There are different types of swimming pools in the market. There are concrete ones, which use concrete as their base, and there are fibreglass ones that use a moulded fibreglass vessel. If you’re on the fence between the two types, you might want to consider fibreglass, instead. Here are some reasons why:
- Easy installation – concrete swimming pools require time to get built. The normal wait time is up to several months, as the concrete foundation need time to dry. With a fibreglass pool, all you’ll need is a hole dug deep enough to install the fibreglass. The whole project can be completed in a matter of weeks.
- Easy maintenance – fibreglass has a smooth surface that makes it difficult for mould and algae to cling to and grow on. That makes one less worry for you when it comes to maintenance. The smooth surface also makes it is easier to clean. Expect to spend a short thirty minutes a week dealing with any accumulated dirt on the pool. Australians will also appreciate that fibreglass pools can handle salt water better than concrete ones, useful with the many seaside pools in the continent, especially in cities like Perth.
- Easy on the wallet – the initial investment may be roughly equal with concrete pools of similar size, but fibreglass pools are more affordable to maintain than concrete ones. Additionally, they last longer in most conditions, reducing the need for maintenance repairs.
