Visual Proof that Fiberglass Pools are Stronger than Concrete


strong fiberglass pool

Although this photo might confuse you at first, it's showing a fiberglass display pool at our headquarters here in Warsaw Va. after some serious wind gusts that have been plaguing the state over the last couple of days. What normally is a pool shell on its side with the trailer as its base, mother nature decided to blow it over with some serious force behind it, causing the shell to slam to the  ground.

Even better though, the shell was unharmed. It's flexibility and tensile strength, as always, saved the day.

It's this same flexibility that allows fiberglass pools to do so well in shrink-swell soil and other types of ground that often vibrate, shift, or move.

So is a fiberglass pool truly stronger than concrete? No doubt, each one has their own set of pros and cons, which you can read thoroughly in this article, but on this day, fiberglass is the winner. ;-)

Jason- Well demonstrated. 2 years ago we had an equipment failure while moving a Elegance style fiberglass pool. We literally DROPPED the pool 15'. It landed on the deep end first then the shallow. Incredibly the only damage was minor gel coat hairline cracking at the stairway/bench corner. Needless to say we were glad it was fiberglass too and the repair was super easy.

Jason: Very well stated. I know for a fact that other fiberglass pools here in the New England didn't survive the storms we had. So glad the Leisure makes the pool they do. Have a super season!

I think part of the reason fiberglass might be sturdier in conditions where the pool is accidentally dropped is due to the fact that fiberglass is much lighter than say, concrete. Fiberglass is great for mobility though!

Whoa! That is impressive. Must have been some REAL strong winds! What makes the fiberglass so strong?

Has anyone had experience with or know if it is possible to construct a inground concrete shell and then apply fiberglass and gel coats onsite?

Just watched your video on pool options and you advised against auto pool covers w/ SWG. One auto pool cover I spoke w/ said that the problem SWG corroding the metals used in the covers is to install sacrificial avoids. Can Jason or Marcus or readers comment on this?
