Fiberglass Pools vs Vinyl Liners

In Pennsylvania, primarily all inground pools are either vinyl liners or fiberglass. The advantages of a fiberglass pool over a liner pool are vast. Fiberglass pools are more structurally sound and durable with an impermeable finish that repels the growth of algae and bacteria. Fiberglass also acts as a natural insulator.

When you choose a liner pool, you are in for a lifetime of liner replacements, higher energy bills and chemical usage. With a liner pool, you are essentially swimming in a bag in the ground. Most pool builders began doing liner pools, but are now offering fiberglass. Large fiberglass pool manufacturers cannot keep up with the demand and there is a reason. Pool builders that have not switched to fiberglass pools will try and tell their customers that fiberglass pools are not suitable for our area, but this is simply not true. The only advantage of a liner pool is that it can be designed in any shape or size. Overall cost benefits are made up over time not having to replace liners. We have replaced hundreds of liners and the price goes up every year. You can view our current fiberglass models.
