A Fiberglass Swimming Pool?

Advantages of a Fiberglass Pool…

1. Warmer water

  • Fiberglass is a natural insulator that is widely used in our homes.
  • More than 5 degrees difference from a typical swimming pool.

2. Quick installation

  • Pool installation in one day.
  • Far fewer steps than traditional concrete and liner pools.
  • Weather conditions have less impact on progress.

3. Less maintenance and more environmentally friendly

  • No liner to replace periodically.
  • No painting or resurfacing of concrete plaster.

4. Durability

  • 100% waterproofing guaranteed by multiple layers of fiber and Gelcoat.
  • More resistant than canvas to tears and impacts.
  • No adjustment problems at corners and steps.

5. Why is fiberglass so easy to maintain?

  • The surface of a fiberglass pool (Gelcoat) is non-porous.
  • The smooth surface makes it difficult for algae to accumulate on it.

6. Compatibility with salt systems

  • Salt systems have proven their ease of use.
  • Our pools have no metal components, unlike liner pools, which can quickly allow water to damage the metal structure.
  • Salt systems have no effect on the surfaces of our pools, so you can use this system without worry.

7. Valeur de revente

  • Un acheteur de maison va considérer la piscine comme une valeur ajoutée si celle-ci requiert peu d’entretien, a belle apparence et durera longtemps.
  • Les toiles doivent être remplacées périodiquement entre 7 à 9 ans et souvent l’acheteur demande au vendeur de la remplacer avant d’acheter.
  • Une piscine avec toile peut par contre réduire la valeur de la propriété.
  • Bien sûr la valeur totale de l’investissement initial n’est pas récupérée mais la piscine en fibre de verre la maximise.

7. Resale value

  • A homebuyer will consider a pool as an added value if it requires little maintenance, looks good and will last a long time.
  • Liners need to be replaced periodically, between 7 and 9 years, and often the buyer will ask the seller to replace it before buying.
  • On the other hand, a pool with a liner can reduce the value of the property.
  • Of course, the total value of the initial investment is not recovered, but the fiberglass pool maximizes it.

8. Long-term maintenance costs

  • No liner to replace periodically.
  • No need to repair damaged steel panels with salt systems.

9. Energy efficiency

  • Reduced heating costs due to fiberglass insulation on pool sides and floor.

10. Quality control

  • The pool is factory-manufactured to rigorous quality standards.
  • The quantity of fiber and resin used is checked at every stage of manufacture.
  • Manufactured in an ideal, controlled environment.
