Live in Willow Grove PA - - - Fiberglass or Concrete/need Builde

Good Evening Everyone-

My wife and I are in the market for an in ground pool. We are debating between a concrete and Fiberglass. I want a concrete because of size (I am worried that 16' wide will not be enough). She wants a Fiberglass. CAN ANYONE HELP!!! Any suggestions on both and, what PB can anyone recommend. Any help is greatly appreciated!

That width wouldn't be wide enough for what?

Do you have a large enough property to support a larger pool?

Hi Scott. I do, but I feel that 16 feet wide is not big enough. The pools I'm accustomed to our 20. I also have 6 children. Any suggestions?

6 kids? Wow! God blessed you and your wife.
I will agree with you that a F/G would likely be small for the kids and their crews. That leaves you with a liner or gunite. I think you'll get a better bang for your buck with the liner pool.

Seasonal World in Cream Ridge does all three types, liner, gunite, and fiberglass. I have seen a lot of their liner pools over the years and they do some very nice work.

TopFiftyBuilder is a forum member but I haven't seen him on lately. If you send me contact info via email (click on My Page) I can forward the info to him.
