In a hectic, fast-paced world, your backyard can become a place of reflection and restoration.

Quality Over Quickness

Proper pool installation is a combination of artistry and engineering. It’s meant to last a lifetime and provide decades of stress-free enjoyment. So we believe providing the highest level of craftsmanship and attention to detail is the most important part of the process. While some may choose to promise “quick installs,” we’d rather focus on ensuring each project is completed to our exacting standards, with no corner cut and every detail considered.

For us, each pool installation is unique. We take into account variables such as your specific backyard layout, ground conditions and access points. Our focus is always on the least possible impact to your property. This means we invest a great deal of time and effort in planning the excavation process, to properly lay out underground gas and power lines as well as trenches for the pool itself. Preserving your backyard and ensuring the proper stability and structural integrity of your inground pool is always top of mind. 

By investigating the ground conditions, choosing the right backfill that surrounds the pool and taking into account any of your property’s unique land features, we can make certain that your pool is stable and durable for a lifetime of enjoyment. 

Our decision-making is guided by a deep understanding of structural engineering, ensuring structural stability for the entire project. Having been called upon to provide extensive corrective repairs for pools which have been poorly installed when speed was the top priority, we’ve witnessed first hand all that can go wrong.

Our goal is to prevent other homeowners from making the same wrong decision which often ends up requiring a pool reinstall. We’re proud to do things correctly on the first try so you don’t have to worry about an issue arising in a few years.

The Luxury Sensation

Indulge in the Luxury Experience of a Fiberglass Pool

Fiberglass pools have become the gold standard in pool materials options for good reason. A fiberglass pool offers you the luxury of less maintenance and more enjoyment, allowing you to spend time in the pool rather than cleaning it. Today’s fiberglass pools surpass any other type of material on the market, making them the perfect choice for homeowners who demand the best in luxury and convenience.

Discover Why Fiberglass Pools Are the Best Kept Secret in Backyard Pool Design

Get to know why fiberglass pools are the right choice for your Utah home. Fiberglass pools offer a safer environment and more secure investment over concrete gunite pools.

Benefits of Fiberglass Pools

Enjoy a Cleaner Pool Experience

Fiberglass pools often require less chemicals thanks to their solid, smooth surface of fiberglass. Debris is more easily filtered and removed, unlike with the porous nature of concrete which can harbor residue and require far more harsh chemicals to maintain safe water pH levels. Less chemicals mean there is less of an impact on skin, hair, and eye health and supports overall wellness. This is particularly important for families with small children, whose smaller bodies cannot process chemicals as effectively as adults. And since we know children love being in their backyard pool as much as possible, this is certainly a factor to consider.

— Frequently Asked Questions —

About Fiberglass Pools

Thanks to their smooth nature, fiberglass pools can provide an added safety feature compared to concrete which can cause major injuries upon impact. Fiberglass pools with an eight-foot depth can sustain diving in ways that a similarly sized concrete pool cannot.

Some homeowners worry that a fiberglass pool may be too slippery. There are many reasons why you don’t need to worry about a slippery fiberglass surface. First, if you do experience an extra slick surface, know that this is most likely temporary and a part of the new pool experience. It is most likely due to some protective wax residue left from the factory build and should subside in a few months. Also, there are many non-slip options, such as non-slip steps and non-slip pool floors, along with various peel and stick underwater tape accessories that can be added.

It’s a common misconception that choosing fiberglass limits your pool options. In the past, this may have been the case, but today, fiberglass pool choices are virtually limitless, with numerous shapes, sizes and features. You’ll also have the ability to include special features like tanning ledges, swim-up bars and pool/spa combinations.

Fiberglass pool installation requires extreme precision. Also requires the knowledge and experience dealing with various types of soil and groundwater. Fiberglass pool installation differs from a concrete gunite pool install in many ways, although pool plumbing and electrical schematics are quite similar.

