Benefits of Concrete Pools

Choosing which type of swimming pool to install is a game-changing decision. There are many benefits of concrete pools including durability and luxury. Concrete pools empower homeowners to build their idea of the perfect bespoke backyard oasis that they can enjoy for decades to come.

Let’s dive into the benefits of concrete pools a bit deeper:

1. Custom design
Concrete pools offer many benefits that make them a popular choice for homeowners seeking a customizable, durable, and long-lasting swimming pool solution. One of the most significant advantages of concrete pools is their versatility in design. Unlike pre-fabricated options, concrete pools can be tailor-made to fit any shape, size, decking texture, or contour, allowing homeowners to create a unique and personalized aquatic oasis that seamlessly integrates with their outdoor environment.
2. Durability
Durability is another key advantage of concrete pools. They are constructed using a reinforced framework and sprayed with a mixture of concrete, which provides exceptional strength and longevity. This robust construction ensures that concrete pools can withstand the test of time, resisting wear and tear, ground shifting, and the natural elements. With proper maintenance, a well-built concrete pool can serve as a centerpiece of a property for decades.
3. Luxury Features
From outdoor kitchens and in-deck seating, to vanishing edges, beach entries, fire pits, and custom steps, you can let your imagination run wild when designing a concrete pool. Our swimming pool contractors in North Carolina want to help you build your wildest dream pool!
4. Lifespan
When maintained properly, concrete pools have one of the longest lifespans when it comes to inground pools. A concrete pool can last up to 50-75 years when properly installed and cared for over time.

Remember that proper installation, regular maintenance, and careful use of the pool will contribute to maximizing the benefits and lifespan of concrete pools. It's also essential to consult with pool professionals or swimming pool contractors to ensure your specific needs and preferences are met.

4. Waterfalls and Fountains
Adding a waterfall or fountain feature can create a beautiful and soothing ambiance. These water features can be customized to fit the design of your pool.

6. Diving Boards and Slides
If your pool has sufficient depth, you can install a diving board or slide for additional fun and entertainment. Make sure to check local regulations and safety guidelines.
7. Pool Automation Systems
Automation systems allow you to control various pool functions, such as lighting, heating, and filtration, using a remote control or mobile app. They can provide convenience and energy efficiency.
8. Pool Lighting
Underwater and above-water lighting can be installed to create a visually appealing and safe swimming environment. LED lights are a popular choice due to their energy efficiency and longevity.
9. Pool Landscaping
Enhance the pool area with landscaping features like plants, trees, shrubs, and flower beds. They can add beauty, privacy, and a natural feel to your pool environment.
10. Pool Safety Features
Install safety measures like pool handrails, ladders, pool fences, alarms, or pool covers with safety features to ensure the well-being of swimmers, particularly if you have children or pets.

Remember to consult with professional pool builders or pool contractors who can provide expert advice based on your specific needs and preferences. They will help you choose the right features and ensure proper concrete pools' installation.

Designing a Luxury Concrete Pool

Concrete pools offer a variety of options for customization, including shape, size, texture, water features, and color. Here are some common options to consider:

Pool shape

Concrete pools can be customized to fit almost any shape, from traditional rectangular or oval shapes to more unique shapes such as kidney or freeform.


Concrete pools are customized based on your budget, style, and backyard space.

Deck pattern

Your concrete pool will be fully designed to your taste. Choose between decking textures, pool colors, and additional materials or designs that will make your luxury pool a resort-style experience.


The depth of a concrete pool can be customized based on your needs and preferences. For example, if you install a diving board or water slide, you'll likely need at least 8 feet.

Additional features

Concrete pools can include water features such as outdoor kitchens, infinity ledges, or waterfalls. These features can enhance the functionality and enjoyment of your pool.

Concrete Pool Construction Process

Concrete pool construction and installation does take a bit longer than fiberglass pool or even vinyl pool installation, but for the ultimate backyard resort experience, it’s worth the wait.

Weather conditions

The weather in your area can have a big impact on the pool building process. In general, it's best to start building a pool when the weather is mild and dry. This will ensure that the concrete pool construction process goes smoothly and that the pool can be finished on time.

1How much are concrete pools?

2What is the difference between a concrete and gunite pool?
In researching the advantages of concrete, you may also come across gunite as a possible material for your pool. Gunite is actually a type of concrete, made up of cement, sand, and water. Concrete is made of cement, sand, and crushed stone or gravel. The biggest difference between the two in terms of pool construction is in the methods used to install the pool. Gunite is sprayed onto a framework of steel reinforcing bars, while concrete is poured into a pre-built mold. Both are extremely durable and long-lasting.
3Can you have salt water concrete pools?
If you have your heart set on a salt water pool, there’s good news: salt water is safe to use in a concrete pool. While it’s true that salt may be more abrasive on concrete, you can prevent staining or war by tiling your pool, replastering, or applying acrylic concrete seals.
