Each building material has its own benefits and drawbacks. Fiberglass pools offer a number of advantages and are becoming more popular with homeowners. The benefits of fiberglass pools include:

6 Advantages of Fiberglass Pools


Shorter Construction Time

Fiberglass pools require much less time to install than concrete pools. While building a concrete pool can take several weeks, a fiberglass pool can be installed in as little as three to five days.

Smooth Finish

The surface of this type of pool is non-abrasive. You won’t need to worry about rough surfaces or sharp edges that can scrape your skin. The smooth, non-porous surface also limits the growth of algae, making your pool easier to keep clean.


Concrete pools require an acid wash every few years, and many will also need resurfacing at some point. Vinyl inground pools will need to have their liners replaced after about seven years of use. In contrast, fiberglass pools are much easier and less expensive to maintain.

Fewer Chemicals

Many swimming pools require a complex mixture of chemicals that must be continuously monitored. This is not a problem with these pools. The surface of a fiberglass pool is chemically inert, meaning that it will not alter the water’s chemistry. You’ll need fewer chemicals to maintain your pool, leading to significant cost savings.

System Compatibility

Fiberglass pools are compatible with a variety of pool sanitation systems, including mineral systems, chlorine, and salt chlorinators. Whatever system you prefer, a fiberglass pool will be compatible.
