3 Different Types Of Inground Pools{0}

Inground swimming pools are the pools you see in people’s backyards; the ones which are sunk into the ground, rather than resting above it. They are fantastic for taking a dip, exercising, relaxing and partying. There are three main types of inground pools, which you should be aware of if you are considering having one installed. They are:

Concrete Pools

Surprisingly, many award winning pools are landscape design and made from concrete. We don’t usually associate concrete with great style, but inground pools are usually finished with other materials: The concrete simply providing a strong and durable foundation for the pool.

The best thing about concrete pools is that they are very customisable. You can do pretty much anything with concrete, So, whether you want to create a circular pool, or one in the shape of a palm tree, anything is possible when you choose a concrete pool, which simply consists of a steel frame, installed with plumbing and then filled with concrete.


A lot of people use gunite to create their favoured swimming pool and landscaping designs. Gunite is sprayed over a reinforced steel frame, using a nozzle device.  Plaster is them placed over the gunite. The advantage of this method is that it can be used to create very strong and durable. The plaster used in this method is also available in a range of colours and this means you can create a pool in a vast range of colours.

Fiberglass Pools

Fiberglass inground swimming pools are typically more affordable than gunite or concrete pools. They are made from fibreglass, which is a reinforced plastic. These pools usually come pre-formed and are simply installed into the ground, the advantage of using a fibreglass pool is that it is quicker to install, but there is not as much flexibility in design.
