Fiberglass Pool Installation Considerations
Who doesn’t love spending time in a swimming pool? There is something to be said about relaxing in the pool, getting your feet wet or sitting poolside with friends and family. An in-ground fiberglass swimming pool is also a great way to enjoy the outdoors with the kids. When thinking about a fiberglass pool installation project there are several considerations like cost, space availability and the location of your installation to plan for.
How much do fiberglass pools cost? That differs from region to region and shipping can impact the total cost. We work with distributors in strategic locations throughout the US to help keep costs low. This is one of the main reasons we use fiberglass pool distributors. Distributors maintain a selection of fiberglass swimming pool models, which are shipped from our manufacturing facility in South Carolina. This makes our great pools more readily available. With several financing options available, it’s never been easier to get into a fiberglass pool.
Backyard space availability is another important factor. Do you know how much square footage you have to work with in your yard? If not, get prepared because we have a variety of fiberglass pools in different sizes and forms to fit most backyards. It’s also important to visualize the extras that can go with your new fiberglass pool such as decks, hardscapes, firepits, water features, pavilions, etc.
Fiberglass pool location plays a critical role when deciding to where to install the pool. Some cities have very specific regulations for pool installation. These regulations can be different from city to city and in different statewide regions. Most installers already know these restrictions and can help you get whatever paperwork you need. It’s also important to have a survey of your backyard space, this will help the swimming pool contractor determine possible hazards underneath the ground where the fiberglass pool will go.
Cost, space and location are important factors to consider when installing a fiberglass swimming pool. Don’t worry, we work with highly qualified swimming pool contractors and they should be able to guide you through the entire process. From getting financing, initial site design and working with local municipalities to get your fiberglass pool installed our professional installers can help you every step of the way.
