What are the benefits of fiberglass inground pools?
Between fiberglass, vinyl-lined, aluminum, and concrete in-ground pool types – you have a lot of options to choose from. But what’s best for you? How do you know what kind of pool you should install?
Although each pool type has pros and cons, our team has put together the main benefits of owning an in-ground fiberglass pool. If you’re interested in what sets a fiberglass pool apart from the rest, read on:
Easy Daily Maintenance
There’s a perception that swimming pools are difficult to maintain – but it’s important to note some pools are much easier to maintain than others. When compared to swimming pools on the market, fiberglass swimming pools require low maintenance and are easy to upkeep.Since the bottom of a fiberglass pool is smooth and non-porous, it is hard for algae to grow on its surfaces, which is a major concern as a pool owner. If you go with a fiberglass pool, say hello to an awesome poolside summer paired with minimal cleaning on your end.
Minimal Annual Maintenance
Since fiberglass in-ground pools are ready-to-install pieces made by the manufacturer, it is not only easy to maintain on a daily & weekly basis, but annually, too. In-ground pools with a vinyl liner must be replaced every 5-10 years, and concrete pools require an annual acid washing and resurfacing every ~15 years. Instead of dealing with these expensive, time-consuming projects (which put your pool out of commission), you can own a fiberglass pool and deal with none of these maintenance requirements.
Fiberglass pools come in ready-to-install, pre-cast pieces from the manufacturer. Because of this, they are installed as a single piece on the property and do not require custom installation – saving you time and money. There are no installation limitations when it comes to temperature either. With vinyl liner pools, you must be careful to install it at the right ambient temperature, and this can affect concrete pool installations as well.
Even with an easy, fast install time, fiberglass pools have great appearance in the looks department. With the ability to create custom pool designs and unique architectural copings, you will be able to build a pool perfect for your property right out-of-the-box.
With many pool types on the market, it can be daunting when beginning your research on the “pool that’s best for you.” We hope you can take these fiberglass benefits and apply it to your own swimming pool research.
