What Do I Need to Know About Fiberglass Pools?

Fiberglass pools are becoming more and more popular today as a good choice for residential backyard pools. If you’re reading this, you may have considered installing and/or upgrading your existing pool to a fiberglass one. A fiberglass pool is a one-piece swimming pool that is pre-built from a mold and shipped to the location where it’s being installed. It is comprised of many layers that make it supportive and strong for many years of family fun in the pool.

Costs Associated with Fiberglass Pools

The costs associated with installing a fiberglass pool can be anywhere from $15,000 to $40,000. Two factors influence the cost of this pool: installation costs and the pool shell itself. The size of the shell and any included features such as stairs, seating and ledges influence the price too. Installation requires a lot of steps, which is a significant part of the cost too.

How Long Do These Pools Last?

These pools can last for a long time, but they may need a gel coating replacement every 15 years. This is relatively affordable as compared to maintenance costs associated with vinyl and concrete pools. Thanks to the waterproof gel coating on its surface, it makes it near impossible for chemicals or water to get absorbed, which is a problem for other pools. Thanks to this shield against debris and algae, it’s hard for contaminants to latch onto walls and spread, which makes them easy to clean.

Installing a Fiberglass Pool

Fiberglass pools have the shortest installation time. This is because the construction of the pool itself is what takes the longest time. Choosing this type of pool means you will have more time in the pool and you’ll enjoy it much sooner with than other pool types.
