Fibreglass Swimming Pools — Your Questions Answered

Aug 13, 2020

A swimming pool is a wonderful addition to any property. It offers a wonderful space to relax, entertain, have fun, and exercise, and is enjoyable for children and adults of all ages. A swimming pool is also a big undertaking, and before jumping in you will likely have a few questions. In this article, we aim to address the most common queries, questions, and concerns we hear from clients. 

What sort of permissions or permits are required? 

As with most construction projects, there are rules and regulations with swimming pool construction. These must be adhered to and the project must be approved by the local planning authority. Narellan Pools’ local pool builders install swimming pools to the highest standards of safety and in full compliance with Building Code regulations, so you don’t have to worry about a thing—we handle it all, including the permit process. 

Can I use saltwater in a fibreglass swimming pool? 

Saltwater filtration systems are a great alternative to processed chlorine, offering a clean and healthy swimming experience that feels nice to swim in and has no chemical smell. Fibreglass swimming pools are fully compatible with saltwater filtration systems, though, do be mindful of the type of salt used. Ideally, you want to use salts with anti-stain and anti-scaling agents added to prevent build-up and staining on the pool shell. 

How long does the construction process take? 

Our fibreglass swimming pools are installed quickly, minimising disruption to you and your home. We follow a comprehensive five-step construction process to ensure everything is conducted with accuracy and precision. The entire design, consultation, approval, and installation process, can take between a few weeks and a few months depending on bookings and local authority approval times. Keep in mind that the longest part of the process is usually the design and approval stage. 

Can I view the designs beforehand? 

Narellan Pools has some local pool builders in its network with display centres. In addition to those displays, local Narellan pool builders can also arrange onsite visits to pools they have previously installed for clients that may match your design, size, and style preferences. This is a great way to let you experience what the pool looks like fully finished and give you ideas for additional landscaping.

How durable are fibreglass swimming pools? 

Fibreglass swimming pools from Narellan Pools are incredibly durable and hard-wearing. The high-quality shell offers just the right amount of flex to prevent cracks and damage for general usage and earth movement. In addition, our unique gel coating provides additional protection against UV damage. Narellan Pools provides a manufacturer’s Lifetime Structural Warranty on our inground pools, delivering peace of mind.

Our backyard has restricted access – will that be a problem? 

Our swimming pool shells come fully constructed from the factory ready to be installed into your property, so they do require a lot of space for maneuvering. Narellan Pools are experts at finding unique solutions when space is an issue— our pool builders have even utilised helicopters to lower pool shells into tight spaces before! Cranes are often used by our pool builders to get a pool shell into the right spot.
