Fibreglass Pools and their Advantages throughout the Ownership Stages

In warm cities such as Perth, the occasional dip in a swimming pool is an awesome way to beat the heat. The benefits extend beyond that, however. Enlighten Me lists the advantages of having a pool at home, which include spending quality time with the family, having a nice venue for parties, and encouraging kids to be physically active. You could even expect an increase in home value should you decide to sell the property in the future.

Now that you know all about the benefits of having a pool at home, what type should you choose? If you want a low-maintenance pool that remains clear and resists algal growth very well, consider fibreglass pools from trusted manufacturers such as Palm City Pools.

Fibreglass is a relative newcomer in the swimming pool scene, but many have since discovered the advantages of this material. Have a look at the specific advantages of fibreglass pools at the three stages of ownership.


Home Improvement Pages cites price and ease of installation as the biggest attractions of fibreglass as a pool material. You’ll be able to take a dip in your new fibreglass pool seeming in no time. Once the pool has been manufactured and all building permits have been secured, a fibreglass pool can be installed within a week—sometimes in as short as a few days, if the weather and other circumstances are favourable. A concrete pool, in comparison, can take months to install.

Everyday Use and Maintenance

Pools made of fibreglass have a non-abrasive finish, which does not react to chemicals in the pool water. The finish is also uniformly smooth, making it ideal for families with kids. After all, the entire pool surface is devoid of any tiles that could crack and splinter, and thereby present an injury risk.

A fibreglass pool is also easier to maintain as blue-green algae will have no crevices that can harbour them. Furthermore, fibreglass swimming pools offer a construction method with a degree of flexibility, which prevents cracking under high stress loads from water and soil movement.

Removal and Transfer

If you opt to have the pool removed after it has outlived its purpose, or in view of a relocation or major home improvement project (such as a garage construction), your fibreglass pool does not have to go to waste. You can get in touch with a contractor such as Palm City Pools that professionally removes and refurbishes fibreglass swimming pools. You can have your current pool transferred to your new home so you don’t have to pay for a new one, or else allow another family to enjoy the pool that has served you so well.
