Standard Concrete Pools
Standard concrete swimming pools are rebar reinforced pools that are constructed with concrete and plaster. They are known for their ultimate flexibility to be “free form” to create unique inground swimming pool designs; concrete pools aren’t limited to specific shapes and sizes. These pools have a reputation to be strong and permanent fixtures in your backyard; however, over time, concrete pools need to get re-plastered and/or refinished as cracks form.
The Penguin Pool Concrete Swimming Pool
Penguin Pools goes with a different approach to the standard concrete pool. Our concrete swimming pools don’t crack and are much stronger than a standard concrete pool. We use latest in concrete pool technology: Newlander Armor Pools. Armor Pools are technically considered a fiberglass pool, but are used when concrete pools aren’t a feasible option for a backyard. Penguin Pools uses Newlander Armor Pools, because all the rules of what a concrete pool can and can’t do, are thrown out.

Why Penguin Pools Uses Newlander Armor Pools
Penguin Pools did our homework before we decided to adopt Newland Armor for our Southeastern Wisconsin concrete pools. We wanted to make sure that it could stand up to harsh winters and that it was durable. Newlander has proved itself again and again. But don’t just take our word for it, look at all the locations around the world where Newlander is being used.
