Inground PoolsBelle Meade, TN
A cool plunge into your pool to wake up with the dawn. The steady cadence of laps relieving the stresses of the day. Cocktails with friends as the sun goes down. Or the laughter of your kids as they cannonball into the deep end. Whatever your vision is, Pool & Spa Depot can transform your Belle Meade backyard into a welcoming extension of your home. Navigating the process from concept to completion, we’re here to help you every step of the way.
Pool & Spa Depot specializes in the design, manufacture and construction of inground swimming pools tailored to the client’s specifications, which are assembled and installed on site. We install custom inground gunite, vinyl liner and fiberglass pools, as well as above ground, on ground and semi-inground pools.
Concrete pools are the most popular—and most expensive—type of pool. They’re often called Gunite or Shotcrete pools; that’s because we pump wet concrete through a hose and shoot it from a gun onto steel-reinforced walls. Once the concrete cures, it’s plastered, troweled smooth, and painted.
The benefit of concrete is that it can be formed to any size or shape for a truly custom pool. It generally takes longer to build a concrete pool than other types, but concrete is considered the strongest, most durable type of pool. And unlike other in-ground pools, existing concrete pools can be rebuilt, refinished, enlarged, or updated.
Vinyl-lined pools are the second most popular type of in-ground pool, and their numbers are growing. Each pool is made from a one-piece flexible liner that fits into an excavated hole, and is then attached to a steel- or aluminum-framed wall. Vinyl pools come in a limited number of sizes and shapes. Most are rectangular, but L-shape and freeform liners are also available. The average-size vinyl pool can be installed in one to three weeks.
The big danger with a vinyl-lined pool is that pointy pool toys, playful dogs, and sharp objects can rip or puncture the liner. Damaged liners can be fixed, but it’s best to pay extra for a heavy-duty liner that’s at least 20 mm (millimeters) thick.
Fiberglass pools are factory-molded into giant bowl-shaped shells, which are then set into the excavated hole by a crane. And while sizes and shapes are somewhat limited, the big advantage is that a fiberglass pool can be installed in as little as three days. It’s also the most affordable type of in-ground pool.
Another benefit is that fiberglass pools have a super-smooth gel-coat finish that’s extremely durable and nonporous, so these pools tend to use fewer chemicals than concrete pools. But before deciding on a fiberglass pool, be sure you’ve got plenty of space in your backyard for the crane to enter and maneuver. The area must also be free of any overhead wires or power lines.
Semi In-Ground Pools
Want the look of an inground pool for a fraction of the cost? Luckily, there’s an incredible compromise – the Stealth Semi-In Ground Pool.
Exclusive to Pool & Spa Depot, the Stealth Semi-In Ground Pool can achieve the aesthetics of an inground pool for a price much closer to that of an above ground pool.
The Stealth Semi-In Ground Pool can be sunken partially or it can be almost entirely submerged into the ground. This makes it perfect for backyards with a slope and all it takes is some simple decking or stonework to completely hide the walls of the pool.
Cost and aesthetic appeal are only two of the key benefits of a Stealth Semi-In Ground Pool. Here are just a few of the other advantages of this great backyard addition.
- Stealth Semi-In Ground Pools Are Fast and Easy To Install
- Stealth Semi-In Ground Pools Are Durable
- Stealth Semi-In Ground Pools Look Great with a Deck or Paneling
