Is your Pool Contractor offering Custom Vinyl Liner Pool Designs?

January 20, 2017

Getting custom vinyl liner pool designs from your pool contractor shouldn’t be tough. Heck, they should be offering it to you before you even have to ask. A great pool contractor will want to create the pool you want in your backyard, regardless of shape.

Your vinyl liner inground pool pricing will be determined by shape, usually using a rectangle pool as a baseline. The simple rectangle is easy and fast to build, so your pool contractor will charge more for a free form shape.

Rectangle Pools aren’t BAD

If you are looking at an automatic safety cover, a rectangle is a good choice as that will give you the best auto cover. Auto covers can also be put on non-rectangle pools, but that is for a different article.

Vinyl Liner Pool Designs are just about Shape

Don’t be held prisoner to your pool contractor on what shape or size pool to put in. The beauty of vinyl liner pools is that you can make any size, shape, and depth you want. Do you want your pool 8′, 6′, 3′ deep?
Most builders consider 8′ deep a standard inground pool depth, so anything shallower than that will not affect the vinyl liner inground pool pricing.

To make things even more exciting, you can create a sport pool which puts the deep end of the pool in the middle . . . great for volleyball and basketball setups. This has recently become common place, but you would be surprised how many pool builders will not do this or even offer it to their customers.

Most customers think that they want the biggest pool they can get in their yard, many times that isn’t always the best option. Pools can actually be to big for a yard and make it look out of place. Good news, you can get ANY size you want with your vinyl liner pool designs.

Moral of the story, you can get your pool vinyl liner pool build however you want. The pool contractor you select better offer you vinyl liner pool designs that meet your needs in shape, size, and depth. Remember that the more elaborate the vinyl liner pool designs, the more it will affect your vinyl liner inground pool pricing.
