Aquaman Leak Detection - 3 Reasons to Own a Fiberglass Pool

Are you in the market for a new pool? Are you weighing the pros and cons of the different types and styles? Have you considered owning a fiberglass pool? Fiberglass pools are a top competitor in the pool owner game, check out why!

Reasons to Own a Fiberglass Pool

Fiberglass pools are manufactured in a controlled climate factory and transported to your home in one piece. They range in size and shape up to 16 x 40 feet, with a maximum depth of eight feet. Fiberglass pools can vary in their materials; however, most contain 3 - 4 composite layers. There are many pros to owning a fiberglass pool; we will focus on the top three: quick installation, low maintenance, and lifetime costs.

Quick Installation

Since fiberglass pool shells are manufactured and directly delivered to you, installation only takes about two days. Additionally, installation is not generally delayed due to inclement weather. Not only is installation quick, but total construction only takes about two weeks. From the time you decide on the pool you want, it can be in your yard in less than three weeks. That's quick!

Low Maintenance

If you are looking for an easy to maintain pool, look no further. Owning a fiberglass pool is very low maintenance. How does less than 30 minutes a week sound to you for maintaining your pool? Awesome, right! Due to the gel coating, fiberglass pools are resistant to algae growth! Since there are no pores, there is no place for the algae to hide and grow. Also, with fiberglass, you do not need to worry about replacing liners or doing an acid wash every couple of years, like concrete pools. Fiberglass pools free you from rugged maintenance schedules and allow you to relax and enjoy your pool.

Lifetime Cost

Not only are fiberglass pools low maintenance, but they are also very durable. Many manufacturers offer lifetime warranties. While the upfront cost of a fiberglass pool are more than other styles, their lifetime cost is lower. Since upkeep is minimal - no replacing liners, replastering, acid washing, etc. - the lifetime cost of owning a fiberglass pool is less than other pool types. Two other factors that keep the lifetime cost low are chemicals and heat. Because there is no algae to worry about you save money on chemicals. And because of the layers of a fiberglass pool, most retain heat better, saving you money on the cost of keeping your water warm.

Although the pool itself is not likely to leak, loose fittings and other problems, near or around your pool pump, can still result in a leak. If you suspect a leak don’t delay. Contact the experts at Aquaman Leak Detection today.
