One of the most durable options for your Chattanooga swimming pool is a gunite pool. Construction of a gunite pool includes rebar framework that is sprayed with a concrete and sand mixture. The rebar adds durability that traditionally poured pools do not offer because of their wooden frames. Gunite swimming pools are malleable, giving you the ability to truly customize your swimming pool. These pools offer a diversity when it comes to the aesthetic of your swimming pool. Transforming your outdoor living space is made easy with a multitude of plaster finishes that can match the finish of your pool deck. Your options don’t end there, wow your friends and family by opting for a pebble or glass finish providing a luxurious look to your swimming pool. Gunite swimming pools are easily given unique touches such as waterfalls and customizable steps. The versatile beauty and durable materials these pools make gunite swimming pools one of the most popular choices when building your pool.


Pool Algae


Need a quickly installed, low maintenance pool? Fiberglass swimming pools are designed to any shape or size and installed in one piece. The fiberglass materials are made by woven threads made of glass, the fabric is then cured with a polyester resin resulting in a strong, yet lightweight material. The benefits of a fiberglass pool continue with a weather resistant gel that smooths out the pools surface which will never need to be replaced. The smoothness of the pool is resistant to algae buildup and the pools pH levels sustain an ideal balance. Fiberglass swimming pools are able to be fitted with lighting to facilitate night swimming as well as heating to extend the use of your Chattanooga swimming pool. The installation time of your fiberglass swimming pool is contingent on the electrical work and excavation, but typically these swimming pools can be installed within a week.



An economical choice in swimming pools is a vinyl pool. A custom cut vinyl sheet is secured into a track at the top of the pool. This sheet covers a concrete or sand bottom met by thermoplastic or galvanized steel sides. The siding of the pool safeguards against cracking and bowing out. The build of these swimming pools are flexible, which is ideal when working with a specific design or limited space. This cost-effective design is not lacking the premier options of pool fixings. Whether it’s lighting for night swimming, heating during the cooler months, addition of a waterfall, spa or pool deck the vinyl pools options are seemingly endless.


backyard ideas


Slopes, hills, and uneven ground will not prevent you from installing a Chattanooga swimming pool. The flexibility of aluminum and the strength of steel enable you to build a pool no matter the terrain. Optimum pools can be built into a slope or made to be semi-in ground perfect for a hilly backyard or if you’re waterfront. Round and oval shapes can be designed to fit in any yard. While set up is not as quick as a fiberglass pool, Optimum pools can be set up in a small amount of time.
