    where do I begin? Fiberglass, vinyl, gunite etc...

    Were builidng a house and want a pool. Never owned a pool and know nothing about them. The breif research i've done i like what i see about fiberglass and the install time.

    Give me the good, the bad and the ugly on pools!

    We want to spend $25-35k, we'll be doing our own landscaping. thanks for any help!

    Welcome to TFP!

    All of the surfaces have their advantages and disadvantages. I see your price range, but what are you looking for in a pool? Size? Features? What is it about fiberglass that you particularly liked? Answers to these questions are helpful.

    Check out this article, it may help. It's a non-biased look at the advantages and disadvantages of vinyl, concrete, and fiberglass. http://www.riverpoolsandspas.com/blog/b ... Comparison.
    hope it helps!
