Choose Your Inground Pool Type

Vinyl Liner, Fiberglass or Concrete (a.k.a. Gunite)

Are you trying to decide between a fiberglass, vinyl liner or concrete pool for your home? There really is no right or wrong decision when it comes to installing a vinyl liner pool or choosing a fiberglass pool, as it’s a matter of your personal taste, budget and desired pool design. Which is it the right story for your family?

If you are thinking about installing a pool, it’s important to think about the cost of the initial installation and construction, and the cost of long term maintenance as well.


What Shape Fits Your Lifestyle?

If you're looking for the ideal pool size and shape, you've come to the right place! Penguin Pools provides a wide range of custom fiberglass and vinyl liner swimming pools that cater to all home exteriors, giving you maximum enjoyment both in and out of the water.


Accessories and Features

When it comes to upgrading your pool, there are a lot of possibilities for you to choose from. You could add a fire and water feature, tanning ledge, even an outdoor kitchen with LED lights, and more. Think about what you’d like to feel and see when you’re in your pool and decide from there.


Buying A Pool: How to Plan Your Pool Budget

We understand that investing in an inground pool for your home is a big deal. Every detail has to be right to include everything for the inground pool prices.

At Penguin Pools, we publish all of our base inground pool prices. We want to establish trust first and foremost, and there’s no better way to do that than to be up-front about what an inground pool will cost.


The Dig! Understanding the Construction Process

Before anything, we'll show you the swimming pool building process, picture by picture. Every step, from breaking ground to filling your new inground swimming pool with water.

Next, the pool excavation process begins. Depending on the pool type you've chosen, Penguin Pools will carefully dig and shape the area to the specs of your plan. The Pool Walls embedded for reinforcement, and plumbing and wiring for the water circulation system and accessories get installed.
