Fibreglass pools

Fibreglass pools are growing in popularity. Consumers are realising the benefits of their low cost and quick installation times. If you want to have a dip in your own backyard ASAP, a fibreglass pool may be the right choice for you.

Fibreglass Pool Benefits

Manufacturers make fibreglass pool shells from pre-designed moulds. The materials they use can withstand weather, salt, chemicals, and swimmers. Combine the convenience and cost of fibreglass with this level of durability. You can see why fibreglass pools are getting more and more popular.

Fibreglass pools can be in-ground or above ground. Above ground fibreglass pools are a great option for small yards. They also suit those who want to avoid excavation and construction. Colour, size, shape and built-in feature options allow you to customise your pool. Fibreglass pools come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The most popular options are rectangle, oval and kidney-shaped. The use of prefabricated moulds does limit the amount of customisation you can do. That's a small price to pay for the affordability and speed that a fibreglass pool offers. There are also many providers offering fibreglass pools in unique styles and shapes.

Fibreglass Pool Maintenance

Fibreglass pools offer convenient maintenance. Their smooth finish makes for less cleaning and more time to enjoy your pool. Maintaining your pool is a simple matter of administering the appropriate chemicals. Keep the pool free of debris and apply some occasional elbow grease, and you're sorted. Add a modern automatic pool cleaning system to the mix and you won't even have to think about maintenance!

Over time, the interior of a fibreglass pool may fade. Don't worry, restoration is as simple as the installation. Consult the provider that installed your fibreglass pool. They will be more than happy to help with restoration. They can even tell you, at the time of installation, how long your fibreglass pool will last before needing restoration. Your pool's lifespan will depend on your specific conditions. That said, most fibreglass pools need restoration after 10-15 years.

Fibreglass Pool Price and Installation

Fibreglass pool prices will vary depending on size and features. An entry-level pool will often cost you in the range of $25,000-$35,000. That is including shell, delivery, equipment, labour, and council approval. At the higher end of the price range, an in-ground fibreglass pool can cost thirty to forty thousand dollars.

Even so, they tend to be cheaper than concrete and vinyl-lined pools. A concrete pool can have a cost of over one hundred thousand dollars. If you're considering a new pool for your home, be sure to consider fibreglass as a great option. 

Installing a fibreglass pool is simple and straightforward. Because providers use prefabricated pools, it only requires delivery and installation. The whole process takes between three and five weeks. That's a quick turnaround time for something that will provide you with years of value. 

It is important to use a reputable installer to ensure your fibreglass pool is safe. Consult a member of the Swimming Pool and Spa Association of Australia and New Zealand. Check them out via our ‘Find a provider’ tab.
