Flexible, for cold weather climates in particular, when the ground freezes it moves significantly. This condition cracks in-ground concrete swimming pools because they are so rigid, but fiberglass flexes and returns to it's original shape, it is why we can warranty it against cracking and gunite cannot. Strength, with a tensile strength of 28,346 psi (the pressure required to fracture one square inch of our Michigan pools) a San Juan Pool is 17 times stronger than concrete, we can withstand ground movement, abnormal soil conditions, freezing, thawing and even earthquakes without damage! Maintenance, fiberglass requires no expensive acid washes ( $400 to $600), no replastering about $8,000 for a typical 16' x 32' pool, no liner replacement about 3,500 for a standard size pool, and rquires about half of the chemicals of these other swimming pools. It's surface is permanent and is nearly impervious to damage.
Repairability, if damage should occur we can repair the area as if no damage had ever happened, unlike concrete. Can you fix a crack in your driveway to be invisible? No! Vinyl liner patches are unsightly and not permanent. So while a fiberglass Michigan Pools may be slightly higher in initial cost it will save you thousands on maintenance, utilities and chemicals.
