Vinyl Liner Pool Shapes
Thanks to their lightweight design and materials, vinyl liner swimming pools are quick to install. Depending on factors like the size and complexity of the design, total construction time may be as little as just a few days. Larger, more elaborate pool designs may take a bit longer to install. Most pools can be backfilling the walls within a couple days.

WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN SAVING THOUSANDS $$ BUILDING YOUR OWN POOL.
So, you've made a decision to move forward and order your pool kit, but before you do, let's ensure you know everything that's available to you that will provide even more savings over the life of your pool and enhance your overall swimming experience. I'm going to list my suggestions on the best choices and why, then
depending on your budget, make your final decisions.
1. You're choice of pool pumps
today are either single speed or variable speed. Single speed is always running at full speed. Variable speed pumps can adjust the rpm up and down based on demand. When I run my vsp at 30%(1000rpm) we are talking about consuming 100 watts versus 1800 watts on single speed 1 horsepower pump. This is $15 per month versus over $200 per month with single speed if running it 24hrs per day, which is optimal for circulation, sanitization and filtration.
A Variable Speed Pump pays for itself in just one season. This is the heartbeat of your pool. A great upgrade is the Hayward MaxFlo VS500, or the most efficient VS on the market by independent test standards; Haywards Tristar VS900.
2. Filtration... Sand filters are a great option
and add convenience by having the ability to "backwash" when they get dirty. Backwashing flushes the filter in reverse and sends dirt and debris out a waste line removing water from your pool in the process. For heavily treed yards, this is probably the best choice.
If you want to save your pool water that you have paid $ to heat and to treat with water balancing chemicals, a cartridge filter is the more energy conscious choice. Saving water, saving heat and chemicals, but also filters water particles down to under 10 microns whereas sand filter may be 30-40 microns. Crystal clear water is the best water.
3. Heater options are natural gas,
propane, heat pumps (which consume electricity), solar panels, heat exchangers or geothermal.
Depending on the cost of each resource in your local market and each individuals needs will determine which method you will use. Regardless, of the heater there are pretty basic ways to conserve your heat. Solar blankets and delivering return water to the bottom of your pool for starters.
This is where if you ask 10 pool builders their opinion you will most likely have 6 using salt chlorination, 3 using a UV System + chlorine puck feeder and 1 using just a chlorine puck feeder. Let's start by just laying it out that you no matter what you use to disenfect and sanitize your water, you NEED to maintain a chlorine residual in the pool. Salt systems manufacture 100% pure chlorine at the equipment pad after introducing enough salt into the pool to raise salt level to 3000+ parts per million. (PPM) This chlorine differs from other forms as it's not combined with binders and other materials. Other forms range from 14% to 35% actual chlorine. The chlorine produced via salt is closer in pH to our target pH (7.4-7.6) which means less pH down chemical to purchase. Having salt (NaCl) chlorination for your pool water has other benefits for your skin, eliminates eye irritation and eliminates the spikes of high chlorine.. low chlorine.., as its consistent.
Where some negative experiences with salt stems from are typically in cases where the chlorine wasn't checked often enough and the salt system produced chlorine and no one turned the system to an appropriate desired output. This could fade a liner prematurely. Other scenarios where pool water with higher levels of salt dry up on pool deck and a white residue remains. I do prefer pools with Salt Systems and my preference is using Hayward Low Salt systems which operate best using 30-50% less salt than any other brands on the market. Unlikely to ever over produce chlorine and no residue and no negative impact on any other pool equipment.
UV (ultraviolet) bulbs are a great option as a supplement to chlorine pucks to reduce chlorine demand and kill bacteria in the water.
You still need to introduce small amount of chlorine to maintain a 1-3ppm of chlorine. So a UV system would reduce chemical $ consumption or ultimately extend the life of your salt cell by allowing you to run it less, thus extending the hours of its lifespan.
Old fashion chlorine pucks in an "inline" or "offline" chlorinator is always the economical, low cost up front way of doing it but, over the lifespan of the other units/methods, you will pay the same amount or more$ in pucks, shock, balancers and those times where you forget to treat your water and it goes green and cloudy... those mistakes can add up.
5. Lighting...LEDs are standard
and most builders are using multiple smaller lights positioned throughout the pool opposed to single large leds to illuminate and flood the entire pool eliminating dead zones.
Small return jet Hayward ColorLogic leds are 1.5" and easy to install without the need to winterize every year. Just leave them in the wall.
6. Automatic vacuums. Choices are Robotic
, which are plug n play and contain all the dirt and debris inside of itself in a canister or filter cartridges or you can use a suction cleaner that connect to either your skimmer suction or independent suction line, pulls all the dirt and debris through to your pump and filter.
Running this style of cleaner will have you back washing your sand filter or cleaning your cartridge periodically. Another method is in floor cleaning which feature nozzles installed in your pool to direct dirt and debris down to a maindrain to collect and capture in a canister deckside or at the equipment pad. More labour but your pool can clean itself.
7. Water features. You're saving money buying online. That's an opportunity to get those extra features that are show stoppers and impress guests. Waterfalls or sheer water curtains create soothing and relaxing "spa like" white noise while deck jets, LED laminars and bubblers add a new level of excitement for the kids and evening ambiance. You're doing this once.
I put two small sheer descent waterfalls (both 1' long) on a raised wall,
two LED laminar jets shooting up from behind the raised wall into the pool and two basic bubblers in my walk in steps. I wish I had of installed color LED bubblers instead of bubbler without lights. Oh well..
The water features are without a doubt the best part of the pool for my wife and I, and controlling every part of the pool and landscape from our smart phones using Hayward Omnilogic Controls is the icing on the cake.
Control your pump speeds, schedules, lighting, heater temp, waterfalls, bubblers, laminars, outdoor landscape lighting, water balance, robotic cleaners and more. From anywhere, anytime.
