The in-ground pools are prefabricated. The bodies are made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic. This is an alternative to vinyl-lined, gunite and poured concrete pools.

30 years WRONG! No one knows for sure how long a fiberglass pool will last when properly maintained. Our company has restored fiberglass pools built in the 1960's, when they were manufactured in 4 pieces and then screwed together on-site. If the gel coat on any fiberglass pool is removed and then replaced with new swimming pool gel coat once every 20 years, they can last into the next century.


Can you drain a fiberglass in ground swimming pool?

No!!! Under no circumstances should you drain a fiberglass in-ground pool. Unlike the standard in-ground pool, the fiberglass pool base is unreinforced concrete or other hard surface material that was applied directly to the soil in a thin layer. It is only there to allow the fiberglass to be sprayed on and form a hard shell. The weight of the water is what holds the fiberglass in place. If you drain the pool without refilling it immediately, you will allow external ground pressures and/or ground water to buckle the sides or bottom and you will have the fiberglass completely redone.


What is the life of a fiberglass swimming pool?

Can you insulate a swimming pool?

Gunite and concrete pools can be insulated by resurfacing with fiberglass. Because fiberglass is non-porous, heat is not lost through the plaster finish. If the pool is already fiberglass, there is nothing further that can be done, unless the pool is not yet installed in which case a spray of insulating material can be given to the outside of the fibreglass pool prior to installation.
