Fiberglass pools are casted from a mold, and compared to concrete pools, this is extremely limiting; the preset molds used to caste fiberglass pools have only so many sizes and designs, limiting end manufacturing and production. Concrete pools are poured on the spot, and thus can be customized to fit any design and size that homeowners could possibly envision. Such additions as hot tubs, water features and rock formations are commonplace in concrete pools, however are out of reach to fiberglass pool owners due to the nature of the construction methods.
Premolding said fiberglass pools creates additional complications; during transit from the manufacturer to homes, fiberglass pools have been known to develop warps that may not be apparent until seated into the ground. Furthermore, warps and hairline cracks can develop due to shifting sand backfill during a heavy storm as soil erodes, leading to costly expenses.
