    Smile Question on gunite or fiberglass

    Hi all,

    I'm new to the site and new to forums. I am interested in installing a pool at my home in Hawaii and was interested in opinions as to the dependability of inground fiberglass pools compared to gunite. I also heard fiberglass pools were cheaper. I've been reading this site for a while and already learned much and would like to hear from experienced owners. Thanks and aloha.

    Welcome to TFP MindenMike.

    When it comes down to which pool should I chose, I'm going to say it's all a personal choice. Fiberglass may be cheaper where you are located. But do you like the look of gunite better? You will certainly get more of a choice on style and depth with a gunite pool over a fiberglass pool. Decisions, Decisions... I'm sure others will comment shortly.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Welcome to the forum!

    IMO it's more about budget. If you can afford a Gunite pool, go that route. The shapes and designs you can have are only limited by your imagination and a little by your topography, then the available space. FG pools do come in a variety of shapes, but they are limited. No question if you are asking me.
