Common Types of Inground Pools in Seviervilleby Specialcare Pools swimming pool contractors in Pigeon Forge
Pools are no longer a luxury for many households across the US. Besides increased income, the technology involved in making pools has undergone great development in the past few years such that the amenity is less costly. Interestingly, households have various designs and types of pools from which they can choose depending on the cost of installation.
Pools are installed either above the ground or inground. However, inground pools are more convenient. The developed technology has enabled developers to use different materials and designs to create different types of inground pools. For example, inground pools in Sevierville make use of fiberglass to ensure that the amenity is safe, secure and long-lasting. Here are the types of inground pools.
1. Fiberglass pools
Simplicity and the need to cut costs is the major driver of the increasing use of fiberglass to make inground pools. Indeed, the fiberglass pool comes ready-made. The manufacturer has a range of designs in place for you to choose from but you can also make a special request for a custom design. Interestingly, this type of pool comes with everything premade. This includes spas, steps, and benches. Therefore, all that you need to do is to sink a hole and install the fiberglass structure.
As such, the process of building fiberglass inground pools is easy and quick. Additionally, the nature of the material makes it impossible for algae to colonize your pool. However, this material is expensive and has a lifespan of between 10 to 15 years.
2. Aggregate finishes/regular pools/concrete with plaster
This is the oldest type of inground pool. Here, the building material that goes into the making process includes plaster, concrete, and shell. These materials became popular for making residential pools because they are cheap and they last longer. Unlike fiberglass, which is ready-made, this type of pool involves a lot of work and labor. However, this kind of pool is increasingly becoming extinct as more people move to fiberglass materials and other alternatives.
3. Vinyl pools
Vinyl is the most popular alternative to fiberglass. Unlike fiberglass, vinyl pools do not come premade, at least not fully. Instead, most of the material is put in place at the location. Further, this type of pool requires a lot more work compared to fiberglass pools but less than the concrete and plaster pools. Once the hole is ready, prefabricated structures are used to support the walls. Then vinyl liners go at the bottom thus holding water in place. Similar to fiberglass, vinyl deteriorates faster than concrete and such a pool might not last beyond 18 years.
