10 advantages of a Fiberglass Pool

    • Less Maintenance: Today, this is an accepted fact and no longer up for debate. Fiberglass pools have reinvented the paradigm that ‘pools are a lot of work’. In fact, most fiberglass pool owners spend less than 30 minutes a week in total maintenance.

  •  Work Great w/ Salt: As anyone who understands science will tell you, Salt Chlorinated water, for all its wonders, is abrasive to concrete surfaces. What’s this mean to you? Well, it simply means you’re going to have to resurface your concrete pool much sooner. But as for a fiberglass pool, salt is not a deterrent on the surface.
  • Less Cost: Yes, fiberglass and gunite may cost the same initially, but long term, due to the chemical and maintenance/resurfacing differences, a fiberglass is much less. 
  • Quicker Install: Fiberglass pools are often completed, including decking, in 2-3 weeks time. This means less stress for homeowners, neighbors, pets, etc.
  • Much easier on the Feet: Believe it or not, this is a big deal. Kids can play in a fiberglass pool for hours without getting their feet torn apart by the rough surface. We have many clients who owned a pool in the past and bought fiberglass specifically for this reason.
  • More Appealing to Potential Home Buyer: Now that so many people understand the low maintenance and longevity benefits of a fiberglass pool, the real estate market has become very attracted to these types of pools because potential home buyers don’t see them as a lot of work in the future.
  • Much Harder for Algae to Grow: Algae is the bane of a pool owner’s existence, and fiberglass pools have become well known to combat ‘the green monster’ due to their non-porous surface.
  • Seating is included: These days, every fiberglass pool includes built-in steps and benches, a popular feature that always costs more with other types of pools.
  • The Green Advantage: With all the talk of the environment today, anything that uses less chemicals is a good thing. And when it comes to gunite vs. fiberglass, there’s no question which one uses less.
  • Sound Structure, Built to Last: No matter what your soil conditions are, fiberglass is the ideal suitor because it’s flexible enough to bend with ground movement and frost heaves, but strong enough to deal with the constant elements over the years.
