STEEL WALL / VINYL LINER POOLS
This is the type we recommend. While the fiberglass pools offer the lowest price with the least flexibility and the concrete pools offer the most flexbility but the highest price, the third type of pool fits perfectly between and offering you a wide range of shapes & sizes while not breaking the pocketbook. This type of pool is built with a steel wall and typically has a concrete/vermiculite base. This base is pourous enough to allow water to pass through without heaving the walls. With the shifting of ground over the seasons a fixed structure like the fiberglass or regular concrete pool will eventually form stress cracks and need to be repaired. While the vinyl liner ingrounds are able to give a little without the owner even noticing the movement. This eliminates most of the problems associated with typical concrete pools. The steel/vinyl wall will not chip or crack, and the wall does not have to be acid washed to remove algae or oils. Finally, the construction techniques are less labor intensive, making the pool equal or in some cases less expensive than a standard concrete pool. All of The Pool Center's inground pools are custom designed and built, and can be built in several shapes and sizes.
