pouring concrete for the patio tomorrow. Next week the digging for the fiberglass pool starts.
For us, fiberglass was considerably less expensive.
Plus we have a very high water table here. They will put pumps under it, but FG was recommended in case it ever needs to flex.
It would be started but we ordered a black one.
My boss has a black pool and it increases usage days by several as it warms the water.

yeah, not sure.. we had a half ass liner pool before and it never got hot due to it being on the west side of the house so the sun never hits it full on till after noon

We had a 12000 gallon concrete in ground installed in 1986... has shifted a little and is out of level but doesn't leak. On its 3rd pump and second filter. Needs to be re-plastered now but I have been putting it off.

I cant speak for the durability of fiberglass.

I will say pools are a PITA and require daily maintenance, water testing chemicals etc. Once your water gets warm you really have to watch it as that's when algae thrives.

Yea...dad had a pool when I was a sr in HS. Hated the upkeep. I was under the impression that they had better systems which required less attention. Wife swears that she would keep up with it...she has had above ground pools before.

I'm thinking it would be good physical therapy for her and wouldn't kill me to swim a little

True modern stuff requires less attention... no such thing as maintenance free I would think.
