Common Types of Pools

Fibreglass pools

Fibreglass pools are one of the most popular types of pools built in Australia, as it offers an attractive look without compromising on lifespan. Though they cost more than a concrete pool, fibreglass pools require considerably less maintenance. Notable benefits of fibreglass swimming pool construction include:

Fast installation

Fibreglass pools are the quickest inground pools for a swimming pool builder to install, with a rough turnaround time of 1 – 3 weeks. This is because the shell of the pool is manufactured off-site and simply requires an area of the earth to be removed for installation.

Low maintenance

The surface of a fibreglass pool (Gelcoat) is fairly non-porous, which makes it difficult for debris and algae to attach to. This also means that a homeowner doesn’t have to use as many chemicals to keep their fibreglass pool clean. Maintenance wise, you can expect to pay thousands less than concrete pools over the span of your fibreglass pool’s lifetime.

Concrete pools

Concrete pools are one of the most affordable options on the market and can be made to fit any size – which is perfect if you want a large family pool. A concrete pool is also extremely durable and allows a lot of freedom when it comes to choosing various depths and shapes. Benefits of concrete swimming pool construction include:

Highly durable

With a concrete pool, you’ll never have to worry about the insides becoming scratched and damaged. In fact, concrete pools are likely to last longer than any other kind of pool.

Visually appealing

As concrete pools offer the most design options, they can seamlessly blend into any kind of landscape. They work well for unusually shaped yards, where a fiberglass or vinyl model can’t fit. If you’re not sure which type of pool is best for your backyard, consult with one of our concrete pool builders for more information.

Vinyl liner pools

Vinyl liner pools are extremely durable and are characterised by their eye-catching patterns. Made with a non-porous material, these pre-engineered casts offer low maintenance and fast installation time and are one of the most cost-effective options on the market. Notable benefits of vinyl liner swimming pool construction include:

Easy to clean

Due to the non-porous surface, vinyl liner pools are incredibly easy to look after. This type of surface makes it hard for debris or algae to attach to and doesn’t scratch easily either. A well-maintained vinyl liner can last for approximately ten years before it needs to be replaced.

Smooth to touch

Unlike concrete pools which have a rough surface, vinyl liners are incredibly smooth to the touch. This ideal for families with young children, as the surface, won’t cause any cuts or scratches.
