Fiberglass pools are known for having the quickest installation time at about 1-2 weeks. Fiberglass pools have a gel coating that makes them non-porous, which means which means they have a smooth feel while also making it harder for algae to build up. This makes the need for upkeep very minimal for the owner. Fiberglass pools are very durable, and they do not require replacements, like vinyl, nor do they need renovation, like gunite.
Fiberglass pools are known for having the quickest installation because they are fiberglass molds that are dropped into place when ready. Unfortunately, this means there is not much customization available, as the pools are made from a set of standard molds. If fiberglass pools are damaged, they can easily be patched, but the patch work may look different from the rest of your pool. Fiberglass pools also cannot exceed 16’ as it is not legal to transport any pool over this size.
