A friend recently shared with us the unfortunate experience they'd had with a vinyl pool, and it reminded us why we do what we do, and why we're so passionate about providing our families and friends with fiberglass pools. They truly are superior!
“My family used to have a vinyl pool, and it was fine, until the lining tore. Water was leaking out everywhere. It was in the ground, everywhere. And the worst part was, we kept having to fill it up with a hose whenever we wanted to use it. And this whole nightmare was because of one, small torn crack in the liner. One crack!”
This was a story shared with us recently from a friend and previous owner of a vinyl pool.
“The next time I get a pool,” he went on to say, “I’d really just want to make sure that the materials used are really durable. I don’t want to deal with that again.”
Wow. Our hearts went out to him, to say the least. A pool is an investment and is a great way to bring family and friends together. Sure, any pool will require minor maintenance from time-to-time, but the experience this individual had with vinyl pools? Well, that’s absolutely unacceptable.
And thankfully, it's an experience that fiberglass pool owners never have to endure. In fact, unlike vinyl pools, fiberglass pools don’t require liner replacements, and unlike concrete pools, fiberglass pools don’t need to be resurfaced.
Fiberglass pools are designed to do more than look great (although with our finishes and color options, Alaglas pools certainly do look good!) The strong fiberglass shell won’t tear or rip and is literally designed to work with the natural movements of the earth.
Ultimately, when compared to other pools, fiberglass pools offer a much lower lifetime cost and an even better resale value for individuals who plan to move in the future.
We wanted to share this with you because it’s experiences like the one above with the vinyl liners that remind us why we do what we do, and why all of our dealers are so passionate about the fiberglass pools we provide.
