Concrete or Fibreglass Pool?

Are you considering a pool and not sure if you want a concrete or a fibreglass pool? The concrete vs fibreglass pools discussion is here almost forever. Perhaps the most apparent advantage of concrete pools is their shape flexibility. You can achieve non-traditional pool looks with concrete and make your pool totally unique. On the other hand, a concrete pool takes a longer time to build and has some other drawbacks too.

Fibreglass Pools are Flexible

With our technologies, you can have a fibreglass pool build almost anywhere. Difficult terrain does not pose a problem, neither a block with difficult access. You can also customise your new fibreglass pool so it is completely unique. Do so by adding a spa to the pool, consider a beach area or a wader. Plus, unique water features will make your pool unforgettable for your visitors. We at Compass believe that a fibreglass pool is the pool of the future and has many advantages for our customers. Learn more about both technologies so you can make your own decision.

Fibreglass Swimming Pools Versus Concrete Pools

We’re often asked, what is the difference between a concrete and fibreglass pool? That’s a great question. The one tremendous advantage that concrete has over fibreglass is that you can shape that concrete pool any way you want to shape it. If you want to go round a right hand bend in your yard or so forth, then you can certainly do it. But if there’s a Compass shape that appeals to you, that you certainly think is going to suit your backyard, then the benefits of a fibreglass pool over a concrete pool seriously stack up on the fibreglass side.

Generally fibreglass pools are much quicker and easier to install. This cuts down on both the build time and sometimes some of the associated costs that are unforeseen in relation to concrete pools. This is because of the nature of the job and the fact it is an ongoing building process.
