FAQ

Helpful Information

WHY FIBERGLASS OVER CONCRETE

Quick Fiberglass Pool Installation 
Fiberglass pools are highly durable and very efficient to install. Because they’re pre-engineered, the entire installation process can be completed quickly. Once your fiberglass pool is delivered to your home, you can start enjoying your new pool in as little as three days.
When comparing fiberglass pools vs concrete (gunite) pools can take approximately three to six months to install. Fiberglass is factory-made while concrete pools need to be poured on-site, which can not only increase time to complete, but keep your yard in disarray for a much longer period of time. One of the most time consuming parts of the concrete process is that it requires between 28 to 30 days for the material to cure.

FIBERGLASS POOLS: SIZE, SHAPE AND CUSTOMIZATIONS

Fiberglass offers homeowners a wide variety of pre-engineered options that are perfect for any backyard need or aesthetic, including:

  • Customizable Add-Ons: Can add features to customize, including tanning ledges, bubblers and LED lights.

  • Sizes: Available in a wide variety of pre-engineered sizes, comparable to options for vinyl liner pools:

    • Small pools: 12 x 25 feet

    • Medium pools: 14 x 30 feet

    • Large pools: 16 x 41 feet

  • Shape Options: Available in a variety of shapes, including:

    • Rectangular

    • Kidney-shaped

    • Free form

  • Salt Water Compatible: Fiberglass pools are exceptional for salt water systems because there is no corrosion. In comparison, the porosity of concrete pools makes them ill-suited for salt water systems.

COST CONSIDERATIONS FOR YOUR FIBERGLASS POOL EXPERIENCE

In order to make the dream of a gorgeous new pool a reality, it pays to explore your options. Some considerations when budgeting for a fiberglass pool include:

  • The size and shape of the pool

  • Fiberglass pool add-ons, such as coping, railing, retaining walls, steps and water features

  • Landscaping work to prepare your backyard for fiberglass pool installation

  • Installation time, which can be influenced by things like geographic location and the layout of your landscape

Backyard Requirements 

If a builder hits rock while digging for a pool, this can increase the cost, or in some cases, you may need to change the location of your pool. Is your backyard sloped or mostly flat? If your property is on a hill, you may need to have a landscaper reshape the area or build a retaining wall to prevent your pool from sliding in the ground. The wall will also help to keep dirt and debris from sliding

into the pool. Discussing these and pool planning can save you time in the long run and mitigate hidden costs.


Did you know that there needs to be a certain amount of space between your pool and your property? Most cities, towns and townships also require pool owners to add additional safety features, such as a fence to prevent people from using your pool without supervision, as well as an alarm system. To understand the specifics of fence height and other safety features, your best bet is to check with your Home Owner’s Authority before you start the pool planning process. Also, make sure to determine the type of material you’re permitted to use in your area so you can make these decisions before deciding on any coping, railing or decking material.

Personal Preference & Features 

Custom Fiberglass Pool Water Features: Beyond the basics like steps and railings that allow for easy entry into your pool, do you want to add water features like a fountain or bubbler? If so, you may need to run an additional water line in your backyard.

LED Lighting: If you plan to use your pool at night or want to turn your backyard into the ultimate nighttime hotspot, you may want to include some pool LED lights. If you plan to install lights, you may need an additional power source or you’ll have to determine with an electrician how this will work with your current setup.

Custom Coping and Decking: The standard options may add an additional cost to your starting price, but there are also some other options you may want to consider like cantilevered coping that extends around the perimeter of your pool. You want to make sure your pool and decking design fits into the overall aesthetic you want to create in your backyard, but make sure you understand how this can affect the price of your fiberglass pool.

Electrical Needs

Pools require electricity for the following functions:

  • A pool pump and filter

  • Pool heater (if you want to heat your pool without solar panels)

  • Hot tub or spillover spa

  • Salt water chlorinator (optional)

  • Automatic safety cover (optional)

Before you get too deep in the pool-planning process, contact an electrician to help you determine if your current electrical service is adequate to support these new systems. Some pool builders run the plumbing over to the house, while some builders use the existing electrical system.

The location of your electrical panel is also a consideration. Some builders like to have it close by so it’s accessible for the pool. This may mean you need to install a subpanel near the pool. A licensed electrician can help you determine the safest, most cost-effective solution to power your pool and all its systems.

HOW LONG DO FIBERGLASS POOLS LAST?

  • Durable: Fiberglass pools can last the lifetime of the home it’s installed in. To put things in perspective, there are fiberglass pools still in the ground that were put in during the 60’s!

  • Low-Maintenance: Minimal time commitment for maintenance. Engineered and built for fade, offering the most durable surface colors. The smooth, durable finish also makes fiberglass easier to clean and control algae growth.

  • Low Cost-of-Maintenance: No costly upkeep expenses, such as the acid washing and resurfacing needed to maintain concrete pools. Fiberglass pools also require 30% less chlorine than other pool types to keep clean. In comparison, the 10-year maintenance cost of a concrete pool ranges between $15,000 to $27,000—more expensive than both fiberglass and vinyl liner pools.

HOW MUCH DOES AN AUTOMATIC POOL COVER COST?

The price range for an autocover can vary based on your overall pool design and the customizations you choose. An automatic safety cover can start as low as $10,000 for a small, aftermarket deck install or a basic under track setup. For a larger pool with more complex features, a safety cover can cost upwards of $20,000.

Automatic pool cover: $10,000 – $20,000

Note: This range is a basic estimate, exact pricing will vary.

With endless possibilities to choose from, additional custom features may increase the cost of an automatic pool cover above $20,000.

Automatic safety covers require professional installation and a licensed electrician to set everything up correctly. A qualified professional can help you determine switch placement and electrical configurations. This will also allow you to determine if you already have the proper setup to incorporate an autocover or if you will need to install any additional wiring or power sources.

The Benefits of a Pool Safety Cover are Priceless

The peace of mind that your loved ones are safe is worth more than even the most expensive pool cover, but Coverstar automatic safety covers also offer cost-saving benefits for pool owners.

By the numbers, an automatic pool cover offers the following savings and maintenance benefits:

  • Up to 90% reduction in water evaporation

  • Up to 70% reduction in pool heating costs

  • Up to 50% reduction in electricity costs

  • Up to 70% reduction in chemical use

A safety cover may seem like a significant investment, but it’s a sound investment in the safety and longevity of your pool.
