Once upon a time, fiberglass technology was in its infancy. Fiberglass pools often looked plain or cheap, simply because technology hadn't advanced very far yet. However, with time, science, and a passion for splashin', modern fiberglass pool manufacturers have blown those outdated appearances out of the water. Today’s fiberglass pools are elegant and stylish, fitting beautifully into any backyard landscape.
Fiberglass pools come in many different sizes and shapes. Back in the 1970s and '80s, you were limited in the selection of sizes and shapes of fiberglass pools. Fiberglass pools came in two colors, white and powder blue. But today there are a wide variety of fiberglass pools to choose from, including a wide variety of colors to pick from. This is due to more people getting into the manufacturing of fiberglass pools and the advancements that have been made in the gel coat industry.

In February 2018, River Pools had the opportunity to build a fiberglass pool for former Vice President Joe Biden. This was in Delaware, though—outside the River Pools installation area. A problem? Not at all. Enter one of our nationwide dealers, Clean Cut Pavers and Pools. River Pools manufactured the G36 fiberglass pool shell and transported it to the dealer, who installed it in the Bidens' backyard. Some of the River Pools family went out that week to watch the installation and to highlight this dealer, their employees, and their good work. (Others of us—that is, me, myself, and I—were left at the office. I was kind of sad.)
