One of the main reasons why the fiberglass pool is popular is its easy cleaning and minimal maintenance feature. It has a gel coat finish, which gives a smooth and shiny surface and making it hard for algae to adhere as it diminishes nasty algae bloom and helps to control this perennial nuisance. And with a fiberglass pool, it is easier to balance the water because it does not have minerals that can affect the water.
Another good thing with the gel-coat is that it is skin-friendly. You will glide smoothly over this velvety surface if you rub against it while swimming. However, you should apply a non-skid application to areas where you need to grip, such as stairs and walkways.
Gel coat can also withstand harsh weather conditions and the test of time.
You can install a fiberglass pool whether you are starting new construction or fitting a pool into an existing space; you can install it almost anywhere. It can also be delivered in sections and built on-site if you want something bigger but do not have access to get the pool into the available space. And aside from flexible installation, a fiberglass pool is also quick to install.
You do not have to replaster with the fiberglass pool from time to time, unlike the gunite and cement pool. Fiberglass pools last a very long time that sometimes people take them if they move.
Another benefit that homeowners get from installing fiberglass is it is highly customizable. You are not tied up with pre-built layouts, colors, or tile combinations. So, you have the freedom of your design and the ability to customize your fiberglass pool to match it with your interior walls or coping with your home decor.
Fiberglass pool uses fewer chemicals and less heat compared to a traditional gunite pool. Most fiberglass pool is insulated, and sometimes it is made with a solid wood core, making it superior in temperature retention.
You do not have to fill your pool more often as the gel coats protect against moisture absorption, making this pool better for the environment and your wallet.
