....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.
