Fibreglass Lap Pools

Fibreglass Lap Pools. What are they?

These aren’t your everyday leisure pools, although you can utilise them for such. Fibreglass lap pools are designed for athletes looking to train for their next event, for those that want to practice laps and increase their fitness. If you don’t feel like swimming, lap pools are perfect for walking through, against the body of water.

Fibreglass lap pools are also formed in the same way as all of our other pools, see the structural layers below:

Layer 1: Interior Surface Finish

Layer 2: Anti-Corrosion Barrier

Layer 3: First Structural and Additional Chemical Resistant Layer

Layer 4: Second Structural Layer

Layer 5: Reinforcement Layer

Layer 6: Outer Core Laminate

Layer 7: Outer Sealer Coat

This process ensures that all our lap pools are structurally sound and of the highest quality so you can get to training!

What is the process for installing a lap pool?

How a lap pool installation process differs from a normal pool, is how the depth remains the same. Unlike our family or leisure pools, which have a shallow end and a deep end, our fibreglass lap pools are intricately designed to suit even the most avid swimmer.

Our process for our pool construction has these layers in more depth. Plus, the installation process for lap pools is not as difficult as you might think (we try to have your lap pool installed in as little as seven days).

First, one of our experienced pool dealers will visit your home and evaluate the initial lap pool positioning – as well as talk you through the process. A template of the lap pool will be sprayed on the ground as a guideline for a measurer to check up against the house and other boundary structures such as your patio or the fence. After making sure you are 100% happy with the positioning of your lap pool, we’ll send an excavator in to begin digging out the lap pool hole.

After the pool hole is dug and the excavated materials are taken from the site, we’ll spread base material over the base to set the right height for the pool to be placed in position. A crane will be positioned near your house. If there is no space on the side, the crane will most likely be set up on the street side, with the pool being lifted over the roof. The pool will be lowered into the right position, guided by our experienced pool builders. The crane will leave after making sure the final position of the pool is even and perfect, leaving the team to check the swimming pool shell levels.

The swimming pool pipes, filters and lights are connected to the pool and backfilling the pool with water begins. In some cases, your pool installation team will have pavers/tiles and lay them down for you (perfectly level, of course). After all the final checks are done, your pool installation team will give you a detailed handover of your new fibreglass lap pool and you’ll be all set to start swimming for your next event or competition!

What are the benefits of a lap pool?

Aside from lap pools offering both a swimming pool and an exercise outlet, lap pools have numerous other benefits: 

  • Slim and narrow shape for backyards: This means flexibility on space for big and small backyards.
  • Dual use as an entertaining space and for fitness
  • Privacy for when you want to have a casual swim
  • Perfect for hydrotherapy

How much do fibreglass lap pools cost?

As fibreglass lap pools are typically long and rectangular in nature, these pools tend to be cheaper than more complex looking inground fibreglass pools. However, the landscaping around the lap pool can easily increase the cost of how you want your backyard to look with the pool. Usually, setting down pavers and tiles around the lap pool is a simple way to showcase the new addition, and to make getting to and from the pool easy if all you’re using it for is training or exercise.
