Eco Friendly Pools
A fiberglass pool is the environmentally friendly choice!
Fiberglass pools are the perfect choice for people concerned about their pool’s environmental impact. Non-porous surfaces mean fewer chemicals are used on a regular basis and less cleaning is required, also resulting in reduced electricity usage. Automatic pool cleaners also clean more quickly and efficiently.
Fiberglass pools do not present a risk for leaching water, chemicals, and rust into ground water – unlike more traditional pools might. Fiberglass also acts as a natural insulator, meaning a significant reduction in the draw and operating costs associated with filters and heaters. Finally, since fiberglass pools do not require re-plastering, and there are no liners to replace, there will be less waste in our landfills.

BEST CHOICE | Fiberglass pools can be installed quicker than other pool types and are typically easier to maintain, making them the perfect choice for many homeowners.
Your new Fiberglass swimming pool comes directly from the manufacturer’s facility, ready for us to install. Even better, we can have you swimming in it within a week, while a concrete pool installation could have your backyard torn up for several months.
Our swimming pools have a smooth gelcoat finish that is non-abrasive. No sharp edges, no rough surface – and no scrapes on your skin.
A fiberglass gel coat finish will look great and typically require little or no maintenance because the smooth non-porous surface resists the formation of algae.
And that same smooth surface means that, assuming the pool pH remains the normal 7.2 to 7.6 range, you won’t have to worry about stains and discoloration.
Our pools exceed the standards for shell thickness and the tensile strength of Fiberglass means that the pool shell can handle earth movement by flexing instead of cracking.
Low Chemical Use
One of the misconceptions about pools is that they require constant monitoring and chemical treatments. A fiberglass surface is inert, so the water chemistry is easier to keep in balance. Minimal chemical use means more savings and less environmental impact. We also offer the environmentally safe alternative of a CL Free Ultra system to sanitize your pool.
Seeing is Believing
With our fiberglass pools, you get just what you see – the styles and sizes are molded to exact specifications and do not vary at all from your choice.
A variety of pool sanitation methods – chlorine, mineral systems, salt chlorination, chemical-free ionization systems, and more – work well with fiberglass swimming pools.
FIBERGLASS POOL FAQs
The installation time of a fiberglass pool depends on several factors, like weather, the builder’s schedule, and how extensive of a project you have. Many people think of their “pool” as the entire backyard where there pool is; however, the pool itself is the fiberglass shell. The time for completion of your entire backyard poolscape will depend on if you have a concrete patio, travertine, or pavers, as well as other items like outdoor kitchens and showers. Weather and scheduling permitting, most fiberglass pools can be installed in 1-3 weeks to a point where the patio can begin.
Absolutely NOT! While some fiberglass pool manufacturers may promote white pools, either because they don’t offer color, or to prevent fading, we LOVE making colored pools.

The color that you select for your pool will affect the pools overall appearance. While atmospheric conditions and cloud cover contribute to the color the water reflects, even a white pool looks light blue. Brown colors tend to have a greener, aqua-marine hue, and black pools have a deep lagoon appearance.
In addition to customer service and support, there are differences in how fiberglass pools are manufactured, both in technique and the raw materials that are used. At SwimUSA Fiberglass Pools, we use premium raw materials that are made in the USA and utilize a manufacturing process that we believe is second to none.
There is less work in maintaining your fiberglass pool than you might think and it’s certainly easier than caring for your yard or your car.
At SwimUSA Fiberglass Pools, we want you to have your own backyard getaway and it is easier than you think! We offer a range of pricing options and you control the scope and cost of the project with your choices on everything from the type of pool to the materials and the landscaping. Not to mention the savings on things like travel and pool memberships when you can walk out your own backdoor to a relaxing oasis of your own! A pool is an investment, not just in your home, but in your physical health and your family.
Fiberglass Pool Myths:
People occasionally express concern about a common myth associated with Fiberglass pools. The idea that a fiberglass pool with 80 tons of water in it will “pop” or “float” is an idea promoted by those selling gunite or vinyl-liner pools. The reality is that any watertight pool can shift if there is an imbalance in pressure – that is, if there is more water under it than in it. As a result, all pools – fiberglass, gunite, or vinyl-liner – are at risk of floating when they are drained and the water pressure under them is no longer kept in balance.
This is where fiberglass has an advantage! Gunite pools are drained frequently for repairs and cleanings, while vinyl-liner pools can require draining to repair or replace liners. Fiberglass pools never need resurfacing and come with lifetime warranties, so they never need to be in the vulnerable position of being empty.
If there are legitimate concerns about water levels below a pool, there are a number of solutions, including having a drain installed to monitor and drain excess water, so water levels beneath a pool should never need to result in damage.
Pet Friendly Pools
You are not the only one who will love your new pool – chances are your dog will too! Plenty of add-on features will help accommodate your furry friends, from ramps that improve accessibility to tanning shelves that provide cool resting places to pool-side umbrellas for shade. Below are some of the common pet-related questions we receive, but if you have additional questions, contact us and ask us how to help include your family’s best friend in your new backyard lifestyle
What pool works best for dogs?
Fiberglass is the right choice for your pet! Vinyl-liner pools are easily damaged and concrete pools can be abrasive to a dog’s paw pads. Just make sure you allow for a design with easy entrance and exit points!
What chemicals are safest for my dog?
We recommend the CL Free Ultra pool system, a purification and ionization system that means you can treat your pool without chlorine, minerals, salt, or other harsh chemicals. It is important to remember that your dog will likely be ingesting more pool water than you might imagine. Salt and chlorine can also really dry out and irritate their skin and sensitive paw pads, so with a CL Free Ultra pool system, you know your dog will be enjoying your pool just as much as you!
Peroxide and Pristine Blue (another non-chlorine sanitizer) are also healthy choices for both humans and pets.
What filter system should I use?
Dogs can have a major impact on the filters in your pool, with dander, fur, and bacteria finding their way into the water. If your dog is swimming regularly, it is important to treat and maintain your pool accordingly. We recommend a high efficiency filtration system from Pentair to keep those extra impurities at bay.
