What is a Fiberglass Pool?
Fiberglass pools are in-mold, handcrafted pools that arrive at your home ready to be installed in your yard. The fiberglass is created from millions of interwoven glass threads covered with a polyester resin. It’s an incredibly sturdy material that’s ideal for an in-ground pool. In comparison, a concrete pool requires a steel or wooden framework that needs to be covered by a mixture of cement, sand, and water. Fiberglass is the material of choice for bathtubs, sinks, hot tubs, and multi-million dollar yachts, not to mention, airplanes, helicopters, exotic automobiles and many other high-performance products. As such, fiberglass is the best choice for the material for your inground swimming pool.
Fiberglass Pool Advantages
Fiberglass pools have many advantages over alternatives. Unlike other pools, fiberglass pool installation can be accomplished quickly. Homeowners that purchase an Aquamarine Pools fiberglass pool will be enjoying their brand-new pool within days after delivery, regardless of the size or shape of the pool itself. Not to mention the unbeatable selection of pool styles available when selecting your new fiberglass swimming pool.
Concrete pools crack and have a much rougher surface. In contrast, a fiberglass pool’s slick feel offers a more enjoyable swimming experience (no scratches on sensitive hands and feet) and helps minimize algae growth.
The smooth finish of a fiberglass pool provides a more comfortable, scratch-free swimming experience and will give you peace of mind that your kids can swim without the worry of scraping their bodies on a rough surface, which can happen with concrete pools. The fiberglass is also much easier to clean – think of the effort needed to scrub tile grout versus the smooth veneer of a bathtub.
A fiberglass pool even has the upper hand when it comes to hygiene – you’ll need 30% less chlorine to keep your pool clean for swimming.
An inground fiberglass pool is much easier to maintain and will last forever. You won’t have to factor in future upkeep expenses – like concrete resurfacing – when estimating the total cost of your pool. Thanks to the top-quality craftsmanship and high-grade materials, you can rest assured that you’ll enjoy your backyard’s elevated appeal without the tedious and expensive maintenance that often accompanies other pools.
