Why choose a fibreglass pool?

Fibreglass swimming pools are available now in so many shapes and sizes. Evoke Pools is proud to be in partnership with our manufacturing partners Masterbuilt Pools and Tranquility Pools, in doing so we have over 60 shapes and sizes to choose from.

Here’s 4 thing’s to consider when choosing between a concrete or fibreglass swimming pool.

1. Pool construction time.

Fibreglass 3 days v’s concrete 3 months!

2. Pool temperature and comfort.

How many times have your children come home from swimming in a friends concrete pool covered in grazes from the abrasive walls on the pools surface? This will never happen in a fibreglass pool as the gel coating provides a soft smooth surface that will never graze your skin. Water temperature in a concrete pool is always colder due to the porous nature of the concrete, fibreglass pools will always be warmer therefore reducing the cost of heating your pool.

3. Pool shape.

Yes , if you are after a unique shape for your pool then concrete will be able to provide that for you, however the more complex the shape, the more complex the engineering calculations etc. Most fibreglass moulds already have safety ledges, safety steps and entertainer seats incorporated, saving time and money.

4. Pool hygiene and bacteria.

Concrete being porous is definitely trickier to maintain the chemical balance in your pool, more chemicals are often needed to maintain the correct balance. Fibreglass swimming pools come with a gelcoat , this gelcoat limits bacteria growth, as they are non porous and are easier to maintain the chemical balance.
Which one should you choose – fibreglass or concrete?

The choice all comes down to your priorities and what matters to your family. Think about making a list that includes the following items :

  • time frame and impact the installation process will have on your family
  • purchase cost
  • installation costs
  • ongoing running costs ( include chemical maintenance, time maintenance and heating costs)
  • shape and style
  • swimming comfort ( feel of the pool’s surface and temperature)

Whether you and your family live in Byron Bay, Tweed region, Lismore region to the Casino region, Evoke Pools is here for you with a professional, value for money, no fuss approach to helping you create an inspirational pool scape that your family will love for many years to come.

Low-maintenance installations

Unlike other pool materials, such as concrete, fibreglass requires very little maintenance. The smooth surface of the gel coating is resistant to algae build-up and waterline marks, so you can rest assured that your pool will be looking sparkling clean for longer.

Adding frequent doses of chlorine and other pool chemicals should be sufficient to keep the pool hygienic and clean, but if you have any questions about how to keep your pool in great condition, don’t hesitate to ask our friendly team.

Frequently asked questions

Can fibreglass pools be heated?

Yes, they can. Fibreglass is designed as an insulator, so it’s an excellent material for retaining heat in your pool. Fibreglass pools also heat up faster than concrete or vinyl pools and can hold heat for much longer, keeping your energy bills at a minimum.

What kind of heating system can I use with my fibreglass pool?

When you’re choosing a pool heating system, it’s important to take several factors into account. This includes the climate of your local area, the size of the pool, how often you’re likely to use the pool and how much money you have to spend on it. Electric and gas heating systems are very efficient, but they can be expensive to run, while solar systems can be expensive to install but will save you money in the long run.

If you would like some tips and advice for heating your fibreglass pool, our team of experts will be happy to help.

Can you pressure wash a fibreglass pool?

Only pools constructed of concrete, plaster or exposed aggregate are strong enough to withstand the power exerted by a pressure washer. Fibreglass and vinyl pools are more fragile, so they need to be cleaned using non-abrasive methods and chemicals.

Can I install a fibreglass pool above ground?

High-quality fibreglass pools made by a reputable manufacturer can be installed above ground, inground or partially inground.

Can I add salt to my fibreglass pool?

Fibreglass pools are non-porous and smooth, so they are highly compatible with saltwater. However, it’s important to keep the area around your pool clear of any aluminium or metal fittings or furniture, as salt water can be corrosive. Every time you use your pool, it’s a good idea to rinse your deck with fresh water.
