There are many different types of swimming pools, ranging from the backyard above-ground pool to the Olympic-sized indoor pools. The type of swimming pool you choose will depend on your budget, how much space you have, and your level of experience with swimming.
Here are some of the most common types:
In-ground pools are the most common type of swimming pool. They’re installed in the ground and filled with water. The top of an in-ground pool is covered with a solid deck, which can be made from any material, including concrete, vinyl or wood.
In-ground pools are a great choice for homeowners who want to swim year-round or have children who want to learn to swim. In-ground pools give you more space for activities such as diving, playing games and relaxing with family and friends.
In-ground pools cost more than above-ground pools because they require excavation work and installation of plumbing systems. Only a professional pool builder can build you a in-ground pool as it requires great skill.
Above ground pools – These are very popular in residential areas, because they require less maintenance than other types of pools. They’re also easy to install, making them a good option for people who don’t have much experience with home improvement projects. These pools are usually made from vinyl or fiberglass and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some even have an inflatable ring around their base to help them stay upright when not in use.
Above ground pools are also relatively inexpensive compared to some other types of pools; however, they can be damaged easily by wind or storms if they aren’t properly secured or weighted down. In addition, above ground pools have limited room for customization; however, there are ways to make them look more attractive (e.g., adding additional features like lighting systems).
