Want A Swimming Pool In Your Yard? 2 Different Types Are Available

If you would like to have a pool in your yard, you need to know about the different types available. You can then hire a pool builder to build and install your new pool for you. Keep reading so you will choose the type that is best for you and your family.

Above-Ground Pools

Above-ground pools are available in a variety of sizes and depths. They are less expensive than other types as no soil has to be dug as you sit the pool on the ground. You can also find above-ground pools that have a deck that goes around them. Above-ground pools made of steel components are the most durable and will last a long time for you. A pool building can build and install the pool for you on your property and have it up and running quickly. This pool must be placed on a concrete pad. This is because the pool is very heavy once it is filled with water, and it will eventually sink into the ground.

For something less permanent and less expensive, there are blow-up above-ground pools that you can purchase. You can blow these up on your own if you have the right equipment. These pools are not available in as many sizes, however. 

Inground Pools

Inground pools are more expensive, but they are the best type if you plan to use your swimming pool a lot. An inground pool may add value to your home if you sell in the future. 

There are fiberglass inground pools, which are premade by the manufacturer then delivered to your home in one piece. Fiberglass pools are flexible, so if you live in an area that gets earthquakes, this would be the best type to choose. You can also choose fiberglass panel pools, which will be constructed on your property. 

Concrete inground pools are available. You have more options with this type of pool as you can choose the size and depth that you want, as well as the shape of the pool. Once you make your choices, the pool builder will dig the site and then fill the hole with concrete. You can then choose a finish to put on the concrete, such as paint, plaster, and specialty coatings in a wide variety of colors. 

Vinyl liner inground pools are another type you can choose. The pool builder will build panel walls and then fasten the walls together with special fasteners. The liner sits on a concrete pad. Inground pools have different features, such as slides, diving boards, specialty lighting, and water fountains.
