If the past two years have taught us anything, it’s that getting outdoors is crucial…
So you’ve decided 2020 is the year to take the plunge and get an inground pool. But what type of inground pool is right for you and your family? There is no one size fits all answer to that question. Below, we discuss some of the features and costs associated with fiberglass pools and inground pools. These are our areas of expertise.
Fiberglass pools are manufactured pools, with a wide variety of sizes and shapes available to choose from. We install San Juan Fiberglass Pools. They are an industry leader in fiberglass pool technology. If you want an inground pool with a quick installation and lower price point, a fiberglass pool may be for you.
You can customize your fiberglass pool with waterfalls, slides, pool decking and more. The sky’s the limit!
Concrete pools are higher-end pools. A concrete pool is completely customizable for shape, size, coping, tile, steps, deep end, and more. Because of the increased cost of labor and materials involved with installing a concrete pool, the initial cost of your inground pool will be higher than the installation cost of a fiberglass pool. But your concrete pool will last a very long time.
If you’re looking to make a long-term investment in your own personal paradise, a concrete inground pool may be the answer. And you can add all sorts of features to your concrete pool, including a pool waterfall, diving rock, pool bar, steps, and much more.
Both types of inground pools will require weekly and monthly pool care and maintenance. You will want to take these costs into consideration as well. Will you handle pool care yourself, or will you hire a pool service?
By pool care and maintenance, we mean cleaning the pool regularly; adjusting the pool chemistry as needed, and making sure the pool pump and other components are working correctly. A lot goes into keeping the water crystal clear.
