Below are five things to love about vinyl pool construction and why it might make a great fit for you, too!

1. Vinyl liners give you the best value for your money.

Of the three types of liners we install, vinyl is the most economical. They have the lowest initial cost, ranging from $10,000 to $20,000 less than fiberglass and gunite. You get more swim room per square foot, and maintenance and repairs are less than other types of pools. If you need to stick to a budget, we highly recommend a vinyl pool.

2. Vinyl swimming pools can be customized to your liking.

Vinyl liners have endless customization options. There are very few limitations in terms of size, width and depth, so you can tackle any design you want! Standard shapes and sizes are what you will choose from first, and then you can go ahead making customizations if you choose.

3. Vinyl liners require little maintenance.

No pool is completely maintenance free, but vinyl pool liners are close! Since the surface is nonporous, the risk of algae growth is much lower. There are also less sanitizing chemicals needed because the pool stays cleaner. These types of liners wear gracefully so you can enjoy a nice looking pool for years to come!

4. Vinyl pools have smooth bottoms for comfortable swimming.

Unlike other types of pool bottoms, vinyl is smooth to the touch. This leaves a comfortable environment for swimmers, which especially comes in handy if you want customizable options like benches, steps and swim outs.

5. Vinyl swimming liners can be easily repaired or replaced.

Vinyl liners do need to be replaced every 7-10 years, on average. Though this is a drawback to these liners, don’t let that hold you back. A replacment costs between $2,500 and $4,000 and only takes about 2 days. If any leaks or holes are detected before that, they can be replaced in about 5-10 minutes using a repair kit.
