Most Frequently Asked Pool Questions

There are many things that contribute to the cost of your fibreglass pool, such as the shape, size and design that you choose, potential fees for council permits, and if there is any existing structures or trees that need to be removed prior to commencing installation. The most accurate way to find out how much your Fibreglass Pool will cost, is by contacting our experienced staff for a free quote.

There are many positives to owning a fibreglass pool in comparison to other types, one being how quick they are to install, in general it takes approximately 2-4 weeks to install a fibreglass pool. Installing a concrete pool can take anywhere from 3-6 months. Other benefits include easier maintenance and flexibility when deciding whether you want chlorine or saltwater. A Fibreglass Pool is a durable and affordable option.

A Fibreglass Swimming Pool is constructed from a mould that is made in a factory. It is made from fiberglass. As a Fibreglass Pool is made from moulds, this may limit the selections you can make in comparison to concrete.

Fibreglass pools are made from a mould and are produced in a factory. We have a 10 point process involved in manufacturing. This includes, a gel coat, vinyl ester resin, polyester resin, woven roving, structural honeycomb, final layer, curing, pool mould extraction, next we remove the excess fiberglass by trimming it and lastly, we complete a quality assurance check.

For decades, concrete pools used to dominate the pool industry. Today, Fibreglass Pools are more commonly found in Australian homes. This is a direct result of shorter construction times and lower upkeep and costs to run the pool. Fibreglass Pools have increased in popularity due to their affordability and durability. Concrete tends to be far more expensive, with a concrete pool taking upwards of 6 months to install. A concrete pool is generally coarse and absorbent, this makes it susceptible to algae. Therefore, property owners spend more money on chemicals to kill the algae. Concrete pools also require higher doses of muriatic acid to lessen the PH level.

Pool owners purchase fibreglass pools not only for the fact they are appealing to look at and install, but because they extremely durable and last a very long time. Fibreglass pools last for far longer than concrete pools and maintain their beautiful appearance and structure for more than 30 years. Barrier Reef Pools Perth surpass the Australian and worldwide standard for thickness. Our fibreglass pools have a slight flex to prevent cracking. They are designed to withstand most earth movements.

If everything runs smoothly, your fiberglass pool can be installed in as little as 7 days. The average installation time varies from 7 days to 3 weeks. Some unforeseeable factors that may alter the installation process are, poor weather conditions, tedious permit approvals, or the backyard may have some unexpected surprises when digging.

Yes, this is something you might consider if you live in a cooler climate or want your pool to be warm enough to enjoy throughout the cooler winter months. There are 2 main types of heating solutions that you can use for your fibreglass pool. Either a solar powered model that uses the power of the sun to heat your pool or a heating model that use electricity. Both heating choices have pros and cons. Your experienced Barrier Reef Pools Perth team member can advise you on which heating solution is best for you and your pool.

Yes, you can have a fiberglass pool with saltwater. However, its important to know that the type of salt you use makes a significant difference. A saltwater pool requires high quality salt that has no impurities. Scaling or staining can occur on your fiberglass pool if an inferior quality salt is used. It may even shorten the longevity of your pool equipment too.

Your new fiberglass pool can certainly have added features such as water slide, however Barrier Reef Pools do not sell them.

Both! All of our range is available in both above ground and in ground. An above ground pool is an affordable option when installing a pool. Some benefits include; a fast installation process, no need to excavate, this will save money and time. An above ground pool can also be installed to go perfectly in an existing timber deck or balcony. Our experienced team can help you decide which pool option is right for you and your home.

Most of us enjoy being outside making the most of our beautiful climate. For many people having a pool of their very own, improves their lifestyle dramatically. It provides a sanctuary that can be used to have fun in, relax and spend quality time with family and friends or even improve your fitness. A pool is something that can be enjoyed for many generations, creating lifelong memories. With a bit of research, a pool can add significant value to your home too.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Hi Avril When our pool was installed one of the three lights in the pool was playing up (from memory it didn't work). It's the one on the far left looking out at the pool from the house Apologies but I cannot recall his name, possibly Mark, came and had a look and got it going (chap with possibly an English accent?)

Richard and Melissa Smith

We have just had installed a 10.4m Majestic in Ocean Shimmer and I wanted to let you know that we are very happy with our new pool. We haven’t quite had it handed over to us yet – but “Her majesty” as we have decided to name her looks magnificent. (We have 5 lights too – wow they look amazing at night).
