As one of the largest installers of vinyl inground pools in the state of New Jersey we have compiled a list of helpful tips to consider when researching the various types of inground swimming pools on the market.

Vinyl Liner Pools

Advantages

  • Pool components are manufactured in a controlled environment by machinery and have long manufacturer warranties.
  • Vinyl liner pools are the easier and more cost effective to maintain and repair. If for example the liner tears its can be easily fixed or replaced in most cases.
  • Replacing a vinyl inground pool liner is more cost effective than resurfacing other types of pools.
  • Vinyl inground pools can be custom designed to fit any shape or size. This gives you the ability to create a high end luxury pool without the cost associated with other types of inground swimming pools.
  • Some standard shapes such L-shape provide a combination of large diving and shallow play areas for the best of both worlds.
  • Vinyl liners come in a variety of colors and styles and allow you to truly customize your backyard design.
  • The smooth surface of vinyl inground liners make them easy to maintain and they are friendly on the skin.

Disadvantages

  • Liner may tear or scratch if abused or if animals claw the sides of the pool. If pets use the pool they must be trained to walk out using the pool stairs. (Note: You get additional protection from thicker liners. Ask your pool professional for warranty information)                                                                                                                                                
  • Liners usually need to be replaced every 10-15 years (Thicker liners typically have a longer lifespan).
  • If drainage around the pool is not properly addressed or if pool leaks out, the liner will float.
  • Liner is susceptible to low water PH and can be damaged if chemicals are not used properly.

One Piece Fiberglass Pools

Advantages

  • Manufactured in a controlled environment by people, which is good if experienced craftsmen and good molds are used.
  • Smooth surface is easy to clean and maintain and is easy on the skin.
  • You can see exactly what you get.
  • Pet friendly to a certain extent.
  • Quick installation times.

Disadvantages

  • Even the largest fiberglass pools are at best only average in size. Advertised sizes don't represent the true size of the usable pool. Dimensions given are not water edge to water edge as is the case with other types of pools, but also include the part of the shell that is not visible in the final installation. Especially with free-form shapes, because advertised sizes are (max width x max length), you may end up with a considerably smaller pool than you bargained for.
  • Cannot be custom designed.
  • Surfaces can be damaged by high water PH.
  • When the surface of a fiberglass pool fades or deteriorates it is very difficult and expensive to resurface. In most cases the original look of the pool can never be recaptured once it is resurfaced.
  • The structure is not self supporting and may collapse or buckle if emptied.
  • Fiberglass pools are very difficult and expensive to repair. Under certain scenarios or if the pool develops a leak, the pool shell may buckle or float.
  • Fiberglass pools are known for suspiciously short warranties on some color surfaces, and no warranties against floating or buckling.

Concrete and Gunite Pools

Advantages

  • Limitless design capabilities that give a high end look (There are some things that can not be done effectively with other pool types. For example beach entries and multiple elevations)
  • Animal friendly and can withstand physical  abuse.
  • The structure is self supporting.

Disadvantages

  • Concrete and Gunite pools are the most expensive pools on the market.
  • They are expensive and difficult to clean.
  • Pool surfaces such as the floor and walls are porous and most susceptible to damage caused by poor pool chemistry. High or low PH, hard or soft water, or any metal content will damage the pool surface.
  • When the surface of a fiberglass pool fades or deteriorates it is very difficult and expensive to resurface. In most cases the original look of the pool can never be recaptured once it is resurfaced.
  • Concrete and Gunite pools must be resurfaced every 7-15 years at a considerable cost.
  • Plumbing is expensive to repair and replaced as it is encased in concrete.
  • Concrete and Gunite surfaces can be rough on both the feet and skin.
  • Correct installation can take months.
  • Concrete pools are susceptible to cracks. Concrete cracks can be difficult to repair properly.
  • Pool is manufactured on site and warranties are short on pool surface and pool structure.
