Fiberglass_Swimming_PoolIf you are thinking of installing a swimming pool in your backyard you probably have read about the three main options: Vinyl, concrete or fiberglass. After installing many different pools, the Albert Landscaping Group recommends the installation of a Fiberglass Pool with a smooth surface. Here is why:

Beautiful and Resistant
Fiberglass pools have become much more popular over the past ten years. While the first Fiberglass pools were only available in white and therefore not very attractive, Leisure Pools has now developed a new coating, which is available in a huge array of colors. The exclusive Aquaguard Gel Coat finishes are very resistant to chemicals, UV intensity and weathering. That means: The color won’t fade and provide a unique sparkly finish to your inground swimming pool.

Non slipplery
Since many pool owners do not want to install handrails and ladders for aesthetic reasons, you might be concerned, that the fiberglass surface might be too slippery. Leisure Pools provides a non-slip surface on all the pool and spa bottoms, seats and steps. The non-slip surface is barely visible and does not take away from the sparkly color of the Aquaguard finish. Another benefit of the fiberglass surface is, that you feet won’t get concrete-burn, when spending a lot of time in the swimming pool.

Fiberglass swimming pools are also a great option for dog owners. The surface is very durable and the finish works very well with salt chlorine generators, providing a constant low level of natural chlorine, which is not harsh on the dogs skin. Just make sure, to plan a good entry point for your dog, for example choose wider steps with a non-slip surface.

Last but not least, fiberglass swimming pools today come in many different shapes and sizes. Check out our Swimming Pool Style section to choose the right pool for your backyard.
