Why Buy a Fibreglass Swimming Pool?

Global Administrator

Concrete or fibreglass? Here’s a watertight case for choosing a fibreglass swimming pool.

1. Quick as a splash

Your fibreglass pool can be installed in as little as two days, after council approval.

2. The big finish

An impervious pigmented surface finish called 'gelcoat' is applied during manufacture. So you needn’t spend time and money on tiling.

3. Maintenance free

Under normal conditions, the gelcoat finish never needs painting. It cleans easily and resists stains.

4. Smooth and safe

Unlike some other materials, a fibreglass pool is not abrasive and there are no sharp edges - just smooth seating areas.

5. Flexing its muscle

The high tensile strength of fibreglass lets the pool shell flex without cracking to accommodate earth movement.

6. Add a little salt

Salt water pools are becoming increasingly popular for their healthy, natural feel. Salt water is totally compatible with fibreglass.

7. You get what you see

The pool style you select is exactly what you get at home. No hit or miss guesswork as the pool shell arrives on site pre-formed and complete.

8. Looking good

Fibreglass pools come in a fantastic range of colours, shapes, sizes and designs to suit almost any home and outdoor living space.

9. Warmer water

Fibreglass is an insulator so the water is insulated from the cold ground soils.

10. Colour

Choose a MarbleTechTM finish, exclusive to Freedom, in a range of decorator colours.

11. Chemicals

A fibreglass pool uses less chemicals as the surface is smooth and impervious to water.

12. Have fun

That’s all that’s left to do, with the most hassle-free pool material available.
