Keep in mind that each company you meet might only specialize in a certain type of pool.  The ‘big 3’ styles are:

  1. Concrete, normally called ‘gunite’ in the pool business
  2. Vinyl Liner, with a steel back wall or frame
  3. Fiberglass pools

The best pool builders of concrete (gunite) pools, have the best Nozzlemen.  The nozzleman is the person who shoots and controls the gunite mixture through a hose to form the pool.

Shooting gunite is an art form.  If the nozzleman doesn’t do this right, the pool won’t be right. Concrete pools give you the widest design choices for shapes and sizes. If you can draw it, you can build it.

Vinyl liner / steel wall pools come in many shapes and sizes too.  They’re more customizeable than Fiberglass, but have their quirks as well.

Fiberglass pools are pre-formed and ready to install once the backyard is prepared to receive them.  Modern fiberglass pools come in many sizes and shapes.

The widest fiberglass pools are 16′ wide, since they’re shipped on the highway.  New fiberglass pools from quality manufacturers like Thursday Pools and Trilogy pools come in dozens of shapes with your choice of color options.
