Benefits

Fiberglass is the product of choice for quality in-ground pools for the following reasons:

  • Fast Installation: While concrete and vinyl liner pools take weeks or even months to install, a fiberglass pool can be installed in a matter of just a few days. This means that instead of your backyard being a construction site this summer, your family can start enjoying your pool right away.
  • Lower Maintenance Costs: Fiberglass pools will save you money in the long run over the costs of vinyl liner and concrete pools. Vinyl liner pools have an expensive liner which has to be replaced approximately every seven to ten years. This involves draining your pool and paying for liner replacement (which averages about $2000). Concrete pools crack and peel and will require pressure washing, patching, painting and sealing which will again involve draining your pool and costly repairs. Because it is a porous substance, it will actually use more chemicals than your fiberglass pool. A fiberglass pool is made to withstand the abuses of water. After all, it is the material of choice for boats.
  • Durability: Fiberglass pools work in a wider variety of soil types and are made to withstand expanding soil conditions and changes in pressure as a result of changing temperatures. A concrete pool cannot sustain these same variations and as a result over time it will crack and leak. Your fiberglass pool is so durable, it is backed by a lifetime warranty.
  • Flexibility of Installation: Because fiberglass pools do not use concrete footings as in vinyl liner or walls as in concrete pools, your pool can be installed at any time of year. In addition, your pool could be removed and reinstalled in another location if your needs ever change.
  • Comfort: Fiberglass pools also have a smooth, non-abrasive texture to them which means no more scrapes or snagged bathing suits.
