If you are looking to install an in-ground swimming pool, you have several options. You can install a vinyl liner, build one out of concrete, or install a fiberglass pool. Each one has its pros and cons. If you are thinking of installing a pool, here are some benefits of fiberglass pools:
Low ownership costs over time
Fiberglass pools don’t need a lot of maintenance. In many cases, a vinyl liner pool needs the liner replaced about every seven to ten years. Concrete pools usually need an acid wash every few years. In addition, they will need to be resurfaced approximately every fifteen years.
Fiberglass pools don’t need this type of maintenance. In addition, most damage to the fiberglass surface can be fixed easily.
Fiberglass pools are the easiest type of pool to install because installation isn’t affected by the weather. Vinyl pools need to be installed at a certain temperature to avoid wrinkles in the liner. Rain and really hot or cold temperatures can also affect the installation of a concrete pool.
Unlike concrete, which has a more textured surface, a fiberglass pool is much smoother. This makes it more comfortable on your feet.
Resist algae growth
One concern about a pool is avoiding algae growth. Fiberglass is the most algae-resistant material. Fiberglass is a less porous surface than vinyl and is more resistant to algae growth. Concrete surfaces have little crevices, which provide places for algae to grow. As a result, fiberglass pools require less work to avoid algae growth than concrete and vinyl pools.
