The Advantages of Concrete Swimming Pools

Property owners looking to install an in-ground pool can rely on County Materials’ Ready-Mix Concrete for elevated results. Compared to fiberglass and vinyl, concrete swimming pools offer greater design flexibility to achieve any aesthetic. They are entirely customizable and can last a lifetime with proper installation and care. Consider the advantages.

Structural Benefits
Concrete pools are constructed using shotcrete, the method of placing concrete onto steel reinforcements at a high velocity to form vertical and curved surfaces with high compressive strength. Shotcrete is ideal for pool applications, as it forms a dense surface with low porosity and permeability.

Design Flexibility
Constructed on site, concrete pools can achieve any size, shape, or depth. The use of shotcrete maximizes customization and allows for tight radiuses, variable depths, and built-in seats and steps. Lighting may also be installed in the pool shell for ambiance and enhanced safety. Concrete pools are compatible with tile and a variety of pool deck materials, including County Materials’ Grand Discover Pavers (download brochure). 

Durability & Longevity
Concrete is the most reliable pool shell solution. Its unmatched durability and strength protect it against inclement weather and heavy wear. Additionally, concrete resists stains and scratches to preserve its appearance over time. These inherent properties contribute to the pool’s prolonged usage and enjoyment. Properly maintained concrete pools have a service life of at least 50 years and can increase property value.
