I was dead set on Liner, but today I spent a few hours with a Gunite company and after looking at 5-6 pools they installed I am going to see what they can do for me.
A few things I like are the Pebbletec, after I saw this in person it is stunning, and I also love how most of their pool builds do not have decking all the way around it, the landscaping comes right up to the Coping, it looked Outstanding IMO. You can not really do that with a liner pool so you have wasted square footage of decking that could be better utilized.
I did not get a quote, I plan to do that next. All of the pools they showed me had the in floor cleaning system, they highly recommend it, it sounded like a good idea, but I am not sure. I was also surprised they said about half their customers never even cover their pool, very interesting.
I am open to anyones opinions or thoughts on this.
