Material used for pool installation has improved over the years. Because of this improvement, many more options have become available from pool installation companies. It is important to understand that not all pools are the same and that while some offer a good amount of durability, others offer a good amount of flexibility in the pool size. Knowing this, there are five different kinds of pools that pool installation companies can install to meet your individual needs.
The Fiberglass Pool
When you want an alternative to a concrete pool, many pool installation companies can install a fiberglass pool. However, this style can be at a higher price. Regardless of the price, this type will last for at least 15 years. Having a smooth surface allows the fiberglass to be maintained easily even when the material begins to crack. While repairs can be made, they may be different colors and thus causing discoloration.
The Concrete Pool
When it comes to conventional pool installation, the concrete pool remains the pool of choice for many homes. This design is excavated into the ground and has a steel framework added. The concrete mix is then poured and then a layer of plaster seals it. If you prefer an alternative to plaster sealants, you can opt for tile or glass aggregate alternatives.
The Vinyl Pool
When a budget is on the smaller side, the vinyl pool will usually be the pool of choice. These pools will involve a frame made of plastic or metal that includes a vinyl liner, base made of sand, and panels. The vinyl pool will last for at least 18 years when treated with inhibitors that prevent fungus and UV. These pool styles come in various sizes and shapes, which allows them to be incorporated into any landscaping. The bad part with a vinyl pool is that a puncture can easily occur and result in expensive repairs.
The Dunk Pool
The dunk pool is a new design that many pool installation companies are starting to offer to homeowners. These pools offer a high amount of durability and do not require much space than their traditional counterparts. Being smaller allows these pools to be situated in areas that would not be appropriate for an in ground pool. These are usually designed in a rectangle or square and allow kids to easily make a splash or allow adults to accomplish exercise. Installation is fast and does not cost much. These pools have lighting and temperature controls that you use through an app on your smartphone.
The Container Pool
Having a container pool allows you to incorporate sustainable material to create the swimming pool. This type is not as expensive as other ground pools and can be transported easily to new locations.
When you have the container lined with fiberglass, it may come pre-assembled and can be either in the ground or partially exposed to allow a gravel pad around the edging. Without any structure in the walls, there will be a likely failure occurring. Plus, it is important for them to be correctly manufactured to prevent any rusting.
Consult With A Professional Pool Installer
Prior to investing in a pool, it is important to have an idea of what type of pool would be appropriate for your yard. When you have an idea, you can give Calimingo a call to discuss your options. They can provide you with a consultation and come out to visually inspect your landscaping and provide feedback on the pool’s overall design.
