What is a Fiberglass Pool?
Homeowners across GTA, Toronto, Vaughan, Richmond Hill and all over south Ontario seem to be choosing fiberglass pools over traditional options such as vinyl liners and concrete pools and for good reasons.
A fiberglass pool is an extremely durable and low-maintenance option. Toronto experiences freezing temperatures in the winter months. You need a pool that can withstand the cold without any problem. Fiberglass pools can handle the frigid Canadian winters without degrading or cracking.
A fiberglass pool is made of reinforced fiberglass shell and covered in protective gel coatings. The pool shell is offered as a single-unit structure that can be installed quickly.
Fiberglass pools are remarkably easier to maintain and stand apart from concrete pools and vinyl liner pools. While vinyl pools are made with vinyl liners that must be replaced once every few years, concrete pools are made by pouring concrete to create the pool shell, which must be resurfaced every few years.
Fiberglass pools, on the other hand, are made of a single-unit fiberglass shell, which does not have to be replaced or resurfaced in any way. Fiberglass pools are quick to install and can be installed within a couple weeks
Benefits of Installing Fiberglass Pools in Your Toronto Home
Fiberglass pools offer some unique benefits over other options:
Extremely Durable – Fiberglass pools are extremely durable, strong and unlikely to be damaged. While vinyl pools may get punctured by sharp objects like pool poles or dog claws, which is not the case with fiberglass pools all thanks to its smooth surface.
Low Maintenance – The non-porous surface of a fiberglass pool shell keeps off algae whilst reducing the need for chemical treatments. Moreover, tiny particles don't stick to the smooth surface. What's more, fiberglass pool owners typically spend less time cleaning or maintaining their pools.
Quick Installation – A fiberglass inground pool can be installed in less than a week. Fiberglass pools are offered as one-piece structures. Once the shell is ready, it can be installed within a week. While a concrete pool can take up to 4 months to complete, your fiberglass pool can be installed within a week!
Unlimited Customization Possibilities - Cutting-edge manufacturing offers custom options such as tanning shelves, integrated hot tubs, in-floor cleaning systems, water features, infinity edges and LED lighting.
Long-Lasting – With good maintenance, you can be sure that the interior finish on your fiberglass pool will last for years.
Lower Lifetime Costs – With vinyl pools, the vinyl liners must be replaced every 7 to 10 years. That's a huge expense that you won't have to budget for when you invest in a fiberglass pool. Similarly, concrete pools must be resurfaced and acid-washed once in a few years. This is another thing you won't have to worry about when you install a fiberglass pool.
Energy Efficient – Whether you are looking for a small fiberglass pool or semi inground pool, fiberglass pools use very less energy to heat simply because they have excellent heat retention properties. Concrete pools are simply hard soil and vinyl pools are essentially a thin liner over the soil without any insulating properties.
