Myth #1 – Fiberglass pools will float or pop-up out of the ground.
One of the more blatant myths spread about fiberglass pools, this just isn’t true. Most people that say this don’t fully understand the installation process in regards to fiberglass pools. A fiberglass pool is no more likely to pop out of the ground than a gunite or liner pool.
Myth #2 – Fiberglass pools are low quality.
If this were true, the manufacturer would not offer a lifetime warranty on their pools. Our manufacturers use multiple layers of 100% vinyl ester resin in their fiberglass pool construction, making it far less susceptible to osmosis (the bubbling of the walls associated with older fiberglass pools). Many other manufacturers only use one layer of vinyl ester resin.
The color options available these days provide a look comparable with the nicest finishes available on gunite or liner pools. Installed correctly, it's difficult to tell a pool is fiberglass unless you touch the smooth gel coat finish of the pool.
Myth #3 – You are limited to just the pool.
It’s common to see a fiberglass pool installed by The Pool Company as the centerpiece to a beautiful backyard. Additional features to enhance your personal oasis may include stamped concrete or hardscaped stone pavers for decking, shimmer colored pool finishes and lighting, water features, etc. With so many additional features to choose from, anyone can find a pool that fits with their budget and lifestyle desires.
Myth #4 – Fiberglass pools are expensive and costly to maintain.
Wrong again. There are three different categories of pools; fiberglass, vinyl liner and concrete. Compared to a vinyl liner pool of equal or similar size, it is true that the initial installation cost of the fiberglass pool will be more. However, over time, you will save more in maintenance and care with the fiberglass pool, making it a more affordable option in the long run.
A comparable concrete pool doesn’t come close to stacking up to a fiberglass pool, as the initial cost and continuing maintenance costs are both higher than a fiberglass pool AND the installation time is much longer.
