When it comes to purchasing a swimming pool, the initial decision on the type of pool is crucial. This choice significantly impacts factors such as cost, maintenance, aesthetics, and longevity. In this comparison, we explore the benefits of fibreglass swimming pools over vinyl liner pools, highlighting the key considerations for your investment.


Fibreglass pools surpass vinyl liner pools in durability. While the structure of a vinyl liner pool may last a couple of decades, the liner itself requires replacement every five years or so. Leisure Pools ensures durability with high-performance vinyl ester resin, providing strength and offering industry-leading warranties: a lifetime structural warranty and a lifetime structural osmosis warranty.

Designs & Features:

Leisure Pools’ composite fibreglass pools offer a diverse range of designs, sizes, and styles, packed with features. Options include rectangular or freeform pools, built-in splash pads, built-in spas, and even swim jets. These features are not typically found in vinyl liner pools, showcasing the innovation in our manufacturing process.

Finish & Colour:

Both fibreglass and vinyl liners provide a smooth surface with different colour options. Leisure Pools goes a step further with a UV, blister, and chemical-resistant gelcoat finish, available in seven stunning fibreglass pool colour styles, complete with a built-in sparkle for a shimmering effect.

Chemicals & Maintenance:

Leisure Pools’ fibreglass surface is chemically inert, reducing the need for constant monitoring and expensive chemicals. This results in very low chemical usage and considerable cost savings in maintaining your pool.


A fibreglass swimming pool is not just a luxurious addition but also an investment that enhances your home value. Studies show it can increase your home value by approximately 7%. Additionally, the pool ensures a lifetime of worry-free maintenance, unlike vinyl liner pools that may not hold the same value for home buyers due to long-term costs and maintenance considerations.
