Don't blindly wonder if a fiberglass, concrete, or vinyl liner pool is right for you. Our educational ebook does a deep-dive comparison of the 3 types, all while noting the advantages and disadvantages of each.
Green: the lovely color of freshly mowed grass, summer leaves fluttering in the breeze, and the protagonist’s eyes in any teen novel in the local library. It’s not so lovely when it’s the color of algae in your inground pool.

Ah yes, the relaxing rush of a waterfall. Such a beautiful, soothing noise…until you remember that you’re sitting by your pool and didn’t install a waterfall. Yikes.
A pool is a pool is a pool, right? Actually, not so much. When you’re planning such a big investment, you need to look into the three primary pool types—concrete, vinyl liner, and fiberglass—to understand the differences. River Pools manufactures and sells only fiberglass pools, but we know you need all the information on all the pool types in order to make an educated decision on what’s best for your needs. For some people, concrete is the way to go.
If you decide to go with a vinyl liner pool, we won’t cry…much. (River Pools specializes in fiberglass pools, after all.) But that vinyl liner needs some special attention in order to live its life to the fullest. While the builders and installers are responsible for creating your pool according to specifications, you have the power to ensure that they do so and that your pool stays in good health for as long as possible. One way to do that is to understand how to prevent divots, dents, and bumps in the bottom of your vinyl liner pool.

Here at River Pools, we sell fiberglass pools exclusively, but we understand a fiberglass pool may not be the best fit for everybody, and many pool shoppers might find a concrete pool to be the best option for their situation. However, concrete pools comes with their own unique set of problems, and because a pool installation is such a big decision, we want to ensure you have the full picture. Here are 10 of the most common problems for a concrete pool—and how you can avoid them.
