Compare to  Concrete Plaster Pool Install

  • Maintenance:  Is more likely for algae to embed in plaster over time. Stains easily and constantly throws the water chemistry out of balance. Increased expense for chemicals.
  • Life time cost: Prone to cracking and erosion. Affected by water chemistry. Ages and becomes rough requiring acid washing or  $4k polishing job for Hydrazzo. Has to be replastered - $15k
  • Surface: The cosmetic surface that is applied over the gunite substrate is beautiful and very hard and smooth for many years with Hydrazzo. 
  • Seats or Benches:  Custom built Concrete Hydrazzo Plaster pools have unlimited options for benches, seats and tanning ledges. 
  • Quality Control: Built on site and dependent on the installer who shows up on the day of install, custom mixing of concrete products depends on installer.
  • Slow installation: Installation can take up to a year for some concrete pool projects.

    Fiberglass swimming pools have the lowest cost of ownership over time. The fiberglass shell resists algae growth, the shell is a better insulator, and the structure never needs liner replacements or resurfacing like vinyl liner and gunite/concrete pools.

Consider installing a Fiberglass Pool

  • Low maintenance: The gel coat surface of the fiberglass pool shell is nonporous.  This inhibits the growth of algae and reduces the amount of sanitizing chemicals required to maintain the pool. 
  • Little or No life time cost: 99% of the time there is never any money invested in the shell of fiberglass pools.  No vinyl liner to replace and no resurfacing.
  • Non-abrasive surface : The gel coat surface of fiberglass pools is smooth to the touch.
  • Built-in Seats and Steps: Most fiberglass pool designs have seating and all have steps incorporated into the shell of the pool.
  • Quality Control: Mnf. in controlled environment: Fiberglass pools are built in the controlled climate of a factory. 
  • Quick installation : Because the shells of fiberglass pools are built off site, the installation occurs more rapidly....3-5 weeks on average.
  • Beautiful: As seen in the above image, you can do amazing things with a fiberglass swimming pool.
  • 50 year warranty: longest structural industry in the industry.
  • Shapes: Limited shapes and pools can have a bathtub look and feel. 
  • Stairs and seating : Stairs and seating are limited and predetermined. 
  • Structural Integrity: 17 times stronger than Gunite / plaster pools. Less affected by water chemistry fluctuations. Very Smooth surface. No resurfacing required. Longest lasting material, Virtually indestructible.
  • Chemical Usage: Uses less chemicals than Vinyl and gunite plaster pools. 
  • Maintenance: Algae and stains are less likely to penetrate it compared to Vinyl and gunite plaster pools. 
  • Major Renovation: None is required.
