One of the first decisions to make when choosing a pool is the type of pool. There are three main kinds of pools: Fibreglass, vinyl liner and concrete. In a past blog post, we explored the differences between fibreglass and vinyl liner pools, so in this post, we’ll compare fibreglass and concrete.


A composite fibreglass swimming pool, like we produce at Leisure Pools, can be installed faster than a concrete pool because the shell of the pool is already made and delivered to your home for installation. A fibreglass pool can be installed in a matter of days whereas a concrete pool can take months. Keep in mind that while a swimming pool is being installed, your backyard will be in disorder and not very attractive, so a shorter installation period is ideal.


At Leisure Pools, we stand behind our durability and believe pools should last a lifetime. That’s why with our composite fibreglass pools we provide a lifetime structural warranty and our Composite Armour construction allows to offer a lifetime structural osmosis warranty. Also, Leisure Pools are made with high-performance vinyl ester resin, as opposed to polyester resin, making our pools stronger. We believe pool owners should have the peace of mind that their pool will remain strong and durable.


A fibreglass pool is easier to maintain. The reason is that a vinyl liner pool and concrete is porous, creating more algae to clean and require more chemicals. Also, it’s more difficult to maintain pH levels in a concrete pool because concrete increases the pH of the water. Leisure Pools gelcoat not only provides a beautiful range of colour options, but is also non-porous and doesn’t leach anything into the pool water, making it an easier swimming pool to maintain. It is also UV, blister and chemical resistant.


Everyone has their own tastes and preferences, so there is no definitive answer. However, at Leisure Pools we seek to design pools that are stunningly beautiful and will transform a homeowner’s backyard into a serene and gorgeous setting. We have pool design options to fit any aesthetic, from sleek and modern to soft, flowing curves–and our pools are packed with features. Our seven gelcoat colours allow homeowners to choose a colour that best fits the look and feel of their home and outdoor space.
