Inground Vinyl Pools

Secard Pools and Spas

inground-vinyl-pool-1Starting at $21,950

This is not your traditional “cement pond”!

Our completely in ground vinyl lined pools take the look of a traditional concrete pool, wrap it in vinyl and hand craft it for a fraction of the price. From a distance, you would swear that you were looking at a concrete pool. The difference is noticed when you dive in and glide smoothly against the sides of the pool. There’s no feeling like the soft warm touch of vinyl against your hands, feet and body.

Whats included with an Inground Vinyl Pool?

Everything! Well, almost everything. Don’t be fooled by other ads out there for “Pool packages starting at only $22,000!” Their price doesn’t include a number of necessary items such as permits, decking and more. Our in ground vinyl pool prices include all necessary permits, excavation, dirt haul, electrical, coping, decking, lighting, filtration equipment and best of yet, our smiling faces. I know what you’re thinking now. What’s not included? I hate to say that you’re on your own for the water and the sun tan lotion. Sorry.

Vinyl?

Yes, vinyl! Vinyl swimming pools originated on the east coast to offer an option that could better flex with the ground’s freeze/thaw cycles. See, when the ground freezes, gunite (concrete) pools tend to crack. Now a days vinyl pools take up a large percentage of all pools built east of the Mississippi. Here in the Golden state, we adopted vinyl for its flexibility, affordability and the big one its earthquake resistant! Yep, I said it, earthquake resistant. Our in ground vinyl pools have been proven to stand up against shakers up to a 7.5 magnitude with no damage.

Vinyl (a natural insulator) also tends to keep pools 5 – 10 degrees warmer throughout the year. Additionally, because vinyl is a non porous surface it’s much easier to clean. There’s no need to ever acid wash, or feel the burn of scrubbing stains as you do in a concrete pool. The soft nature of vinyl is probably one of its best claims to fame. Have you ever used a slip and slide? Wet it down, run, jump and glide down to the cool abyss at the end of the mat with an ear to ear grin. Now try bellowing down the sidewalk head first in a swim suit and you’ll understand.

Installation

Consultation

“A picture is worth a thousand words”. That’s a great quote but we feel that actually touching a product is worth a million. While we’re very proud of ourselves for this website and all of the pretty pictures, we really want you to meet our products face to face. We have an Islander pool on display at every one of our 10 locations. Touch it, feel it, swim in it! Once you’ve dried off, one of our representatives will discuss information with you that will help us in the design process such as potential size, layout, available options, and financing plans.
