  • Customizable shape and size:   There are no limitations of the length, width, and depth of Vinyl Liner Pools. Steps and benches are covered in vinyl. 
  • Quality control:  Dependent on the on the job site of the home installer. Quality Vinyl pools, steel or polymer structrual walls and vinyl material varies (and so does fiberglass.) 
  • Quick installation : Because the shells of fiberglass pools are built off site, the installation occurs more rapidly....3-5 weeks on average.
  • Beautiful:  As seen in the above image, you can do amazing things with a fiberglass swimming pool.
  • Limited  warranty:  Warranty is against seam failure but vinyl will get holes in it and leak eventually. $500 detection fee.
  • Shapes:  Unlimited Shapes.  
  • Stairs and seating : Stairs and seating are flexible with a vinyl pool.
