We say this a lot, but buying a pool is kind of like buying a car. If we’ve saved enough for the car, we can pay for it all upfront. Most of the time, we make payments until it’s paid in full. So, chances are, when you get quoted for an inground fiberglass swimming pool, you’re not getting the number that’s going to apply to your day to day life: the monthly payment.
