What You Need to Know About a Fibreglass Pool Installation
As our lives have become more complex, a large kidney-shaped pool is an outdated concept. What is becoming popular is a pre-moulded fibreglass pool installation that can fit into smaller gardens, yet still provide sufficient functionality during valued leisure times.
Benefits of a Fibreglass Swimming Pool Installation
Fibreglass pools are quick to install, easier to maintain than their concrete counterparts and still a very durable option. There are a range of other benefits to this type of material.
A fibreglass swimming pool makes an ideal choice for home-owners who are deterred by high maintenance. The lining of such pools provides a smoother surface than other materials. The benefit of a smooth surface is that dirt and algae do not settle into a porous material. All you need to do is use your pool brush or a pool creepy crawly to sweep the algae off the sides. Fibreglass, unlike concrete pools, offer a smooth floor and you can install a salt-chlorinator to decrease your maintenance costs further.
The ease of the installation is another benefit. We dig the hole to the required size of the pool. Then, we lower the shell of the pool into the excavation before we plumb it in, after which we add soil to fill up any empty spaces. This process can be accomplished during most weather conditions, unlike when using other materials such as a vinyl pool liner or concrete. As there is less labour involved in our fibreglass pool installation, the cost may be pleasantly low compared with a concrete pool installation.

Our fiberglass pools are hard-wearing and long-lasting. The material used is not affected by either hot or cold temperatures. The finished pool should, therefore, remain in good condition for many years.
Tips For Planning a Fiberglass Inground Pool Installation
An in-ground swimming pool can increase your property’s value and more importantly provide your family with lots of enjoyment over the summer months. Here are some tips to bear in mind as you plan your new pool:
Consider your pool design carefully. With land parcels decreasing in size, space for a pool will need to be carefully considered. A popular choice is to have your pool installed at least 1000mm from the boundary line, to make the most of the area, while also adhering to local government regulations.
Do consider the quality of the pump, heater and filtration system that you decide to install. There are benefits to be had by installing quality equipment from day one. For instance, a salt-chlorinator can reduce the maintenance of the pool, keeping the pool bright and clean without significant maintenance from yourself.
REGULATIONS & COUNCIL
The various councils have different regulations relating to installing a pool. Besides the compliance certificate, there are some fundamental regulations applicable to the pool fence. The height of the enclosure must comply with specific regulations. The gate should close automatically and should open outwards. These are just a few of the requirements, it's always best to consult an expert to ensure you're compliant.
