Fiberglass Pool Installation Thoughts 

Everyone loves a good deal, but let's not be "penny wise and pound foolish" or naive.  Each type of pool has their own set of pros and cons.  No pool type is perfect across the board.  When dealing with fiberglass pool manufacturers there are a few areas you'll want to keep in mind:

  • The reputation of the swimming pool dealer
  • Who is working for them i.e...employees and any sub-contractors
  • The materials used in making the pool and the type of coating
  • Manufacture process of the molds
  • Quality control measures
  • The installation process
  • What warranty and/or guarantee do the fiberglass pool manufactures make?
  • Experience at swimming pool restoration and swimming pool refinishing?
  • Experience at contemporary and/or classic pool and spa upgrades?

Benefits Of Fiberglass Inground Pools

When you're considering the purchase of an inground swimming pool, there are many factors to consider.  Will you go with fiberglass, concrete, or vinyl liner?  So let's discuss some benefits of owning an inground fiberglass swimming pool.

Fast and Easy Installation

The weather needs to be right when installing a vinyl liner due to the fact the ambient temperature has to be a certain temperature for the liner to properly fit and not wrinkle when installed.  And plaster pools cannot be too hot as it may cause the plaster to crack.  A fiberglass pool is created in a controlled environment and can be installed the same day. 

Low Maintenance

Fiberglass pools are easy to maintain and the dreaded black algae is rare.  They're also easier on chemicals so you'll actually use less of them to maintain the proper chemistry. 

No Liner or Chlorine/Acid Wash

Most inground pools with vinyl liners and above ground pools normally need a new liner every 7 - 10 years.  This can be more often if you live in a hotter climate.  Plaster and concrete pools will sometimes need to be either chlorine or acid washed, depending upon the situation.  At about the 15 - 20 year mark they might need to be either re-plastered or painted.

Manufacturers are always making improvements.  A fiberglass pool kit is made in a factory controlled environment which improves the efficiency of the pool and reduces your costs. 

Prices & Cost Of Fiberglass Pools 

The price is what you pay for the installation and all the goodies.  The cost is how much you're paying per month and year to maintain and keep your new fiberglass pool.  They're known for their easy up-keep and maintenance is a breeze.  They also use less chemicals than plaster and vinyl pools.  The initial price of a plaster or vinyl pool are pretty comparable at about $1 per 1 gallon of pool water.  This means a 25,000 gallon pool will be approximately $25,000.  Fiberglass inground pool have a slightly higher initial price and you can expect to pay about $1.25 per gallon of pool water.  This equates to about $31,250 for the entire installation of a 25,000 pool.    

It really depends on what you want and what "add-ons" are right for your pool, backyard, and budget. Here's a list of things that future pool owners might consider when considering swimming pools dealers:

  • Waterline tile
  • Colored finish
  • Pool lights
  • Concrete deck
  • Decorative rocks
  • Pool slides
  • Salt water swimming pool
  • Pool safety cover
  • Diving board
  • Ladders
  • Automatic vacuums
  • Adjacent hot tub

Are you fed up with your cloudy pool?  Has it been weeks since you've seen the bottom?

If you're the "do-it-yourselfer" you can probably get away with installation around $10,000 - $15,000. If you plan on having your contractor do everything and want everything above, you could be looking in the ball-park of $45,000 - $60,000 for a full experience.  Fiberglass inground pools are usually more expensive, upfront, than regular concrete pools but can save you money in the long run. 

As was said, they tend to use less chemicals, don't need to be re-plastered every 8 - 10 years or so, no swimming pool paint to buy, and there's no need to buy any vinyl liners.  Clearly there are many reasons to consider fiberglass inground pools.  Just remember to get one that fits your budget and ask the right questions.
