Fiberglass. Over time concrete stains and can become rough, where fiberglass retains its smooth texture. Fiberglass will also give you more options.

How much does it cost to install a vinyl swimming pool versus fiberglass pool?

Well first of all there is no such thing as a fiberglass pool. You can have fiberglass walls instead of steel but your pool is still vinyl because you need a liner. These are the usual combinations of inground pools. Sand floor, steel walls, vinyl liner Sand floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl liner Vermiculite floor, steel walls, vinyl liner Vermiculite floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl liner Concrete floor, steel walls, vinyl liner Concrete floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl liner Concrete floor, concrete walls, no liner Concrete pools have to be painted with epoxy paint or if you want tile installed then usually you plaster over the concrete. Now a days 3 and 4 are the most common inground installs. 1 and 2 are usually pools that are 30 + years old although you can still have them done that way. In South Alabama the cost of a 20 *40 vinyl pool will cost around 18 to 22 thousand

Are fiber glass pools superior to concrete?

I am a big fan of Fiberglass pools. I have had vinyl liner pools and concrete pools. Fiberglass pools are easy to clean, they manitain chemical balance better, and the surface does not need to be refinished as often as concrete pools. The only downside is that the surface of fiberglass pools can be a bit more slippery than concrete but that has not caused any problems for us.

Is there a way to patch a swimming pool that has water in it?

Yes, you can. The type of patching would depend on what kind of pool it is - vinyl or concrete - and what it is that needs patching. You can use a piece of pool liner and underwater liner repair glue to patch a vinyl liner (I prefer to not use the clear patch material that comes in most store bought liner repair kits, but the glue is ok to use). If it is a concrete shell, you would use a 2-part underwater epoxy made for pool repair. If the pool is a fiberglass shell, you will likely need to empty the pool to make an effective patch.


How do you fibreglass a inground pool liner pool?

Fiberglass pool shells are shipped in a single piece directly from the manufacturer. As a result, you don't actually linea pool with fiberglass the way you would with concrete or vinyl. Instead, installing a fiberglass pool simply means digging a hole in which to place the already completed shell.
