10 Reasons Why Fiberglass Pools Are Better Than Concrete
Yes, that’s right, fiberglass pools are better than concrete pools, at least in most applications. Are there exceptions? Sure, no doubt, fiberglass pools are not for everyone due to some of their size and shape limitations, but the fact that they are exploding in popularity all over the world, especially in the US and Canada, one must no longer see fiberglass as a distant 3rd to concrete and vinyl in the swimming pool industry. But the main question is why? Why so much growth in popularity? Here’s the short answer:
10 reasons why fiberglass pools are quickly becoming more popular than concrete pools in the US
1. Less Maintenance
This is an accepted fact and no longer up for debate. Fiberglass pools (FP) have reinvented the paradigm that ‘pools are a lot of work’. In fact, most FP owners spend less than 30 minutes a week in total maintenance.
2. Work Great with Salt
As anyone who understands science will tell you, Salt Chlorinated water, for all its wonders, is abrasive to concrete surfaces. What’s this mean to you? Well, it simply means you’re going to have to resurface your concrete pool much sooner. But as for a FP, salt is not a deterrent on the surface.
3. Less Cost
4. Quicker Install
5. Much Easier on the Feet
6. More Appealing to Potential Home Buyer
7. Much Harder for Algae to Grow
8. Seating is Included
9. The Green Advantage
