What better way to enhance the functionality and aesthetic of your yard in Central Pennsylvania than with an inground pool? Whether you want to connect with others or spend some quiet time alone, a swimming pool has a way of making home your favorite destination.
One of the best things about inground pools is that they can be seamlessly integrated into almost any backyard design, enabling you to completely transform your outdoor environment. With a range of shapes, sizes, and features available, you can choose a pool design that best fits your outdoor space. Whether you prefer traditional or trendy, our seasoned pool professionals can create a beautiful inground pool that suits your style and budget
The definitive difference between these pool types are the materials with which they are constructed and/or lined. Each pool type involves a different level of customizability and complexity which, in turn, affects the timeline and cost of the construction project.
A fiberglass pool is a type of inground pool that is made of fiberglass and coated with a protective material. At Goodall, we install Latham Fiberglass Pools which are coated with a polyester resin. The pool shell is manufactured off-site and then transported to your property, where it is lowered into an excavated hole and secured in place. Fiberglass pools are known for their durability, low maintenance requirements, and smooth surface.
Fiberglass pools come with predetermined sizes, shapes, depths, and colors that are set by the manufacturer. However, many models can be personalized with the inclusion of unique features such as LED lighting, tanning ledges, tile work, and particular water features.
On average, the construction timeline for a fiberglass pool installation is 3 to 4 weeks; that is how long it typically takes to install the pool and fill it with water. However, other aspects of your backyard project may take longer to complete depending on the overall scope of work.
The cost of any pool project varies based on several factors like the pool size, included features, and even excavation work in your backyard. However, just like vinyl-liner pools, fiberglass pools are considered to be an affordable option for homeowners looking to install a pool
A vinyl-liner pool is a type of inground pool that is constructed with a reinforced metal frame and then lined with a heavy-duty vinyl material. The liner is custom-fit to the shape and size of the pool and serves as a waterproof barrier between the water and the frame. Vinyl-liner pools are known for their versatility as well as the wide range of shapes, sizes, and colors available. Owners of vinyl-liner pools should be aware that the liner will need to be replaced every 10 to 15 years on average due to substantial use and exposure to the elements.
Vinyl-liner pools provide a high level of customization as owners can choose from a wide range of sizes, shapes (both geometric and freeform ), and multiple colors and patterns for the liner (e.g., classic blue, jade, earthy tan, etc.). The liner's flexible nature enables easy integration of unique structural elements such as tanning ledges, custom staircases, and various water features like bubblers, cascades, and deck jets.
The average construction for a vinyl-liner pool is 6 to 8 weeks; that is how long it typically takes to install the pool and fill it with water. However, other aspects of your backyard project may take longer to complete depending on the overall scope of work.
The cost of any pool project varies based on several factors like the pool size, included features, and even excavation work in your backyard. However, just like fiberglass, vinyl-liner pools are considered to be an affordable option for homeowners looking to install a pool.
Biodesign Pools, also known as “beach pools,” are a more recent development in the inground pool market. They are designed and constructed in such a way that they resemble a natural body of water with a beach style entry.
Our Beach Pools by Biodesign are designed in a freeform or geometric shape, with the outline, depth, contours, and color being more adjustable to accommodate the space and your preferences. Due to their structural and material elements, our Beach Pools can only be up to a maximum of 6’ deep.
Construction time for a Beach Pool is between 4 and 5 weeks on average; that is how long it typically takes to install the pool and fill it with water. However, other aspects of your backyard project may take longer to complete depending on the overall scope of work.
Our Beach Pools by Biodesign are comparable to luxury concrete pools in terms of cost. The overall price can vary based on several factors including the pool size, features, and even excavation work in your backyard. However, their highly specialized composition puts them in the six-figure range for most projects.

Knowledgeable, friendly staff and technicians who deliver amazing customer service. As a new home and pool owner, I was overwhelmed when I took the cover off for the first time this season and found a pool that literally looked like a swamp. Bob Goodall and his army of pool experts took my pool from a murky green nightmare to crystal clear, beautiful water in no time. I can’t thank them enough!
Always responsive and professional. Helped us renovate a 20-year old pool and taught us the ropes on what to keep my eye on with our various pool components through their excellent Gold Member service. They keep the pool clean and sparkling blue. We’ve enjoyed interacting with every person we’ve met there from the owners onwards. Truly a unique and solidly family owned business that we need more of. Thank you!
Designed and installed a resort-feel beautiful pool with lots of features. We absolutely love it. The store employees are wonderful about testing our pool water (no matter how many times I take samples in) and explaining the computer printout that tells me exactly how much of each chemical my pool needs. I highly recommend Goodall Pools!
Since we are new to the hot tub experience, we had a lot of questions and concerns. Adam at Goodall Pools/Spas was most professional and extremely patient making sure we understood the process of maintaining our hot tub. He printed out and walked us through all the instructions we required to keep our hot tub sparkling clean.
