Pools: Style Without Sacrificing Safety

Hi, my name is Katrina, and I have always had a pool. My parents had one when I was growing up, I have lived in apartment complexes with pools, and I currently have a pool in my yard. Through the years, I have paid close attention to how people position their pools, the designs they select and the fences they use. Personally, I am not a fan of super industrial looking or boring fences and pool designs. Instead, I like to see creative and beautiful ideas, and achieving a stylish pool is possible. Worried that it will disrupt your safety? Well, it wont. This blog has all kind of tips on achieving pool style without giving up on safety. Enjoy swimming in style!

The Different Types Of Pools Based On Your Concerns

If you are building or remodeling a pool, you might be wondering what kind of pool is best for you and your needs. There are many different factors that go into what kind of pool you choose. It all depends on what kind of things are important to you. Here are some things you should know about swimming pools:

1. Your Main Concern Is Time

If you are building or renovating a pool and your main concern is how long it is going to take to complete it, you should consider getting a fiberglass pool. This is because a fiberglass pool is like a giant bathtub. It is made of porcelain and manufactured in a facility. Once you order the pool, all you pretty much need to do is dig the hole and set the pool in it. The pool itself can be finished in as little time as a week. This is not the same for the other types of pools.

2. Your Main Concern Is Durability

If building a pool a main concern is durability and that you won't have to worry about major changes or fixes, then you should do either a concrete pool or a fiberglass pool. Concrete is known for it's durability because it is incredibly hard to damage it. Fiberglass may not be as strong as concrete but it is very close. Both of these options are good if you want something durable.

3. Your Main Concern Is Customization

If you want to build a pool that is able to be customized then you should go with either vinyl or concrete. These two options are done by digging a hole in the ground, the exact shape that you want, and then filling it. With fiberglass you don't have the ability to make it into any shape or size you want. You will only be able to choose from factory sizes and shapes.

4. Your Main Concern Is Cost

Lastly, if your main concern is the cost of the pool, then you probably want a vinyl pool. The upfront cost for this kind of pool is much more affordable. However, know that it may need more repairs in the long run, so you will have to factor that in. Fiberglass is midrange in cost, while the concrete option is the most expensive.

As you can see you can choose a pool based on what your specific needs are. Contact a company like After Hours Pool Service for more information and assistance.
