One of the most appealing benefits of a fibreglass pool is the amazing range of shapes and sizes that are now available to choose from. Traditional kidney shaped pools are still around, but contemporary geometric designs have taken the lead, with the majority of current designs featuring clean lines and square edges to match today’s modern home designs.
Features such as long seating benches and large step entry areas are now common design elements that were traditionally only available in concrete pools.
There is also an impressive selection of surface finishes and colour options, along with significant advances in surface technology. Leading the way is the patented Pool ColourGuard® surface protection, which is backed by the world’s first Lifetime Interior Surface Guarantee. Offering pool colour that will not fade, it is like sunscreen for your fibreglass pool, protecting it from UV rays as well as the effects of chemicals and water. Developed by Hydrawall Pty Ltd, it is patented in 16 countries and is available exclusively in Western Australia through Aqua Technics, Buccaneer Swimming Pools and Sapphire Pools.
Fibreglass pools have the advantage of being very quick and easy to install. In most cases you can have the hole dug and pool installed in 1-2 days. This means other ancillary items and landscaping can also be completed in a shorter time frame.
In most cases, all that is required to correctly care for and maintain a fibreglass pool is to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines. Advances in the technology and automation of pool equipment make looking after your pool a lot easier and quicker than in the past.
