There are many types of pools, and this includes:
1. Fiberglass- Fiberglass swimming pools are popular due to their sturdiness and durability. Pools constructed with fiberglass come in a range of models and sizes. These pools can be installed as an in-ground or above-ground pool. One of the best things about fiberglass pools is they are ready-made, so there’s no need to request a customized design. All you have to do is choose the make and model, which will then be installed by a professional or you can do it yourself, but whether or not you can do it on your own depends on the make and model you choose.
2. Vinyl- Vinyl pools feature vinyl lining, while the frames are either made with plastic or metal. The supporting wall is made with aluminum, plastic or steel that is join up to the frame.Just like fiberglass swimming pools, vinyl pools are available in various styles, designs and can either be in-ground or above-ground.
3. Portable Swimming Pools- As the name suggests, these types of pools are portable. You can easily bring them from one place to another. They are typically inflatable pools or made with materials that can quickly be dismantled and put together again. Many kids pools are portable but there are portable pools designed for older kids and adults. They are typically blown up with air and then filled up with water. Some of these pools come with a pump to filter out dirt and debris.
4. Infinity Pools- These types of pools are expensive, but they are extremely popular. These types of pools give the appearance that the edge of the pool is disappearing. The idea behind this pool is that the water looks like it extends into infinity. They are available in many sizes and designs, but a professional does need to install it.
Regardless of the type of swimming pool you want, always hire a professional to install it. They will ensure a smooth installation and they will set your pool up as quickly as possible. The only exception is if you buy a portable swimming pool.
