Adding a pool to the property is a dream for every homeowner. What could be better than having a pool to relax in? But, when you’re considering installing a new in-ground pool on your property, which one do you choose? Keep in mind that there are three different types of in-ground swimming pools that homeowners can choose from. The most common types that you can choose from are fiberglass, vinyl liner, and concrete.

What is a Fiberglass Pool?

The pool is made from an augmented fiberglass shell and covered using a protective gel coat called a fiberglass pool. The shell is installed in one piece and manufactured off-site.

Benefits of Fiber Glass Pool Structure

A fiberglass pool has no liner that needs replacement after every few years, which is the case in vinyl pools.

Speedy Installation

Fiberglass pools are installed in a blink of an eye. Once the shell is manufactured, it can typically take a few days to adjust.

No Need for Maintenance

The best part about fiberglass pools is that they don’t need any maintenance or someone to look after because the material is non-porous and durable.


Fiberglass pools stand strong and are not prone to getting damaged that easily.

Low Cost

Fiberglass pools are really not that expensive because of low maintenance.

What is a Vinyl Liner Pool?

Vinyl liner pools are in-ground pools custom-made and constructed with long-lasting and durable materials.

These pools are great at fast installation and stand firm against factors that adversely affect the pool through water, sunlight, and other chemicals.

Benefits of Vinyl Liner Pool Customization

Vinyl Liner Pool offers several customization options, making it unique and exciting. You can pick a size and shape for whatever fits your backyard and add more features like a vinyl liner pattern or pool steps.

Popular choice

They are a popular choice among pool owners because they’re comparatively low maintenance, affordable, and highly customizable.

What are Concrete Pools?

A concrete pool shell is made by spraying either shotcrete or gunite. The former is already wet, while the latter is a dry mix that uses water in the sprayer.

Benefits of Concrete Pools Customizable

Concrete pools offer a variety of customizable options. These allow you to select any shape, size, or add-on features you have been looking for and could not get in other pool types.


Thankfully, concrete pools are durable. You don’t have to worry about watching their structure get ruined or damaged by sharp objects. Guess what? Even your dogs can enjoy swimming in the same pool as their nails won’t destroy the walls of the pool.

Visually Appealing

When making a significant investment, like building an in-ground pool, it must enhance your home’s aesthetic. One of the reasons homeowners opt for concrete pools is that they are beautiful to look at. Yes, these pools indeed enhance the look of the facility. And you can stop worrying about the liner bubbling or algae growing within.
