The decision to add an inground swimming pool to your home is an easy one. Inground swimming pools are a great way to add value to your home. Swimming pools also provide your family with an easy and convenient source of entertainment and exercise. However, there are a variety of swimming pool options available. One of the best options for homeowners is a fiberglass swimming pool. Fiberglass swimming pools have a variety of advantages over traditional concrete swimming pools that make adding one to your backyard a smart investment.
The biggest advantage to installing a fiberglass swimming pool is that they are mostly built in a factory instead of your backyard. This means they can be installed in your backyard quickly and easily. When you install a fiberglass pool, the hole for the pool is dug and the fiberglass pool is lowered into the hole with a crane. After that the only steps necessary to get you swimming are installing the plumbing and deck to your new inground swimming pool. This ease of installation allows your swimming pool contractor to install your fiberglass pool quickly and easily without the added mess, noise, and construction of other inground pool types.
Fiberglass pools are also much easier to maintain than concrete pools. By nature, fiberglass pools have a non porous interior. This allows the pool to be easily wiped clean of any algae that may grow, concrete pools that have turned green often need extra scrubbing to be eradicated of an algae infestation. Also traditional inground pools need to have marcite repaired and replaced periodically. This can be both time consuming and costly.
As a rule fiberglass pools can last much longer than other pool types. Fiberglass has been used in the boating industry for years because of its ability to withstand the effects of water. The first fiberglass pool was installed in the 1950’s and it is still in use today.
A fiberglass swimming pool will also save you money on chemicals. Concrete pools leach alkali into the pool water, which requires extra chemicals to counteract its effects. This means you will not only save money on chemicals you will also save the time that it takes to add the chemicals to your pool. Plus, your family will enjoy swimming in a pool with fewer chemicals.
Most swimming pool contractors, including the Blue Hawaiian fiberglass pool builders, offer a large variety of pool designs. Modern fiberglass pools are available in so many shapes, sizes and designs, that anyone can find the perfect swimming pool design for their family.
