If you want a pool that is low maintenance and quick to install, a fibreglass pool is a great choice. The surface of a fibreglass pool is virtually impermeable making it highly resistant to algae. This means less cleaning and chemicals are needed compared to other types of pools. As they are made off-site, they can be installed in 7 days rather than months. Fibreglass pools come in a huge variety of price points so, there is an option to suit almost any budget.
A fibreglass pool is a type of permanent swimming pool that is constructed in a factory using high-grade fibreglass. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes, colours and designs.
Many layers of fibreglass are constructed onto a premade mould in one of our state of the art manufacturing plants. The first layer is an advanced colour technology gel coat, followed by a layer of superior-quality vinyl ester resin, next is a polyester resin layer, woven roving, structural honeycomb, and finished with a final layer. It gets trimmed and extracted from the mould before undergoing a thorough quality assurance check.
Decades ago, concrete pools were the be-all and end-all in the pool industry but since fibreglass pools hit the market, they have become increasingly popular amongst pool buyers and are the new go-to option. This due to their quick installation, durability and low maintenance. Fibreglass is smooth and nonporous which prevents algae from attaching to it and manifesting. Concrete, on the other hand, is highly porous and the tiny nooks and crannies in the finish make the perfect environment for algae to nestle in and grow. This means more money needs to be spent on cleaning and more time too. Not only that, concrete pools can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months to install and because they are built from scratch, they are usually far more expensive. They need to be resurfaced every 10 to 15 years and this averages around $10,000. Fibreglass never needs to be replaced or resurfaced over its lifetime. Once it's in the ground, that's it.
Fibreglass pool technology has come a long way and this reflects in the quality of our fibreglass swimming pools. They have extreme tactile strength and have been designed to withstand harsh Australian climates and slight earth movements without the risk of cracking. You can expect our pools to last more than 30 years whilst maintaining their stunning appearance and structural integrity.
Generally, if everything runs on schedule, your fibreglass pool can be installed in a matter of a week. Some uncontrollable factors may affect this timeframe and it may take a little longer. Factors such as weather, delayed council approvals, and the condition of the ground where the pool is to go are generally the main culprits, however, our team always endeavour to install your pool as quick as we can and the typical time it takes to install one of our pools is one to three weeks.
