A brief Internet search yields many results: every type of swimming pool material is said to be “the best,” with an endless array of pool builders touting the benefits of their chosen material. Which pool material is best? We believe that history speaks for itself (and our thousands of happy customers also speak quite loudly). For so many reasons, concrete is the material of choice for your backyard swimming pool. But don’t just take our word for it; here are 7 compelling ways a concrete swimming pool is the best choice.

You don’t have to settle for a cookie cutter pool

Pre-fabricated pools can be a good choice for those who just want a small, quickly installed space to enjoy the water in their backyard. But such pools are factory-made, uniform designs that don’t leave room for any individuality or customisation. For the discerning customer seeking to build their dream pool, you deserve better than settling for a cookie cutter swimming pool. Choose concrete and relish the endless possibilities with size, depth, and shape.

Concrete lasts forever

Concrete is well known as a durable construction material that truly goes the distance. While forever is a long time, your concrete swimming pool should certainly remain in great shape for many years to come. Of course, pool usage and chemicals do take their toll—most concrete pools require a resurfacing perhaps every 10-15 years. With proper maintenance, your concrete pool will be a long-lasting element that adds enormous value to your home.

A swimming pool is a major investment and should not be taken lightly. Concrete is worth every penny

It’s no secret that installing a swimming pool is a fairly significant investment. For this reason, it’s vital that you make the right choice that offers the most benefits. For its durability & flexibility of design, concrete is the best option for a swimming pool. But it also is a material that is associated with luxury, stability, and worth. Concrete pools help to increase the value of your property over time, and because of this, the investment is a wise one.

You won’t need to fully replace the pool in the future

When researching swimming pool design, other pool materials may seem attractive because of low upfront costs and quick installation. However, many of these options will need a full replacement within several years. Over the life of your pool, this could end up costing you excessively. While concrete swimming pools are typically a larger investment at the start, they rarely need a total redoing, and can last for decades.

Because the pros trust concrete swimming pools

There’s a reason many of Wollongong and Sydney’s leading pool builders trust concrete as the material of choice. Over time, it has proven itself again and again to be the top option for beautiful backyard swimming pools that homeowners love. You’ll be proud to show off your gorgeous concrete pool that enhances your yard and benefits your property value….and it is for this reason (and more) that the pros trust concrete most avidly.

In a swimming pool, this means that concrete will keep your water warmer, radiating the absorbed heat of the sun. When you’re looking for a refreshing swim at any time of year, concrete will ensure your pool is the ideal temperature.
