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.

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.

If you are comparing both concrete and fiberglass pool.I think it is better if you opt for fiberglass pools.I have a fiberglass pool and the maintenance is pretty less compared to concrete pools.They require more maintenance and they have to be frequently swept with a pool brush to get rid of the algal growth.Fiberglass pools are pretty safe around kids.We even have build in seats so that I could watch over him whenever he gets out into the pool.Here is an article that gives an accurate comparision between different kinds of swimming pools Fiberglass-Pools-vs-Vinyl-Liner-Pools-vs-Concrete-Pools-An-Honest-Comparison. You could check that out.
