    I have paid 50% deposit on one of which I have yet to have installed (sorry mate, private matter) from Michael at Lomatec Pools who works out of Pattaya.

    I know he did have some problems initially with the larger pool casts popping out of the ground but my pool is 8.0 m x 4.5 m and as I believe they are as good as gold.

    Google Lomatec and speak to Michael direct and he is probably the best person for all sorts of pools in Thailand.

    thanks so far

    thanks for the quick response, got something to start my search.

    still have a question, Why everybody build a concreet pool glassfiber swimmingpools are a lot quicker and easy more with less mess around are there any snakes on a glassfiber pool.

    what about the costs, fiber or concreet?

    They prolly pefer concrete over fibre as the fibre pools tend to pop out of the ground when they get emptied.

    All pools will pop out of the groud if the water level outside the pool is higher
    than the water inside the pool.
    Fibreglass pool are quicker & cheaper that concrete.
    Installation for a fibreglass pool is 2 to 5 days.
    Here is a website with prices of fibreglass pool

    ...the company you've linked to isn't cheap at all...almost three times more than a company in Rayong that unfortunately doesn't seem to be in business anymore....you can build a concrete pool cheaper than the prices quoted from lagoonapools....1/2 million baht ? for a fiberglass pool?

    lots of people don't like fiberglass pools, if you are building a new house then build the pool at the same time, most people like tiled pools, yes fiberglass or liner pools are quicker to install then try Navinda pools in Phuket

    i used this company also for a fibreglass pool and in the heavy rains of 2013 the pool lifted out of the ground and ruined the pool and all the pipe work.

    decided to use a well known company in 2014 home and pool however this was a mistake the pool a year later has a crack due to poor foundations.

    third time lucky i will have one last go as am now due for retirement, any ideas?

    My pool is concrete and has a hydrostatic valve to prevent it moving if the ground becomes water logged in heavy rain. I think plastic pools would be in even greater need of an HS valve since they will tend to try and 'float' more easily in a deluge.

    Perhaps if the wife cannot be pursued to a new diamond ring, then remains to order a swimming pool from a renowned company in Thailand.

    (unfortunately, that had not been my case), so I had done something by myself (with a help of few):

    Fibreglass pools & Concrete pools will lift if the pool is set to low.
    I watch a fibreglass pool being installed 3 days ago the installer was setting the pool level with the ground right next to a large house.
    I ask why the pool was very low & the installer told me the owner requested
    the pool be install at that height.
    I think this pool will not last the rainy season.
    Some people have no idea about pool.

    Mine has a 100 mm patio then a 200 mm edging. The edging also stops a lot of debris blowing in.
