Vinyl - Vinyl liner pools have a lower initial cost. These pools are the most inexpensive to install and can be easily customized to the shape that you want. They can be designed with smooth interior for disruption in algae growth as well. Although they have a lower initial cost, the liner does not last long - only 5-9 years. In the long run, these pools may end up costing more due to maintenance and vinyl liner replacement.
