How to Choose the Right Swimming Pool

Thinking about putting in a swimming pool? With so many possibilities of swimming pool styles, shapes, sizes, and building material it can be overwhelming choosing what you want. Here are a few tips that might make the decisions a little clearer.

The first thing to consider is your budget. Your budget will determine the size, shape, and building material of your pool. If your budget is on the lower side, you may have to make some sacrifices, but Hawaiian Pool Builders has experts to help make those decisions. If you have a higher budget, you will be able to tailor the pool more closely to your needs and wants.

There are a few different options in building material for your in-ground pool.

Fiberglass:  These are pre-made pools made of fiberglass and are simply set into a hole the pool crew digs. This route will limit your choices for sizes and shapes but will be more cost efficient than other pool building options.

Vinyl Liner: This is a very economical and effective choice for back-yard pools. This type of construction consists of an X double steel bracing wall that is set in place in a hole dug by the crew. The steel bracing is anchored with concrete and covered by a vacuum sealed vinyl liner. The steel bracing is anchored with concrete and covered by a vacuum sealed vinyl liner.

Gunite:  This is the most popular around much of the United States. This technique is completed by using a steel rod frame sprayed with a coat of gunite, which is a mixture of cement and sand. Customers using this technique have the option to build in any size and shape. These pools are very durable and can be finished in a few different ways including plaster, paint, or tile.
