If you are considering adding an inground fiberglass pool to your backyard, make sure you’ve done your homework using our fiberglass pool considerations checklist.  At Latham Pool Products, we want you to feel confident in your decision. We’ll partner with you during every step in the planning process to make sure you have given thought to all fiberglass pool considerations like your pool’s shape, color, water features, cost, safety, and more.

Given the elegant atmosphere they afford your home, inground fiberglass pools are surprisingly affordable. The final pool cost will be based on several factors, but the size and add-ons have the most significant influence. The larger the pool, the more materials will be required to build it; add-on water features like tanning ledges, lighting, and fountains will also add to the cost. Latham’s dealer network will work with you to ensure that your pool hits all the right notes but also stays within your fiberglass pool budget.

Fiberglass Pool Financing

If you cannot afford the total cost for your pool, we can provide you financing information via our partners, or you can opt for external financing from a financial institution. To help you decide which option is best for you, take a look at our fiberglass pool financing e-book.

The timeline for building a fiberglass pool varies, depending on how long it takes you to decide which shape and color you’d prefer and also options you’d like to include. Once the design has been finalized, installation generally requires about one to two weeks, though some can be completed in as little as three or four days.

Pool safety is of paramount importance and should not be taken lightly. Prior to installation, homeowners should install a fence that is at least four feet tall and includes a self-closing and self-latching gate. Latham also offers additional safety features like pool surface alarms, child-safety barriers, railings, and safety covers. Always remember to practice safe and sensible pool use, especially when you have young children at home.

All pools require some degree of maintenance, though some types, such as fiberglass, are easier to maintain than others. To clean your pool properly, you’ll need tools and equipment like skimmers, sanitizers, pool pumps, pool filters, and pH testing kits for pools. Additionally, optional pool covers can help keep debris out of the water.

Diligent seasonal swimming pool maintenance can prevent or correct costly, unsightly, potentially harmful issues like discoloration, liner wrinkling, and bacteria stains.
