Deciding on whether to get a vinyl, concrete or fiberglass pool can be something that has had you pulling your hair out. You have probably read a lot of conflicting things as you are doing your research but a lot of it comes down to what you prefer.

Before you get set on fiberglass, you want to make sure there is a fiberglass mold that is in the shape that you want it. Unlike concrete and vinyl, you cannot have any shape that you want with this material. You have to make sure it is available to you.

If you are worried about how you are going to get the fiberglass pool around the side of your home, don’t worry about that. The easy fix is to have a crane lift the pool over your home. This is a common practice and is usually pretty easy to do.

You may be wondering which of the pools are going to take the least about of upkeep so you aren’t having to focus on maintenance but even with spools, you are going to have to make sure to stay on top of cleaning your pool. There are different factors that play into it like whether you have surroundings where a lot of leaves are going to be going into your pool, if you have an automatic cleaner, etc.

Concrete pools are going to be your most difficult pool to clean and take care of, next on the difficulty rating is vinyl due to the fact that every 8 – 11 years you are going to have to replace the liner. That leaves you with the fiberglass spools.
