In-ground pools with vinyl liners
An in-ground pool equipped with a vinyl liner can be installed with galvanized steel, resin or polypropylene panels offering strong resistance to periods of frost, a reinforced concrete bottom, a retaining support system on the outside, crushed stone filling and a concrete walkway. The vinyl liner that covers the walls must be replaced every 10 to 15 years to maintain a fresh appearance.
Concrete in-ground pools
Concrete in-ground pools are ideal for large-scale projects. The concrete, which is sprayed directly onto a steel frame at the construction site, offers incomparable durability and can take various forms, for example to create a beach-style entrance or to include a built-in hot tub or waterfall. You can also choose from a variety of tiles in different colors and patterns. Val-Morin Signature Pools is an exclusive supplier of phosphorescent tiles for a unique, eclectic look.
In-ground pools in insulated concrete forms
In-ground pools in insulated concrete forms are designed in Quebec to withstand the rigors of our climate. This type of pool is made from concrete that is poured into molds surrounded by insulation in order to prevent the transfer of heat between the pool water and the concrete structure. This way, it’s possible to keep the water warmer longer. An in-ground pool in an insulated concrete form is energy efficient and can be custom made to suit the needs of the client.
