Concrete is a common material used to construct a residential pool. To get started on building a concrete pool, a hole will be dug and then the inside of the hole will be lined with a frame that is made of rebar and steel rods. Once that framework is in place, shotcrete is then sprayed into the form. Sometimes gunite is also used to construct the pool The shotcrete is applied to the surface of the pool both dry and wet, but when gunite is used, it is applied dry. These pools can be a variety of different shapes and are completely customizable. You can also have a pool has tile, stone or other manmade materials added to the concrete or plaster. This is a way to completely customize your swimming pool as there are several different materials that you can choose from. Depending on what you use to line your pool with, you can get dramatic results when you choose this swimming pool. It can also be extremely costly though because it requires a significant amount of work to finish.
Fiberglass pools are completely different than a concrete pool. The whole will be excavated to fit a specific shape since the pool will be delivered and lowered into the hole a large crane. These pools usually come in specific design and are not usually customizable. The steps, benches and shallow areas will be built into the shape of the swimming pool. This is a nice ready-made option.
Vinyl Liner Pool
When a pool is built using a vinyl liner, there is a metal or plastic frame that is set in an excavated hole. Then, the plastic, steel or aluminum panels that are used to build the walls are attached to the framework. Then this shell is lined with a thick vinyl liner that is durable. The bottom of the vinyl liner rests on a sand or other material and the top is held down by the coping that creates a finished edge that creates the pool deck.
