How to choose the best pool type for you
Choosing the type of pool you want is one of the first steps in designing your new summer oasis. At Preston Greenhouse, we specialize in both above-ground and vinyl-lined in-ground pools. Deciding between above-ground and in-ground pools can be a difficult decision, so we’ve put together the key features of each to help you make the right choice.
This type of pool is a great option for those wanting something more reliable and permanent than an inflatable pool without breaking the bank. While not as long-term as in-ground pools, above-ground pools are a low cost option that does not slack on quality. Most above-ground pools have very quick installation and only take around a day to set up. Here are some of the main characteristics of above-ground pools:
- Varying sizes for your needs
- Generally between 4 to 5 feet deep
- Quick installation
- Usually last 10 to 15 years
- Less customization than in-ground pools
- Vulnerable to weather damage
Vinyl in-ground pools are an efficient choice for those interested in a more long-term and customizable option than an above-ground pool while still staying low cost. Compared to other types of in-ground pools, a vinyl-lined pool will have a shorter installation time and less up-front costs. Despite being the cheaper option, this type of pool does not lack quality and can be customized to a multitude of needs.
Some of the key features of a vinyl in-ground pool include:
- Cost-efficient compared to fiberglass or concrete
- Customizable size and shape
- Smooth, soft-to-touch lining
- Algae resistant
- Internal add-ons like water jets or custom lighting
- External add-ons like waterfalls or slides
- Vinyl liner will need replaced every 7 to 10 years
