The History of Fiberglass Pools

Fiberglass pools hit the market in in the 1950’s, but it has been advances in the 1990’s and 2000’s that have boosted their popularity.

First, there was color and an increase in the variety of shapes. Now cantilevered concrete, ceramic tile, splash decks and spill-over spas have allowed customizing a fiberglass pool and making it the center feature of a beautiful backyard oasis. From 2005-2015, the fiberglass pool industry nearly tripled its share of the inground-pool market.

Today fiberglass pools are often the first choice or the only choice of homeowners. The fiberglass pool of today comes in a variety of colors to give you an option on the color of the water (well the water is still clear, but the color that the water appears), a finish that is guaranteed not to blister and a gelcoat that endures time.

There are a variety of shapes and sizes, from plunge pools (improperly named because they are too small for plunging) to large diving pools. Free-form and rectangular shapes are varied with steps, splash decks and even built-in spas. There is something for everyone!
