Steel Vs Polymer

Steel won't Break. Polymer won't Bend.


Steel panels are stronger than the polymer panels, and more compatible with rocky clay or soil. As the stronger of the two, choosing a steel kit means that you’ll only need to worry about installing extra support if you’re planning on building your pool along a hillside.


While steel will not break, polymer will not bend. Do you have softer soil you’re working with? If so, polymer may be the perfect pool kit to choose, as it’s compatible with acidic soil. One of the greatest benefits of polymer pool kits is their lightweight nature, which means that they're relatively easy to install, and offer a high resistance to most types of underground deterioration. Their panels are also impressively strong, thanks to the extensive research and engineering that backs it up.
