Fiberglass pools are a popular choice for homeowners looking to enhance their outdoor living spaces with a durable and low-maintenance swimming pool. Unlike traditional concrete pools, fiberglass pools are pre-manufactured shells that are installed in one piece, offering a faster installation process.


Advantages of Fiberglass Pools

One of the significant advantages of fiberglass pools is their smooth, non-porous surface, which resists algae growth and makes cleaning and maintenance easier. Additionally, these pools require fewer chemicals and have lower lifetime maintenance costs compared to other pool types. Their flexibility and durability also make them less prone to cracking or chipping.


Considerations for Installing Fiberglass Pools

Before installing a fiberglass pool, it’s essential to consider the access to the installation site, since the pool shell is delivered in one piece. Moreover, homeowners should factor in the cost of excavation, backfill, and the surrounding landscaping when budgeting for the installation. Proper installation by experienced professionals is crucial to ensure the pool’s longevity and performance.


Steps in Fiberglass Pool Installation

The transformative journey to a vibrant backyard with a fiberglass pool starts with meticulous planning and preparation. At Tri-City Pools, we excel in aligning every step with precision. Initially, our team secures all necessary permits, ensuring compliance with local codes. Following that, excavation begins, creating a perfect niche for your new pool. We guarantee structural integrity by laying a sturdy foundation, normally with gravel, facilitating proper drainage.

Next, the prefabricated fiberglass shell, crafted to your selected design, is carefully lowered into the space. Once in place, we ensure it’s perfectly level, then start the process of plumbing and connecting the pool to your utilities. The pool is then backfilled for support, and concrete decking or your chosen landscape design surrounds it to provide a seamless look. Lastly, after water chemistry adjustments, your aquatic enchantment is ready to dive into.


Maintaining Fiberglass Pools

Enjoyment of your fiberglass pool from Tri-City Pools should be as effortless as possible, which is why maintenance is simplified compared to other pool types. Regular care includes monitoring and adjusting water chemistry, which is less demanding owing to the non-porous surface of fiberglass, discouraging algae growth. Skimming and vacuuming make up the routine cleaning, efficiently keeping the pool inviting.

Moreover, inspecting and maintaining the pool’s filtration system is essential in preventing any disruption in usage. Seasonally, our knowledgeable team can provide professional pool opening and closing services to protect your investment. Avoiding abrasive cleaners and maintaining a proper pH balance are key practices that will extend the life of your pool, ensuring it remains a gleaming jewel in your backyard oasis year after year.
