Pros & Cons of Concrete & Fibreglass Pools

It is almost imperative that you have a pool at home if you live in Australia. Summer is almost bearable when you get to beat the blazing sun by dipping into a clear blue pool. A pool is a great asset for your home because not only will it keep your family cool and entertained, it increases the value of your property. If you are thinking of installing a pool, you won’t be surprised to learn that there are many different options available. Let us help you decide what type of pool would be ideal for you.

Look at the differences between a fibreglass pool and a concrete pool.

Pros of a concrete pool

Concrete pools have always led the way in pool manufacturing. One of the main benefits of a concrete pool is that it is long lasting. If the water chemistry is maintained properly, the lining of your pool will last for generations to come. There is a variety of design options to choose from because the material can be moulded into any shape or size. Unlike other materials, a concrete pool is built on location so you can see what is happening every step of the way. Whether you choose to plaster, paint, spray or mosaic the lining – the result will look neat and stunning.

Cons of a fibreglass pool

The problem with a fibreglass pool is that the design options are limited. You’ll often find that with fibreglass pools, you have to choose designs out of a catalogue and there is no room for customisation. While the smoothness of the surface is a positive factor, it can also be a disadvantage, especially if you have young children in the family because the surface becomes very slippery
