  1. Fiberglass can be designed in virtually any shape — for a price. Remember, too that the pool will be delivered to your home in one piece so it needs to fit on a truck and that truck needs to be able to get into your backyard. Size requirements need to be carefully calculated.
  2. You can have seats and steps built into the pool while it’s at the factory. You can also add a hot tub, waterfall, in pool lighting and any of the other amenities you can have with any other pool construction material.
  3. Fiberglass is one of the most budget friendly pools available.
  4. After you’ve chosen your design, the pool will be created in a factory and delivered to your home. Your pool contractor, in the meantime, will be excavating the area where the pool will sit. A fiberglass pool installation can be completed in as few as three days.
  5. Don’t forget to decide on whether you want a deck and if so, what kind and style.
  6. Fiberglass pools are popular because they don’t require major maintenance and upkeep as do vinyl or concrete pools. The smoth finish means the pH levels will remain stable. The chance of algae growth is minimal. You will save money on pool service and maintenance with this type pool material.
