Fiberglass Pools: Resurfacing with Some Serious Pool Cred
For those of you who have read our previous post giving you an honest comparison of the various types of swimming pools – concrete pools (made with shotcrete or gunite), vinyl pools and fiberglass pools – you will find this update on fiberglass pools very interesting.
As you may recall, the disadvantages to fiberglass pools that previously we listed were as follows:
- Limited shapes and designs. Because fiberglass pools are built from a mold, the consumer is limited to the shapes and sizes offered by the various fiberglass pool manufacturers.
- No wider than 16′. Fiberglass Pools are shipped via the road. Shipping restrictions limit the width of the fiberglass pool shell to 16′.
- Pool Depth. Very few fiberglass pools are certified for diving.
Now, thanks to the innovation of companies like Trilogy Pools, these disadvantages no longer exist. Forgive the overused term, but Trilogy Pools has literally revolutionized fiberglass pool offerings with their customized finishes and accessories that make any pool look like it belongs in the back yard of your favorite celebrity, rock star, or HGTV Dream Home.
Pools of Fun is pleased to introduce to you the fiberglass Fusion® line of pools, which Trilogy describes as “Water features you can swim in.” To see some aesthetically beautiful examples of their new line, click here: http://www.trilogypools.com/pools-a-spas/. Trilogy has eliminated the design problem of the 16’ restriction, the shapes and designs are varied to everyone’s taste, and some of their fiberglass pools are even certified for diving. When you revisit the benefits of owning a fiberglass pool, this Fusion® fiberglass pools line option quickly becomes one of the most attractive:
- Little or no lifetime cost. Fiberglass pools eliminate the need of a replacement liner.
- Non-abrasive surface. The solid surface of fiberglass pools is smooth to the touch.
- Built-in seats, tanning ledges, and steps. Most fiberglass pool designs have seating and all have steps incorporated into the shell of the pool.
- Quick installation. Because the shells of fiberglass pools are built off site, the installation occurs more rapidly. The average installation time is completed in three-to-four weeks, on average.
- Repairable. In the event that scratches or surface cracks appear on your fiberglass pool they are easily repaired. This is often accomplished with very little visual evidence of the repair.
