Fiberglass pools have been crafted since the 1950’s. Like a fiberglass boat on which they are based, these can last a lifetime if properly cared for. In fact, the first one ever constructed still exists to this day. Its long life is one of the many benefits of owning such a pool.
Compared to other types of swimming pools, it is made entirely at the factory. It is delivered at your home ready to be placed in the ground. Unlike concrete pools that take weeks to install, a fiberglass swimming pool is built elsewhere and can be installed in a few days. All contractors have to do is dig a hole and use a crane to put the pool in place. Fiberglass pools can be installed even in cold weather.
Fiberglass swimming pools need fewer chemicals than plaster models, which typically change the pH level of the water. Fiberglass wont affect the water which means less chemicals and pump used are needed for saving you money.
The maintenance and upkeep on a fiberglass model pool is typically much more convenient than alternative models. Fiberglass swimming pools are easy to clean, because unlike their concrete counterparts, they do not absorb algae into pores. Algae cant penetrate fiberglass pools due to their coatings. This coating also allows stains caused by lotions and body oils to be easily wiped away with a gentle cleanser.
Extending the life of your fiberglass pool is much easier. A vinyl-lined or a concrete pool may need occasional patching, liner replacement or concrete resurfacing all of which can be time-consuming and costly. You can avoid such expenses with a fiberglass pool that is durable and almost maintenance-free.
