Fibreglass pools are a significant investment for any Australian family, so you may be wondering if the cost is worth it. Whether you choose concrete, fibreglass, or vinyl liner for a swimming pool will depend on several factors. Although each pool type has its pros and cons, we will focus on the pros of having a fibreglass pool for your home.
Here are five reasons why a fibreglass pool is worth investing (and swimming) in!
1. Easy to install
Both concrete and vinyl-lined pools are susceptible to weather trends during the installation process. Still, fibreglass pools are comparatively unaffected by unpredictable elements due to the fibreglass shell being constructed off-site.
2. Low maintenance
Fibreglass pools, particularly when compared to a concrete pool, are widely accepted as easier to maintain. Fibreglass pools are known for their smooth, shiny finish, easy to clean and require little maintenance. As any pool owner knows, algae is a menace if left untreated, but the smooth gel coat surface makes it more difficult to adhere to. Additionally, if you rub against gel coating while underwater, it is skin-friendly, and if you have to grip, as on stairs and walkways, the coating is non-skid.
3. Environmentally Friendly
Due to the efficiency of glass pools’ thermal properties, you will have a consistent temperature in your pool and spend less money warming it. In addition, you will spend less on chemicals than you would for a traditional pool, which saves you money and helps the environment.
4. Longer Lasting
There is no denying that fibreglass lasts – that is a fact worth keeping in mind. Fibreglass pools don’t degrade over time the way liner pools do.
5. An Investment In Your Health And Family
Are you looking for another reason why fibreglass pools are a good investment? Pool owners can reap many health benefits from fibreglass pools.
The health benefits of swimming have been well known for decades, and it is one of the best exercises you can do to stay fit. A fibreglass pool will also be more affordable than a concrete pool, which means you can stay healthy for less money.
Fibreglass pools offer excellent cardio and aerobic workout. The water’s buoyancy relieves joint pain and supports frail bones so that the elderly can also participate in swimming. It’s even better for you to exercise by playing in the pool with your family – so do it together.
