....Let's build a Pool....



         A vinyl liner pool is made of wall panels, the pool base, vinyl liner, steps, and coping. Vinyl liner pools are often seen as the “budget” option, meaning they’ll have low initial costs and low installation costs. However, they’ll lag behind fiberglass and concrete pools in terms of quality. Below are several of the pros and cons of this type of pool :                                                                                                                                   

  •   Highly customizable – Vinyl liner pools allow for a lot of freedom in terms of depth, length, width, and stairs. Since you won’t be choosing from a predetermined set of pool shells like with a fiberglass pool, you’ll have more options as to how you want the pool to be designed and what features it will have.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
  •  Low initial cost – These pools are affordable to install and maintain for the first couple years.                                                                                                                                                                                                              
  •  High maintenance cost – Every 5-10 years, you’ll need to replace the vinyl liner. This often costs up to $4,000, which is much higher than any maintenance you’ll need for concrete or fiberglass pools. Additionally, the vinyl liner can become damaged easily, so it’s not unusual to have to replace it more frequently. As a result,warranties on vinyl liner pools are not very good.
