What is your pool built out of?

Are you looking to add some summer fun to your backyard? A pool is a great way to entertain guest, your kids, and help yourself relax during the heat of the summer. Just like in all parts of landscaping pools come in all different shapes, sizes, and types.  How do you know what pool best suits your needs? Salt versus chlorine, kidney-shaped verses custom, fiberglass versus concrete versus vinyl liner. These are all decisions that will have to be made.  Last week we discussed the water type, now lets talk about building materials.
