An Investment For Yourself And Your Family

You may have noticed we didn’t use the word purchase when we described installing a fibreglass pool earlier. That’s because we’re firm believers in the idea that as a potential pool owner, you’re not buying a pool: you’re investing in one for your home. Now, we know that might sound like a bunch of new-age salesman talk, but hear us out. 

You might buy yourself a bar of chocolate from the shops and notice that it’s gone rather quickly (we don’t blame you.) But when you invest in a pool, that fibreglass pool is going to last in your home for decades. Those decades are going to be filled with weekends spent splashing in the pool with your family, keeping healthy and increasing the property value of your home.

Noticing a trend? Installing a fibreglass pool is an investment because, over the many years of life, that pool is going to pay you back with plenty of benefits – divebombing on summer weekends is just one example!

  1. Resurfacing 
  2. Replacing vinyl liner 
  3. Acid washing

All of these can cause major financial problems for non-fibreglass pools. So, price-wise we think fibreglass pools have a distinct advantage.

This is in stark contrast to concrete pools, of which an installation can take upwards of 3 months. This might factor into your judgment because some pool owners simply cannot wait to get their hands on a pool.
