Why fiberglass pools?


1) Faster installation

Fiberglass pools can be installed in a few days. That’s because these pools are installed as one piece. Once the shell is manufactured, it can typically be installed within a week or so. Also, the installation isn’t as dependent on the weather as other pools are. Both vinyl liner pools and concrete pools require specific weather conditions to prevent damage during installation. While fiberglass pools do require ideal conditions—mostly for the safety of the installers—the fiberglass itself is not as vulnerable to adverse conditions like rain or sharp temperature fluctuations.

2) Durability
Fiberglass pools are stronger, more durable and less likely to be damaged. This means less damage risk and lower overall maintenance costs over the life of the pool.

3) Lower maintenance
Fiberglass swimming pools are known for being virtually maintenance-free. That’s in part because of the durability mentioned above, but also because fiberglass offers a smooth, less porous surface. The smoother surface prevents algae growth, which is common with other pools that have more crevices (especially concrete). Customers with fiberglass pools report spending less time cleaning and maintaining their pools each week, in addition to lower long-term maintenance.

4) No liner replacement or resurfacing needed
All vinyl liners eventually need to be replaced. But with fiberglass pools, there is no liner. This is a large expense that fiberglass pool owners are happy to never have to deal with. Concrete pools also need their own maintenance to keep them clean and well-maintained: it’s recommended to have concrete pools acid-washed and even resurfaced every few years. These are additional concerns that fiberglass pool owners don’t have to worry about.

5) Lower lifetime cost
A swimming pool, of any type, is a great investment that will continue to offer benefits to your family for years to come. But it’s important to remember that maintaining your pool is also crucial for protecting your investment, and that maintenance comes with additional costs over the long term. Fiberglass pools typically have a higher upfront cost than vinyl liner pools, for example. But when you consider the low maintenance and other benefits, fiberglass pools ultimately cost you less to own over the long term.
