What are the Biggest and Smallest Sizes for Fiberglass Pools?



With the proliferation in growth of the fiberglass pool marketing over the last 10 years here in the United States, consumers are getting more and more options, sizes, and accessories to choose with their fiberglass swimming pool.

This being said, the size of fiberglass pools will always have some limitations due to the fact that they are built offsite in a factory and then shipped on highways. With most wide-load laws preventing anything to travel on the highway that is more than 16’ wide, this can make it very difficult to produce anything of a greater size.

Biggest Fiberglass Pools

These days, most fiberglass pool manufacturers max out with models in the 16’x40’ range. Here are some manufacturers and their corresponding largest sizes available:

  • Leisure Pools: Grande (16’x40’ Rectangle)
  • Viking Pools: Island Breeze II (16’x40’ Rectangle)
  • Trilogy Pools: Atlas (16’x40’ Rectangle)
  • San Juan Pools: Luxor (16’x44’ Rectangle)
  • Barrier Reef Pools: Whitsunday 1 (15’8’’x40’ Rectangle)
  • American Fiberglass Pools: Frio (18’x43’)

Smallest Fiberglass Pool Models

describe the imageWhen it comes to smaller pools, there is a good chance you can pretty much find whatever you’re looking for, as there are many to choose from with just about any manufacturer.

For example, most manufacturers produce shell sizes that are in the 10’x20’ range. So whether it’s a kidney, rectangle, roman, or free-form shape—there are plenty of small sizes in the industry.

When it comes to pool sizes though, keep in mind that size doesn’t always dictate play area. For example, diving pools may be big, but this doesn’t mean they make for great play pools, as there is only about 13’ of play area, and the rest is either hard slope or diving well area.

Also, features like steps, benches, and seats—although great for relaxing— limit the amount of play area within the pool.

Does anyone make a pool with a shallow flat area to put lounge chairs? And the rest of the pool a lap pool? I do like the look of the pool in your first photo, if that seating area was just a little wider, it would accomodate a chaise lounge.

Good question Sandra. To have lounge chairs *in* the pool the water has to be very, very shallow, like only a few inches. These days, there are some manufacturers that have a "tanning shelf" on their pools, although a custom tanning ledge can be built on any fiberglass pool if the builder knows what they're doing. As for a lap pool though, that's tough to find, as most lap pools are considered 8 to 12' wide but 40' long or longer. 
Good luck!!

We manufacture a 6 foot X 14 foot by ONE FOOT DEEP wet deck. You can view this on our web site. We also manufacture a 9 foot by 9 foot by ONE FOOT DEEP wet deck, both out of fiberglass and in four colors and white.These two products compliment any lap pool. Thursday Pools, located in Fortville Indiana is not a supplier of River Pools, but know for certain, River Pools is by far the best in the industry. Thanks to the River Pools this industry is blessed with the truth of what fiberglass is all

I like really deep pools. I have a bad back and my doctor tell me to swim it will be good for my back. I really cant swim at the pool in the gym because I feel its dirty. I need to make more money so I can get a pool like this.

We are researching pools & like the idea of fiberglass with one hitch: cane we get a fiberglass pool that has a beach entry vs stairs. Much easier for older and handicapped entry?

Looking for a very SMALL pool. Just something to lounge in --- like 8x10. I don't want a hot tub 
Posted @ Tuesday, July 02, 2013 7:54 AM by La
From what I read, 40' long pools are the limit for fiberlass pools? Any chance someone makes one in 60'? I've done some research in material strenght and know for sure that fiberglass is a very good option, plus all the benefits that come with it, this bein said, I would really give it double thought to buils a lap pool out of any other material. Do you know if any one makes such big pools in fiberglass?

I'm researching the possibility of putting small pool in my back yard, mainly for deep water aerobics but would want it to be child-safe and good for resale when/if I sell my home. Exploring the fiberglass pools. Any dealers in Mississippi?

We manufacture a 15 wide by 25 foot long PEARL model that has a very generous wet deck and 13 individual seats. We placed this on campus at the University of Kentucky as a "Spa on Steroids"!  
I can not say enough concerning the positive contribution River Pools has made within the fiberglass swimming pool industry. Go Marcus!

For a rooftop application is there a company that can also provide the complete structural frame to support the fiberglass on all sides? Also pre-plumbed? I am looking for a smaller rectangle with an Infinity Edge. Hopefully a complete assembly that can be lifted and set in place on the structural platform.

I would like to get a pool that is bigger than 40ft for doing laps. Does any one make a 50ft?
