Fiberglass pools are an excellent option for Idaho residents. But you may be finding yourself wondering how long fiberglass pools actually last. Fiberglass pools will last many years. Some fiberglass pools will last up to 25-30 years. But it’s definitely a valid question and consideration given our local climate, as Idaho winters aren’t the most forgiving. And fiberglass pools are a big investment. So, let’s look at all the factors you need to consider when you want to invest in a fiberglass pool. How long do fiberglass pools last? 

Fiberglass Pool Longevity

At Mastercraft Pool & Spa, we’re certified dealers for the American-made Latham® fiberglass pool line, and for good reason. Latham fiberglass pools are the industry leaders for the strongest fiberglass pool construction. Their fiberglass pools are built in their American factories, and then shipped to you in one large piece. The Latham pool designs are built to flex with the changing Idaho climate. When your fiberglass pool freezes and thaws with the winter weather, you can rest assured that your Latham fiberglass pool will be just fine. 

This leads us to the question of longevity of your Latham fiberglass pool. Fiberglass pools are known to last a long time. Pinpointing an exact time frame is like predicting the future because there are several factors that will influence how long your pool actually lasts. But generally, if your fiberglass pool is well maintained, you can expect 20 years or more. 

Pool Maintenance

Speaking of maintenance, fiberglass pools do require regular pool maintenance, but let us tell you a secret, every swimming pool on the planet requires maintenance. And there are some qualities that are unique to a fiberglass pool that actually make maintenance a little easier. 

For example, Latham fiberglass pools’ high-quality manufacturing process ensures that they should handle Idaho winters (and summers!) beautifully, but you should prioritize proper and professional winterization. And algae is often more resistant to growing on the sides of fiberglass pools, but you should still regularly brush to keep other debris down. 

Not only that, but proper chemical maintenance of your pool water goes a long way to the longevity of your fiberglass pool. If your chemicals are imbalanced they can become corrosive or lead to build up on your pool surfaces. So proper pool maintenance can ensure that your fiberglass pool lives a long, full life, happily for you and your family.

Ultimately, a fiberglass pool is a great option for Idaho families. They’re beautiful and functional, and they last a long time. We can help guide you to the perfect design for your needs. Latham pool offers more options than any other pool manufacturer. And you have customization options for inlaid tile, lighting, and built-in water features.
