Fiberglass Pools are Low-Maintenance!
Fiberglass Swimming Pools are durable,
molded one-piece units.
You have stock sizes and designs from which to choose.
They are made off site which is different than the vinyl
liner and gunite pools that are built on site.
They are delivered on a flat bed truck and
installed in a matter of days. Clients that want
to limit the amount of construction time for their
landscape design consider this type of pool.
Here are some other things to consider:
- Once installed, it doesn’t have to be
relined or resurfaced. Cost-wise they are
comparable to a gunite pool of the same size, but not
having to resurface it in 8-10 years is a big savings.
- The surface is smooth and comfortable. It also comes in various colors. Tile patterns of fish or other nautical designs can be put in the surface to make your pool unique.
- Tile is installed along the top
edge of the pool giving it a pretty band of color and a
nice finished edge.
- There are
models with benches molded into them that also work as
the point of entry and exit (no aluminum ladders needed).
- There are standard
widths that go up to 16 feet. This is because
it must fit on a flat bed truck. This is the only limiting
design factor I’ve encountered.
BEFORE – This fiberglass
was installed before I was
hired to develop the landscape
plan for the back yard. Extensive grading and drainage
work was done before the construction of the pool deck,
walls, planters and steps to facilitate an easy transition
between the levels and to assure proper water flow.
AFTER – This pool is elegant and dazzles
every visitor! The
with a herringbone bond is distinctive. The
bull nose brick coping is another beautiful detail.
The capped composite stone seating wall creates a
nice place to sit and keeps people safe from falling
to the sidewalk level below.
This type of pool is something to seriously consider
for your back yard project. They are strong,
long-lasting and low-maintenance!
