How much does a Leisure pool cost compared to a Concrete or Vinyl Pool?
When considering the cost of a swimming pool you should think about two issues; the initial cost and then the cost of ownership. In many areas of the country the initial cost difference between a Leisure fiberglass pool, concrete and vinyl liner pool varies. There are many regions in the country that the initial cost of a fiberglass pool is less expensive.
However, there are also regions of the country where the initial cost of vinyl liner pools and in some cases even concrete pools are less expensive.
As far as fiberglass pools cost of ownership comparison with the other two types of pools, one might expect to find the following:
Vinyl Liner Pools
Although in some parts of the country the initial cost of a vinyl liner can be less than fiberglass or a concrete pool, its cost of ownership is often much more. With the average life expectancy of the liner to be between 5 and 10 years at best and the average liner replacement cost to be at least $4,000, one can easily make up any price difference on the first replacement. This combined with the additional chemical costs year to year versus a fiberglass pool makes this type of pool not a good long term investment.
Concrete or Gunite
Concrete, or gunite, pools typically cost more initially than both vinyl liner and fiberglass pools in most areas of the country. When one analyzes cost of ownership against a fiberglass pool they will find a huge difference. Concrete pools typically have to be resurfaced every 8 to 12 years at a cost of $7,000 to $10,000. There is also a substantial difference each season on chemical and maintenance costs.
Why Fiberglass Pools have the lowest cost of ownership?
