If you are thinking of installing an in-ground swimming pool on your property once warmer weather returns, one of the first considerations to discuss with your family will be what type of material you want to use to actually build the pool. Concrete and vinyl have long been popular materials for swimming pools but today, more and more homeowners are taking a long look at the benefits that a fiberglass swimming pool can provide. Here's why you might want to opt for fiberglass when it comes time to build your new in-ground swimming pool.
Fiberglass Is Faster to Install and Doesn't Require Perfect Weather Conditions
If you are getting concrete poured for a new swimming pool, you need to make sure the weather conditions that day will be perfect. You should also block out your entire day or even your whole weekend to make sure you have the time to monitor the installation and make sure that everything settles properly when it's all said and done. But fiberglass does not require perfect weather conditions and it will arrive at your property already ready to be installed. You will be able to get a fiberglass pool installation completed in a much shorter amount of time than other types of materials and you won't have to keep checking the weather report or glancing up at the sky while you do it.
Better Durability Because Fiberglass Won't Puncture Like Vinyl Can
All swimming pools will require some maintenance or care in the long run to stay clean and in good condition. But with fiberglass, you won't have to worry about some of the issues that can come from having a vinyl pool. Vinyl pools can puncture on the sides if something sharp comes into contact with your liner. Fiberglass pools do not have liners and a puncture of this nature is not something you will ever have to worry about.
No Need to Deal With New Liners or Resurfacing, Which Means Less Maintenance and More Swimming
Beyond worrying about a liner getting punctured, you'll also have to keep it clean and eventually replace it over time. Having to install a new liner in your pool is a process that can eat up a whole day that you would otherwise spend swimming, not to mention that it's just a hassle that most people would prefer not to deal with. If you have a concrete-based swimming pool, you may not the same issues as vinyl, but you will need to get the concrete resurfaced eventually. Fiberglass, again, does not have this issue. This means you'll simply do less maintenance over time with a fiberglass pool than you would with concrete or vinyl.
