Different Types of In-Ground Swimming Pools

 

An in-ground swimming pool can be the perfect addition to any backyard. These types of swimming pools are extremely sleek, sophisticated, and can significantly improve the aesthetic of your entire home. You may have been looking to install an in-ground swimming pool via services in Canton and found yourself confused by the different types available. This article will cover the three different types of in-ground pools so that you can make an informed purchasing decision for your very own custom swimming pool in Canton.


Vinyl Liner Pools

One of the most popular Canton swimming pools are vinyl liner pools. These pools are available in three different types: steel, polymer, and cement. The most common types are steel and cement pools, which is mainly due to the fact that with these materials can be manipulated into any shape, dimension and design with little difficulty. This is great news for anyone who wants a pool made to their exact design specifications. One downside of a steel wall liner is that it’s very susceptible to corroding. It’s not advised for anyone who lives in an area with a high water table. The main drawback of the polymer liner pool is that there are limitations imposed on its design due to the pinning and locking system that is used to create the panels. It does, however, have a much longer potential lifespan than the steel wall pool.


Fiberglass Pools

Fiberglass pools seem to be the latest trend at the moment, especially in Canton. The main attraction of these pools is that absolutely everything is assembled in the factory and the finished product is shipped off to the home, meaning that the only thing the homeowner needs to have is a hole ready in their backyard so that the pool simply slides into position. It’s truly a one-piece and even comes fully assembled with benches. One of the main benefits of owning a fiberglass pool is that they are relatively inexpensive compared to other swimming pools in Canton. They also have very low maintenance costs. The main drawback, however, is that there are few designs available and you are pretty restricted in the type of design and color they come in. Also, they cannot be used as diving pools. Despite these things, fiberglass pools are the still a convenient option if you don't mind the shape of the pool too much.


 

Concrete Pools

The final type of in-ground swimming pool is the concrete pool. There are two very specific types of concrete pools and they’re referred to as gunite and shotcrete swimming pools. The main difference between the two is how the concrete is mixed and added to the pool. Currently, concrete pools are at the top price point in Canton, though it’s worth the money if you’re looking to receive a top-quality pool. There are no limitations when it comes to your design options; you can manipulate each and every part of these pools to your liking. The finishes can also be of many different varieties which gives the swimming pool a very unique look. You have the option of placing porcelain, ceramic, or even glass tiles around the proximity of the pool. All of the opportunities and choices you have with concrete pools is virtually endless. Whether you’re a pool enthusiast or just have a sizable budget, this is definitely a pool that’s worth serious consideration. It can be made into anything you think of.


Now that you should have a much clearer idea of the different types of in-ground swimming pools in Canton, you have the power to make a wise and cost-effective purchase. There are definitely some very distinct pros and cons that come with each pool and, through knowing them, you can make an informative decision about a pool that will keep you satisfied for years. With the right pool, you can be the envy of your neighborhood and enjoy a good time with your family and friends.
