    fiberglass in oklahoma

    anyone have any advice on fiberglass pools, or more specifically in Oklahoma? They seem to be popular, just wondering what the cons are to them. We are thinking about a small pool (12X24), so they seem like a good match. Thanks for the help.

    The only significant disadvantage to fiberglass is that you are limited to shapes that can fit on a truck. Given the size you are interested in, that shouldn't be a problem. Fiberglass is also slightly more prone to metal stains, but that is usually easy enough to avoid. Fiberglass lasts longer than vinyl, and costs more also. Fiberglass is normally less expensive than gunite and easier to maintain. They install very quickly, which can be very nice.

    I have had a 12x24 white fiberglass pool for four year and am very happy with it.
