Vinyl Liner Swimming Pools are a great value! Most of the information that is on the internet will have you believe that Vinyl Liner Swimming Pools are a horrible way to go. Usually most of the time they are built the least expensive way possible, such as using pre-made white steps and white aluminum coping. This type of pool can be built to look like a Fiberglass or Concrete/Gunite with many of the same options, such as- Tanning ledges, bench seats, hot tubs, Travertine Coping and Pavers, Water Features, and even real waterline tile. On average you can save at least $10,000 over a fiberglass or concrete swimming pool. One of the best advantages of a Vinyl liner pool is that they are the least expensive to renew. You can simply change the liner for a new and updated look. Most websites will have you believe that there are other pools that are better in the long run. Yes you will need to change other the liner about every 10 years, but it will end up taking about 30 years to get to the initial cost of the other types of pools. Still at that point the other types of pools will require some type of refinishing at a much higher cost.
One of the best features of a Vinyl Liner Swimming Pool is that they are very easy to customize. They can be whatever shape - rectangle, freeform, geometric, etc. and pretty much whatever size from small to very large.
