Earl's Pools Incredibly Informative Pool Blog

Why are so many People Interested in Fiberglass Pools?

Posted by Josh Bush on Mon, Apr 26, 2010 @ 17:04 PM




People have never been to enthusiastic about keeping up their pools or water chemistry.  They love to swim and entertain but hate to maintain them.  That's one thing that is so good about fiberglass pools.

  • Fiberglass pools are not pourous so you aren't running that pool pump nonstop to feed more chemicals to the pool for sanitizing the water, since you aren't losing those chemicals through the side walls like you would in vinyl liner and gunite pools.
  • With the slick side walls but textured bottoms it is much harder for algea to form in the pool, which is much different than the abrasive surfaces of gunite pools.
  • With salt systems now on all the pools that we install it keeps the pool maintenance down even that much more.

Being a pool builder I never seem to have time for my own pool maintenance.  Fiberglass pools have made this problem not a problem at all, because I hardly ever have to do anything to my pool.  A good cleaner and salt system eliminates almost all of my pool maintenace.  With the beautiful colors that Leisure Pools has to offer with their patented Aquagaurd Gelcoats, the top of the industry, I can own or install pools that are not only easy to maintain but are beautiful to admire.  The Leisure pools that we offer also have an unsurpased fixed 35 year structural warranty.
