New swimming pool

My preference is a gunite pool. Years down the line you are able to resurface or repair the pool relatively easily.

Fiberglass is not as tolerant to surfacing or repairs, though many find it easier to maintain.

A good fiberglass pool will not give you any problems, but neither will a well-finished gunite pool.

In making the decision, budget is usually one of the key factors.

See this swimming pool discussion about gunite/ concrete vs. fiberglass.

Good luck with the new pool and keep us posted of developments.

Once the pool is filled, perhaps we can give you some guidance as to the maintenance of your new pool.
