We understand purchasing a pool is a big decision. You have questions and that’s natural.
Below, you’ll find answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.
Why Choose a Fiberglass Pool?
Associated costs of owning a Fiberglass pool are much less than either concrete or vinyl pools. Electricity usage is typically 25 to 30 percent less. Maintenance chemicals are also cut by almost 60 percent. Add those figures up over the lifetime of a pool and you will quickly see what you will be saving on your pool budget every year.
Concrete or Gunite pools can be a nightmare with fluctuating temperatures and seasonal stresses. Costly acid washing and plaster repair will turn a beautiful pool into a money pit over time.
Vinyl-lined pools on average need regular replacement of their vinyl liner every 5 to 7 years. What initially seemed like an inexpensive choice has become a regular cost every few years with no end in sight.
Fiberglass is the natural choice for all seasons and climates. Using a composite flexible material that adapts to the changing seasons, fiberglass construction is far superior. Fiberglass pools offer 14 times the flexural strength of concrete pools. Fiberglass pools also inhibit the growth of algae far better than concrete and vinyl. Smaller algae growth equals less time cleaning and more time enjoying your pool. Fiberglass pools generally take less time (weeks versus months) to install than other types of inground pools. This means you can start enjoying your pool faster.
How Much Does a Fiberglass Pool Cost to Install?
Great question but it’s a difficult one to answer because costs for an inground pool are next to impossible to estimate without seeing the installation site.
The first thing to do is talk with an Authorized Alaglas Dealer about your specific site, determine what you want, what you need and what your budget is. That said, we’ll do our best to give you a general idea of reasonable swimming pool installation costs. This estimate can only be used as a general guideline because each pool installation will be different.
A general rule for figuring pool installation cost is $1,200-$1,500 per linear foot (length) of the pool. For example, a 14’ x 28’ fiberglass pool model is 28 feet in length. Multiply that by the $1,200-$1,500 per linear foot and you have a ballpark range of $33,500-$42,500 for a basic installation. While this formula can help you determine which Alaglas Pool model fits within your budget, accessories like automatic safety covers, pool heaters, water features, automation, and salt systems are all items that will increase your pool estimate.
