My wife and I are looking to put in an inground swimming pool this summer, but we realized we have a high water table. It could be 3 feet down, it could be 5 feet down, we have no clue and we know it fluctuates during the seasons as well as daily. We were convinced we wanted a fiberglass pool due to the low maintenance, ease of installation, and durability with dogs nails. We then begin to contemplate and research a vinyl pool and we just recently heard about Radiant pools as well. We definitely want a salt water pool and we want it heated. We have a few questions for the experts here!
Has anyone had any experience with any of these three types of pools in upstate New York with a high water table?
With a fiberglass pool, is there a way to take care of the high water table that is hassle and trouble free? If not, what questions should I be asking?
Do we just go with an aboveground pool, which in our opinion does not look as nice?
Can Radiant pools have varying depth(shallow and deep end)?
What do you recommend, and why?
Also is there any recommendation on size/shape? We are a family of 4, and occasionally will have guests.
