Fiberglass Pools: Frequently Asked Questions
As a leading expert in fiberglass pool installation, we at Groupe Powerstone often get asked numerous questions about fiberglass pools. In this blog post, we’ll address some of the most frequently asked questions and provide expert answers to help you make informed decisions.
What is a fiberglass pool and how is it different from other types of pools?
A fiberglass pool is a pre-manufactured pool made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic. Unlike concrete and vinyl liner pools, fiberglass pools come in a pre-formed shell and are installed as a single piece. This means that fiberglass pools offer a smoother surface that is less likely to harbor algae and bacteria, as well as a faster installation time. It also is the only pool to offer a lifetime guarantee.
Are fiberglass pools more expensive than other types of pools?
Fiberglass pools are generally more expensive than vinyl liner pools, but less expensive than concrete pools. However, fiberglass pools offer lower long-term maintenance costs and energy savings, making them a more cost-effective option in the long run. You also won't need to change the liner or repaint the inside so there is a ton of cost saved over the long run.
How long does it take to install a fiberglass pool?
The installation time for a fiberglass pool varies depending on the size and complexity of the project, but it typically takes around two to three days from excavation to filling the pool with water.
What are the maintenance requirements for a fiberglass pool?
Fiberglass pools require less maintenance than concrete and vinyl liner pools. The smooth surface of the pool reduces the chances of algae growth, and the use of fewer chemicals means lower maintenance costs. Additionally, fiberglass pools do not require resurfacing or liner replacement, which can save homeowners significant money in the long run.
Can a fiberglass pool be customized?
Yes, fiberglass pools can be customized with a variety of features, such as waterfalls, built-in seating, and lighting. At Groupe Powerstone, we work closely with our clients to create a customized pool design that meets their specific needs and preferences.
In summary, fiberglass pools offer numerous advantages over other types of pools, including a smoother surface, faster installation time, lower maintenance costs, and greater customization options.
