What to Know About Inground Pools 1Inground Pools – The Down & Dirty

When you are thinking about getting inground pools, you may be overwhelmed with the amount of information you run into. Some of it isn’t all that helpful and you may get more confused than when began. We understand this and that is why we are going to keep this simple.

#1 – Pool Types

The first thing you need to figure out is which type of pool you want. There are multiple types of pools to choose from; such as, concrete, vinyl, fiberglass, and tile. We recommend all these different types of pools to our customers; some types of pools work better for families than others do. It depends on what your goals are and what you are going to be using the pool for.


Let’s say that you have pets and kids and you want a freeform and free-flowing pool. You may want to ask your pool professional about a concrete pool. On the other hand, if you want a small pool that has beautiful different colors and there will not be any children or pets in the pool, you could go with tile. If you didn’t care so much about the shape of the pool and you were fine with having a pre-designed mold to choose from then you might want to go with a fiberglass pool. When you are looking at the vinyl pool option, you do not want to have kids and pets in this type of pool most of the time either since they can rip it.

#2 – Size of Your Pool

When you are choosing the size of your inground pools, you need to know how you plan on using the pool. If you don’t see yourself doing 25′ laps then you might want to go with a smaller pool. The smaller the pool, the smaller the budget required to make the pool happen so keep that in mind if you’re on a budget.
