Fiberglass Diving Pools: Reviews, Prices, Designs

Fiberglass Diving Pools: Reviews, Prices, Designs

Fiberglass Pool Information  |  Fiberglass Pool Manufacturers  |  Pool Design Guides

Myth: Fiberglass pools are too small to be diving pools.

Reality: As fiberglass pool manufacturers, we proudly partake in debunking this myth with the existence of our T Series pool.

 

 

The River Pools T40 is 1) a fiberglass pool, 2) a type III diving pool, and 3) a pool with a deep end that goes down 8.5 feet.

 

Note: For a swimming pool to qualify as a diving pool, it typically needs a minimum of 8 feet of water depth, and it must meet many other size and design requirements.

On top of that, our diving pool has plenty of space in the shallow area for playing, a feature not common when it comes to fiberglass diving pools.

So, what does all of this mean? Of course, we're partial to our deep end diving model, but there are many deep end fiberglass pools on the market today. And because our customers often ask us how the different fiberglass diving pools compare to one another, we decided to explore them here.

 

If you have had your heart set on a fiberglass diving pool, keep reading. In this article, we'll compare fiberglass deep end models across multiple manufacturers to help you assess your options and choose the right fiberglass pool for your home.

Let's dive in.

How much does a fiberglass diving pool cost?

Fiberglass diving pool prices vary across manufacturers, sizes, and depths, but generally, they are on the upper end of fiberglass pool prices at a minimum of $50,000 for very basic packages. More than likely, your fiberglass diving pool will cost $65,000 to $85,000 or more with full installation, accessories, and landscaping.

Diving and deep-end pools typically need to be larger in length, width, and most importantly, depth. As with all inground pools, the cost will increase with every additional square foot.
