How can you not afford to buy a fiberglass pool?
Fiberglass pools are much less expensive to maintain. Electricity usage is typically 25%-30% less. Maintenance chemicals are also cut by almost 70%. Add those figures up over the lifetime of a pool and you will quickly see what you will be saving on your pool budget every year.
Who wouldn’t want to save time and money?
Concrete or Gunite pools can be a nightmare with fluctuating temperatures and seasonal stresses. Costly acid washing and plaster repair turns a beautiful pool into a money pit over time.
Vinyl lined pools need regular replacement of their vinyl liners, however vinyl pools afford you more customization in design and shape.
Fiberglass is the natural choice for all seasons and all climates. Using a composite flexible material that adapts to the changing seasons, fiberglass construction is far superior.
Fiberglass pools inhibit the growth of algae far better than concrete and vinyl. Less algae growth equals less time cleaning and more time enjoying your pool.
Concrete pools can take months to install. Lots of different workers are needed which can create headaches when a contractor miscommunicates an important issue that wreaks havoc on your pool project.
Fiberglass constructed pools use fewer contractors and are easier to install. Start enjoying your pool faster with less maintenance and cost over the lifetime of your pool. It’s a pretty simple choice when presented with the facts.
