Inground pools

The pool

The dream of a home of their own is common among almost all people, adolescents and children who look to the future. Very often, however, we do not limit ourselves to the dream of the house, but we imagine and recreate in our mind all or almost the smallest details of how our “nest” should be, especially when we imagine it with our partner, or in any case the person with whom we wish. live the rest of our garden. Obviously, all this will then collide, in the worst case, or simply confront what is reality, or what are the real possibilities due to the work we have or in general to what we can afford. But dreams are not denied to anyone, and one of the most common ones concerning the house is certainly the swimming pool.

Types of pools


A few decades ago, the pools were either the underground ones and built from top to bottom, or they were the inflatable ones almost like children. There was a huge difference between them in price and situations, and for those in the middle it was hard to make a satisfactory choice, saving and settling or fainting. This is what happened long ago, while today the situation has changed: even if the macro categories of swimming pools have remained unchanged (i.e., underground and above ground), industrialization, technologies, production and stylistic progress and above all changes in customs and in the concept of marketing and mass production have caused the birth of many models, adaptable to the most varied possibilities and presentable situations. Above all we remember the modular swimming pools, the tubs, the prefabricated,

Inground pool models

Here we speak in particular of the inground swimming pool, that is, that model of swimming pool that sees its structure hidden in the ground; in this case it is always necessary to prepare an excavation work (more or less large depending on the size of the pool, of course), and then the situations differ according to the chosen model. There are the masonry pools, which is the classic pool with the old concept of digging and tiling the ditch in the shape of a pool: they allow an infinite number of customizations, adapting to the most diverse needs, but also require a higher cost and also a certain resistance and conformation of the ground to withstand the weight and stresses of the whole. Then there are the modular pools, or rather pre-built “tubs” in series that must simply be lowered into the excavation, made to accommodate the shape of the pool: they offer a certain ability to choose in shape and size (there are more and more companies that are dedicated to this branch) and also a certain economic saving, but they are in any case definitive and certainly not within everyone’s reach, as well as a certain sense of standardization. These are the fundamental types of pools, but we also report the inground pools with an exposed structure: they are those that have a larger excavation than the pool, and are very often in rubbery and / or plastic material, to be cheaper and removable, with the lateral space useful for repairs. but they are in any case definitive and certainly not within everyone’s reach, as well as a certain sense of standardization.

Construction materials

Obviously, the construction material of a swimming pool depends first of all on the model we are going to choose, and secondly on the level of quality we want. Let’s start with underground and built pools: the construction material is usually brick or concrete, with the addition of components and specific insulators; but what most discriminates between the various pools is the coating material. And here you can range from tiles, to mosaics, through marble (real luxury) or rubber (perhaps if you have children). For pre-built pools, or modular ones, the matter of the material is less extensive as it must fundamentally also have resistance properties: therefore it is often fiberglass or plastic materials anyway.
