Concrete/plaster and vinyl liner have long been relied on as flexible design materials for pools, but there’s a myriad of benefits to fiberglass pools that you may not be aware of. Let’s delve into the features of the three types of pools, and how they are installed.

With vinyl lined pools, the liners are put in place over a steel or polymer frame, but be aware that you’ll probably need to replace the liners in seven to 10 years, depending on their durability. Installation of vinyl lined pools is relatively quick compared to concrete, taking typically a few weeks, and they’re usually sold with pre-assembled components or full pool kits to accelerate installation.
A concrete pool takes much longer to install because it is constructed on-site from scratch. A steel reinforcing mesh is constructed to begin with, and then the concrete is sprayed onto that framework. After the concrete is set, the finishing coating of tiles or plaster is added. A concrete swimming pool will take anywhere from four to 16 weeks to be installed, which means you’ll wait longer to enjoy a concrete pool than you will a fiberglass pool or vinyl lined pool.
