If you have found me, your probably sold on a fiberglass pool. I have installed everything except concrete pools and I think it is the best choice especially if you donít need a lot of depth.† In fact, it is the only segment of the pool market that is growing.† The trend is smaller swimming pools, less maintenance, a quicker installation and trading pool size for more features.†Fiberglass is best for all of these reasons and because of the free form designs.†
Another trend is people are willing to put more sweat equity in their home projects to save money.† Although I still do complete swimming pool installations from start to finish, about half the time I am only installing the shell and the homeowner is subcontracting out the concrete, buying and installing a portion of there own equipment and want to learn how to winterize and open their own swimming pools.†
I am fortunate to be the Northern Illinois, Southern Wisconsin and Eastern Iowa distributor for Trilogy Pools. Although I have installed shells from other manufacturers, in my opinion Trilogy Pools offers the best combination of quality and price.
