Does a fiberglass pool “pop out” of the ground?
NO! Engineers will tell you that it is impossible for any pool to “pop
out” of the ground when it is full of water. However, just like any pool
… gunite, vinyl liner or fiberglass … lowering of the water level below
recommendations will result in an uneven pressure and possibly result in
Why a fiberglass pool?
We’ll let Money Magazine answer this one. An article on swimming pools
stated that “one piece fiberglass pools are easiest to maintain”. The
story noted that “vinyl liner pools can develop a tear in the liner from
a sharp belt buckle” and “the entire liner slowly deteriorates in
sunlight” and must be periodically replaced. Money noted that gunite
pools are more expensive and because the “plaster surface is rougher
than … fiberglass it is more hospitable to algae and bacteria.” And, we
add that gunite pools often require re-painting and plastering.
How long does it take to install a pool manufactured by Royal Fiberglass
Usually 3 to 5 days, weather permitting.
What does installation involve?
A hole is excavated to accommodate the pool model that you have
purchased. Then, the bottom of the hole is contoured with sand to ensure
a perfect fit. The pool is lowered into position and leveled and, while
the pool is being filled, the sand is water-compacted around the edge to
lock it in place. All plumbing and electricity is connected, pump and
filter installed, decking built and, when completed, you are ready to
enjoy your Royal Fiberglass Pools, Inc. pool or spa.
How do you deliver the one-piece pool?
Depending on access, we normally truck-deliver the pool or spa to your
location and then lift it with a crane to its final resting place. There
have been situations where we have actually air-lifted pools into
position using a helicopter. And we have even delivered by water…using
the pool as a boat!
What kind of decking may I use around my pool?
The standard is a plain concrete deck. However, special coatings can

pool comes close.
