Your In-Ground Swimming Pool Options

Each pool offers some pros and cons. Learn some of the main differences below to help determine which is the best investment for your property and project.

vinyl pool

Vinyl Liner

The walls are assembled within the pre-dug hole to form the pool shape on a bed of ultra-soft vermiculite for the floor. Finally, all surfaces are overlaid with your custom vinyl liner.

Vinyl Liner Pools

The vinyl liner constructed pool has been the most popular home in-ground swimming pool in the Midwest because of its durability in harsh winter climates. It’s also been known for its plain rectangle or cigar box shape. However, today’s vinyl liner pools come in an extensive variety of shapes, sizes, and liner designs.

A vinyl liner pool is a metal wall pool built in the ground. It’s named for the large, custom-cut sheet of vinyl that covers or “lines” the inner-steel wall and the smoothed pool floor. The pool arrives at your home as a complete kit with pre-cut steel wall panels, wall braces and the liner.

Pros

  • Vinyl is typically the most affordable choice.
  • Vinyl liner pools can be built in almost any size or shape desired.
  • Liners are available in many colors and patterns.
  • Properly set steel walls and frames can withstand ground movement and tough winters.

Cons

  • Pool liner can be punctured causing water leakage and further damage.
  • Wear and water chemicals require liners to be replaced every 5 to 6 years.

fiberglass pool

Fiberglass

We’ll pre-dig the hole to the required specs and then your prebuilt pool shell arrives at your home ready to set in.

Fiberglass Pools

Choose the shape, color, and features of your dream swimming pool and then have it delivered directly to your home! The pool arrives ready to be lowered into the pre-measured hole, then we simply connect the plumbing and electrical and you’ll be ready to jump in in no time.

Fiberglass pools are generally more expensive than vinyl liner pools. However, fiberglass offers significant savings in energy, chemical, and maintenance costs. The fiberglass shell is well-insulated which keeps your water heating costs low. Fiberglass is quite durable and can withstand the freeze-thaw temperature swings. Not only from both the ground around it, but also the water in the pool. Fiberglass also keeps your water pH levels much more stable when mean fewer chemicals!

Pros

  • Fiberglass pools are available in an extensive choice of shapes, colors, surfaces, and features.
  • The pool is a strong one-piece fiberglass shell; durable and virtually maintenance-free.
  • Well-insulated, non-porous surface of the shell requires less water heating and chemical use.
  • Most fiberglass shells have at least a 50-year life expectancy.

Cons

  • The size of your fiberglass pool is limited due to the shipping process. The maximum sizes to fit on a semi-trailer are 40’ long by 16’ wide by 8’ deep.
  • While the selection of fiberglass pool designs is very robust, you are still choosing from a limited number of sizes, shapes and features available from each manufacturer.
  • There is a higher up-front cost to purchase, deliver and install the pool versus vinyl.

shotcrete pool

Shotcrete

When it absolutely needs to be completely custom, shotcrete (or concrete), pools allows total design freedom and durable construction.

Shotcrete Pools

If you haven’t found the look and features you want with a vinyl liner or fiberglass, consider a one-of-a-kind custom designed shotcrete swimming pool. By building with shotcrete, you determine the exact shape, size, slope, and design of your pool. You’ll also pick all the additional attributes and features such as water features, stairs, lighting, and much more.

Shotcrete is a term for concrete shot as a wet mix through a pressured hose to a specific spot. You get the flexibility of shooting to any shape and angle, plus the great strength of concrete. This allows for a creatively designed and durable swimming pool. It gives you extraordinary options – it’s made from scratch right on site to your exact specifications.

Pros

  • This pool is built exactly how you want in size, shape, and features. You have total design control. Truly unique to your personality and lifestyle!
  • The durability of concrete will last for decades.
  • Best choice to compliment the other elements of your home, patio, and backyard.

Cons

  • The shotcrete pool is the most expensive pool to install; typically, 1 ½ times or more than the cost of a vinyl or fiberglass option.
  • It takes longer time to build a shotcrete pool and requires exact planning and some patience.
  • The concrete wall surface will periodically need to be acid washed to maintain best color.

our Story

Our Story

Scott is the owner of Aqua Palace and the Omaha Pool Builder. I started in this business because I had an extremely frustrating experience shopping for a new hot tub and really thought I could do it better. So I started a shop in Red Oak, Iowa. The first store shared a space with my diesel mechanic shop. It was a tight squeeze, but I had a dream!

While still in Red Oak, I got the chance to build my first pool in Emerson, IA and managed to win a Master Design award! I was shocked and humbled, but most importantly I knew I had to push a little bit harder. So not too long after we packed up and moved to a space in the Mall of the Bluffs and we officially became Aqua Palace. It wasn’t too long before we outgrew that location and we moved a couple of blocks down the street to a 6 acre plot and built our dream indoor and outdoor showroom. Our space, product offerings, passion, knoledge and skills have only continued to grow over the years!

We continue to create award winning residential and commercial pools in and around the Omaha metro!

I love building pools because I get to use my experience in construction and mechanics alongside my love of drawing and design to make truly beautiful recreational spaces come to life. I look forward to having a conversation with you about your own pool project soon!

“I personally oversee the design and installation of each pool we build for our valued customers. No two projects are the same and we love helping create the exact pool you’ve envisioned.”
