If you’re thinking about installing a new pool, you’re probably familiar with the three most common pool materials: concrete (gunite), fiberglass and vinyl. Vinyl pools are a popular choice for homeowners who are looking for an affordable, low-maintenance, and customizable pool. Read on to learn more about the benefits of vinyl pools!
The Benefits of Vinyl Pools
Fast, Affordable Installation
Vinyl pools can be installed much faster than a concrete pool, which will take several weeks or even months to install. Your pool will be ready to swim in about a week’s time! This is great if you want to get your pool built fast in time for this summer. Another great thing about installing a vinyl pool is that it’s much more affordable than a concrete pool.
Great For Cold Climates
One of the common issues with concrete pools is that they can be vulnerable to the freeze thaw cycles that occur in cold climates. Vinyl on the other hand usually uses a steel or polymer shell that won’t expand or contract as much, making it less vulnerable to the cold.
Vinyl pools do require some maintenance, but not as much as other pools. The vinyl liner is smooth, which means there are less places for contaminants to latch on to. This in turn makes it easier to keep the water clean. One important thing to remember with a vinyl pool is that in order to get the maximum life out of the liner, it’s important to maintain the chemicals in the water according to the manufacturer.
Easy on the Feet
That smooth vinyl liner is easy on your feet and hands, making it a nice alternative to concrete.
Vinyl pools have come a long way since they were first introduced in the ’70s. Today’s vinyl pools are more durable, better looking, and more customizable than ever. Modular designs means you can get unique shapes that were once not possible with vinyl.
The Best of Both Worlds
With vinyl pools, you get the best of both worlds. You get the fast installation, ease of maintenance, and smooth surface of a fiberglass pools, with the customization options of concrete. Now that’s a win win!
