Most people like to have a hand in designing their pool. The first thing to do is to pick a shape. If you think that a plain rectangular is too boring, you may like an L-shaped pool. This would be like having two rectangular pools angled at 90 degrees to each other. This is perfect for those times when you have shallow area games and activities with small kids while the big kids are free to do cannonballs and other deep water activities. There are also many asymmetrical pool shapes, but the most popular is the kidney shaped pool. It does not have straight lines and sharp corners which makes it more pleasing to look at. It is also a great choice with naturalized landscaping.
Pools may be installed with vinyl liners, fiberglass, or with gunite concrete as the pool basin. A vinyl liner pool is preferred by the vast majority of homeowners. Vinyl pools have the lowest price to install which makes them popular. These pools are also non-abrasive which cuts down on the number of injuries that may occur with other materials. It is not rough on the feet like concrete would be. Vinyl does not harbor the growth of algae which keeps the chemicals and the cleaning at a minimum. That saves time and money. Finally the installation times for vinyl pools are shorter than for concrete pools. This means you will be relaxing by the pool sooner!
