Fast buyers guide to in ground pools Sydney
The three types of in-ground pools are vinyl, cement, and fiberglass. You can be a lot more creative with cement, but only if you have a lot of money to play with. On top of the amount of money it takes to have a cement pool, there’s also the upkeep of the pool itself. It’s not cheap. The cement is porous and is prone to a lot of algae growth. This requires a lot of chemicals being dumped into the pool. You also have to scrub your pool with an acid wash to clean it.
Vinyl pools are decent enough, but you still have to replace the liner more often than you think. That 20 year warranty also comes with fine print. You may be shocked to know that most warranties only cover the lining if it rips down the seam where it was sewn! If you have children that are rough on things as children tend to be, you may not want to be faced with replacing the liner every single summer.
Fiberglass pools are by far the cheaper of the three and they’re also the easiest to maintain. The surface isn’t porous and you don’t have to worry about anything ripping. There are no acid washes to deal with because you don’t have the algae problems that a cement pool does and it won’t rip like a vinyl pool will. It takes fewer chemicals and won’t crack like cement will. Fiberglass pools are also available in a diy pool kit!
It’s safe to say that if you’re looking for an inexpensive and easy to maintain swimming pool for your family, then a fiberglass pool is going to be the perfect choice for you!
