fiberglass)
Fiberglass pools are quality factory built products, not a project. They are constructed under controlled conditions in a factory, not your backyard. Unlike a vinyl liner pool which can take most of the summer to build, a fiberglass pool is installed in a matter of days. Fiberglass construction techniques have been perfected since fiberglass pools were first introduced over 50 years ago. You will have a durable gel coat surface that will never need maintenance, and best of all - no liner to replace - ever! If you're looking for strength, fiberglass is the answer. Fiberglass is over 17 times stronger than concrete. It will not deteriorate like concrete, tear like vinyl or rust and conduct temperature extremes like steel. Fiberglass is the choice for the discriminating buyer, and it's backed by a 50 year structural warranty.

The purchase price of your pool is obviously important, but what is it going to cost to own this pool over the next 15 years - that's the "real" cost. Over the period of ownership, the fiberglass pool is actually less expensive than other types of pools. How's that? The average vinyl liner pool owner will install two liners during the time of ownership, that's approximately $7000.00 right there. The fiberglass owner will NEVER replace a liner. Chemical costs are reduced by 60% with a fiberglass pool, heating costs by 12% and electrical costs to run the filter by 18%. Your savings based on a 15 year ownership will average over $10,000.00! If you look at the initial cost and add the cost of ownership over a 15 year period a FIBERGLASS POOL ACTUALLY SAVES MONEY!!!
