If you’re considering an in ground pool, you have three options – concrete, vinyl lined, or fiberglass. Each has its pros and cons, so consider them carefully before you make your final decision.
It’s a sad fact of pool ownership – sooner or later, even the thickest vinyl pool liner will begin to leak. You’ll probably get a good many leak-free years from your liner, but as it ages, it will begin to lose its resiliency and become vulnerable to damage. If you can see the hole, it’s a simple enough matter to fix it using a patch kit. Even if the leak is underwater, wet patch kits are available that will get the job done.
