A Fibreglass Pool

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 include:

  • They retain the heat better than other types of pool surfaces. 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 shape 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, 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 fibreglass. 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.

In fact, our fibreglass pools come with a structural warranty of up to 20 years, giving you confidence in the durability of your investment.

Are fibreglass pools suitable for all types of climates?

Fibreglass pools suit various climates, including varying temperatures and weather conditions.

Whether you live in a region with hot summers or freezing winters, a quality fibreglass pool will withstand the climate.

What is the maintenance required for a fibreglass pool?

One of the advantages of choosing a fibreglass pool is its low maintenance requirements. Fibreglass pools have a smooth surface that enhances comfort and inhibits the growth of algae and other contaminants. However, regular cleaning, balancing the water chemistry and maintaining proper filtration and circulation are essential for keeping your fibreglass pool in optimal condition. Our team at Ballina Pool Shop can provide guidance and support on the specific maintenance tasks needed to ensure the longevity and beauty of your fibreglass pool.

Are there any special considerations for winterising a fibreglass pool?

Winterising a fibreglass pool is a straightforward process. Before the colder months arrive, it’s important to balance the pool water chemistry and adjust the sanitiser levels accordingly. It would also help to lower the water level to prevent freezing and potential damage caused by ice expansion. Covering the pool with a suitable winter cover is also recommended to keep debris out and maintain water quality. Our staff at Ballina Pool Shop can provide detailed instructions and recommendations for winterising your fibreglass pool based on your location and climate.

How do I choose the right size and shape for my fibreglass pool?

Selecting the right size and shape for your fibreglass pool depends on various factors, including available space, intended use and personal preferences. At Ballina Pool Shop, we offer various fibreglass pool designs with different shapes, colours and sizes to suit diverse lifestyles and aesthetic preferences. Our team of experts can guide you through the selection process, considering factors like your backyard layout, desired pool features and intended use. We will work closely with you to ensure that your fibreglass pool’s chosen size and shape perfectly complement your vision and meet your specific requirements.

Are there any specific considerations for preparing a site for a fibreglass pool installation?

Preparing the site properly for a fibreglass pool installation helps ensures a smooth and successful process. Before installation, it’s important to conduct a thorough site assessment, considering factors such as access to the installation area, soil conditions and potential obstacles. Excavation work may be required to create a level surface for the pool, and any necessary landscaping adjustments should be considered. At Ballina Pool Shop, we oversee the installation process, including site preparation, subcontracting and council approvals. Our experienced team will guide you through the necessary steps to prepare your site for a seamless pool installation experience.
