Its hard to give an exact price on a fibreglass pool as the cost can vary significantly depending on the type you choose, the size and whether you include extra features or not. Additional factors such as access to the property and the condition of your backyard can also influence the overall price. If the ground needs to be cleared or tree or structure removal needs to be done before construction can commence, it’s likely that the price will be more than if this was not necessary. To get an exact price that is personalised to your specific needs and backyard, its best to get in touch with our team to organise your free onsite quote.
Fibreglass pools have many benefits when compared to the other swimming pool options, vinyl liner and concrete pools. They can be installed in a matter of a week whereas concrete pools take far longer and can take 3 to 6 months to build. The interior surface of a fibreglass pool is virtually nonporous which makes it highly compatible with salt and is resistant to algae, bacteria, and heat. They are simple to maintain and easy to clean. Fibreglass pools are extremely long lasting and come in an array of designs, colours, and shapes.
It is a type of swimming pool that is constructed in a manufacturing plant using the highest quality fibreglass. They come in a variety of styles.
Fibreglass pools are built onto a mould using many layers of superior grade fibreglass. Our fibreglass shells are made using a 10-point construction process. The initial layer is made up of an advanced colour technology gel coat, this is the colour of your pool. The second layer is applied using the highest quality vinyl liner ester resin, the third layer is polyester resin, fourth is woven roving. A structural honeycomb layer is applied next followed by the final layer. Once this is complete, the shell is cured and extracted from the mould. Lastly, the pool shell is trimmed and goes through a vigorous quality assurance check.
Fibreglass technology has advanced significantly over the years and because of this concrete pools are no longer the go-to pool for prospective buyers. Fibreglass pools are simple and straightforward to install and the overall costs involved with running it and the effort required to clean it, is significantly less than that of a concrete pool. They are extremely durable and long lasting. Concrete pools are typically more expensive to install than fibreglass as they are made from scratch onsite and require far more labour. The ongoing costs are usually more too as the interior needs to be resurfaced every 10 to 15 years which costs around $10,000. Furthermore, the surface of a concrete pool is naturally porous which makes the perfect environment for algae and bacteria to harbour and multiply. As a result, concrete pool owners will spend more money and time cleaning their pool.
Fibreglass pools are not only popular because of their minimal upkeep and fast installation but because they are strong and extremely long lasting too. Innovative manufacturing allows fibreglass pools to constructed to such a superior standard that they can outlast the lifetime of a concrete pool. A good quality fibreglass pool that has been built to specific construction standards will last for decades. Our pools surpass the Australian and worldwide standard for fibreglass pool thickness and have been expertly engineered to withstand earth movements and harsh weather conditions.
A fibreglass pool can be installed in as little as 7 days if all goes smoothly. It’s important to remember though, unforeseen factors such as weather, delayed council approvals and unexpected surprises when digging can extend the expected time frame for your pool to be installed. Normally, fibreglass pools are completed in 1 to 3 weeks.
