Discover the best pool material on the market.
There are three common types of pools: concrete (or gunite), vinyl-liner, and fiberglass. At Care Free Pools, we offer fiberglass and vinyl liner pools, but prefer to focus on fiberglass since it is the superior material. Here are some of the advantages that a fiberglass pool offers:
Fiberglass pools can often be installed in under a week’s time. In contrast, concrete pools can take anywhere from three to six months for installation. This means that by choosing a fiberglass pool, you don’t have to wait until next summer to enjoy your new pool.
Fiberglass pools are the most compatible material for a pool using a salt system, which offers many advantages on its own. Salt systems are completely incompatible with concrete pools and will cause vinyl-liner pools to leak over time.
Since fiberglass is the most low-maintenance pool material on the market, if you ever decide to move, this will be a significant selling point for potential buyers. With no need to replace a liner or fix damage caused by shifting ground, the fiberglass pool you install will provide years of worry-free entertainment to any family who lives in the home.
Fiberglass pools come in a wide variety of shapes – from traditional to modern – and water-enhancing color finishes. Combine these options with the possibility of a spa, swim-up bar, tanning ledge or a custom living space and you’ll be able to create the backyard of your dreams.
Fiberglass pools do not need resurfacing (like concrete) or liner replacement (like vinyl-liner). In addition, they also require less chemicals since the smooth, non-porous gelcoat surface does not trap algae and requires minimal cleaning. You save not only time, but also money with a fiberglass pool. Fiberglass is also stronger than a concrete or vinyl-liner pool, meaning it can withstand unsteady ground conditions or extreme changes in temperature better than the other kinds of pools.
