Memphis Fiberglass Pools FAQs

It takes years of experience and proven methods for a Memphis pool builder to know which pool type will not only suit your vision and budget, but also provide a long-lasting focal point for your outdoor area. With a commitment to only offer the highest quality pool services, we always choose gunite or vinyl liner pool installations over fiberglass. Through years of designing, building, and maintaining inground pools, we have gained first-hand experience in pool functionality and durability, as well as how to choose the right pool for each backyard design.
Is a fiberglass pool a cheaper option for new pool installation?

Fiberglass pool installation was once a more cost effective option for homeowners, but the cost of a sturdy shell and delivery fees has increased, putting it on par with gunite pools. When comparing installation costs, you should consider the unique features and style of each type of pool.

I understand that the cost of a fiberglass pool is about the same as gunite, but I still cannot afford to spend that much on a pool. A vinyl liner pool seems to be closer to my price point, but I’ve heard negative stories about damage in and around them.

There are yards that wouldn’t properly accommodate a vinyl liner pool, and this is why meeting with a company who will openly answer any and all of your questions is crucial to successful pool installation.  During our initial visit, we will inspect your yard for any potential concerns such as excessive slopes, grading issues, and low lying areas. Sometimes you may need additional structural protection around the pool, and underneath the plumbing, to withstand the build-up of pressure created from the pool. An underground gravity fed hydrostatic system or automatic pump may be necessary to relive hydrostatic pressure created. These items are always considered for our vinyl liner projects, and will be brought to your attention and priced along with your initial design. If your yard simply cannot support a vinyl liner pool, we will advise you on a better option, even if it risks our likelihood of getting to build your project.

I heard fiberglass pool installation is much faster than gunite or vinyl liner?

This is mostly due to the prefabricated design process of fiberglass pools. Gunite pools do take longer to build, however, they are handcrafted by seasoned pool experts, highly skilled in pool design and functionality. American Pool Techs ensures the highest quality gunite and vinyl liner pool construction, and generally that will take longer than a standard fiberglass installation. The project timeframe for your custom pool installation will be discussed at your design consultation, and will vary depending on material availability, weather, and the unique specifications of your project.

The project timeframe for your custom pool installation will be discussed at your design consultation, and will vary depending on material availability, weather, and the unique specifications of your project. 

Since fiberglass pools are completed in less time, does this mean they receive more thorough supervision and quality control?

Not at all! Because gunite and vinyl liner pool installations require specific and controlled techniques, we have built a team focused on completing each phase of pool construction with the knowledge only acquired by years of trial and error. We understand the importance of ongoing function and upkeep of equipment. As a pool company who not only builds, but maintains swimming pools, we give each of our clients’ pools the same attentiveness and care, promising our level of service will always be unmatched.

Are there any advantages to installing a fiberglass pool instead of gunite?

Fiberglass shells are made with a non-porous gel coat finish, reducing algae growth and promoting chemical function.  While a gunite pool is finished with a blend of natural materials, pool maintenance can easily be taken care of with the right tools and practices.  Our team of Pool Technicians are some of the best in the business, with a wealth of pool knowledge in regards to water chemistry, equipment functionality, and the niche skillset of diagnosing and repairing pool equipment, plumbing, and layout concerns. Dedicated to ongoing education and partnered with trusted industry manufacturers, our Top Experts are well versed in gunite pool care, and can both educate homeowners and/or take care of the pool maintenance for you.

I read that repairing a gunite pool can be very costly, especially with the need of constant replastering?

Any pool of any type is going to require repairs, upgrades, and refinishing at some point.  For fiberglass pools, the shells easily crack creating excessive leaks and compromising the structural integrity of the pool and deck space.  Gunite pools will eventually need replastered, but the interior finish last much longer with proper water chemistry and regular brushing.  At American Pool Techs, we offer weekly pool cleaning services, ensuring a pool technician is not only giving your gunite pool the routine care it requires, but also inspecting the overall wellbeing of the pool and equipment pad to tackle small repairs before they turn into bigger problems.

I’m unsure of what pool shape would look best in my backyard, and am thinking a pre-designed fiberglass shell would be a good place to start.

The issue with selecting from pre-designed swimming pools is that they aren’t fully customized to your unique style and the way you plan to use your new pool.  You don’t want to take the step towards pool ownership and later regret missing out on a structural feature or custom amenity that would have been discussed during a personable design process.  We understand pool design can be overwhelming, and our staff is here to help!  After conducting a one-on-one consultation, our design team will come up with possible design options, reflecting the concepts we discussed.   We have years of experience navigating the varying details of pool design and installation, and promise to make it a stress-free experience as you embark on pool ownership.

I’m ready to create a backyard escape, designed to provide my family and friends with years of enjoyment. However, I’m still unsure of which pool type I should go with.

We completely understand your uncertainty and suggest scheduling a consultation with a member of our Pool Design team.  With proper guidance and clarification on what pool construction entails and how to create a cohesive pool layout, you will be much better equipped to decide on the perfect pool for you and your lifestyle.

I had American Pool Tech do a complete renovation of my pool in October of 2016. New coping, plaster, tile and stone. They had creative ideas for making my 20-year-old pool look new and they did a fabulous job. They showed up on time every day, cleaned up each day, and the workmanship is wonderful. We are extremely pleased and highly recommend them.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "We had been long time users of one of the more prominent pool companies in Memphis for many many years. After our neighbor used American Pool Techs last year we were so impressed that we decided to change to them.... The men who showed up to do the job were courteous, professional and most importantly very knowledgeable and answered all our questions , I would never go back to the other company, I am a American Pool Techs customer for life!! I would recommend them to anyone considering getting a pool, the prices were very reasonable and they have that small town work ethic where they make you feel like you matter. If I could give them 1 million stars I would. Thanks so much for doing such an excellent job." -Misty S. on Google (just one of our 54+ reviews on Google, avg rating 4.4) See more Google reviews of American Pool Techs - Memphis Pool Building & Pool Cleaning.
