About Fiberglass Pools




FIBERGLASS

There are many benefits to buying an in-ground fiberglass swimming pool. Your fiberglass swimming pool can be installed in as little as 7 days. A concrete pool may take as long as 3 months. Weather or not, weather conditions usually won't hold up installation. The swimming pool shell arrives on-site pre-formed, complete and weatherproof and ready to go. Our fully moulded one piece 100% fiberglass swimming pool shell flex without cracking to accommodate earth movement unlike concrete and other pre-formed pools that contain mineral fillers which have reduced flexibility. Fiberglass swimming pools come in a fantastic range of new colors, shapes, sizes and designs.

An impervious pigmented surface finished called "gelcoat" is applied during manufacturing. So you needn't spend time and money tiling, etc. Under normal conditions, the "gelcoat" finish never needs painting. It's smooth inert surface cleans easily, resists stains and requires less chemical saving you money and giving you more time to enjoy!

Unlike other materials, our fiberglass swimming pools are non-abrasive. There are no sharp, dangerous edges, abrasive surfaces so there will be no skin off fingers and toes. We incorporate anti-skid surfaces on all stairs and the pool floor to help keep your family safe. Salt water pools are becoming increasingly popular for their healthy, natural feel. Salt water is totally compatible with fiberglass.
