Why Should I Choose A Fibreglass Pool?
Ballina Pool Shop provides fibreglass pools Ballina people can depend on to offer a high level of quality and value. Whether this is your first pool, or you’re planning to upgrade or replace your existing pool, a fibreglass option is a great choice. Fibreglass provides many of the advantages of tile or concrete but is much lighter and easier to maintain. Some of the advantages of fibreglass pools include:
- They retain the heat better than other types of pools. If you want a pool you can use all year round without incurring high heating costs, fibreglass works really well.
- A smooth surface. As fibreglass swimming pools are very smooth, they’re safe to swim in. They also don’t have any crevices or bumps for biological contaminants to shelter in, reducing the risk of algae or lichen build-up.
- Available in a wide variety of shapes. If you want a kidney-shaped, arched or irregularly shaped pool, fibreglass can be moulded into a pool that’s just what you’re looking for. It’s particularly suitable for pools featuring curves.
- Easy to repair. In the unlikely event that your pool becomes dented or scratched over time, fibreglass is fast, easy and cheap to repair.
- Low maintenance. Unlike other types of pools, fibreglass options don’t need a liner (which needs to be replaced every few years) and don’t deteriorate in the same way as concrete or tile pools can.
We believe fibreglass pools are one of the best options out there for pool owners.
Fibreglass Pools - The Green Option
If you’re concerned about the environment and want to make planet-friendly choices when it comes to your pool, you can’t do much better than a fibreglass pool. Listed below are just some of the reasons why people are turning to fibreglass pools for an eco-friendly choice.
- Less heating is required. As already mentioned, fibreglass holds the heat in a way that tiled or concreted pools don’t. This means less artificial heating is needed to keep a fibreglass pool at a comfortable temperature. In many cases, users can swim comfortably almost all year through using solar heating.
- It’s environmentally friendly to produce. The chemical reactions involved in the production of fibreglass are largely exothermic – heat is given out in fibreglass production rather than required. This means that fibreglass doesn’t require much energy to produce it, which is a good thing if you’re looking to minimise resource consumption.
Fibreglass pools can be recycled! When no longer required, fibreglass can be broken down into compounds that can be used elsewhere. In addition, fibreglass material from old pools can also be upcycled into anything from bike helmets to insulation. If you want to use a material for your pool that can be used again, you can’t do much better than fibreglass.
Less cleaning products are required. Fibreglass naturally repels biological contaminants, which makes it easier to keep your pool clean without needing high levels of harsh chemicals.
Of all the various materials on the market for constructing pools, fibreglass pool installation from the Ballina Pool Shop is among the most environmentally responsible available on the market.
