Benefits of a Fibreglass Pool

Home » News » Benefits of a Fibreglass Pool

When considering the installation of a permanent swimming pool, the two main options tend to be concrete or fibreglass.

If you ask swimming pool builders across the country which they think is the better option of the two, some will lean towards concrete, but the overwhelming majority these days will recommend going down the fibreglass route.

There are several reasons for this, the most important of which you’ll find out when you visit Darwin Fibreglass Pools & Spas.

In the meantime, here are some benefits of a fibreglass pool.

Low Maintenance

It is a fact that fibreglass pools are much easier to maintain on a long term basis.

On average, the owner of a fibreglass pool will spend less than 45 minutes per week maintaining their pool.

This is a considerably shorter time than it would take to clean a concrete pool that is more prone to bacteria growing in it.

Feet Comfort

The surface of a fibreglass pool is much smoother than a concrete pool, which results in a much more comfortable experience for your wet and vulnerable feet.

Concrete pools can cause bloody toes if you spend to long bobbing around, but a fibreglass pool has a smooth finish that will be much kinder to your feet.

Salt Chlorine Generators

Salt chlorinators are very much the in thing when it comes to pool maintenance these days.

The only drawback being that it can be a difficult treatment for swimming pool builders to apply to concrete and metal surfaces.

These are not a problem for fibreglass builds, however, which makes them a much more attractive alternative.

Easy To Install

If you are thinking about a vinyl liner pool, there is an issue of specific ambient temperature at play.

With concrete, rain and extreme temperatures can also be an issue.

With fibreglass, however, these issues are hardly ever a factor.

Fibreglass is strong enough to stand up to pretty much any test that Mother Nature throws at it, so it really is the best option for your own pool, no matter where you live.

So there you have it, four reasons why fibreglass pools are definitely the way to go.
