  • Q: What are the pros and cons between liner, unite and fiberglass pools?
  • A: Each of the different types of pools have pros and cons. The pros to gunite pools is the unlimited freedom of design. It tends to make the pool more personal. The cons are that every 15-20 years a gunite pool will need to be replastered. Also it is very important to make sure the water is always balanced to preserve the life of the plaster. Liner pools are nice because they can be almost any shape possible, they cost considerably less, and are cheaper to repair. Liner pools are available in a number of patterns that are beautiful, but vinyl is not as durable as a gunite or fiberglass pool. Luckily liners can be patched. Fiberglass pools are very quick to install. Once the hole has been dug it is very easy to drop it into the ground and plumb it. The fiberglass pools are limited in shape and pattern and patches tend to be noticeable.
