Types of Pool

When deciding to install a swimming pool (inground/above ground), one of the things to check is what type of pool it would be? It can be a fiberglass pool, a concrete pool or a vinyl pool. You can also check first some of the advantages and disadvantages of each one.

  • Concrete Pool

Having a concrete pool will allow you to have as big as you want for a pool. But it comes with the price of course.

  • Vinyl Liner

It has the cheapest for an initial cost.

  • Fiberglass Pool

A fiberglass pool works best for most pool owners.


In checking which type of pool, you also take into consideration the price of the pool. Different types of pools have different prices as well. So it’s up to you on how much would you like to spend.

The Circulation System

Pool circulation is essential in keeping the pool clean and clear. A swimming pool circulation system includes a pool pump, pool filter, heater, and sanitation system. Of course, everyone wants to keep their pool clean and sparkling so why not let My Pool Guy be your pool guy!

Period of Time for the Construction of your Pool
