Ahh, the glorious days of summer. Whether you host a backyard BBQ, a family picnic, or a pool party, nothing says summer like splashing around in a beautiful swimming pool. Building a new swimming pool is an exciting process, but you’ll need to consider a whirlpool of decisions before finalizing the design. One of the most critical steps involves selecting your building materials. Gunite, vinyl, and fiberglass all rank among the most common materials used for constructing in-ground pools.
But if you crave a pool that is durable, low-maintenance, and boosts your curb appeal, then a fiberglass pool is the way to go. Fiberglass pools have become increasingly popular for property owners in recent years. And for good reason! They offer a host of benefits that make them a great choice for anyone looking for a long-term solution for their outdoor swimming needs.
The pool construction experts at Mufson Pools are here to educate you on the many advantages you will enjoy by installing a fiberglass swimming pool.
Try dipping your toes in the water! The floor and walls in fiberglass pools boast a nice smooth feel. This means you won’t scrape your elbow or scratch your feet on the rough cement walls and floor as you churn through the water. Although the fiberglass pool feels smooth, it will not cause an overly slippery feel seen in some vinyl pools.
Thus, fiberglass pools prove ideal for homeowners who love playing sports in the water, such as volleyball or basketball. They can punt or dunk the ball and make a tidal splash without slipping!
Durability & Algae Resistance
The best advantage to installing a fiberglass pool lies in its durability. The material can withstand wear and tear for 50+ years. Furthermore, homeowners will have a simpler time keeping the water looking clear and pristine. Unlike concrete, fiberglass is not porous and does not allow algae to accumulate on the surface. The gel-coated surface prevents dirt and grime from sticking to the pool, allowing for easier cleaning and a lower repair bill.
Fiberglass pools are also very resistant to extreme temperatures. You can sleep peacefully knowing the frost heaves or the scorching summer temperatures on the east coast will not destroy your pool.
Low Maintenance Costs
As opposed to concrete pools (which need acid washes every couple of years) and vinyl pools (where you’ll have to routinely treat or replace the liner), a fiberglass pool requires minimal maintenance. Due to its durability, the overall cost of your fiberglass pool will drop significantly over its lifetime.
The smooth surface makes them easier to clean and maintain, and they also require less chlorine than other types of pools. This means you can spend more time enjoying your pool, and less time worrying about the constant upkeep.
Quick & Easy Installation
Fiberglass pools come in many shapes and sizes that are pre-manufactured and delivered to your home and ready for installation. Unlike concrete or vinyl pools, fiberglass pools arrive at your home in one piece and then dropped into the prepared hole with a crane. This eliminates the need for complicated construction, thereby streamlining the process.
So, installing your fiberglass pool will take only a couple of days, rather than weeks or months to install a cement or vinyl pool. Complete with hardscaping and landscaping, your dream backyard will soon become a reality.
Compatible with Salt & Chlorine Pools
Trendy saltwater pools pair wonderfully with fiberglass. The salty chlorinators often cause considerable wear and tear on concrete and vinyl pools, but do not drastically affect the fiberglass gel coat. Whether you prefer salt chlorinators or a regular chlorinated pool, a fiberglass shell is a sturdy and reliable option.
