Inground Fiberglass Swimming Pools Common Questions
What Makes Fiberglass Pools So Much Better?
From design to manufacturing, and delivery to installation, our fiberglass pools are a highly efficient option. The process is really quite impressive! The swimming pool structure itself is built as one single piece. Prefabricated from a factory mold in a series of layers, each new layer is fused with the next for extra strength and support. The pool shell is then reinforced with additional material to strengthen it while preserving its integrity and beauty.
The result is a strong but flexible pool body that can be shipped to the installation site as a single unit. These pools can be built in a large variety of shapes depending on the mold used, which offers a wide variety of choices to home owners. Another benefit of our unique building process is that you can easily including extras such as built-in steps, decks, and seating areas. The question isn’t “Why fiberglass?“, but rather, “Why not?”
How Are the Inground Fiberglass Pools Made?
Each pool begins as a mold taken from a pattern model, built to reflect the specific pool shape desired. Because of this, our pool molds can be used to create numerous pools of the same shape. From mold preparation to the final product, here are five stages of the manufacturing process to gain a better understanding of the craftsmanship that goes into creating these beautiful pools.
- MOLD PREPARATION: Our mold preparation process follows strict standards, keeping the prepping environment clean. We meticulously clean our molds to sterilize and eliminate any imperfections and debris. Additionally, we protect our molds with plastic coverings when they are not in use.
- GELCOAT APPLICATION: During this stage, three layers of gelcoat are sprayed onto the mold with a short period of curing time between each layer. Our quality control team ensures that each layer meets our rigorous standards before proceeding to the next one.
- VINYL ESTER RESIN APPLICATION: The vinyl ester resin application serves as a protective layer for the gelcoat and is carefully sprayed onto the mold to waterproof the pool and increase its wall thickness. We use precise measurements to ensure accurate application for each pool size, followed by a curing process and a final quality check before proceeding to the next stage.
- FIBERGLASS RE-LAMINATION: The initial layer of fiberglass is applied as a “skin,” followed by a reinforcement stage, and the attachment of lifting lugs for transportation purposes.
- READY FOR SHIPPING: Upon completion of each manufacturing stage, the pool is ready for shipping. Barrier Reef Fiberglass Pools LLC maintains the highest standards for fiberglass pool manufacturing and provides a manufacturer’s sheet for each pool to ensure the use of correct materials.
How Is a Fiberglass Pool Different from Other Pool Types?
Since inground fiberglass pools are constructed and installed as a single sealed shell, they aren’t subject to a lot of the maintenance needs of other types of pools. For example, pools with vinyl liners often need to be regularly repaired or replaced. Concrete pools require surface preparation or plastering to finish and seal the pool surface, whereas fiberglass pools arrive with their surface already finished. Additionally, due to the material of their construction, these pools are naturally flexible and far less brittle and rigid than concrete pools built in place on site.
Since fiberglass pools arrive essentially pre-built, their installation time is typically far faster and easier than it is for other types of swimming pools that must be built in place. These are just a few of the many advantages that fiberglass pools offer over other types.
Swimming Pool Choices:
Pool Shapes – Barrier Reef pools come in a variety of shapes ranging from classic rectangular pools, to free-form shapes to suit your personal style.
Sundecks – Be it rectangle pools with sundecks, or curved pools with designed seating, our sundecks provide sublime venues for enjoying the outdoors.
Spas – Our one-piece spas are the perfect addition to any backyard pool project, and can bring your swimming experience to the height of luxury.
Pool Colors Options – Our pools come in six different colors.
Why Are Fiberglass Pools Popular?
Fiberglass pools are built in one solid piece giving them a lot of versatility. Features like stairs, sundecks, and seating areas can be designed right in as part of the initial mold design. The lack of a separate liner also means the pool won’t require regular resurfacing or liner replacement. These pools are also quite easy to keep clean. This is because the smooth gelcoat surface won’t harbor contaminants like a rougher surface (concrete) can.
How Long Does It Take to Install a Fiberglass Pool?
Fiberglass pools typically have the shortest installation time among the different types of pools (sometimes as little as 2-6 weeks pending each job). With other kinds of in-ground swimming pools, area preparation and installation can take months and involve lengthy onsite construction to actually construct the pool in place. Since fiberglass pools arrive pre-built and ready to install, the amount of time required is drastically shorter pending ground types like soil/ground/rock. This means, you get your pool much quicker, and without any additional unnecessary construction time. No one wants to be without a backyard for long!
How Durable Are Fiberglass Pools?
Vinyl pools require separate liners that are subject to puncture damage. Concrete pools can suffer from post-installation cracking once it sets and the pool settles as the ground shifts. But, fiberglass pools are much less prone to damage, often lasting for 30 years or more!
Are Fiberglass Pools Easy to Maintain?
Fiberglass pools are famed for their longevity and durability. They are often considered virtually maintenance-free since the tough fiberglass shell is non-porous and so inherently rugged. Out of all the swimming pool options, fiberglass pools require the least amount of maintenance.
The tough, puncture-resistant waterproof gel coating on the pool shell surface prevents water or chemicals from absorption. It also helps protect against penetration or build-up of pool algae or micro-debris as long as pool chemicals used properly.
Fiberglass pools require a lot less maintenance to keep them clean and beautiful. While fiberglass pools may have a higher initial installation cost than some other pool types, fiberglass pools tend to cost significantly less over the long term thanks to the low level of maintenance involved.
Why Should I Buy a Fiberglass Pool?
A fiberglass pool is flexible and designed to withstand ground movement. They are more weather-resistant, much better suited for cold weather climates, and is easier and less expensive to keep clean. Properly cared for, a fiberglass pool will last essentially trouble-free for years to come.
Additionally, these swimming pools are faster and easier to install, giving you more time to enjoy your pool. Your new fiberglass pool will be easy to maintain and care for, significantly adding to your long-term savings. Not to mention how incredible they look! The colors stay bright and reflect the sun in interesting and beautiful ways. The finish is smooth to the touch and water stays clear and clean easily.
