A concrete pool is better any where if it is done professionally.
A concrete pool is better just about any where unless there is a lot of ground movement.
If you let the concrete dry on the ceramic, they have bonded. You can try to chisel it loose.
Pea gravel can be harsh on the feet at times. Recomend Concrete w/ broom finish.
Fiberglass is because concrete will crack Yes I agree also, because we had a concrete pool when I was growing up and we were always repairing leaks, maybe the pool was just bad, but now that we purchased a fiberglass pool. We love the pool and it does not require much maintenance. We're going on 6 years with the pool and it still looks new.
No, because fiberglass can make you slip unlike concrete steps
Yes, there is no problem with using salt in a concrete pool.
Concrete retains heat better and it a more permanent solution. Vinyl is often like a bladder to hold the water within a tin frame. The layers are so thin that heat retention is negligible and therefore not an optimal solution for a heated pool.
There are several types of trowels used in concrete construction. The gauging trowel is used to mix ingredients, the float trowel is used to smooth or level the surface, the pool trowel is used mainly for pool decks to apply coatings to concrete, and the margin trowel is used to apply grout to ceramic tiles.
Ceramic is better.
A concrete pool keeps looking better for longer and will outlast a fibreglass pool. Fibreglass pool maufacturers offer guarantees of between 10-20 years. This gives some idea of the longevitiy of fibreglass pools. Fibreglass pools have the following advantages: 1. Easier to install than concrete pools 2. More inert to chemicals and thus require less maintenance and cost than concrete pools 3. Easier to clean than tiles pools
