When making decisions on your swimming pool project you will need to choose between a fiberglass, concrete or vinyl liner swimming pool. Each construction material has unique advantages and disadvantages and you need to weigh all of them so you make an informed decision. There are many reasons to choose a fiberglass pool and your pool contractor from Tipton Pools in Knoxville, Tennessee can explain all of them to you!
Reasons to choose a fiberglass pool
Here are a few things to think about when deciding on a fiberglass pool.
- They are the easiest to keep clean
- They require fewer chemicals
- They aren’t prone to algae
- They are a mid-price option. Concrete is the highest price, vinyl liner is the lowest
- They are a quicker option to have constructed than others
- It won’t rip (like a vinyl liner might)
- You won’t need to acid wash the surface (like you would with concrete)
If you live in an area prone to earthquakes, a fiberglass swimming pool is better able to withstand the shocks and damage an earthquake could cause — especially to a concrete pool.
A major plus for a fiberglass pool is they only take about two weeks to construct. Once the hole has been excavated and is prepared, your fiberglass pool can be delivered and installed in one piece – like a bathtub. You do need to make certain — and your pool contractor is your best resource — that the equipment to install the pool can get onto your property.
