Fiberglass Pools – Durable, Affordable, and Beautiful.
A fiberglass pool is a pool made of fiberglass or acrylic. The pool is pre-made and can be trucked to a customer’s home in one piece or in panels that can be assembled on site. This makes the installation process much quicker compared to the months it might take to install a concrete pool that has to be constructed on site with a many-step process and a large crew.
Benefits of a Fiberglass Pool
There are many things that make a fiberglass pool unique and different from a concrete or gunite pool. Compared to a concrete or gunite pool, the fiberglass option reduces the price of the pool installation considerably. It gives the customer the option of adding other features to their backyard. A customer who saves a thousand dollars on a pool installation might want to use that money for the decking, a fireplace/firepit or landscaping work.
Compared to concrete pools, fiberglass pools have distinct advantages. The fiberglass option needs less repairs and maintenance. The surface isn’t porous so there is no need for excessive chemicals to keep the water clean. This means it is safer for families and less harsh on swim suits. Every few years, other pools have to be repainted and repaired. Fiberglass pools never require painting. They require fewer repairs than other pools too.
The fiberglass pool is pre-made. The pool can be trucked into the customer’s backyard and installed fairly quickly after the hole is made in the ground. This can cut weeks off the installation time compared to other types of pool installations.
In colder climates, fiberglass pools won’t break or crack due to ground freezing like some other pool types. The fiberglass pool will flex due to changing ground conditions, which means they won’t need to be repaired.
Fiberglass pools are smooth. They are made with non-abrasive surfaces that won’t scrape or cut a swimmer’s feet like the bottom of some concrete or gunite pools. There are no rocks, cement chips or rough pieces of concrete on the bottom of a fiberglass pool.
Sizes, Shapes, Colors and Finishes
There are dozens of shapes to the fiberglass pool. The customer can choose the perfect option for their backyard and their lifestyle. Years ago, there was one rectangular shape of fiberglass pool, but now, there are dozens of choices along with shapes that include tanning ledges, edge seating or spa. There are squares, circles, rectangles and ovals depending on the customer’s preference. There are also lap pools made of fiberglass.
There are many colors and finishes available for fiberglass too. From light polished marble in a pink tone to dark-flecked, smooth river rock, there are many colors and finishes for the fiberglass pool. Whether the customer wants a light finish or a dark one, there are choices for every taste.
The customer who chooses a fiberglass pool will be getting a durable pool with a smooth finish that will last for years. The pool’s fast installation allows the customer to enjoy their pool sooner than they expected, and because of the fiberglass surface, there will be less maintenance and repairs. This lets the customer enjoy their pool for a long time.
