Fiberglass swimming pools are a great option for homeowners who want to spend more time enjoying their pool and less time cleaning it. The smooth surface of fiberglass pools practically maintain themselves, and the pool can be installed in days! This is the most costly inground pool option, but you will see the lowest lifetime cost – which means more money for parties, grilling, and having fun by the pool!
After you have chosen a design, your swimming pool shell will be created in our factory. Fiberglass is a strong, lightweight material that is constructed by weaving small glass threads into fabric and hardening the fabric with a special polyester resin. To create a smooth finish, a weather-resistant gel is added to the fiberglass mold. Once your pool is completed, it will be transported to your backyard and installed in the excavated hole. The entire installation of an in-ground fiberglass swimming pool typically takes 1-2 weeks.
Why Fiberglass Swimming Pool
One reason is the fiberglass pools require minimal maintenance — especially compared to concrete pools or vinyl pools. Because of the smooth finish created by the weather-resistant gel, fiberglass pools offer stable pH levels and minimal algae growth. This saves you not only money on chemicals and tools in the long term, but time that can be spent enjoying your pool instead of cleaning it. Of course, maintaining a swimming pool and its water is always a must.
Maintaining your fiberglass pool can be very simple. For pool wall dirt and grime, use a damp sponge or rag and a simple pool cleaner to remove any marks or waterlines without damaging your pool. If the spot remains, call a pool professional. Do NOT use any harsh cleaners or tools as these may damage the gel coating on your pool. If for any reason you need to drain your pool, leave it to the professionals. Although your fiberglass pool may have a sturdy structure, there are many external factors that go into draining a pool. With an investment like this, DIY is not the way to go.
