Inground Fibreglass Pools – From the Perspective of Homes & Hotels

November 9, 2023

In Australia, not just individual homes, small to midsize hotels have also shown considerable interest in installing the latest inground fibreglass swimming pools in their backyard. It is not that they did not have swimming pools installed. Simply, by replacing their existing Vinyl coated or concrete ‘above-the-ground’ ones, the premium/budget hotels wants to portray an upscale look to their global clientele and guests. Since their decade-old lap & plunge pools have become somewhat outdated in the present scenario, they are now thinking to upgrade. Therefore, the new, as well as existing hotel owners, are increasingly installing them in order to compete with the best names in the hospitality industry.

Today, the fibreglass lap pool series is of truly international standards that live up to the expectations of high-profile guests. And here in Australia, few renowned pool builders in Brisbane are coming up with the latest pool products and accessories in this exclusive domain, both for individual homes as well as hotels.

Fibreglass is the Choicest Pool Material in Australia

Ever since the introduction of this versatile, toughened and hard-wearing material, homes in Australia have either started replacing or installing completely new pools.

Fibreglass material has caught the attention of new homeowners for sure. And why not, when they have so many new properties and features that make them stand out. Starting from corrosion-resistant to antimicrobial properties, these inground pools require very less maintenance nowadays.

The glossy Gelcoat on the surface does not allow the formation of algae and moss, even after months of non-usage. This was quite a common phenomenon with concrete and vinyl liner pools. Though the initial installation cost of an inground pool might be a bit higher. Once installed, you won’t have to spend practically anything extra for at least 10-15 years. No, I’m not exaggerating.

Therefore, a lot of new homes are now installing these sleek rectangular-shaped lifestyle enhancement products in their backyard. Though, they are also available in round or jellybean shaped. But that is something rare in residences.

Mostly all pools are rectangular in shape, either with perfect right angle or rounded corners. And homes always look for small or standard size pools. Unlike the deluxe and star category hotels that install Olympic size inground fibreglass pools.

So, if you have a decent sized property, one such standard lap pool in pristine fibreglass material could well serve your purpose for a lifetime. Unless you own a hotel, there is no need to install a mega swimming pool which can cost you fortunes.

Such products are available in a myriad of dimensions, designs, and shapes. And you can choose one, depending upon your space availability and budget. These are the two important factors to consider, apart from the design and style.


Homes that have the necessary space can go for standard size lap pools. And fibreglass material should be the first choice. They are not only easy to install and lightweight but requires less maintenance compared to their predecessors.

Fibreglass is 100% safe for children, as this pool material has anti-allergic properties. Australian homes, villas, mansions, and country houses are going forward installing such versatile products before the onset of summers.

The pools not only help homes maintain an upscale lifestyle but at the same time ensures the best respite from the scorching summer sun. Even hotels can look forward to installing the latest products by replacing their old and outdated ones. This is indeed worth an investment for a lifetime.
