Imperial Pools, Inc. answer the question, should you get a fiberglass pool? Fiberglass is an ideal building material for many swimming pools, but before you make any decision, ask us about the benefits and drawbacks of fiberglass, gunite and vinyl liner swimming pools so you can rest assured you’re getting the best pool for your money.

Look at your budget, the amount of yard space you have for your pool, the time and effort you want to put into swimming pool cleaning, maintenance and upkeep and make your decision based on having gathered all of the relevant facts. Every pool material has both advantages and disadvantages, but those are as unique as are the people who choose a particular material.

Should you get a fiberglass pool?

What are fiberglass pool advantages?

  • Quick to install
  • Easier to maintain than other materials
  • They can withstand temperature fluctuations
  • pH levels remain more stable in fiberglass
  • Algae bloom is rarely an issue because algae cannot get a foothold on fiberglass
  • Fiberglass pools traditionally require fewer chemicals than other pool models
  • They are a mid-range price with gunite being the priciest and vinyl liner at the lowest end

When you decide to get a fiberglass pool, it will be delivered to your home in one piece and set into the excavated area. A drawback to fiberglass is you may not have as many options in size and style as you would if you opted for a vinyl liner or a concrete pool.

Ask your friends and family what type of material their pools are constructed of, whether they like it, whether they are happy with their choice and whether they’d use that material if they had it to do all over again.