— Choosing the Right Pool —

For Now and the Future

The fiberglass pool manufacturing landscape boasts numerous brands, each with its own strengths and areas of focus. While some prioritize structural integrity, others emphasize surface longevity or color vibrancy. Some manufacturers excel in offering a diverse range of shapes and sizes, while others focus on innovative designs and functionality. Additionally, customer service, warranty terms, and affordability are key variables across different brands. That’s why it helps to have an experienced team, like Pools and Boulders there to help you through the process.

Having access to numerous options makes choosing the “best” manufacturer a complex decision. We believe you can find the perfect match by asking the right questions. While you’re beginning the decision-making process, it’s important to consider several key factors:

By carefully considering these questions and researching different manufacturers, you can make an informed and confident decision when choosing a fiberglass pool manufacturer for your backyard oasis. Remember, the “best” manufacturer boils down to the one that aligns perfectly with your needs, preferences, and long-term vision.

Explore Our Process

Curious about how a new fiberglass pool installation will go? Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of our process:

1. Design and Permitting

Initial consultation: Here we’ll discuss your vision, budget, and any potential concerns. We’ll  help you finalize the design, size, and features of your pool to match your vision for a beautiful backyard oasis.

Pool permit: We take care of the permit application process, which involves submitting the pool design, site plans, and engineering reports to your local building department.

2. Excavation and Site Preparation

Site preparation: We will mark the pool’s outline, clear the area of any debris or vegetation, and ensure proper drainage.

Excavation: We will carefully dig the hole according to the pool’s dimensions and the ground conditions.

3. Setting the Pool Shell

Delivery and placement: Your fiberglass pool shell will be delivered to the site. A crane will carefully lift and position the shell into the excavated hole.

4. Plumbing and Electrical Installation

Plumbing: Pipes and fittings will be installed to connect the pool to your filtration system, and other essential equipment.

Electrical: Conduit and wiring will be installed to power the pool’s pump, lighting, and any other electrical features. Safety measures like grounding are strictly followed.

5. Leveling and Backfilling

We use our engineering experience to meticulously level the pool shell, ensuring it’s properly supported. The space around the pool will be backfilled with compacted gravel to provide stability.

6. Coping, Decking, and Final Touches

Coping: The top edge of the pool will be finished with concrete or coping stones or pavers of your choosing to create a clean and polished look.

Final touches: Depending on the agreement, we could install deck jets,  waterfalls or other pool features. This is also the point where boulders and block walls can be added and land prepped for landscaping.

7. Pool Startup and Test

Pool automation and testing: Once everything is in place, your pool will be automated. The pool’s filtration system, pumps, lighting, and other features will be thoroughly tested to ensure proper functionality and safety.

Chemical balancing: The pool water will be tested and treated with the appropriate chemicals to achieve and maintain proper balance for safe and enjoyable swimming. We’ll show you how to operate your pool, provide safety guidelines as well as instruction on proper maintenance.

Maintenance-free Enjoyment for All Seasons

Dreaming of a backyard oasis that requires minimal maintenance? Fiberglass pools are your answer! Unlike concrete gunite pools, fiberglass is incredibly easy to maintain, requiring significantly less effort and fewer chemicals. If continuous maintenance or high cost regular pool services aren’t on your wishlist, fiberglass pools provide the no-hassle option.

Here’s why fiberglass is the perfect choice if you want to enjoy swimming in your pool rather than spend your time maintaining it:

Low-maintenance:

Enjoy crystal-clear water with minimal effort using a salt system and occasional balancing additives.

Durable and long-lasting:

Fiberglass is built to last and won't fade or crack like concrete.

Cost-effective:

The costs of pool maintenance companies for concrete pools can become too much for many families. Fiberglass's low chemical needs can save you significant money by removing the need for a service contract and allowing for simple DIY maintenance.

Winter-friendly:

Fiberglass efficiently insulates your pool, making winter heating in Northern Utah significantly more affordable compared to concrete.
