Why is Fibreglass Used for Swimming Pools?
Production of fibreglass plunge pools, lap pools, and full-size swimming pools is optimised. Fibreglass pools can be mass-produced from molds within a controlled factory environment. Concrete and plastic-lined inground plunge pools and lap pools are made on-site in an uncontrolled environment which can be delayed by weather and site complications. These complications often result in far higher inground pool construction costs.
Due to the lightweight construction of fibreglass, fibreglass pool suppliers can arrange delivery of pool shells to be delivered anywhere on light trucks, and even shipped overseas if required.
What is Fibreglass?
Fibreglass or fiberglass as it is spelt in the USA is an epoxy resin or polyester resin which has strands of glass fibre interlaced throughout. This fibre consists of silica and oxides which is really glass in itself and once interlaced into epoxy resins, the material gains the name: fibreglass.
It is this interlacing or interweaving in the resin that increases the strength of the epoxy. Fibreglass is strong yet lightweight and this combination of light weight and strength makes it perfectly suited for boats, sailing yachts, storage tanks, sand mining separators, aircraft parts, and car parts – both in motor racing and road cars, inground swimming pools, lap pools, and plunge pools.
Fibreglass is also known as ‘glass-reinforced plastic’ or GRP, and ‘glass-fibre reinforced plastic’ or GFRP. The glass fibres used in making fibreglass are high quality. The strength of the finished fibreglass relies on each individual glass fibre’s surfaces to be free of defects.
What is Fibreglass Used For?
Fibreglass is great for inground swimming pools, plunge pools, and lap pools. The flexibility in fibreglass pools prevents cracking under high-stress loads from water movement and soil movement. The fibreglass pool shell must be properly installed using correct dig profiles and bedding sand profiles. The waterproof pool surface of fibreglass is perfect for resisting penetration from chemicals and UV rays. Resins can easily be coloured and textured to create a large variety of surface types, pool colours and pool water colours.
When Was Fibreglass Developed?
Fibreglass is commonly used in manufacturing all kinds of products, but in the 1930s the product wasn’t yet discovered. In 1932, research into reinforcing plastics was intensive and it was only during this year that mass production of glass strands was discovered by accident. Researcher at Owens-Illinois directed a jet of compressed air at a stream of molten glass which instantly created thin glass fibres. Owens merged with the Corning company in 1935 when Owens Corning adapted the same procedure to produce a patent for “Fiberglas” (with a single ‘s’). du Pont researched resins to find a solution compatible with “Fiberglas” and was finally developed in 1936.
Fibreglass quickly replaced plywoods used in aircraft and boating applications and by the 1950s the new material became useful in motor racing and car parts due to the ability to mold into any shape with lightness and strength. Throughout the decades, resins and techniques have been developed to resist UV rays, chemical penetration and even waterproofing techniques. Fibreglass is now one of the most resilient and durable structural materials available. While carbon fibre is now superior in strength, fibreglass is best suited for normal applications due to it’s economical cost of materials and ease of production. Carbon fibre is used in more advanced applications like Formula One racing and aircraft.
Is the Installation Process Tough?
Pool installation is faster with a fibreglass pool. The hole is excavated, levelling and sand basing is implemented, and soon the pool can be craned directly into the hole. Filling of pool water can begin immediately, while pool filtration, wiring and fitting of lighting, and backfilling of the pool walls takes place. In only a few days, the pool is ready for a cooling plunge. A concrete beam is poured to seal the soil around the fibreglass pool edges, which also gives a solid base for pavers and poolside tables and seating. Paving and landscaping is next and you now have a perfect setting for a pool BBQ, poolside party, or drift about on an airbed.
