When choosing a swimming pool for your home, there are many factors that need to be considered, such as the cost, construction time to complete, and the materials used, for instance. However, the cost of a traditional in-ground concrete pool has become so high they have become out of reach for many homeowners. Fortunately, many pool companies are now offering fiber glass pools as a more affordable alternative that are as good as or better than a custom concrete pool.
So, if you are trying to decide between a fiber glass and a traditional concrete pool, you may first want to consider the many advantages of purchasing a fiber glass pool.
Less maintenance and a smooth, non-porous surface
You may be surprised to learn that fiberglass is becoming the preferred choice over in-ground concrete pools due to the non-abrasive finish that fiberglass is known for. This means that there are no more cuts or scrapes while standing, walking or brushing against the pool surface. And since a fiber glass pool is non-porous, it is more resistant to stains, bacteria and algae requiring less maintenance and chemicals than a traditional concrete pool.
More durable with no repainting or resurfacing required
Unlike concrete pools, fiberglass never needs repainting or re-surfacing or even liner replacements as would be the case with vinyl liner pools. Fiberglass pools also now have increased durability and have been found to be several times stronger than concrete pools. In addition, they are able to withstand expanding pressure and soil conditions due to changing temperatures. This high tensile strength allows the pool shell to shift and flex without cracking.
Faster installation process and more affordable
One of the advantages of a fiber glass pool is that the shell is pre-constructed in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles and delivered directly to the site for an in-ground installation. This allows the homeowner to start enjoying their pool investment in just a few days. A traditional concrete pool requires a blueprint and concrete needs to be poured on site. This not only adds several thousand dollars to the cost of the pool itself, but can also take a few weeks to complete, weather permitting.
