Buying a house with a pool is exciting, even if the pool has seen better days. If you have a property with an old pool that needs some maintenance, talk with a local pool contractor about having a fiberglass liner installed.
You can have the fiberglass liner installed instead of dealing with changing the liner, or without having to remove or demolish the existing pool. Here are a few reasons why fiberglass is going to benefit you and be a great investment.
A fiberglass pool can be created, delivered and installed in just days, usually within a couple of weeks after the order. A pool contractor will come to the home and take the measurements for the size of the fiberglass liner, and the dimensions are sent to the manufacturer. The manufacturer will ship the liner as soon as it's completed, and then pool contractor installs in within the existing pool frame.
The fiberglass isn't porous so it's not going to absorb bacteria that get into the pool, and it's not going to develop algae on the walls. You don't have to worry about buying as many chemicals when the pool isn't porous, and the smooth pool liner is easy to clean. The fiberglass is going to be flexible, so it isn't going to crack like concrete, and you don't have tears like with a vinyl liner.
The fiberglass pool can be installed for a much lower cost than a concrete pool, but you're still getting a high quality pool for the investment. Contractors will give you an estimate based on the amount of preparations that are needed to put the pool in, the model of pool you choose, and maybe when you have the pool put in. Try to have it done in the off season to save money.
If you have an old vinyl liner that needs demolished or you have an old concrete pool and you are looking for a quick and affordable fix to your problems, you should call a pool contractor to see if you can have a new fiberglass liner put in. This can prevent having to pay a company to remove all of the old components of the existing pool, which would save a lot of money.
