Method of construction – Contrary to what some people may believe, swimming pools aren’t the same all throughout. They are classified according to their methods of construction. There are three main types of swimming pools, namely the concrete pools, fiberglass pools, and vinyl pools.
Also called Gunite pools, concrete pools are constructed using a rebar framework, which is sprayed over by a mixture of sand and concrete. Fiberglass pools, on the other hand, come in pre-formed shapes and sizes and is installed in one piece. Lastly, vinyl pools are much like fiberglass pools – only differing in the special vinyl sheet that lines the pool surface. They install like fiberglass pools, too.
