Toronto’s frigid winters and sharp winds may persuade residents to remain indoors. However, that does not stop families from looking forward to the warmth and comfort of the summer months. A swimming pool in your own back yard is a perfect way to enjoy your hot summer days conveniently – right here in Toronto. If you are looking for an economical, low-maintenance pool, look no further than a vinyl liner pool.

Once you have decided it’s time to invest in a new pool in your backyard, it’s time to decide which type of pool you want. The most common options are fiberglass and vinyl.
As custom pool contractors, we specialize in both fiberglass and vinyl pools. We highly recommend vinyl liner pools if you are looking for an affordable, customizable and low-maintenance option. Here are some of the top benefits of vinyl pools:
Quick to Install – A vinyl inground pool takes no more than a week to install. A concrete pool, on the other hand, takes months to complete. If you want to have your pool ready in time for summer, a vinyl pool is a great option.
Affordable – Installing a vinyl pool costs far less than a concrete pool, making it a highly cost-effective option of all the pool options. Of course, a new pool is a huge investment. However, a vinyl pool costs less than concrete or fiberglass.
Low Maintenance – Vinyl liner pools do need maintenance, but not as elaborate as other pools. The smooth surface of the vinyl liner keeps away tiny particles and contaminants, which ensures the water remains clean.
Perfect for Canadian Winters – Concrete pools can be sensitive to the freeze-thaw cycles that are common in colder climates. However, because vinyl pools are built using a polymer or steel shell, they do not contract or expand as much, ensuring they remain intact even in the frigid temperatures of Toronto and Vaughan.
A Range of Design Options – Here are GTA Landscaping, we can design vinyl liners for pools of any size or shape including pools with water features, tanning ledges and spillover spas. We can also design your vinyl liner pool with a deeper end.
Customization – Vinyl liners are available in a range of colors, thicknesses and patterns, allowing you to design a pool that suits your taste and needs.
Custom Vinyl Pool Cost in Toronto, Ontario
The average cost of an inground vinyl pool ranges between $25,000 and $90,000. This depends on a variety of factors like the size of the pool, the shape, optional features you choose, the coping type, the type of steps you choose and the wall panel being used.
For example, a small vinyl pool may cost less than a large free-form pool. Similarly, a semi-inground pool can cost less than a completely inground vinyl liner pool.
The cost of your vinyl pool also varies from region to region. For example, building a custom pool in Toronto and Vaughan can differ from the rates quoted in other parts of Ontario.
Vinyl Pool Construction Process
Building a vinyl pool from scratch can take anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks. Here’s a look at the process we follow to build your custom pool in Vaughan:
Stage 1: Excavation – The first step is to dig a hole to accommodate the vinyl pool shell. As your custom pool builder, we will dig a hole that is 30 inches bigger than the shell to accommodate the braces that will support the wall panels. This stage can take up to 2 days.
Stage 2: Wall Panel Assembly Next, our team will bolt the wall panels in place using braces for support. We will also install steps during this phase.
Stage 3: Concrete Footing – Once the perimeter wall has been installed, our custom pool builders will pour a concrete footing around the structure's outside perimeter to lock the panels in place.
