Designing a Pool

There are many different types of materials to use when constructing your swimming pool, each of which will determine not only the cost of the entire project, but also the level of maintenance your pool will require. Gunite, vinyl, and fiberglass are the most common supplies to use in pool assembly. An inground gunite pool is made from a steel enforced frame, covered with cement and plaster to create a strong, and durable structure. This type of pool is one of the most popular designs chosen today because, not only are they long lasting, but they can take on any shape or size. If you are looking to keep your pool prices down, this is not the ideal choice for you because gunite is the most expensive material to use. Vinyl is another common material to use for pool installation, and the pricing is lower than gunite. Inground vinyl pools consist of a metal, plastic, or wood frame placed in the excavated area covered with sand and a vinyl liner. Although vinyl is less expensive, they are not as durable as other in ground designs and can tear easily.
