This is probably our most asked question from our customers who may have received a quote for pool services or have worked with us over the years. Early on we did all types of pool services, from in-ground, to above ground, but we really fell in love with fiberglass pools from Thursday Pools and River Pools. Once we started focusing all of our efforts into promoting fiberglass pools as a great choice for our customers for so many reasons.
Fiberglass pools are much less expensive to maintain. Electricity usage is typically 25 to 30 percent less. Maintenance chemicals are also cut by almost 70 percent. Add those figures up over the lifetime of a pool and you will quickly see what you will be saving on your pool budget every year.
Concrete or Gunite pools can be a nightmare with fluctuating temperatures and seasonal stresses. Costly acid washing and plaster repair will turn a beautiful pool into a money pit over time. Vinyl-lined pools need regular replacement of their vinyl liner. What initially seemed like an inexpensive choice has become a regular cost every few years with no end in sight.
Fiberglass is the natural choice for all seasons and climates. Using a composite flexible material that adapts to the changing seasons, fiberglass construction is far superior. Fiberglass pools also inhibit the growth of algae far better than concrete and vinyl. Smaller algae growth equals less time cleaning and more time enjoying your pool.
Fiberglass pools take less time and contractors to install than other types of inground pools. This means you can start enjoying your pool faster.
Here are just a few major benefits of fiberglass pools and why we install them exclusively:
Less Maintenance and Chemical Costs: Compared to traditional vinyl liner and concrete pools, our non-abrasive and non-porous fiberglass pool surface inhibits the growth of algae, thus reducing the amount of time and chemicals needed to maintain the pool.
No Liner Replacement, Plastering, or Painting: Any other type of pool surface will require long-term maintenance or replacement.
Beautifully-Crafted Designs: In every Thursday Pools fiberglass pool design, you will find strategically-placed benches, sun ledges, step-outs and more. This not only makes the pools perfect for play, but for getting the most fun and function out of every design.
High End Options Without The Costs: Fiberglass pools can offer you high-end options traditionally found in concrete pools without the costs associate with a traditional concrete construction. For example, our Infinity Pool Design with its vanishing edge will cost significantly less than it would in a concrete project.
Pet-Friendly: Pets are family too. Fiberglass pools are known to be the most pet-friendly pools. With fiberglass, you don’t have to worry about your pet producing tears or punctures like you would in a vinyl lined pool. It is also important to note that fiberglass pools are typically designed with several entry and exit points, which make it safer for your pet who will be just as curious about a pool as a child would be.
