If you want to install an in-ground pool in your yard, you need to carefully consider what type of material you want to use for your pool. The material you choose for the pool will impact both the function and the appearance of your new in-ground pool.
Pool Material Choice #1: Fiberglass
If you want to install a pool that will be easy to take care of, consider installing a fiberglass pool. With a fiberglass pool, you will never have to replace the liner of the pool and you will not have to acid wash the pool like you would with a concrete pool.

When you have a new liner installed, you want to maintain it to prevent damage and wear that reduces its life.

If you're a proud new pool owner this year, it's a sure thing that you had fun swimming and lounging around the pool over the summer. Now, though, it's time to get that pool ready for winter, and what you do now can impact how ready your pool in when you open it up again in spring. While you'll still have to do some work to get it ready in the spring, if you take the right steps now, your work later on will be a snap.
