How Long do Fiberglass Pools Last

You’ll notice right away that quality fiberglass pools look very high-end. With their sleek aesthetic, ultra-modern designs, and striking colors they truly exude luxury. But does that elegant styling also translate into durability? It’s an important question. After all, who wants to invest in the pool of their dreams, only to have it fall apart a few years down the road? So, if you’ve been wondering, “How long do fiberglass pools last?” we’re here to tell you. 


A Pool That Lasts a Lifetime

When you buy a fiberglass pool from Orange County Pools & Spas, you’re buying a pool that lasts a lifetime. Well, maybe not an entire lifetime, but close! Most fiberglass pools are known to last 25-30 years, but we take that to the next level. Our manufacturer, Narellan Pools, makes the best fiberglass pools around. Their unique fiberglass formula results in a pool that can last as long as 50 years!

Plus, these pools are notoriously easy to maintain. They don’t have a liner that has to be replaced every few years or seams that algae can grow in. So, even though the cost may be a bit more upfront, it will be a money and time saver in the long run.


How Does This Compare to Vinyl Pools?

Vinyl pools are some of the most common pools because they are affordable. The basic structure of vinyl pools can last up to 30 years. But, unlike fiberglass and concrete pools, there are two parts that make up a vinyl pool: the structure and the liner. The vinyl liner portion has to be replaced about every 10 years. 

In vinyl pools, the chemicals, algae, and debris take a greater toll on the liner than they do on the surface of a fiberglass pool. So even though vinyl pools are cheaper than fiberglass upfront, that savings is offset by the additional upkeep.


What About Concrete Pools?

Concrete pools are easily the most pricey out of the three pool options. Like fiberglass pools, concrete pools can last around 50 years. But, they require a lot more upkeep. It’s easier for algae to grow in the rough texture of your concrete pool than on the sleek surface of a fiberglass pool. Plus, you’ll have to get it resurfaced about every 5 years, increasing the overall amount you spend on the pool. So, concrete pools are best for individuals who want a custom shape and don’t mind the regular resurfacing.

So, now you know how long fiberglass pools last and how they compare to vinyl and concrete. While all three types of pools have their perks, fiberglass pools are long-lasting with the least amount of upkeep. Instead of having to replace a vinyl liner every 10 years or resurface a concrete pool every 5 years, with proper care, your fiberglass pool will pretty much stay in the same condition for all 50+ years you own it.
