Benefits of an In-Ground Fibreglass Pool  

by Pool Builders on 04-09-2013 in Articles

If you are going to design your own swimming pool, what type would it be and of what material will it be made out of? With many options today, it would be hard to select the kind or type of pool you want. All you wanted is just a swimming pool where you can have fun, where you can hang out with your family on the weekends and where you can entertain your guests in one of your parties. This will require our careful consideration.

Some pool builders will entice you to opt for an aboveground type because as they say, it is far cheaper and easily transferable to other places. To complement its affordability, the aboveground type would best be a fibreglass kind. If an aboveground fibreglass swimming pools sounds like a good idea, what about an in-ground fibreglass pool? Have you even considered about getting the latter for your property?

What should you know about in-ground fibreglass swimming pools? What benefits could it bring to you or to your property?

The Differences

In contrast to the aboveground type, the in-ground type is built and installed on excavated ground, not above the ground and not even on excavated soil. And because of this, you cannot transfer it elsewhere in your property or bring it with your when your relocate. But duh, of what value is an aboveground pool anyway?

Because they are not permanent fixtures, aboveground pools add little or no value to your property. On the other hand, in-ground pools are permanent fixtures and they can be considered as an improvement in your property, much as adding a second floor to your house. Moreover, it is a great investment that greatly compliments your other investment, which is your property. When you decide to sell your property in the years to come, it will have a really high market value.

The Material Itself

If you are considering building an aboveground pool, a fibreglass material will come perfect with it and no other material else to allow easy relocation. On the other hand, in-ground pools will do with a variety of material including fibreglass, concrete and vinyl. But we will be talking about fibreglass in here. Why so?

Installing in-ground pools is quite expensive so why stretch the expenses further with a material that won't make your pool easy to clean and maintain, one that takes time to install? The concrete is the material in question. Concrete pools do not allow for easy cleaning because algae and other micro-organisms can develop easily in the pool's water and surface. So this calls for more chemicals to be poured on the water and more scrubbing to kill and remove the micro-organisms.

If your pool is fibreglass, you will not have such maintenance and cleaning issues. Fibreglass material may be expensive, but easier to clean and maintain, thus it is a cost-effective material in the long run. And compared to about three months of installation for concrete pools, it only takes a few days for fibreglass.

Installing a swimming pool is already expensive from the start so why bother yourself building a type of pool which cannot add value to your property and of a material which could take the fun out of your swimming? If you consider having a swimming pool built, have your pool builder Sydney built an in-ground fibreglass pool for you. This is the best investment that is both easily maintained and cost-effective.
