Best Answer

just one i know of...acid rain. make sure you test and keep your water balanced and you'll be fine

Hmm, have you looked into a barrel of rainwater lately? It was probably green. Rain water that has come off of a roof or gutters has a lot of contaminants in it. And why would you want to add water to the pool if it is raining?

k

I would be inclined to agree that there is a slightly better chance of picking up the odd algae problem, However I do know one guy that has a rainwater tank that he used for topping up the pool his toilets and his washing machine He reckons he has no problems to speak of ant he never pays excess water rates. Every time I see his pool it looks great

For inground pools is liner gunite concrete or fibreglass best?

Our experience shows that gunite or fiberglass are good. Gunite would probably last the longest. CONCRETE tends to crack over years with normal ground shifts. Had two pools with concrete, so many cracks after 10 years, buried the thing, the repair costs were astronomical.


What is a vinyl lined inground pool?

An inground pool is typically lined with either gunite (concrete), fiberglass, or vinyl. Gunite and fiberglass are roughly the same cost, whereas vinyl is considerably cheaper. With the lower price comes less durability, as vinyl lining has to be replaced every 8-10 years or so, whereas the other two can last for decades. Vinyl is also much easier to puncture or otherwise damage. That said, many people still prefer vinyl inground pools due to the lower cost.
