If you are looking for something a little more permanent than your above ground pool that will help increase the value of your home, you may want to consider an inground pool. When you choose to put an inground pool in your backyard, there are going to be some big decisions to make. The first thing you need to think about is what kind of inground pool you are looking for. Metropolitan Pools is here to talk about the different types of inground pools you will have to choose from for your home.
Concrete Pool with Plaster or Aggregate Finish
When you choose a concrete pool with plaster or aggregate finish, the pool contractor will use steel reinforced concrete to form the shell of the pool. Concrete and plaster are some of the most used materials for inground pools because concrete is so durable, and plaster can be replaced if there is any damaged sustained. In most cases, even if you have chosen to have a different shaped pool, it shouldn’t change the cost which can be the case with other types of inground pools.
If you have chosen a fiberglass pool, the shell will be made and then delivered to your home. It will need to be set in the hole using a crane. You don’t have the option of choosing a customized design because they are made beforehand. If there are any steps into your pool, a spa or benches, they will be made prior to the pool getting delivered. You can plan on a fiberglass pool lasting around 10-15 years as it starts to deteriorate due to UV exposure.
Vinyl Pool Installation
Pools that are made with a vinyl lining are usually formed with metal or plastic frames that are then covered in vinyl once they are placed in the hole. The supporting walls of the pool are often made using materials like plastic, aluminum and steel which are adjoined to the frame. This makes the form that is then lined with thick vinyl to form the rest of the pool shell. Many of the vinyl liners used in pools today come with fungus and UV inhibitors to help extend the life of the liner. You can plan to get about 10-18 years out of your vinyl liner.
Other Types of Pool Finishes
There are several different ways that you can add flare to your inground pool with alternative finishes. Using glass tiles, stone, pebble aggregate or other materials you can add style to your pool with these beautiful finishing touches. You can plan on these types of materials lasting about 10 years.
