In-Ground Swimming Pools – A More Functional Option
Making the decision to add a backyard swimming pool to a particular landscape is just the start. Once this choice is made, there will still be the question of style. This issue will center on whether a pool should be above ground or in-ground. When the pros and cons are explored, it will quickly become evident that in-ground swimming pools wins out on the functionality front and long term.
When constructed with gunite, in-ground pools can withstand all weather conditions without depreciating in strength and value.
Gunite pools have become a highly sought-after choice for residences because of the unlimited design options. The designer could come up with different exquisite designs of varying sizes and shapes. Due to its adaptability, it is very easy to add waterfalls, water sculptures, sheer descents and grottos. A spa can also be included making it more luxurious and beautiful. Gunite pools are simply wonderful.
A well designed gunite swimming pool alongside the perfect landscaping could be a lifetime source of fun and entertainment for entire families.
By their very nature, in-ground pools are highly flexible in design. When the choice is made to go this route perhaps with investment in mind, the potential returns will be mind-blowing. Whilst there is no denying that in-ground pools do require a greater investment, they can fit into a backyard landscape better and offer improved functionality on a number of fronts.
The benefits of going in-ground swimming pools include:
In-ground swimming pools provide more functionality than its peers. This is an investment that will keep on giving years after construction is completed.

"I moved to Pleasant Valley in Duchess County on June 1, 2016. Coming from Los Angeles California, I had already had one pool-building experience, and was keen to put in a pool on my new horse farm property. Jesse Conklin returned my initial inquiry promptly, and came out to the property to discuss all possibilities regarding the creation of a new pool. He could not have been more accommodating and informative. Jesse helped me through the paper work, the permits, and promised me (yes, promised!) that I would be swimming before the summer was over. He not only made good on that promise, but he and his crew created the most perfect pool for me and my family. They chose the perfect setting, they were consistent with their time-table, and whenever I had any question, Jesse was always always on hand with a prompt response. he and his crew created our perfect pool in less than a month. Every swim is, seriously, like a vacation in paradise. I wish we could do the whole experience all over again! This is the second pool I have had built in my life time, and I have to say that Conklin Pools will bring you the pool of your dreams, and beyond."
"When we finally decided to put a pool in at our home in Stone Ridge, NY, we talked to numerous friends who had put in pools and nobody was happy with their pool contractor. Even our home contractor couldn't recommend the person he had used to install his own pool. We were then referred to Jessie Conklin by our landscape designer. The reviews from his clients, with whom we spoke, seemed too good to be true. We decided to move forward with Jessie and we now have a dark bottom 36x14 gunite pool with blue stone coping and patio that is breathtaking. Its changed our life upstate and we cannot keep our friends and family away. In addition, Jessie recommended an autocover, which is one of the best decisions we could have made. It keeps the pool spotless, warm (we haven't used the heater all summer!) and most importantly, has allowed us to relax and not worry about our young children since they don't have the code to unlock the cover. Every suggestion Jessie made proved to be a good one, from the autocover to the 2 benches in the deep-end where we relax and chat with friends, drink wine and create a destination for our children when they are swimming the length of the pool. In addition to delivering a pool that exceeded our expectations in appearance and functionality, everything about the process with Jessie was seamless and easy. Jessie told us the pool would take 30 - 40 days from breaking ground to completion, and it did - we were shocked! There were no hidden fees and no surprises - the final price was in-line with the estimate and lastly, Jessie was (and continues to be) completely accessible, answering every call and tweaking every detail to deliver perfection. We cannot say enough good things about Jessie and Conklin Pools
"Before having our pool built, my wife and I did extensive research on the various types of residential pools as well as vetting many tri state area contractors. When it comes to a major project involving excavation, masonry, plumbing, and electrical work, you need a highly competent contractor. After doing our due diligence, Conklin Pools was the clear winner. No other contractor even came close. Jesse’s aesthetic sensibilities and attention to detail assure you get what you want. The cost of the project was fair to both of us, and the overall value is the best you are going to get, anywhere. Quality was evident throughout the construction process. Conklin Pools committed to finish the job in a far shorter time period than did anyone else and they delivered! Jesse is onsite the entire time, and the project was on time and on budget. His crew is skilled, friendly, courteous, and maintains the jobsite in an orderly fashion. Aftercare is great. Jesse is always a quick call or text away. Bottom line: if you need to build a pool that you will enjoy forever, Conklin Pools is your contractor
"My swimming pool was built by a different contractor 3 years ago. When I opened my pool for the season, there were cracks everywhere and the tile and stones were falling off the walls. I called Conklin Pools and Jesse came out to look at it. After he scuba dove it and took some measurements, he told me he would be able to get it up and running like new. Needless to say, they did a phenomenal job and I would highly recommend Conklin Pools for any type of pool renovations.
"Right from the start and throughout our entire project, Jesse was there every step of the way. Whenever we had questions or other decisions to make, he always gave us a timely response. He listened to our wants and needs and had it all come together perfectly.
